From the Paper:

"In defining the strategic implications for Intranet adoption within the military a three year planning horizon is used. Intranets as a technological platform for enabling collaboration throughout organizations have become pervasive, mainly due to the advent of Web 2.0 technologies (Bernoff, Li, 37, 38) and with their use, social networking-based applications. The use of Web 2.0-based technologies to better enable communications, collaboration, supply chain management, logistics and support services is becoming pervasive in all branches of the military (Bruno, 6). For all branches of the military to be able to better synchronize their operations, Intranets are critical for interprocess and intersystem integration."
