"The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and the research institutions supporting it conduct extensive personnel analysis to manage and enhance America’s all-volunteer military forces. DOD desires a new data-hosting analytic computing resource—currently known as the Enterprise Data to Decisions Information Environment (EDDIE)—to
augment current data and collaborative capacities. This document presents collaboratively-developed research user requirements reflecting the desired user experience and developed in a manner consistent with the DOD Business Capability Acquisition Cycle (BCAC). We do not attempt to translate these user requirements into technical architectures or detailed computational specifications."
