Improving CIMIC and CMI Information Management

Following the 2016 Civil-Military Interaction (CMI) workshop report, the Allied Command Operations (ACO) Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe J9 established a working group with the task to collect and prioritize ACO CIMIC and CMI requirements for a CIMIC information management system.

During the first week of May, subject matter experts from the Allied Command Transformation, the ACO, the Multi-National CIMIC Group and the Zentrum ZMZ of the German Bundeswehr, Nienburg, are meeting for their second workshop at the CCOE.

The outcome of this meeting will result in a list of requirements needed to improve the collection, processing and sharing and CIMIC related data and documents. Next to the various break-out session the CIMIC colleagues from Nienburg demonstrated their CIMIC Information Management Database, which has been used during several Joint Cooperation exercises. The CCOE facilitates this workshop with in-house expertise.
