managers (PMs) to plan and observe guidance in order to achieve a timely 
transition from WIN 7 to the next WIN OS version.

systems IT, operating in the Consolidated Afloat Network Enterprise Service

CANES OS fielding plan. CANES will begin to upgrade to WIN 10 in FY19 
therefore the program and funding plan for system and application migration 
to WIN 10 in FY19 and beyond should take place during the POM-18 budget 
cycle. Remaining Integrated Shipboard Network System (ISNS) and platform 
centric networks associated with LPD-17 Common Operating Environment, LCS
