    What SDLC methodology documentation provides guidance to DoD Components developing Cloud Service Systems - JCIDS IT Box?


    Answer

    The IT-Box is a Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) process that provides the required flexibility to take full advantage of evolving commercial information technology as it applies to information technology programs.  The application of a System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process to "Cloud" development ensures the identification of project risks as well as the following of a multi-progression process from requirements analysis thru design. 
     
    The documentation process of each SDLC methodology (code &fix, structured development, prototyping, agile development, etc.) should meet the "control" requirements of FedRAMP and NIST SP 800-53.  It seems like agile would be the best fit more most cloud development, however, there are always exceptions.  Because of these exceptions it would be difficult, if not impossible; to have an effective policy that mandates a specific DoD wide SDLC.
