Who Should Attend: Government, Military, and Industry at all levels who want to learn about the tenets and principles of Agile and DevSecOps to promote change and collaboration within DoD programs and projects
Speaker: Mr. Jeffrey Smith
Description: The Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA) continues to drive digital transformation of personnel vetting and industrial security missions through the use of the DoD Adaptive Acquisition Framework, industry best practices, and a tenacious focus on the digital foundations for cloud services and data management. They have established an acquisition program focused on migrating mission and back-office systems to single DCSA Platform as a Service and enterprise data management capability that enables other software programs to focus on mission capabilities rather than the underpinning cloud and data configurations. Using an agile approach with regular capability releases, this program is expanding the service catalog by using Integrated Product Teams from mission and other acquisition program leaders to define and prioritize the requirements at an agency level and ensure architectures are aligned with DoD reference architectures.
Come join Mr. Jeffrey Smith to hear about their use of the Scaled Agile Framework for the development of National Background Investigation Services (NBIS) to manage, develop, and implement requirements using the scaled agile framework SAFe. There will be a Q&A portion.
