Agile Software Lifecycle Management

In response to increasingly-rapid changes in technologies and systems engineering practices, TEK•FIVE has developed and successfully implemented an agile software lifecycle management approach in which scrum and agile development techniques are the engine of change, and in which our considerable experience in software development provides the stability and structure for the effective management of change. Central to this approach is the integration of the user in the process and the employment of very short development cycles, known as sprints, which allow applications to be fielded while they are still applicable to evolving requirements.

Our project managers are scrum certified with real-world experience in delivering software solutions utilizing the agile approach.


DevOps

DevOps is the combination of the application operational support functions and development support functions under a single support team with distinct units to ensure controls and separation of duties. More and more industries are moving to DevOps as opposed to the traditional operational model, which places a barrier between developers and technical resources. Developers are required to work with business owners to understand the needs of the community, and therefore must be more agile in their development and always seeking opportunities for change. Technical operations, those who have been entrusted with “keeping the lights on”, seek stability and must ensure availability of the systems. Just as agile development eliminated the barriers between the business community and the developers, DevOps does so for development and operations.

TEK•FIVE can implement the DevOps concept of operations within the Federal Government Sector, which traditionally relies upon rigid project management methodologies due to our experience at implementing DevOps at NASA.
