Federal agencies are facing a perfect storm of budget uncertainty, increasing mission demand, and inflexible legacy applications. Combined with the standard waterfall SDLC, agencies are unable to address the primary challenge for IT – the need to change at least as fast as the business/mission. We call this ability Agile IT and it requires an innovative approach that combines several IT and management disciplines. The approach is driven from architecture – from the Enterprise Architecture on down. This briefing will outline the challenges facing Federal IT managers and will present a proven methodology for overcoming these challenges. A brief demonstration will show how this approach has been applied in a real world setting.
Agile IT combines best practices from Agile Methods, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Model-Driven Development (MDD) under a management framework known as Portfolio Transition Engineering (PTE).
Agile IT supports the Federal IT strategic direction from OMB and the CIO Council. It is a critical element in achieving the 25-Point Plan and complying with the Shared Services, Digital Government and Cloud First strategies.
