With pressure to improve performance and expand service delivery within a cost-constrained environment, Federal CIOs recognize that it is now time to retire inefficient Waterfall-based development practices that lead to bloated budgets, multi-year delivery windows, and inability to flex to meet the changing demands on their agencies.
Whether modernizing aging systems or pursuing cloud, mobile or Big Data implementations, Federal IT departments are embracing the Agile values, principles, and practices that have long been the norm in the commercial world. In addition to accelerating the availability of enhancements, Agile approaches can reduce risk by delivering working functionality (instead of merely plans and designs) throughout the course of the solution development effort. Agile for Gov® (A4G®) is CSRA’s framework for rapid delivery of high value, quality working software for Federal customers.
