Since 2012, Parasoft has been working with a U.S. Department of Defense contractor in the aerospace and defense industry to improve the quality and security of their software. The contractor is a significant contributor to a major, long-running defense initiative. The nature of the project has evolved drastically during the tenure of Parasoft’s relationship with the contractor. Most recently, the DoD has announced plans to stand up DevOps pipelines to support the initiative.
A DevOps pipeline is an automated infrastructure that processes the code contributed to the project from various teams. As the code is checked in and pushed through the pipeline, test execution and code analysis jobs are continuously triggered. The continuous code quality activities provide feedback to software engineers and testers so that the build at the end of the pipeline meets the organization’s quality, security, and compliance goals. DevSecOps integrates security testing activities into the process.
The size and complexity of the project poses a significant challenge for all vendors involved. The purpose of this case study is to describe the company’s DevOps journey and highlight the technologies and processes that characterize DevOps and DevSecOps.
