Choosing the best technology in a sea of tools can be overwhelming. This is especially true in the public sector, where procurement can be a long and arduous process, and choosing incorrectly could set an organization's evolution towards a DevSecOps culture back significantly. The ContinuousX Podcast brings together DLT's App Life specialists, who combined have more than 70 years of software development and sales experience, to interview guests from the public sector arena (technology companies, SIs, agency executives, VARs, etc.). If you have an interest in learning about cutting-edge technologies or hearing about more mature technologies and their journeys of success (and learned failures along the way) in the Public Sector space, we think this podcast is for you.

We launched GovDevSecOpsHub to focus on the next evolution of application development, DevSecOps, which brings cybersecurity teams and tools into the development process sooner so that applications are more secure and safeguarded against cyber threats.

We’ll highlight the technologies and cultural changes necessary to make this shift happen. And we’ll profile government organizations and executives that are the “boots on the ground” as the government pivots towards the DevSecOps model.
