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.

Fighting Cloud “Sticker Shock” with FinOps

Those of our readers “seasoned” enough to remember how cellular phones and phone plans worked prior to the proliferation of nationwide and global unlimited voice and data plans most likely remember – rather unfondly – the dread they would feel…

DevSecFinOps? Introducing FinOps in the Public Sector

We all know what the different parts of DevSecOps stand for and why there has been a movement to make each of these disparate elements work in tandem to accelerate and improve the application development process. By having the “Sec”…

Exploring the Cyber Risks of Microservices

As the need to develop applications more quickly – at the pace of innovation – has increased and as government agencies have looked to introduce more scalability into the application development process, software development teams have moved away from developing…

Everything-As-Code Everywhere All at Once

As software and applications have become more mission-critical across the government, the need to develop and deploy new solutions and capabilities to the workforce quickly has increased. The need to rapidly develop and deploy secure applications has given rise to…

DevSecOps, ATOs, and Segregation of Duties – Can These Things Coexist?

Government agencies and military organizations have historically placed barriers between the development and deployment of new applications – and for very good reason. When sensitive constituent data is on the line, it’s essential that these applications are secure. And, in…

The Challenges that Agile Creates in the Public Sector

In the last episode of the ContinuousX Podcast, hosts Rick Stewart and Michael Fitzurka sat down with Cliff Berg, one of the coauthors of “Agile 2: The Next Iteration of Agile,” about the unintended consequences of the Agile method of application…

The Unintended Consequences of Agile

When the Agile Manifesto and the Agile approach to development were introduced, they were intended to provide a new, more efficient approach to application development that expedited processes and resulted in better products. However, much like with any new technology,…

DevSecOps as a Risk Management Strategy?

In the last episode of the ContinuousX Podcast, hosts Mike Fitzurka and Rick Stewart of TD SYNNEX Public Sector were joined by Cliff Berg, one of the coauthors of Agile 2: The Next Iteration of Agile, for a discussion about Agile…

Agile 2 – A New Approach to Agile for a Modern World

The Agile Manifesto that was released in the early 2000s was a massive step in the right direction for helping to eliminate or streamline complicated, impractical, or otherwise inefficient software development processes. The Agile Manifesto included four values and twelve…

The Monstrous Challenge of Modernizing Monolithic Systems

The COVID-19 pandemic drove massive digital transformation across both the private sector and the federal government. Government organizations and private enterprises, alike, turned to revolutionary new technologies and applications to enable them to work remotely, interact despite physical distance, and…

 

 

 

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.

In  GovDevSecOpsHub we’ll look at the evolution from traditional software and application development to the DevOps model. We’ll talk about the importance of moving from DevOps to DevSecOps. 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.
