Government software development agencies are evolving as networks consolidate and security requirements tighten in the DoD. At the same time there is emphasis on migration to â¿¿the cloudâ¿ (external or internal service-based systems). What are the current practices in place at DoD software development establishments? How do these current practices within DoD compare to the state of the art in industry? What methodologies are needed for government software developers to continue supporting DoD systems? Are current tools promoting or hindering good software and security practices? Does this change when software development and deployment move to the cloud? This research addresses the knowledge gap: how are software development agencies in the federal government handling their responsibilities in light of ever-increasing security requirements and cloud migration?
We will develop a protocol for querying the various development groups, including questions to establish current practice and inhibitors; visit and interview real DOD software development groups to compare and contrast the tools and methodologies in place; document the metrics and mechanisms for transitions between development, test and production; and compare those practices and transitions to changes with cloud migration.
