DLA's Application Modernization Strategy
We’ve baked cybersecurity into how we do [IT modernization] within DLA. You mentioned some Dev/Sec/Ops models and things of that nature. It's all part of the modernization journey to where you're using software-as-a-service, low code, no code. But as you use low code, no code, you want to do it within a Dev/Sec/Ops model. So that cybersecurity is thought of through the development testing, as well as deployment phases. For us, within DLA, with the number of applications we have, setting up this Dev/Sec/Ops factory allows us to really more efficiently control our costs, when you have a bunch of system integrators coming into your agency, they all have their own flavor of tools they like to use.
