To deliver on this strategy, NGA will pursue five key initiatives focused on addressing the needs of mission today and grounded in industry-leading practices. These key initiatives will empower people, improve processes, and leverage industry-leading technology.
NGA applications are too difficult to build and update as mission needs change, and NGA’s technology leaders rarely have full transparency or authority over the applications in use across the Agency. This approach to application development and management spreads resources thin and starves the builders and makers of the tools they need to deliver products at the speed of mission.
An ecosystem that provides modern development tools, facilitates compliance with security standards, and streamlines processes for implementation on all security domains. A development and deployment platform to support modern DevSecOps practices and API-first development.
NGA’s pivot to a more consistent DevSecOps experience for builders and makers will significantly improve its ability to design, develop, and deliver applications that support current and future GEOINT capabilities.
