MITRE-ATARC DevOps White Paper

March 1, 2018

The MITRE-ATARC DevOps Collaboration Symposium was held on March 1, 2018 in Washington, D.C. in conjunction with the ATARC Federal DevOps Summit. A White Paper was published summarizing the outcomes of each sessions.

DevOps topic areas:

  • DevOps Implementation with Cloud
  • Integration of Security into the DevOps Culture
  • DevOps in Health IT
  • DevOps and Test
  • DevOps Culture

Key recommendations to Government:

  • Start small – move one application into a DevOps environment to learn and demonstrate success and build on these early successes to build confidence and gain upper management support;
  • Embrace risk – learn from mistakes and make incremental improvements;
  • Break down silos among traditionally stove-piped organizations – pull individuals from different organizations to build cross-functional teams;
  • Provide training on Agile and DevOps philosophies and methodologies to all practitioners, not just to those in specific roles; and
  • Encourage cultural change with active leadership engagement, communities of practice, and continuing to make changes to grow and sustain the DevOps culture.
