Let’s Talk Agile Webinar - Embracing Software Transformation with Digital Engineering and DevSecOps -- final
From Christi Babington
Software-enabled capabilities have unique technical properties that enable quick response to changing threats. Recognizing this, OSD is leading a set of interrelated initiatives to develop policy, guidance, training, and enterprise resources that will transform the way the Department acquires and deploys software. It enables the DoD to acquire software with modern software development practices and deliver performance at the speed of relevance in support of the National Defense Strategy.
Come join Mr. Nicolas Chaillan, as he discusses how the Department of Defense implemented DevSecOps using open source stacks to enable the continuous delivery of weapon capabilities in production, multiple times a day. There will be an opportunity for Q&A.
Mr. Nicolas Chaillan, a highly qualified expert, served as the first Air Force and Space Force Chief Software Officer, under Dr. William Roper, the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, Arlington, Virginia. He was also the co-lead for the Department of Defense Enterprise DevSecOps Initiative with the Department of Defense Chief Information Officer. As the Air Force’s senior software czar, Mr. Chaillan was responsible for enabling Air Force programs in the transition to Agile and DevSecOps to establish force-wide DevSecOps capabilities and best practices, including continuous Authority to Operate processes and faster streamlined technology adoption.
To keep up with the pace of technology, Mr. Chaillan evaluated and authorized new commercially available off-the-shelf software and cloud-related technologies to help with their adoption across various Air Force programs based on their mission needs.
Mr. Chaillan is a sought after adviser and speaker, including participation in multiple industry conferences and experience working in close collaboration with many Fortune 100 companies and the U.S. Government.
