Lets Be Modular Open Webinar Intersection of MOSA and Agile for the Competitive Edge - 20231214_190124
From Russell Shaver
DoD MOSA is an integrated business and technical strategy to achieve competitive and affordable acquisition and sustainment of a new or legacy system or component over the system life cycle. This approach allows the Department to acquire warfighting capabilities, including systems, subsystems, software components, and services, with more flexibility and competition.
It is imperative that the defense community improve the rate at which defense systems are delivered faster than competitors. We must learn and adapt in a rapidly shifting technological landscape. Agile and DevOps practices are key in being successful in speed to market and are no longer exclusive to software. MOSA aligns with these practices by promoting faster integration, easier upgrades, more competition, and increased operability. We will explore how the intersection of MOSA and embracing Agile and DevOps practices help to increase adaptability, shorter delivery schedules, reduced development costs, increased quality and higher transparency into delivery.
