    The Federal CIO’s IT strategy is oriented around three core objectives: (1) driving value in Federal IT investments, (2) delivering world-class digital services, and (3) protecting Federal IT assets and information. Prioritizing these three objectives will help build upon successes from key initiatives such as PortfolioStat, the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI), the launch of the U.S. Digital Service, and shifting to more agile development practices.

  13. The key in such a transition to continuous delivery is

    to expect things to get worse before you’ll be able to make them better. – Matthias Marschal
  14. All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;

    for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France

    Cloud Foundry? “It’s definitely around speed to market, but it’s also about getting it right faster,” George Sherman, JPMC CIO “From 100 days to minutes. That’s what Pivotal CF gives us.” Andy Zitney, Allstate “I said to my vendors, I don’t want five years ago. I want five years from now. Where is it going?” Richard Leurig, CoreLogic

    The price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change. - Bill Clinton
  18. • Micro-service Architecture and Principles • API first design Cloud

    Native • Design for failure • Apps are unaffected by dependant service failure • Proactive testing for failure • Metrics and monitoring baked in • Cloud agnostic runtime implementation Cloud Resilient • Twelve Factor App • Horizontally scalable • Leverage platform for HA Cloud Friendly • No file-system requirements or uses S3 API • Self contained application • Platform managed ports and addressing • Consume off platform services using platform semantics Cloud Ready Cloud Native Maturity Model
  19. Application Lifecycle Management: CI/CD Delivery High Quality Software, Faster and

    Continuously From Idea to Production Solution: Distributed revision control and source code management. Collaborative software development Solution: Build and test software projects continuously and incrementally. Hundreds of compatible plugins Solution: Share binaries and manage distributions. Manage artifact lifecycle. Avoid license violations Develop, test, QA and production on the same platform. Simple, developer friendly commands and APIs. Operational benefits for every app. Built-in ecosystem services. Deploy, operate and scale on any IAAS AUTOMATION. Integrate tools and automate processes from testing to builds and deployment SPEED. Release more frequently with smaller bits will reduce complexity and improve time-to-market QUALITY. Reduce feedback loop using test- driven development to surface problems sooner and be responsive AGILITY. Push updates on regular basis with no downtime to improve customer experience and time to market Commit Code Change Automate Build & Test (Unit Test, Static Code Analysis) Store Binaries & Build Artifacts Automated Integration Testing Acceptance, Performance & Load Zero Downtime Upgrade to Production Build Pipeline Operations Tool Chain Gitlab Jenkins Development Test + UAT + Staging Production Problem: Customers want to use Git distributed source code control system, yet maintain on-premise control of it Problem: Current application delivery pipeline is manual and error-prone, and lacks automation, scale, speed, transparency, compliance and reliability. Problem: Development requires management of binary artifacts to incorporate 3rd party components and track application binary artifacts
