GSA to Implement Mobile Device Use Into DevSecOps

The General Services Administration plans to integrate mobile devices into its DevSecOps activities in 2019 as the agency expects potential productivity boosts, Fedscoop reported Thursday.

David Shive, the agency's chief information officer, said during the VMware Public Sector Innovation Summit that mobility is essential due to the growth of mobile device use among citizens. Referencing real-time analytics, he pointed out that almost half of 300k consumers used mobile devices to access federal websites during his speech.

Shive also said that GSA has the capacity to help other federal agencies transition into a mobile-enabled organization. The DevSecOps approach integrates security, engineering and operational activities to develop new technologies.
