Stacy Cummings: DoD Seeks to Advance Agile Software Development With Interim Policy

Stacy Cummings, principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for acquisition, said the Department of Defense will introduce in January interim rules that would allow DoD to focus more on DevOps and Agile software development, FCW reported Wednesday.

She said Wednesday at the Professional Services Council's Vision conference the Pentagon will launch by the end of the year provisional changes to its Directive 5000.01 to advance iterative development methods.

Cummings added that the software “path” in DoD’s adaptive acquisition framework will enable DevOps “software factories” to emerge that can follow rapid development processes and agile timelines.
