Agile Software Development

We understand the people doing the work and how they work together.

KC modernizes legacy applications, integrates newer cloud-based systems, and transitions government agency teams from waterfall to agile methodologies.

Agile Software Development is one of the biggest trends in DevOps, and for good reason. Agencies purchasing solutions like ServiceNow or Splunk aren’t just buying IT helpdesks; they’re buying development platforms that can help tie together different pieces of the organization. These platforms allow for cloud-based development that can modernize in-house applications and systems and tie them into a larger organizational infrastructure that’s designed to work together. Agile processes are meant to be iterative and collaborative. They rely on small, iterative changes from a range of stakeholders that can enable an organization to build solutions that serve the needs of multiple departments. KC has over a decade of experience helping Government customers like the Office of Naval Research (ONR), US Coast Guard (USCG). and the US Space Force (USSF) learn the principles of agile software, modernize legacy applications, integrate with newer cloud-based systems, and transition teams from waterfall to agile methodologies.

Key Capabilities

Agile Dev Ops
The Agile methodology has gained traction due to its flexibility and ability to generate self-organizing, cross-functional teams. Karthik Consulting has brought the Agile methodology to DevOps through mature processes supporting overall Quality Assurance, Project Planning, Project Monitoring and Control, Measurement and Analysis, and Risk Management. All software development projects we execute follow these processes and are audited by the independent QA team.
Legacy Application Modernization
Karthik Consulting helps its Government customers like the USCG develop strategic roadmaps to modernize legacy applications and integrate them to operate on a common technology platform and architecture.
Agile at Enterprise Scale
Is your agency looking to implement Agile DevOps at an enterprise scale? Karthik Consulting has helped our clients like the US Army Combat Readiness Center (USACRC) develop an Agile DevOps process that supports their software development team to deploy applications across the enterprise. Karthik Consulting put in place mature processes supporting overall Quality Assurance, Project Planning, Project Monitoring and Control, Measurement and Analysis, Risk Management, and Content Management.
Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
As your team begins to adopt agile development workflows, bring this methodology to your software development lifecycle with Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). While SDLC focuses on software development, ALM brings a more comprehensive approach that includes the governance, development, maintenance, and decommissioning of software that lets your team deliver new features continuously. Karthik Consulting has included ALM in our Agile DevOps process for clients like the US Army Combat Readiness Center (USACRC) and can bring this expertise to your organization.
Systems Integration
Are you looking to integrate a new site, a new application, or a new workflow into your existing system? Karthik Consulting has helped agencies like the USSF Defensive Cyber Operations-Space (DCO-S) perform system integration testing (SIT) as they build and deploy new applications using agile guiding principles to ensure data integrity and system operation in accordance with user expectations.
Cloud-based Development
Did your agency just purchase a cloud-based platform like Splunk or ServiceNow and are looking to develop unique applications for your new platform? Trust Karthik Consulting to help you develop new, cloud-based apps to suit your needs and perform the testing and validation needed to integrate your new cloud-based applications into existing systems. KC was the prime contractor for building and maintaining the Joint Common Foundation (JCF) environment for building AI/ML capabilities for DoD- Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC). As part of this exercise, KC analyzed the roadmap and organization objective of building an environment whereby any DoD members (Navy, Army or Air Force) can get into this environment (through authorization and approvals) through a portal, pick the tools and environment they want, build / train their models, test and take the artifacts as a container or other mode of deployment to their environment.
Prototyping is one of the core components of the agile development process and is developed and produced to demonstrate anticipated capabilities. Karthik Consulting has designed, developed, and deployed prototype applications for our clients like at the JAIC. KC was involved in building prototypes, standards, templates for the JAIC’s chief design officer. These prototypes were used to onboard any new projects, new capabilities, new sets of organizations and its users into JAIC. KC created Terraform scripts to dynamically build and tear down the JCF environment by segments; Integrate with Key Cloak for Single Sign On (SSO); Worked in GSA AWS environment to test various Terraform scripts; Created the JCF development VPC with the required tools; Supported Robotic Process Automation (RPA) efforts by designing and developing software for JAIC.
