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 difference 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 things that serve the needs of multiple departments. Karthik Consulting has nearly eight years of experience helping Government customers like the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the USDA learn the principles of agile software, modernize legacy applications, integrate with newer cloud-based systems, and transition teams from waterfall to agile methodologies.
- 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
Is your team looking to modernize its legacy applications? Karthik Consulting has helped its Government customers like the Office of Naval Research develop strategic roadmaps to modernize legacy applications and integrate them to operate on a common technology platform and architecture.
- 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 USDA Office of Communications perform system integration testing (SIT) as they built and deployed new sites and 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.
- 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.
- Waterfall to Agile Transition
Is your team looking to move from waterfall development processes to an agile workflow? The experts at Karthik Consulting can help your team learn to create sprints instead of tasks and schedules, create lists of deliverables for the sprints, and create a process to review deliverables at the end of a sprint, keeping the project stakeholders engaged throughout the process. Trust the experts at Karthik Consulting to help your team learn the differences between the two methodologies and help you and your team make a successful transition.
- Content Management Systems
Does your agency use a content management system like SharePoint, Drupal, or WordPress? Karthik Consulting has helped agencies like the USDA Office of Communications use agile workflows to define governance to build new sites and applications upon their existing Drupal Web Content Management Platform and can help your agency move to a more agile, collaborative, and real-time approach to content management.
- 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.
Prototyping is one of the core components of the agile development process and are developed and produced to demonstrate anticipated capabilities. Karthik Consulting has designed, developed, and deployed prototype applications for our clients at the US Army Combat Readiness Center (USACRC) using Microsoft Visual Studio, C#, and ASP.NET to help them develop assessments to manage occupational hazards.
- Drupal 8 Services
Does your agency use Drupal 8 for your Content Management System? Karthik Consulting has helped agencies like the USDA Office of Communications build upon their Drupal 8 web content management platform to define governance to build and deploy new sites and applications using agile guiding principles.
