Digital transformation, application modernization, faster service delivery – these terms are being thrown around so much that they’ve become so ubiquitous as to be meaningless.

As their first and largest government reseller, DLT was thrilled to have been a part of this journey with Red Hat achieving this benchmark success. We proudly accepted […]
2016 is/was the year Gartner predicted that DevOps would go mainstream. But a big challenge for government IT operations is how teams can modernize software development while still operating their traditional apps and infrastructure. After all, according to federal CIO Tony Scott, the U.S. government spends 76% of its $88 billion IT budget on operating […]
The scene I recently ran into some problems compiling code while building a docker image using a Dockerfile. The compile process wasn’t working, so the failed `make install` was stopping the container image from being built. There’s 3 ways I could have approached troubleshooting this failed build. I used what I’m calling a “checkpoint container” […]
Delivering apps quickly and on a budget is a common challenge for government IT. But there is a path to developing and delivering apps faster – it’s one that uses the building blocks of PaaS and DevOps.
