With pressure to better respond to evolving agency needs, do more with less, and all that jazz, government agencies are turning to modern tools and DevOps practices to help developers become more efficient in delivering innovative solutions.
Oh DevOps, DevOps.
You hear time and again how it’s the future of application development and deployment. You’re told you need to implement it and engrain its best practices across your organization.
But making a shift from the old way of doing things, however error-prone, slow, or disruptive it may be in comparison to the agility and utility that DevOps promises, is no easy task.
Hybrid clouds are increasingly seen by government agencies as a comfortable solution to both their desire and mandates to move to the cloud. Highly sensitive data can be stored on-premises in a private cloud – using their existing infrastructure – while lower risk data and non-sensitive computing workloads can be placed in the public cloud or where they fit best. Hybrid clouds also let agencies quickly move when situations change.

“Responsibility for secure open software is, well, complicated,” writes Government Computer News. It’s not just complicated; it’s also perhaps one of the most misunderstood aspects of open source software development.
You’ve no doubt read that open source software (OSS) is more secure than proprietary software because the code is genuinely hardened thanks to reviewers in the open source community who have tested it, tried to break it, and then fixed the problems they uncover.
