Development, Continuous Integration and Modernization
Agile best practices and DevOps strategy
ICS provides an Agile Maturity Model to measure, report, and analyze progress towards realizing mature agility for enterprise software development. Our Agile capability extends to website and O&M efforts where we specialize in continuous integration and modernization solutions respectively. In every effort, we implement best practices and leading-edge solutions that enable ongoing maturity processes to be utilized. We publish maturity level and investment progress across parallel teams. With data that demonstrates degree of stakeholder engagement and our available self-service dashboards with status that is updated in real-time, we more effectively strengthen leadership and assure accountability.
Our services include portfolio planning, release and schedule management, application software enhancement, software engineering, enterprise architecture support, methodology maturity, process improvement, and more. We specialize in implementing a mature software development cadence that features high level release planning, sprint planning, and retrospectives with end users and stakeholders to ensure success. Our goal is to help customers realize a new paradigm of maturity and process integration so that products are delivered with the highest level of quality. Our approach utilizes continuous integration, automated testing, integrated security hardening, and continuous delivery as part of an overall DevSecOps strategy.
We focus on automating all facets of the continuous integration process with best-in class products for test automation scripting, security, and Agile best practices. At ICS, security is engineered from the beginning of the development process. We adhere to secure coding principles and reinforce protection of our products through delivery with continuous automated security testing.
Building on the mindset that everyone is responsible for security; building security and compliance testing; treating all artifacts like scripts, templates, images and blueprints with a high level of assurance; safe distribution of security decisions.
