As federal organizations have evolved their solution development and deployment practices – moving from waterfall to Agile methods and introducing DevSecOps and Cloud infrastructure into their tool boxes over the past decade – so too have they more recently evolved the technologies at the core of their solutions. While Open Source custom development has been popular for years, many have found that the reward has not matched the cost in terms of speed of development/deployment, quality and long-term O&M cost. Enter the latest wave of low-code and no-code platforms, like Salesforce, ServiceNow, Dynamics and Pega, which have fueled investment from the government that demands new skills and capability to leverage them.
At steampunk, we have taken a very focused approach, blending the needed technical skills for platforms like Salesforce with our Agile and DevSecOps expertise to offer the best of modern development methods with rich configurable platforms for quick return on development investment. We combine this with our Human-Centered Design approach to bring our clients’ mission owners into the design and development to tailor these platforms to produce rich multi-modal solutions that quickly solve mission requirements.
Some of the areas we focus on in our Platforms practice are as follows:
- Platform Architecture and Implementation
- Platform Governance Strategy and Implementation
- Legacy to Platform Migration Planning and Execution
- Agile Development Process Implementation for Platforms
