 The SEI Technical Strategic Plan

By Kevin FallDeputy Director, Research, and CTO This is the second installment in a series on the SEI's technical strategic plan. Department of Defense (DoD) systems are becoming increasingly software reliant, at a time when concerns about cybersecurity are at...

 Is Your Organization Ready for Agile?

Government agencies, including the departments of Defense, Veteran Affairs, and Treasury, are being asked by their government program office to adopt Agile methods. These are organizations that have traditionally utilized a "waterfall" life cycle model (as epitomized by the engineering...

 Is Your Organization Ready for Agile?

In our work with the Department of Defense (DoD) and other government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and the U.S. Department of the Treasury, we often encounter organizations that have been asked by their government program...

 2012: The Research Year in Review

As part of our mission to advance the practice of software engineering and cybersecurity through research and technology transition, our work focuses on ensuring the development and operation of software-reliant Department of Defense (DoD) systems with predictable and improved quality,...

As part of our research related to early acquisition lifecycle cost estimation for the Department of Defense (DoD), my colleagues in the SEI's Software Engineering Measurement & Analysis initiative and I began envisioning a potential solution that would rely heavily...

By law, major defense acquisition programs are now required to prepare cost estimates earlier in the acquisition lifecycle, including pre-Milestone A, well before concrete technical information is available on the program being developed. Estimates are therefore often based on a...

 Towards Common Operating Platform Environments, Second in a Series

Common operating platform environments (COPEs) are reusable software infrastructures that incorporate open standards; define portable interfaces, interoperable protocols, and data models; offer complete design disclosure; and have a modular, loosely coupled, and well-articulated software architecture that provides applications and end...

 The Growing Importance of Sustaining Software for the DoD

Department of Defense (DoD) programs have traditionally focused on the software acquisition phase (initial procurement, development, production, and deployment) and largely discounted the software sustainment phase (operations and support) until late in the lifecycle. The costs of software sustainment are...
