BETHESDA, Md., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- InfoZen, a leading provider of Agile Software Development, Cloud Managed Services, and related IT solutions for the public sector, announced today that it won a new three-year prime contract valued at approximately $12 million from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States.

Under the contract, InfoZen will work with the Agile Development teams to integrate and operate software products using open source tools to provide continuous software integration and delivery services in direct support of the USCIS business goal of a paperless electronic immigration system that will transform nearly all of the agency's processes.  InfoZen's scope of work encompasses integrating work products of up to twenty agile development teams, automating end-to-end development and DevOps processes, managing builds, and providing configuration control.  InfoZen will establish an Open Source-based Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) pipeline to enable a standardized and repeatable automated build and deployment environment to enable frequent delivery of high-quality software. 

"We greatly appreciate the opportunity to add our expertise to this innovative project for USCIS," said Raj Ananthanpillai, InfoZen's Chairman, CEO and President.  "This contract is critical for the success of the agency's large scale automation of current business processes, as well as deploying a modernized code base that is sustainable, cost-effective, and reusable.  We believe it can be a model for other agencies looking to leverage agile software development practices with CI/CD with the DevOps processes to enable rapid delivery of high quality software."

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
