CMA Announces Fast-Start DevOps FedRAMP based Solution

 March 10, 2016 | John Frey

(Platform)-as-a-Service [DaaS] solution available today through the CMA NIH CIO-CS Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC).  The solution integrates Red Hat’s OpenShift open source PaaS with NTT Data’s value-added professional services and BlackMesh’s FedRAMP compliant hosting infrastructure.  The result is a DevOps environment that streamlines the rapid development and deployment of new applications while meeting Federal Organization’s security and production requirements.

Joe Corini, CMA President stated: “Federal organizations are faced with a need to transform their environment to emphasize communications, collaboration, and integration between software developers and IT operations for efficiency and effectiveness.”  Corini added: “To ensure certainty of results for the government and eliminate complex procurement processes, the CIO-CS GWAC is uniquely suited to bring all of the elements of a complex solution – software, services, and cloud into a single orderable solution at a fixed price.

CMA’s DevOps-as-a-Service Solution [PaaS] addresses the challenge of delivering value and results in days instead of months.  The integration services are specifically designed to establish a new DevOps environment; creating a single team responsible for delivering new features meeting the requisite security and stability production environment requirements.  The DaaS Solution creates a shared application code base, and enables continuous integration, test-driven techniques and automated deploys. This minimizes problems in application code, infrastructure and configurations.  As a result, problems are typically much less complex, change requirements are smaller, and resolution times are faster.
