A New Culture of Collaboration, Innovation at NGA (Ep. 66)

April 10, 2018 Jeff Kelly

The federal government, particularly the armed services, is known for its top-down power structure. But the concept of small, autonomous teams empowered to make their own decisions, as is the case in modern software development, is catching on at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Jeff and Dormain speak with Keith Strini, head of the federal practice at Pivotal, and Timmy Richardson, lead cloud architect at NGA, about the agency's adoption of cloud-native technologies and development techniques, and how they are helping a new generation of military personnel accomplish their missions faster, safer and more efficiently with software.
