The Treasury FMS needed a way to
deliver better software solutions to its internal customers.
Due to outdated software development and project management
methodologies, software projects were consistently behind
schedule, over budget, and becoming unmanageable. Accordingly,
GB-Sys was contracted to provide transformative Agile Coaching
and Business Process Re-engineering for the software
development efforts of the Treasury FMS. Under contracts
TFMS-HQ-11-C-0002 and TFMS-HQ-13-K-0023, GB-Sys’ team of
approximately fifteen (15) personnel consisting of Agile
coaches, business analysts, project managers, developers,
testers, cloud architects, and business process engineers
analyzed the FMS’ existing software development practices and
transformed/re-engineered those processes into an Agile
Software Development model, enabling the FMS to more rapidly
and effectively meet their software development needs.
Part of this project also required the implementation of new software development and testing environments running alongside, and in parallel with, the existing systems in order to improve software development productivity and minimize the impact on current operations. GB-Sys seamlessly designed and provisioned new development and testing environments for the Treasury FMS in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.
Today, as a result of GB-Sys’ business process re-engineering and Agile coaching efforts, and the new cloud-based development and testing environments GB-Sys implemented, the Treasury FMS is meeting all of their software development needs, on time and within budget, using their original software developers.
