Abstract:

Software and information technology service providers and Department of Defense acquisition programs face common problems and share common goals. The software and services industry must deliver solutions that meet customer needs cost effectively while providing a profit margin and DoD programs need software solutions that meet cost, schedule, and performance objectives. The drive to achieve those goals has spurred process and development initiatives in industry and DoD, with each entity leveraging the advances in the other. This continuous search for improvement is as much a journey as a destination, as we examine new opportunities for improving the quality, cost, and timeliness of software capabilities.
