March 27th, 2023


Learn more about GDIT’s agile development work.

In an increasingly interconnected world, secure, uninterrupted communication is more critical than ever for success. From warfighters in theater to intelligence teams working behind the scenes, all require seamless coordination and real-time information sharing with stakeholders across the globe. The U.S. military must also have the capacity to rapidly deploy and effectively use critical applications on its infrastructure to maintain a strategic advantage.

As technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, agencies must adapt and innovate to stay ahead of adversaries and deliver the capabilities necessary to support mission objectives. Innovations like AI, machine learning, advanced deployable communications, IoT sensors, data lakes, and cloud migration are putting additional pressure on networks and data flows.

There are modern tools and technologies that can enhance communication networks and enable agencies to navigate the challenges and opportunities of the digital era.

Agile Development

Agile software development processes and service delivery methods allow for rapid development, testing, and deployment of updates. By embracing agile methodologies, organizations can ensure that they remain responsive to mission needs and continuously evolve their capabilities.

End-to-End Monitoring

Proactive maintenance and security are essential for the entire system. By integrating next-generation tools and technologies, federal agencies can drive security, responsiveness, and resilience for their communication networks.

Software-Driven Tools

Software-driven tools, such as software-defined networks for WAN and LAN, controllers, and virtual infrastructures, can accelerate both discovery and delivery of services. These tools enable agencies to rapidly adapt to new challenges and opportunities.

Studio-Video Teleconferencing (SVTC)

Secure and reliable communication is vital for essential missions, and SVTC technology offers a dependable solution. Developing expertise in deploying, securing, and maintaining this technology can be invaluable for sensitive, mission-critical scenarios.


Incorporating automated deployment, orchestration, and management tools whenever possible and practical can enhance efficiency and decision-making. Integrating API workflows with other tools allows for rapid AI/ML-based decision-making processes.

By focusing on understanding the environment, mission requirements, and technology, federal agencies can leverage the latest tools and techniques to achieve mission success. Embracing innovation and utilizing a modern approach to technology and processes will not only help agencies stay one step ahead of adversaries but also ensure that they remain responsive to the ever-evolving demands of their missions.

Collaborating with mission partners like GDIT can further provide agencies with the expertise and resources need to effectively implement these advanced tools and technologies. By working together, agencies and their partners can ensure secure, reliable communication networks that drive mission success.
