What do DevOps and Agile have to do with procurement? How can governments use DevOps, Agile and modular contracting to implement new systems, and modernize legacy systems? This talk will describe how DevOps and agile share common traits with the idea of modular contracting - breaking large contracts up into smaller, interconnected pieces.
