The What

Application Modernization & Sustainment entails building and transforming new or legacy applications, designing interconnectivity between various applications, and ensuring secure, reliable Operations and Maintenance (O&M) for users. Applications are transformed to robust, future-ready systems by using industry best practices to analyze business requirements, human-centered design, secure development practices, performing automated and manual testing, and implementing for use in production environments for mission support.

This comprehensive process involves refactoring applications using modern architectural paradigms like microservices, containers, and serverless architectures, aimed at enhancing scalability and agility. Moreover, modernization initiatives often integrate Agile methodologies and DevSecOps practices to expedite incremental deployment while ensuring heightened security measures. Ultimately, the objective is to build new applications or transform outdated applications to secure, reliable, and optimized solutions that users can use to efficiently adapt to evolving business requirements.
