Tactical Edge Leads ExLog VIII Rapid Application Development Effort
In support of the Installations and Logistics Department of the United States Marine Corps, Tactical Edge was a participant in the Expeditionary Logistics (EXLOG) Wargames VIII. EXLOG was broken up into five distinct Focus Areas, each tasked to examine different technologies and methodologies and see how they could be beneficial to the warfighter if incorporated into the Marine Corp. Tactical Edge ran the Rapid Application Focus Area which looked at applying the Rapid Response and Integration (R2I) effort of Software Development. The R2I process takes the current acquisition requirements as defined by the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS), and maps them to an Agile-based methodology incorporating User Stories, Product Backlogs, and sprint cycles to build small, light-weight applications that can delivered quickly and hosted on a well-architected platform. The video provides a high level overview of the work that was accomplished for ExLog VIII.
