Software Engineering

Produce products that create experiences users want and increase business value.

Build Better Products - Faster

At its core, software engineering aims to solve a litany of human problems through coded and other digital solutions. For government agencies, this means creating software that makes it easier for workers to do their jobs well and for citizens to access the public services they need.

However, in today’s chaotic digital landscape, software products must not only solve your “here-and-now” problems, but also be flexibly built to address emerging changes.

GovCIO product teams have the experience, proven Agile, DevSecOps, human-centered processes, and best-in-class technologies to build powerful software products that meet your users’ needs and deliver business value.

We Build Products To...

work for your environment

GovCIO views products holistically within the context of your broader ecosystem to ensure we consider the needs of all users, stakeholders, business units, and mission areas when designing and building products.

be useful for stakeholders and users

Driven by Human-Centered Design, we integrate Behavior Driven Development to focus on customer and end-user experience and intended application behavior, going beyond business requirement aspect.

evolve with you

We use modern architectural approaches, such as microservices and APIs, to make sure your products can adapt to your evolving objectives.Incorporating microservices significantly increases agility, availability, and scalability while API first methods bridge new and legacy systems and facilitate future legacy migrations.

be defect-free and secure

Our DevSecOps engineers create automated build, test, and deployment processes using Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) pipelines to minimize human error and risk. We integrate automated testing and security early and often within every CI/CD phase to drive quality, enhance resiliency, ensure compliance, and remediate defects earlier.

Hear From Our Experts

“Any time there’s a human touchpoint, it’s one potential breakdown, and there’s potential for error, so we want to try and eliminate that as much as possible by automating processes that are repetitive in nature, that don’t really provide a lot of value, so people can work on higher value tasks and then it makes it more repeatable. Not only can we deliver our product to the customer faster, but we can deliver it more securely so that they can be confident in the code quality that they have.”
