InfoWorld covers U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Chief Information Officer Mark Schwartz’s Devops Enterprise conference talk:

Schwartz said he knew he had to fight MD 102. “I brought in a bunch of agile coaches. I made up my own policy called MD 001 or something.” He declared that from now on, the department would be agile and would use eight core practices. Agile coaches were brought in, and Schwartz was appointed to a group that would rewrite MD 102. “Within a year, we had done 100-some-odd agile releases,” Schwartz said.
