One Mission – Infinite Possibilites

SPEED CHESS

Dr. Will Roper (United States Air Force’s (USAF’s) Assistant Secretary for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics) has likened the quickness and flexibility of agile software development to playing speed chess.

In order for USAF to move at the speed of need and maintain its competitive warfighting edge in the internet era, it must undergo a digital transformation.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

To that end, Dr. Roper launched the Business Enterprise Systems Product INnovation (BESPIN) initiative in early 2019. Inspired by the USAF’s highly successful Kessel Run unit, BESPIN will drive the digital and mobile transformation of the Business Enterprise Systems (BES) Directorate in Montgomery, Alabama.

BES is responsible for providing comprehensive IT solutions to the over 750,000 military, civilian, and contractor personnel working in the USAF and managing a portfolio consisting of over 140 applications that must be actively maintained and modernized.
