Digital Engineering and DevSecOps

March 2021 Podcast
David James Shepard

David Shepard, a software developer with the SEI's Software Solutions Division, discusses digital engineering and its relationship with DevSecOps.

“The best and worst thing about software is that you can change it. That is one of the things that has for a long time differentiated software from hardware systems. But we are trying to change that with digital engineering. We are trying to make it easier to change hardware. That starts with modeling. You can iterate faster on things when it is a model in software than you can if you actually have to instantiate a hardware version of that thing that you are building.”
