Agile Application Development and the Advisor Outcomes Platform

Three Wire Systems, VetAdvisor’s parent company, has established an Agile software development division – a highly skilled, cross-functional team with extensive experience in large scale (500,000+ user), enterprise-level applications. Three Wire develops “products with a purpose” and currently supports applications custom-built for Department of Defense (DoD) Family Programs serving service members, veterans, and their families. In fact, VetAdvisor itself is run on the Advisor Outcomes Plaform, an Open Source Software (OSS) case management system.

Three Wire’s Agile development practice and culture were recently reaffirmed when we were selected to be a part of the 18F Agile GSA BPA. 18F is a GSA consultant that, along with the US Digital Services (USDS), is attempting to revolutionize the way the Government purchases software. 18F’s mission is to bring private sector standards into public sector projects, with specific focus on Agile methodologies, rapid, iterative development, human centered design, and end-user research which results in robust, easy-to-use applications that fit today’s larger workflows.

Three Wire was selected by completing three prototypes in a time-boxed 36-hour delivery cycle. Sprints were split into 6 and 12 hours, and a highly Agile, cross-functional team produced prototypes using OpenFDA data. Only 16 companies were awarded a spot on the BPA. The Agile GSA BPS allows Three Wire an exclusive chance to bid on designated Agile projects.

Three Wire and VetAdvisor will continue to support service members, veterans, and their families though Agile development, OSS platforms, and cloud-based web services.
