DevSecOps Days: Accelerating the Implementation of cATO


Presented By: Dr. Kuan H. Collins, Director, Innovation Factory Huntsville, SAIC


SAIC’s Innovation Factory Hub in Huntsville and SAIC Center for Innovation Leadership at the Invention to Innovation Center (I2C) at the University of Alabama Huntsville’s mission is to help government organizations with establishing a culture of innovation, collaboration and learning. At DevSecOps Days on 20th and 21st September 2022, we focus on cATO, and partner ecosystems that enables the rapid delivery of secure and innovative software solutions to stakeholders using modern, efficient approaches that reduce the risk and friction of exploring emerging technologies and applying them to customer missions.


SAIC has collaborated with several organizations from academia, startups and vendors. In particular, we are collaborating with University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH) Invention to Innovation Center (I2C) – The I2C will house the SAIC Center for Innovation Leadership and Software Factory. This focuses on helping our government customers with workforce modernization and upskilling; event space for challenges/prize competitions/hackathons; recruitment of highly skilled talent in emerging technology areas and methodologies; mentor program for small business and non-traditional startups; and emerging technology sandbox environments for our customers.


Through this discussion, we create a common language and consistent focus on strategic alignment across your organizations. Creating common language around various entrepreneurship, innovations, methodologies, tools, and leadership concepts enables consistent and candid conversation among the leaders and the workforce. This alignment drives transparency, accountability, and fosters healthy conflict throughout your organization. Consistent focus on this strategic alignment increases the buy-in and engagement of the leaders, resulting in an organization positioned for success.


SAIC and its Innovation Stakeholder ecosystem are committed to innovation, research and practice, and a relentless focus on stakeholder mission success and ROI. The Innovation Factory Hub in Huntsville approaches unite highly interactive, participatory learning, and exceptional content with academic rigor and theoretical excellence. The Innovation Factory Huntsville Team has deep practical customer experience and a passion for teaching others, an approach that creates effective, efficient, and engaging learning experiences.
