Criminal Justice – Reboot

Now that we’ve got the IJIS CCC in place, we have re-booted development on our Adult Criminal Justice System.

Some things have changed since our last development cycle.  Most notably, we’ve changed vendors and methodologies.  Both of these are having an extremely high impact on our projects…

We’ve been moving toward an agile method for a while now at Tarrant County.  If you’ve ever worked in a Public Sector environment, you know agile and government are not exactly complementary.

Of course, it helps if you’ve got a good vendor to help you along the way and we are very fortunate to have found a vendor (XPedient Technologies) that is willing to be our partner (that in itself is worthy of a whole series of blogs).  Maybe it was by accident our perhaps some strange twist of fate, but we are finally starting to make progress to the ultimate goal!

We are coming up on the end of our first release and I think it’s fair to say, it’s been a learning experience for every one involved.  There is something to be said for Risk/Reward.

Look for a lot more in the coming month on my experiences with agile…
