HERNDON, VA – Karsun Solutions, an IT modernization firm serving the United States government, announced today the formation of a new DevOps practice within the Karsun Innovation Center. Samir Bham will head the new practice. Bham is a seasoned technical executive with over 25 years of experience.
Karsun Solutions was founded in 2009 with a focus on introducing both Agile and DevOps methodologies in government IT modernization initiatives. Karsun Solutions’ GoLean modern software development methodology incorporates robust DevOps/DevSecOps practices. The software development unit, utilizing GoLean as its methodology, was assessed at CMMI Level 5 Dev earlier this year. An AWS Advanced Consulting Partner, the firm was also recently awarded AWS Government Competency status.
The new innovation center practice takes DevOps adoption as core theme with employee enablement as its focal point. With the group’s founding comes a new focus on collaboration across programs and renewed focus on innovation for current clients. It also allocates specific resources toward developing offerings for future customers. Rather than targeting entry into a specific industry or agency, Karsun Solutions utilizes a capabilities-driven approach to new work. The Karsun Innovation Center identifies real world problems then proactively creates working solutions. Once these solutions are validated the firm seeks out new work ensuring customers are presented with proven approaches to their modernization challenges.
Under Bham, the DevOps Practice will increase resources for employee technical excellence and growth. The firm recently announced the opening of a new headquarters in Herndon, Virginia. The Karsun Innovation Center will be housed at this new location along with additional training facilities. The new DevOps Practice will utilize these resources to add new collaborative events and increase the professional development offerings available to Karsun team members.
