(ID), a premier global technology solutions provider specializing in Information Technology capabilities, announced it has partnered with Horne International to offer a suite of Agile technology solutions developed by ThoughtWorks Studios to the Federal Government. Through this relationship, ID will help federal customers adopt Agile processes enabled by ThoughtWorks Studios, including its Mingle® agile project management solution and ThoughtWorks Studios' Agile Workshops, Training and Coaching services.
This suite of products and services, combined with professional services from Intelligent Decisions, will assist the Federal Government with quickly and efficiently implementing an Agile methodology and immediately benefiting from its result oriented focus. The products and services will be available on ID's GSA Schedule (GS-35F-4153D) and SEWP IV Contract (NNG07DA28B).
Each year more than $4 billion in mission critical, IT development projects with Line of Business impact result in greater than a 50 percent failure rate across the Federal Government. Agile methodologies were pioneered for these types of software development projects and have proven a higher success rate, on time delivery and lower project cost than traditional waterfall SDLC models.

"By leveraging our experience in the Federal space, Intelligent Decisions is uniquely positioned to help Federal Agencies accelerate the benefits of adopting Agile approaches resulting in reduced time and cost, and unprecedented improvements in quality."
