              More About the DevOps Teams: The DevOps team is working closely with the other groups in the Engineering department to transition from a “startup” mindset to an “established company” mindset. This change has been a monumental testament to the talent in DevOps, the Engineering department, and ThreatConnect as a whole. DevOps specifically have been instrumental in setting up quality CI/CD pipelines that are actively in use by our Core development and QA departments. Internally, DevOps have also transitioned to Agile methodology using two week sprints. We are also currently establishing a proper testing practice for our configuration management systems. As part of this culture transition, there are still places where legacy code and systems can be seen, but we are diligently working to replace those in a controlled, testable, and scalable manner. At the Engineering level, management has been working closely with our Product Management team to revamp our internal roadmapping and feature request processes, allowing us to begin releasing ThreatConnect at a faster pace.
