    Team Beskar
    Centauri’s Team Beskar excels at continuously delivering products to our users in real time. By combining an agile software development process with DevSecOps methodologies, we’re able to continuously evaluate the likelihood of project success, and adjust on the fly, saving our customers time and money. By breaking down silos, we increase communications and shared knowledge during all phases of the delivery process.

    Like the Mandalorian steel that give us our name, Team Beskar provides our customers with hardened, resilient, and secure software to solve their toughest challenges.

    • Our solutions are rapid and scalable, allowing for faster time to market.
    • We provide continuous communication from cradle to grave, leading to better transparency and accurate real-time builds while reducing risk and eliminating waste.
    • Our flexible, agile approach allows us to rapidly adapt to meet evolving customer needs

     

    Why Centauri?

    Why Centauri?

    Failure can either be a minor setback or a large-scale disaster – depending on a developer’s ability to recognize warning signs and moving quickly and decisively to get the project back on course.   

    Team Beskar’s experienced software developers have learned to approach a problem from multiple different angles and can quickly adjust processes to meet user needs. We’ll never try to fit a square peg into a round hole. Our solutions are tailored to specific customer requirements, user needs and security classification.   

    Our team was built by former operators that keenly understand operator needs. We know their pain points because we have felt those same pain points. That's why our forward-thinking team can propose different solutions to problems that are customers don’t even know they have. It's not about the bottom line, it's about doing more for our customers.  

    Evolving to Face Threats

    Evolving to Face Threats

    As our adversaries develop software using DevSecOps methodologies, we run the risk of being outpaced and left behind. Agile DevSecOps brings the Department of Defense (DoD) faster, more efficient, and more secure development that gives products that our warfighters need to stay ahead of our adversaries. If they are able to more efficiently bring these products to bear on their side, that means we're losing the fight which is a dangerous place for us to be.

    Hardware can live for a long time, but the software needs a change.

    As threats evolve and conflicts move to cyberspace, secure application development becomes even more vital. DevSecOps integrates security from the start, making sure that DoD missions, from weapons systems to artificial intelligence, are secure.

    User Centered DesignAgile Lean Product DevelopmentExtreme Programming (XP)
    Our user-centered design approach ensures that we are always delivering real time value to our users needs. We are constantly validating and integrating assumptions from user research and user testing.Being lean allows us to validate our assumptions, mitigate risks and eliminating waste. We are constantly ensuring that we are building the next most valuable thing, the simplest way, and as fast as possible.Allows us to go fast, while being confident. Pair Programming and Test Driven Development are the core tenets ensuring we can pivot on a moment’s notice and our code is bug free and deployable.
