This new HR system, Defense Civilian Human Resources Management System (DCHRMS), is a cloud-based personnel system that integrates the current six different HR application databases (for each of the DoD agencies) into one and provides a core transactional system that makes it more flexible to share information between Component agencies while standardizing and streamlining personnel processes. Other HR supporting applications reside within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), some integrate with DCHRMS and others will transform into cloud solutions.
The Leidos DCPDS and DCHRMS programs have started incorporating continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) principles within our cloud transformation efforts; but now want focused attention to full integration to gain program efficiencies and deliver our code changes more frequently and reliably.
