GMV Leads the Application of SAFe Agile in Aerospace Industry

The company applies the SAFe Agile framework, the most widely used globally according to the “16th Annual State of Agile Report” for 2022

Last June, the European Space Agency (ESA) awarded the development of the ground segment for control and in-orbit validation of the second generation of Galileo (G2G) to the multinational technology company GMV. This contract is an addition to those previously signed for the first generation of Galileo (G1G). The Galileo European Satellite Navigation System currently delivers positioning, navigation, and time synchronization services to over 4 billion users globally, with GMV playing an indisputably prominent role in its implementation.

To deliver these services efficiently, GMV is incorporating SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) into its project developments. This scaling methodology is recognized as the most widely used globally, as highlighted in the “16th Annual State of Agile Report” from 2022. Prominent companies, including Airbus, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Porsche, Deutsche Bank, Société Générale, Chevron, Petrobas, IBM, and Air France, exemplify its successful implementation.

As an integral part of the software system development lifecycle, GMV applies this innovative approach, customizing it to suit the requirements of the highly regulated aerospace industry. GMV’s goal in implementing the SAFe framework is to bring about substantial enhancements in business agility, including improvements in productivity, quality, and employee commitment. This facilitates greater predictability in workload balancing and prioritization, incremental value delivery, expedited time-to-market for solutions, and an elevation in product quality.
