New technologies, such as cloud computing and automated testing, are heralded as the way to release new products and features much more quickly.
However, they are not a silver bullet. Releasing features quickly but reliably, without causing interruptions to service, risking security breaches or destabilising your platform requires a more comprehensive change to the way you work.
DevOps is not a single team. It is also important to understand that DevOps is not a tool you can buy, or a team you can hire or create, that stands alone and makes magic happen. DevOps is a combination of cultural change, collaborative processes and modern tooling that together bridge the gaps that exist within your organisation which have traditionally stifled collaboration and slowed down delivery.
Our DevOps Strategy and Transformation service is designed to guide you through this transition, while keeping your delivery goals in full focus.
The result is:
We use our significant experience of performing DevOps transformations in highly regulated environments to ensure that all security, compliance and regulatory commitments are enshrined in the new culture, processes and tooling.
Comprehensive assessment of your current software development lifecycle and any existing DevOps practices.
Definition and implementation of modern, collaborative working practices.
Analysis and selection of appropriate services and tooling for your organisation, with implementation for maximum benefit.
Introduction of automated infrastructure and environment provisioning within cloud platforms.
Definition of strategy for each of your products, creating pipelines and automation to build and deploy seamlessly, repeatably and securely to all of your environments.
Integration with existing regulatory or compliance requirements to create continuous delivery processes that work for your organisation.
Working with your development and testing teams to automate as much of your testing as possible.
Implementation of automated, continuous observability for monitoring, logging, alerting and tracing.
Implementation of cost management tools and processes to minimise operating costs.
Creation of high-availability services with automated failover between geographically isolated locations.
