DevOps

Release Reliable Software Faster

  • The US East DevOps practice helps large enterprise organizations reduce the time it takes to release reliable software after an idea is born, and to shorten the time between regular releases.
  • We named the practice DevOps after the growing movement in software development because ultimately the success of all the principles, processes and practices involved hinge upon the collaboration between your development and IT operations teams to help you achieve business agility.
  • DevOps follows the key tenets of the agile software development movement and represents a fundamental shift in how large, distributed enterprise organizations develop and release software. It affects the people, processes and technology of your organization and requires adopting and implementing leading-edge paradigms – such as continuous integration, continuous testing and continuous delivery – in addition to proven best practices in the areas of build automation, configuration management, release management and deployment.

US East DevOps Services

The expert consultants in our DevOps practice work hand-in-hand with your team to develop systems and manage change through a process that includes the steps below, all of which can be adapted to address your specific business circumstances.

  • Assess
  • Design
  • Implement
  • Manage

Assess

During the Assess stage, we hold workshops with your team to gain a good understanding of your business case for DevOps services, and to ensure that your organization’s key stakeholders understand the methodology, best practices and benefits.

We conduct interviews to understand your current business objectives and challenges; IT performance and processes; and document your current software development lifecycle to determine its impacts on time and resources of your organization. We also assess the capabilities and skills of your staff; and your organization’s capacity for change.

Together, we identify critical issues, then scope and prioritize the changes required.

Design

In the Design phase, we work in close collaboration with you to create the long-term vision for your transformed.

IT organization and its impact on the business.

We create a roadmap that addresses short, medium and long-term priorities for implementing the highest-value change opportunities that were identified during the Assess phase.

The customized roadmap is tailored to your unique business and technology needs, and addresses key challenges, opportunities, resources and dependencies.

Implement

Once your DevOps roadmap is in place, our experienced architects, designers and development consultants assist your team in rolling it out – from small pilot programs to broader organizational changes.

We focus on transferring best-practice knowledge rapidly and effectively to your team to help ensure quality and long-term success.

Manage

Our goals are to help make your team self-sufficient and to encourage culture change and adoption of DevOps agile principles.

Once you have begun implementing DevOps changes, we help you maintain momentum and manage the process however it is needed – project managers, mentors, training plans and resources centers are just a few of our capabilities.

We conduct post implementation reviews to gain insights, make adjustments to your roadmap, and plan for future iterations.
