Establishing a DevOps culture

We help you embed the tooling, processes and operational changes that will harmonise Development and Operations and establish your capability to move planned work into production with vastly greater speed, security and control.

CHALLENGES WE SOLVE

Rapid flow of planned work into production

As teams adopt Agile, existing processes for ensuring what is built is ready to go live are challenged. Operational teams face new pressure from the development teams to support faster, shorter release cycles. In effect, the twin drivers of speed and control come into conflict.

Organisations that enable short, regular release cycles through strong DevOps practices are succeeding where others are not. DevOps is driving speed, quality and flexibility and saving them time and money. It’s vital to keep up and get DevOps working for you.

We can help your organisation swiftly achieve engineering excellence and gain unparalleled speed and responsiveness too.

THE VALUE WE ADD

DevOps and Agile driving quality and speed

We accelerate and support your organisation’s transition to DevOps. When combined with Agile development, you will increase the frequency, stability and security of your deployments and realise the true benefits of Agile development.

With our help, you can achieve continuous delivery with near real-time responsiveness to user needs, drive growth in your revenues and increase your efficiency and productivity.

OUR APPROACH

Supporting your people in leading the change

Our industry-leading DevOps experts work hands-on with your IT Development and Operations teams, coaching them in the processes, skills and behaviours they will require to lead the transition and embed DevOps in your organisation.

We support the forging of a new relationship between the teams, enabling developers to have ‘self-service’ access to IT infrastructure, and facilitating closer collaboration between Development and Operations. In this way, we fine-tune the engine that will accelerate your delivery.

Each engagement differs but our capability to scale Agile and transform your organisation typically encompasses:

    We review your operations and DevOps capability in its wider organisational context, providing a change plan along with recommendations on the centralised governance of DevOps processes.

    As part of our diagnostic review, we assess your IT infrastructure and advise you on your options for technical services to support DevOps, including cloud technology.

    Our experts work hand-in-hand with your teams to apply a range of approaches and embed the right tooling, practices and advanced benefits of DevOps.

    We utilise Design Thinking, Solution Value Mapping, Story Mapping and Architectural Component design to define the context and accelerate effective Agile planning.

    We seek sustainable change for our clients, working closely with you to set a pace that is effective in delivering your objectives and ensuring new ways of working remain in place after we’ve gone.
