DevOps Consulting

DevOps Consulting Services

Looking to transform your business processes to compete effectively in today's fast-paced, ever-changing, environment? DevOps is the approach to modernise your organisation to meet the new challenges; but due to its wide-ranging disruption to people, processes, and technology, its implementation can be challenging.

We are here to assist with these challenges by adopting a strategic approach to the implementation and roll-out of the DevOps approach and principles in your organisations. It's not just about technology and processes, it's about people too.

DevOps  - A Strategic Approach to implementation

Cloud computing, agile management, and process automation are the three mega-trends transforming businesses. Although there is no overarching term that combines the impact of these 3, mutually reinforcing trends, DevOps is perhaps the best methodology to harness their power.

DevOps can be implemented haphazardly across an organisation in an uncoordinated approach which may or may not have the desired result but it is far more effective to adopt a strategic planned approach to its adoption. What processes should be automated first for the biggest business impact? What is the impact on people and what is your skills gap? What tools and service providers should be selected that best suit your current work-force and infrastructure?

A strategic, planned approach will allow your organisation to reap the benefits of such changes most effectively. We are here to assist with the process. We can help you develop a co-ordinated approach, identify skills gaps and retooling and retraining needs.

Infrastructure Re-engineering, tools & service providers

DevOps is not just about merging the development and operations functions with automation to achieve faster time to market and quicker product and feature rollouts. It also requires the careful selection of tools and providers to re-engineer your processes.

We provide advisory consulting and evaluation of the range of options available to an organisation based on its as-is position and help define its move-to position from a tools, technology, and service provider perspective.

Our team of technical experts can assist your team to map business, technical and functional requirements to tools and service providers and implement Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery processes.

Our cloud services consulting division can assist with the migration of processes to the cloud and our strategic advisory team is ready to help develop and implement a change process plan for your organisation

Agile Consulting & Management Reengineering

DevOps is most effective when combined with the adoption of an agile management approach.  An integrated plan will combine the re-engineering of technical processes and management processes to enable your organisation to leverage the mutually reinforcing benefits of process automation and agile management.

Our team of agile practitioners can assist with reskilling business and technical teams to effectively implement agile processes whilst developing an approach to roll out the changes across your organisation and address organisational cultural and deal with challenges to Agile adoption.

Agile project management is no longer just an approach to delivering better, more reliable, and robust software on-time and in-budget but is an effective way to organise collaborative teams that can respond dynamically to changes. Get your teams agile and flexible to deal with today's challenges.
