Why invest in DevOps Consulting Services?

Organizations that haven’t adopted DevOps practices—or simply don’t know where to start—are feeling the pressure of falling behind. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, it might be time to kickstart your DevOps transformation:

  • Weeks of lead time
  • Frequent rollbacks
  • Relatively brittle applications
  • Less productivity/lots of waste
  • Low morale amongst teams
  • Unsatisfied customers or users

DevOps is the way to accelerate your evolution into a high-velocity, high-performing organization.
But don’t be fooled: DevOps isn’t just a role or a department, it’s a set of practices that spans your people, processes, and technology. By focusing on both optimizing your delivery pipelines and building a DevOps culture of collaboration, you’ll begin to see a valuable impact.

Business benefits of DevOps Implementation

According to Google’s State of DevOps Report, there’s a significant gap between elite-performing organizations and those that have yet to successfully employ a DevOps strategy. This affects everything from the amount of time it takes you to deploy to the rate of failure when making changes. See the data summarized for yourself:

Top-Performing Organizations

  • Several deploys per day
  • Less than 1 day of lead time for changes
  • Less than 1 hour to restore a service
  • 0-15% change failure rate

Low Performing Organizations

  • 1 to 6 deploys per month
  • 1 – 6 months of lead time for changes
  • 1 – 4 weeks to restore a service
  • 40-60% change failure rate
Things look good at the top! So how do you start making your way up the performance ladder? That’s where a strategic DevOps consulting partner is critical. We can help you assess where you’re at and map a path to becoming a higher-performing organization, based on your unique challenges and goals.

Through our engagement with Headspring, we gained critical knowledge of microservices, DevOps, and project delivery best practices. Their team was friendly and extremely knowledgeable, delivering a thorough assessment that will get us to both our short- and long-term modernization goals fast.

What do DevOps services include?

DevOps touches so many aspects of your business. That’s why we strive to get to know everything we can about your people, processes, and your business. That way we can apply a truly holistic approach to DevOps transformation. The five facets we focus on are Continuous Delivery, Measurement, Architecture, Processes, and DevOps culture. Each of these components is critical to the other, and to your long term success.

DevOps Pipeline Assessment

Our DevOps Pipeline Assessment measures your current software development and operations maturity and identifies any gaps in skills, knowledge, and team structures. We look at everything from your current development process and deployment methods to your use of Infrastructure as Code and observability tools, then perform a deep analysis of your current pipeline performance. Once we have this holistic view of where you’re at, we offer tailored recommendations for optimizing your development and operations, along with a robust roadmap to guide us forward.

DevOps Maturity Model

DevOps isn’t a product we deliver, it’s a process—or a journey, as we like to call it. We’ve guided many organizations through their DevOps transformation and have identified distinct benchmarks to measure progress. The DevOps Maturity model below helps us identify where you stand across five clearly-defined categories:

r

INITIAL

  • Ad-hoc communication
  • No automation
  • Uncontrolled governance
  • No quality standards

MANAGED

  • Controlled communication & collaboration
  • Ad-hoc automation
  • Unstandardized governance
  • Ad-hoc quality management
i

DEFINED

  • Standard communication process
  • Standardized automation
  • Standardized governance
  • Quality standards established
f

MEASURED

  • Communication metrics in place
  • Automation metrics measure progress
  • Governance metrics measure process
  • Quality metrics drive improvement
Z

OPTIMIZED

  • Communication, tools, and processes
  • Automation maximizes throughput
  • Optimized governance/adaptation
  • Continuous quality improvement

Our 5-step DevOps Implementation Process

As partners on your DevOps journey, our goal is to deliver value as quickly as we can. We’ve designed a five-step implementation process that starts with the most tangible component—your CI/CD pipelines—to get you on the ground running faster towards your optimization goals.

DevOps continuous delivery

Continuous Delivery

A key first set: Set up robust continuous integration and delivery pipelines, complete with version control, automated deployment and automated testing, and data management

DevOps measurement

Measurement

DevOps architecture

Architecture

Create a domain-driven, event-oriented design that uses vertical slice architecture and promotes loose coupling of features. Focus on balancing autonomy with performance and establishing a cloud infrastructure

DevOps process

Process

Break processes down into small slices of work to deliver value faster and enable steady iteration. Leverage infrastructure automation and create room for team experimentation

DevOps culture

DevOps Culture

Build a DevOps culture that drives success by fostering collaboration across teams, instilling a drive for growth, and promoting leaders committed to DevOps Transformation
