DevOps implementation 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 consulting

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 partnering with an experienced DevOps consulting firm will pay off. 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 solutions, 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 infrastructure modernization goals fast.

What do DevOps consulting services include?

DevOps consulting 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 business success.
