DevOps

high speed time-to-market becomes reality

IT projects are mostly large and complex. To optimize speed and reduce risks it’s important that IT specialists work together efficiently. That way mistakes in releases will be prevented, budgets will stay within limits, and most important: the investment will be profitable. Our DevOps Delivery Centre is designed to shape this process, to coordinate and optimize, through bringing development (Dev) and operations (Ops) together.

what is devops?

DevOps is a method of thorough collaboration. This way, lines of communication are kept short and clear. It’s a change of culture: from divided silo’s, to breaking these walls. It re-emphasizes the teamwork and communication between software developers and other IT-specialists. Processes of software delivery and changes in infrastructure are automated in this way. DevOps is there to create such a culture, where building, testing, and releasing software happens in a fast and reliable way.

DevOps has many benefits for the IT-department, but also for business. It brings:

faster time-to-market
less helpdesk tickets
higher customer satisfaction

not my responsibility

Wants and needs are set by the business and developed by the development team. Development has an influence on the delivered functionality, but will always be in an operational role. With limited influence on prioritizing, performing, and the content of the wants. When a product is finished the responsibility will lie with operations. Divided silo’s, separate responsibility.

we build it, we run it

DevOps is a logical step when an organization craves even more flexibility. Operations is added to the Development team, which also involves release- and maintenance responsibilities of the team. The team is in total control of the DTAP line and determines how often a release takes place. Truly fast time-to-market becomes reality. DevOps introduces a new philosophy in this sense; we build it, we run it.
