DevOps and CloudOps Automation

Streamlined and continuous development operations on-premise or in the cloud.

Organizations around the world are increasingly adopting a DevOps culture as a mainstream software development and delivery strategy. Have you embraced DevOps or CloudOps already?

Why DevOps or CloudOps are important for your organization?

DevOps and CloudOps help you leverage agility in operations, get quicker deployment of production features to meet business needs and achieve a flexible customer-focused approach.

Some key benefits from DevOps and CloudOps are:

Optimize IT operations cost

Boost quality code delivery

When do you need to consider DevOps and CloudOps automation?

DevOps or CloudOps are essential foundations of software delivery in order to accelerate innovation, improve collaboration, increase efficiency, reduce failures and accelerate recovery time. Here is a list of common technology evolution opportunities when to consider adopting DevOps or CloudOps:

  • When you are switching operations from on-premise to cloud infrastructure regardless of whether the system targeted for migration is customer facing or an internal one.
  • When you need to boost your capabilities to deliver new features and add value to your customers faster. Consider DevOps or CloudOps when you need to turn an idea into a working feature in a matter of days, not months.
  • When your current software delivery approach is not flexible enough to meet the changes demanded by the market. Consider DevOps or CloudOps when regulatory changes always get you by surprise or competitors are months ahead with releasing new products in your business domain.
  • When the first thought in your mind is inefficiency in regards to your software delivery process when it comes to: continuous builds, continuous integration, continuous delivery, automated release management, incremental testing.
