DevOps & Agile
We provide the technical framework which enables organizations to leverage DevOps tools and practices using Agile Delivery methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban. We build automated tools which enable developers to leverage continuous integration and automated testing, providing efficiencies to developers through a common build environment where issues are detected early, and code coverage is maximized. Once CI and automated testing are in place, the customer can truly leverage the technical framework we build to support continuous delivery and continuous deployment, which ultimately improves the quality of software and shortens the delivery lifecycle. Security testing is embedded throughout our process, and we focus on maximizing opportunities to leverage automation to meet cybersecurity requirements and generate customer specific security artifacts.
To support the transition to Microservices based architecture, our team has also successfully deployed and managed container orchestration platforms such as locally managed Kubernetes clusters, Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform (OCP), and the AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS), in order to deliver highly-available, scalable, enterprise-applications. We leverage automation as much as possible and have experience implementing and maintaining highly available cloud infrastructure components, which utilize cloud provider capabilities to scale on demand. To support AWS Cloud infrastructure automation, we have hands on experience using tools such as Ansible, Cloud Formation, Gradle, Chef, Nexus, Knife, Docker, as well as monitoring tools such as Splunk, New Relic and Cloudwatch.
The common success factor we have seen in high performing Agile projects is the adoption of the Agile culture in which communication and collaboration are the most valued principles. Resources working on the Agile teams must be high performing, self-motivating individuals with complementary skillsets and a track record of working well in open, team-based environments. We provide support for organizations transitioning into Agile. This includes helping the organizations choose the right Agile framework based on their specific needs, tailoring that framework accordingly, and helping the development team (and broader organization) adapt to utilizing Agile. Our team includes Agile experts with certifications to back our experience, such as certified Scrum Masters and Program Management Institute Agile Certified Practitioners (PMI-ACP).
