EverythingD’s DevOps services are designed to guide organisations to a model of continuous delivery. This approach allows our customers to get software into their users’ hands more frequently and reliably by fully automating their applications’ deployment pipelines. While continuous delivery is the organising concept around our DevOps services, it is not an end state.

Our goal is to equip our customers with the technical skills, battle-tested processes, and tools needed to embrace nonstop delivery improvement. In the end, our customers are able to measure this improvement in two specific ways: reduced cycle time (time to reach the customer) and improved product quality. And our implementation expertise in DevOps has enabled us to develop point solutions to address issues specific to your scenario.

It may be assumed that “DevOps” combines development and operational responsibilities.  However, DevOps is not about combining traditional responsibilities into a single team. Rather, DevOps is a set of guiding principles and methodology which promotes software excellence throughout its SDLC lifecycle. Barriers between software delivery disciplines are broken down to provide seamless transitions accelerating time to market while improving quality. DevOps is focused on the following goals:

  • Establish a culture of collaboration, breaking down traditional silos and common measures of success
  • Accelerate time to market with customer feedback
  • Maintain current quality while driving improvements for the life of the software through the implementation of DevOps
  • Allow for experimentation – institutionalize the idea of fail fast
  • Automate traditional operational and development responsibilities
  • Leverage platforms to provide turnkey environments

nabling agile development teams to focus on their core strengths by delivering ‘as a service’ environments, tailored for your organisation’s needs.
