The biggest challenges organizations face are to do with adapting to the pace of change. Telephones took 75 years to reach 50 million homes. Mobile phones took just 12 years to reach the same number of users. Now because of DevOps and delivery automation, it only takes days for more complex applications to reach your customers. Developing an efficient DevOps practice is key to staying relevant today. Let’s look at some DevOps transformation and delivery automation options to help you keep up and even set the pace of change.

DevOps solutions that address
tangible business needs

DevOps solutions are at the heart of what we offer at THIS. An adaptive DevOps transformation strategy offers resilience and agility in your implementations. Here’s how you can leverage our DevOps solutions for your core business functionality.

DevOps pipeline

A solution to keep delivering continuous benefits to your customers.

  • Continuous integration and testing: These are integral for delivery automation.
  • Continuous release and deployment using Docker and Kubernetes: Containerized workload and service management platforms are a staple of DevOps.
  • Continuous infrastructure monitoring and optimization: Rapid detection of risks and issues, as well as maximum test improvement.
  • Continuous Security monitoring to detect suspicious and anomalous traffic.
  • Service failure recovery without delay: Minimize and eliminate system downtimes and outages even with critical failures.
  • Continuous measurement: Constantly measure system vitals in relation to production environments, e.g. lead time, deployment frequency, mean-time-to-recover & change fail rates.

Technologies

The right choice of technologies can minimize your DevOps response times.

  • Configuration management for code and infrastructure using Ansible, Chef, and Puppet: Top tier configuration management tools to enable faster, repeatable, and scalable deployments.
  • Metrics reporting using Prometheus and Zabbix systems: Learn how much disk space, network utilization, and CPU load your systems consume.
  • Dashboards development using Grafana: Visual support for monitoring tools like Prometheus.
Automation

Automation makes your service delivery effective. As a result, your business becomes nimble and more competitive.

  • Build automation using Jenkins and AWS CodePipeline: The pipeline creates a build-service that encapsulates compiling source code, producing code artefacts, and deploying to production automatically.
  • Test automation: The whole CI/CD pipeline relies heavily on test automation to validate the integrity of the builds and the pipeline itself.
  • Deployment automation: Deploy your builds and upgrades to testing and production environments at the push of a button.
  • Monitoring automation: Use tools which allow the monitoring system to react proactively by triggering the process to fix an issue when certain criteria have been met, or to automatically alert someone or auto-create a service desk ticket.
  • Recovery automation: There is no need for employees to remember lengthy recovery steps. Just roll back the system to the last scheduled or successful configuration backup.
  • Infrastructure automation on AWS using infrastructure as code: Define the terms for the resources you want on your account in a template file and AWS makes this a reality automatically.

While chaos engineering may not sound appealing, the benefits are undeniable. The results allow you to optimize your system strengths and decrease downtime costs.

  • Employ Chaos engineering and discover failure points: Chaos engineering allows you to find and devote resources to combat system vulnerabilities
  • Identify what happens in case of resource unavailability: This helps to ascertain and plan to counteract unwanted system behaviour during disruptions.

THIS platforms, tools & frameworks

Build confidently with tools that enable continuous test automation for all components of your application in a DevOps process.

  • An integrated platform for continuous automated testing of all components in application development, web, APIs, logs and database process operations.
  • Automaton employs reusable visual workflows for zero code test automation with optional support for conventional command line interface (CLI) test execution.
  • Automaton is an agile test automation tool for end-to-end application testing, covering all aspects, browser view, API (SOAP and REST) & database.
  • Automaton’s rich set of APIs enable integration with popular CI tools and makes it a perfect fit for the DevOps process.

Significantly reduce your build time by quickly designing, prototyping, documenting and testing your front-ends and APIs.

  • This tool allows projects to speed up and secure front-end and service development & delivery without any dependencies on backend services.
  • AutoStub® generates mock data and facilitates API testing to help the frontend team develop and test their product before the backend is ready. This saves time and boosts delivery.
  • Mock services are generated from WSDL/Swagger templates.
  • The same mock services can be used for testing to help identify issues in advance.
  • AutoStub® accepts Swagger 2.0 and WSDL documents. These are industry accepted standards for service formats.
