And for good reason.
Compared to traditional development methods, which were relatively slow and often created conflict between developers and IT teams, DevOps is all about speed and collaboration.
The key features of DevOps are agility, continuous integration and delivery, and the use of automation.
Agility means your development and IT teams work in unison.
Continuous integration and delivery mean you can update, add new features, and fix issues in your products without needing for every piece of code to be ready for deployment.
And the use of automation allows you to save valuable IT times and resources while cutting down on human errors.
What does all this look like in action?
Let’s look at the case of a health and wellness company focused on connecting communities through shared experiences.
A company that Redapt helped not just adopt the cloud, but adopt DevOps as well.
This health and wellness company wanted to increase the pace of its innovation.
Unfortunately, the technical debt of a certain legacy development platform, along with the company’s inflexible on-premises hardware, was limiting progress.
The company’s technology team was so busy operating its datacenter infrastructure, maintaining development environments, and building new application features that it didn’t have time to actually innovate.
So they came to Redapt for a solution.
Our team of experts worked with the health and wellness company to adopt and build a modern, cloud-based DevOps environment.
We guided the company’s teams in making the transition to the DevOps tooling and culture.
Deployed cloud infrastructure following best practices to increase the company’s security posture and application performance.
And conducted a full knowledge transfer to the company’s technology team.
The result of all this work was the company being able to speed up its application deployment cycles and realize better application resilience.
It went from the resource-intensive, sporadic update and feature deployment to the ability to deploy several times a day as needed from a single application development platform.
This not only made the company more competitive in the crowded healthcare market, it put it on track to saving a substantial amount of time and money going forward.
If all this sounds like something that would benefit your company, we have a program to help you accelerate your adoption of DevOps.
We call this program the DevOps Quickstart, and here’s how it works.
First, Redapt experts review your current application portfolio and provide you with advice and strategies for migrating applications to the cloud.
We then develop CI/CD pipelines to speed up your development process and automate deployments to the cloud.
Once your automated CI/CD environment is established, monitoring tools are integrated so you always know what’s happening at any time during your development and deployment process.
Finally, once everything is up and running, we provide your developers and operations teams with all the training and support they need to learn the ins and outs of DevOps and your new cloud-native infrastructure.
Including how to get the most out of automation, containerization, and Kubernetes to accelerate your development, reduce costly errors, and increase your overall productivity.
As a result, your company can go from having little to no experience with DevOps to using it effectively in weeks instead of years.
You’ll have more time to innovate, hit the market faster, and provide your customers with a better overall experience.
