In product-driven organizations, the emphasis is appropriately centered on maximizing value for customers. The fundamental belief behind this focus is that proper execution will facilitate organic growth by creating products that sell themselves. In a world of agile software development, however, the challenge is to determine which features to prioritize for release over a limited timeframe.
This is where DevOps comes into picture. The primary objective of a strong DevOps strategy is to create the organizational structure (processes, practices and systems) necessary to eliminate waste in the product development workflow. When implemented successfully, this will include, among other benefits:
- Fewer defects in committed releases
- Faster deployment of new features
- More frequent and consistent product deliveries
At Trianz, we have seen the power of effective DevOps strategies firsthand, having consulted Fortune 500 companies spanning multiple industries. We also know the pitfalls of steering change in large organizations. We can help you overcome them and achieve the advantages of DevOps within the scope of your unique goals and constraints.
Our approach to help you implement DevOps begins with learning about the desired outcomes and pain points of your current processes. Our expert consultants will listen closely to your software development teams. We will then offer insights into incremental improvements in your product creation, testing and deployment cycles.
While flourishing DevOps strategies can sometimes require a complete organizational overhaul, we understand the value in seeking smaller yet impactful changes to existing processes. And these small changes can lead to significant improvements in your business. For instance, you may simply need to eliminate cultural barriers to promote sharing of best practices among internal teams. Or maybe majority of your organization is willing to move in a new direction, but a few holdouts simply need to be persuaded to let go off a legacy system or process for the benefit of the larger development cycle. DevOps can be as much about the way team members interact as it is about the way systems do and we can help you effectively navigate situations like these.
Since DevOps is purposefully cross-functional, shifting your DevOps strategy with our help will give you significant insight into all aspects of your product development lifecycle: coding, testing, packaging and releasing to consumers. Our hope is to share your excitement of undertaking these broad-reaching improvements and your customer delight at the end of the process.
