DevOps Consulting

DevOps is a philosophy, a cultural shift that merges operations with development and demands a linked toolchain of technologies to facilitate collaborative change. The DevOps trend goes way beyond implementation and technology management and instead necessitates a deeper focus on how to effect positive organizational change. The DevOps philosophy, therefore, centers on people, process, technology, and information.

re:code approach to DevOps consulting is to help customers build their own capability. None of the vendor partners should create a lock independency. Keeping that in mind we would come in and lead from the front in the early days, but would like to transition leading from the back, so our customers own people and processes are transformed in a way that they can lead the charge themselves going forward.

We have developed a DevOps Assessment Toolkit with predefined templates and scorecard models that help customers with a holistic and objective maturity assessment report. This addresses the areas of people, skills, tool, practices and current capabilities.

re: code DevOps coaches partners with customer teams to implement the foundational capabilities for adopting DevOps and to guide them through the change management journey thereby enabling them to be in the driver’s seat.

Assessment reports also have recommendations on roadmap definition, technology toolsets, governance, org change management and continuous delivery setup. Typical timelines for this between 5 to 8 weeks.

Overcoming the Dev Vs period Ops mindset and team’s coming together to work. The DevOps practice is all about integrating teams together and breaking down silos within IT organizations. Devs trying to innovate and make changes as quickly as possible and operations trying to maintain 100% service levels.

The truth is the goals of both teams seem too often counter each other. They need to align the goals and priorities of the teams. Hence re:code approach to DevOps has a major emphasis on people and org change management.

Older infrastructure and applications can be problematic. Remaining on legacy infrastructure can spell stability problems, lack of support and the fact that you will be left behind the swiftly advancing competition. Using Infrastructure-as-code together with microservices is a step towards a future of continuous innovation. Replacing or modifying older, monolithic apps with newer microservices architecture can open up the floodgates to faster development and quicker innovation.

By moving to microservices architecture from a monolith and legacy infrastructure, you need to have the foundations of automation, configuration management and continuous delivery in place to effectively implement DevOps. re:code process consulting and tool set selection are aimed to building these foundational capabilities.
