Embrace the next phase of digital transformation

Organizations can greatly enhance application development cycles and time to market, and minimize downtime by leveraging containerization, orchestration, and DevOps automation. These advancements enable streamlined processes, updated capabilities, and efficient resource allocation through scripting and the use of microservices and platform engineering.

Achieving an advanced, cloud-native state requires application-level work, including refactoring and modernization. Successful companies invest time and resources in reaching the next level of application, infrastructure, and a DevOps-oriented environment. But accessing those skills and resources can be a challenge, which is how CBTS can help.

Release faster, work smarter, improve feedback

For the enterprise, digital transformation is about changing your culture, including entrenched habits and legacy procedures as much as changing systems and technology. Empowering software developers to work seamlessly with operations to streamline and modernize development methodologies will accelerate driving new functionality to market faster. 

Once you start to see your competition growing at a faster pace than you, it becomes clear that doing business as usual just won’t suffice. You need a partner with the experience and access to global resources to help you become the disruptor.

DEVOPS AUTOMATION

What is DevOps automation?

In a nutshell, DevOps automation is a set of practices that merges software development and IT operations. DevOps is an organizational transformation practice that involves closely coordinating teams and adopting infrastructure and application automation wherever possible.

Today’s tech culture expects high-performing organizations to deliver software faster, consistently, and reliably on a large scale. Continuous delivery, DevOps, and microservices label the why, how, and what of the Cloud. These concepts, in their most advanced state, become so interwoven as to become one, and essentially inseparable.

OUR APPROACH

Why CBTS?

The DevOps implementation process encompasses assessment, planning, implementation, and ongoing support. CBTS DevOps services offer specialized knowledge in areas like automation, infrastructure as code, continuous integration and delivery, and cloud computing. 

Engaging certified cloud-native application experts like CBTS is essential to properly evaluate your company’s current state, and then determining the optimal approach for application development and cloud migration. We can help you lift-and-shift or refactor existing applications or we can help design and build cloud-native applications from the ground up. 

Automation maturity assessment

  • Develop a roadmap for a DevOps transformation journey.
  • Define DevOps operating model for fast flow of software delivery to avoid critical problems that impede business value.

Build, test, and deliver

  •  Build, test, and deliver in an automated, repeatable way.
  • Provision and manage cloud resources.
  • Assess and manage security and legal risks.

Deploy efficiently and reliably

  • Deploy as efficiently, reliably, and quickly as possible, making changes available to end users quickly and reliably while minimizing downtime and disruption.

Drive high velocity results

  • Leverage cloud monitoring and troubleshooting for infrastructure, cloud services, and applications.
  • Govern cloud resource configurations and centrally manage your compliance to organization and regulatory guidelines.

DevOps has revolutionized the approach to IT security. The transition from traditional, pre-planned deployments to agile development environments necessitates tightly integrating security into both development and operational procedures.

“DevOps represents the next phase of digital transformation. It empowers organizations to dramatically cut their development cycles, speed time to market, and redirect focus on mission-critical endeavors.” – Al Early, Senior Vice President of Consulting Services

Case studies

The client is an industry-leading manufacturer and global service provider of jet engines. From the turbo-supercharger to the world’s most powerful commercial jet engine, our client has a long history of powering the world’s most robust and innovative aircraft.

Problem
The client sought to reduce the time required for their team to analyze the data analytics of aircraft engine health checks. Legacy applications slowed the entire process down. 

CBTS solution
CBTS implemented a DevOps infrastructure that significantly reduced the time required for data analysis and enabled the client to be more agile in continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) practices. By modernizing the mission-critical applications that impact their profits, CBTS enabled the client to leverage advanced technologies such as containers and microservices and adopt revolutionary cloud-first, methodologies like agile, DevOps, and CI/CD.

Outcome
CBTS significantly reduced the time required for data analysis from 24 hours to just 12 hours. CBTS provides round-the-clock monitoring and management of the entire infrastructure. The private cloud supplied by CBTS is highly available, employing automation and a redundant network and computing infrastructure to eliminate the risk of data loss. The solution also uses AI and predictive analytics to anticipate maintenance schedules and continually improve operations, thus reducing costs and increasing profits.

Aligning DevOps with business objectives

Digital transformation is about changing entrenched habits and attitudes as much as changing systems and technology. A top goal should be to trim the development lifecycle, which in many cases can drop from six months (or longer) to as little as one week. Once developers see the advantages of owning their own environments and running their own apps, the transition can extend to platform and process workflows, preferably those that can deliver the greatest competitive advantage through increased speed, availability, and flexibility.

DevOps aims to create scalable and reliable applications through sustainable infrastructure, playing a crucial role in modern software development.

FAQs

Top 5 questions

What is DevOps automation?

DevOps combines code with sysadmin protocols and utilizes automation to speed up everything from app development cycles to security.

Why should I adopt a DevOps-forward mentality?

Those ignoring DevOps will eventually get left behind. A DevOps-forward organization can enjoy greater speed to market and operational efficiency, and boost developer experience, which is linked to increased revenue.

What tools do I need to invest in for DevOps?

Many tech platforms are involved in DevOps. CBTS can assess your current environment and advise you on the next steps.

What is the first step to take when improving DevOps automation?

Agility is the initial step towards DevOps automation. Once achieved, a gradual journey towards comprehensive DevOps implementation can begin.

Is it expensive to implement?

Automation can require a significant amount of time in planning and investing in hardware, software, and personnel. Leveraging a DevOps model should be based on measurable goals and expected financial results.
