Initial organizational and technical help with DevOps implementation

To give your DevOps implementation initiative the right start.

ScienceSoft’s DevOps team carries out strategic planning, develops a detailed DevOps implementation roadmap, assists in the DevOps solution setting up. Once these steps are completed, ScienceSoft’s consultants are ready to provide on-premises training for your employees involved in the DevOps approach implementation to ensure their readiness to maintain the DevOps approach on their own and, if needed, cope with organizational (e.g., teams’ collaboration issues) or technical (e.g., CI/CD configuration errors) problems that may occur in the future.

Help with DevOps implementation problems

To cope with any difficulty on the way to a successful DevOps practice.

In the course of implementing DevOps, you may find out that the collaboration between the development, testing and operations teams is insufficient, the employees have knowledge gaps on applying DevOps methodologies and using appropriate tools, the automated testing coverage is not enough to ensure faster and efficient testing. Once the DevOps approach implementation encounters difficulties, ScienceSoft’s DevOps consultants are ready to:

  • Analyze the problem you’ve encountered.
  • Adjust or modify the developed DevOps strategy in collaboration with your IT department.
  • Tune CI/CD tools, as well as infrastructure management, test automation, and application monitoring processes.
  • Offer additional training for your DevOps practitioners.
  • Provide software consulting or modernization if needed to adapt your existing development practices to a new DevOps approach faster.

Consulting on DevOps technical aspects

To make technologies fully support your DevOps initiative.

ScienceSoft’s DevOps experts can design and help to properly set up a CI/CD pipeline. For its successful launch, we install and configure the appropriate set of DevOps specific tools:

  • Containerization tools (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes).
  • IT infrastructure automation tools (e.g., Ansible, Chef).
  • CI/CD tools (e.g., Jenkins, GoCD).
  • Test automation tools (e.g., Selenium, Zephyr).
  • Monitoring tools (e.g., Nagios, Zabbix).

Once your DevOps toolset is properly configured, ScienceSoft’s DevOps consultants can train your in-house teams and transfer the knowledge they need to further maintain your agile IT infrastructure.

Additional Services to Enhance DevOps Implementation

QA consulting

To improve the overall software quality and introduce test automation on a high scale.

Software consulting

To adapt existing development practices to the new DevOps approach.

Application modernization

To adapt your legacy applications to DevOps.

When It’s Time to Turn to DevOps Consulting

DevOps consulting may be the answer if you feel concerned about:

  • The lack of collaboration between the teams (development, testing, system administration, and security) resulting in a slow software delivery and low software quality.
  • The slow manual process of providing new IT infrastructure.
  • Differences in the configurations of development, testing and production environments.
  • Time-consuming infrastructure modifications, software updates and bug fixing.
  • Post-release errors affecting user or customer experience or business operations.
  • A slow and inefficient testing process due to insufficient test automation.
