DevOps is an overloaded term. At Keyva when we talk about DevOps, we're talking about organizational culture change inclusive of people, process, and technology. We speak to DevOps within the context of becoming Agile and the changes IT organizations need to make in order to achieve the promise of Agile. And what does Agile promise? It promises to knock down the walls in your IT department, it promises to unify your processes for planning, development, testing, deployment and operations underpinned with automation so that you can deliver your IT products and services to your customers faster than everyone else. It promises security, simplified tooling, infrastructure configurations as code, visibility across the entire application and operations lifecycle.
Agile and DevOps are acknowledgements that our IT projects are no longer a finite process with a clear start and end point: they are products. And your IT products have a lifecycle, they have customers, and they have competitors. The DevOps lifecycle is very familiar to Keyva as are its challenges. And we can help.
People are the greatest asset any organization has and getting alignment with your people can be one of the greatest challenges. Keyva can help you. We can look at your organization to figure out the best placement of personnel or to help create a cross-functional DevOps team. We can help you navigate tough questions such as, "How do I get my Infrastructure team to adopt Agile tooling and processes?"
Process changes are highly likely as your organization transitions to a DevOps culture. For many years infrastructure teams have developed ways of delivering high quality operations that can vary across domain: network does its job one way, storage teams another, server teams still yet another way. And those ways of operating differ from the processes adopted by application developers. It's common to see processes differ between application teams. And still yet to see process vary by environment, whether that's Dev, Test, QA, Staging, or Production. As the culture changes and as technology emerges there are new and better ways of doing things. Keyva can help you rationalize and standardize your processes in accordance with the unique culture that makes your organization who it is. We can help you leverage the most powerful capabilities of the tooling and solutions that are emerging into the enterprise space from the open source community. We can help you streamline what you do.
It also important to understand the tools you choose to leverage. Keyva consultants aren't in the business of picking technology winners and losers, rather we seek to understand your team, its skills, and the strategic vendor relationships you have and help you on the path of automating and integrating those solutions in a way that delivers you agile technical capabilities that will scale along a known technical and financial trajectory.
