Build a plan for your DevOps journey in just one day
Frustrated at the lack of progress on your DevOps journey?
Know what good looks like but not how to get there?
Need a plan and business case to prioritise activity and investment?
Here are the four hurdles Automated Pipeline overcomes
1. No system view
✓ No shared understanding of how functions depend on one another.
✓ Software delivery teams are isolated groupings of subject matter experts.
✓ Each group has its own ways of working, values and tools.
✓ There is no sight of the end to end Software Development Lifecycle.
2. Pockets of goodness are not joined up
A start point for many IT delivery organisations is one function or unit building an automation or introducing a new way of working.
✓ Challenge yourself to harvest this goodness before it loses its influential value
✓Avoid conflicts over who owns “automation” or which is the best automation tool
3. No feedback loops
When an engineer writes a line of code that breaks the build an estimated 11% of productivity can be lost if he or she has to wait more than a week to implement a fix.
✓ All feedback from downstream functions such as test, release and deploy should be instant.
4. No concept of value
Many IT departments are driven by budget and cost rather than an understanding of the value each feature is adding to the customer
✓ Product managers must be able to prioritise by customer value, measure its realisation and demonstrate this to the business.
How we can help
You don’t need to re-invent the wheel. You need a validated DevOps plan.
+ The Automated Pipeline starts with a discovery workshop . This one day workshop requires a strong commitment from your team as it compares your current processes, ways of working and tools with best in class.
+ We will propose at the end of the day a set of high level solutions to identify and prioritise blockers for their reduction or removal.
Our team delivering the Automated Pipeline may include:
+ Agile Coach
+ Test and Release Automation engineer
+ Workflow and Pipeline tools specialist
+ Application Performance Monitoring skills
+ Agile Coach
+ Cloud Architect
Your team should include:
+ Relevant stakeholders from the Software Delivery Life Cycle
+ A sponsor
+ Understand your definition of DONE
+ Processes and their codification in tools
+ Extent and nature of manual test and release
+ Understand your Service Level Agreements and Service Level Objectives
+ Internal and external feedback loops
1 Start with a two-hour discovery workshop to capture who does what and how they do it
2 Then we remain on site with access to your team and systems to co-create solutions
3 Finally we present our initial recommendations
Decide if you would like detailed proposals to implement solutions for the identified blockers.
Our proposals can include training, process improvement and tooling as directed by your teams’ needs.
