DevOps Practices: Fostering a More Collaborative Development Culture by Breaking the Barrier between Developers and Operations

DevOps is a set of practices, aimed at automating tasks which were previously done manually, minimizing the participation of both development (dev) and operations (ops) teams and making their collaboration more transparent and effective.

Continuous Integration
  • Once developers introduce changes to the code, the system integrates these changes in the source code repository and gets updated automatically.
Automated Testing
  • Each newly written piece of code is run through testing tools against functional and non-functional requirements.
Continuous Deployment
  • When a new build is created, it is sent to production immediately after running the tests, and the system is updated quickly and in a sustainable way.

Advantages & Economic Value of Implementing DevOps Practices

SPEEDING UP TIME TO MARKET
  • This is how our team uses DevOps practices to leverage automated processes and infrastructure update: tasks that were previously manual, error-prone and time-consuming, can now be accomplished automatically, and the product will meet their users in next to no time.
REDUCING OVERALL PROJECT COSTS
  • Automated processes enable more frequent deployments and shorter lead times, while automated testing ensures a decreased number of bug fixing cases. As a consequence, you reduce both your time and human resources per each release.
MINIMIZING HUMAN FACTOR
  • DevOps is about people! The automation of multiple processes allows them to spend time on innovation and higher-value activities rather than on accomplishing routine daily tasks.
QUICK PROBLEM SOLUTION
  • The integrated continuous monitoring help implement a proactive approach in support management and stay updated on the state of the system performance, improving mean time to recovery. Moreover, with 24/7 tracking you can introduce data-driven adjustments in accordance with the system's needs.
IMPLEMENTING ENHANCED SECURITY STANDARDS
  • Our security-first approach guarantees faster development and more frequent releases, without leaving the system in a vulnerable state. End-to-end automated testing, storage encryption and improved visibility are just some of the tools that mitigate security risks.
FOSTERING CROSS-FUNCTIONAL TEAM COMMUNICATION
  • With DevOps in place, both in-house developers and operations stay focused on new feature release, with an easy access to the latest version of the system. This way we make sure that no issues are ‘‘thrown over the wall’’.

Leveraging a Holistic DevOps Approach to Software Development

Our DevOps experts build and support your infrastructure and deployment pipelines through its seamless, time-
tested approach.

Transition
Infrastructure as Code
1
Integrating Code Repository with Version Control
  • We start with verifying if there is a source control management (SCM) tool in place - and, if not, implement it for storing the code in the same repository, maintaining different versions of the code and improving coordination among project members.
2
Providing Code
Inspection
  • After DevOps consulting services, R-Style Lab team tests the code, verifies artefacts and ensures quality of a build to make sure that the system works with the clean code.
3
Setting Up a Continuous Delivery Pipeline
  • Establishing a CI/CD pipeline, we make sure that any change to the code will be tested, function as designed and seamlessly integrate with other components of a system.
4
Empowering the existing infrastructure with automation tools
  • Once the pipeline is created, its elements empower the underlying code with the main DevOps features: automated testing, fast software delivery, 24/7 tracking and monitoring. Time to get use of them!
5
Application Refactoring
  • With DevOps tools in place, it gets easy to restructure the existing application code without changing its external behavior, but ensuring its faster and more stable performance.
6
Setting up Continuous Automated Deploy & Delivery Tools
  • At this step, we make the code deployable at any moment and enable its pushing to production stage with the implemented delivery and release orchestration tools. Now new features can be released an unlimited number of times per day, and the system gets updated as frequently as needed.
7
Automation of the Underlying Infrastructure (Infrastructure as Code)
  • Treating the underlying infrastructure code in the same way as any other code provides for introducing infrastructure adjustments instantly with one push of a button. Now it gets scaled up / down automatically in accordance with the system’s demands, adjusting itself to the constantly changing environment.
