DevOps has matured over the last five years and the Cloud has helped organisations remove the traditional infrastructure constraints associated with development projects. While Platform Automation, Platform as a Service offerings and Supplier Quick-Starts have all contributed to major time and cost, DevOps and the Cloud can offer so much more.
By combining Cloud and DevOps, throughput is improved. This builds an environment that encourages innovation while increasing product quality through faster feedback.
USING THE CLOUD TO MAXIMISE THROUGHPUT
In the DevOps Delivery Pipeline an ‘idea’ passes through three phases: Idea to Backlog, Backlog to Binary and finally, Binary to User.
Idea to Backlog
Ideas are captured and an architecture that facilitates smaller and more regular deployments designed. Not only does the Cloud provide the Solution Architect with a perfect platform for Microservices architectures, but also it is possible to re-host or re-platform legacy systems and take advantage of services to improve throughput through testing and deployment.
Backlog to Binary
Pipelines as a Service, enabled by Cloud, enable teams to work collaboratively from the outset. Ephemeral environments can be spun up instantly for testing, technical spikes and trying out new ideas. By building a pipeline in the Cloud, the rapid feedback that is so important in this phase is easy to achieve.
Binary to User
Production-grade Containers and Serverless Computing in the Public Cloud have moved Platform Automation to the next level. The CMDB is the Cloud and it is updated instantly. The run-book can be fully automated and become part of the Delivery Pipeline, and Product Owners can obtain detailed information about who is using the application, where they are and how they are using it.
The Cloud adds to this with a richer, scalable and cost-effective environment to support these phases.
BJSS USES THESE PRINCIPLES IN ITS OWN DELIVERIES
BJSS has always been at the forefront of the DevOps movement. Our DevOps approach is proven and has been applied to many large-scale software deliveries, including some of the largest public sector and enterprise deployments in the UK and USA.
