Bridging the Divide With DevOps

DevOpsDevOps is the latest catchphrase that everyone claims to be doing.

Gartner recommends that “leaders wishing to create a significant, lasting impact on IT performance should look to move beyond the Bimodal paradigm in the space of months rather than years.” Leading and executing on this cultural change is very challenging in enterprise IT. The urgency is to ensure your line-of-business teams remain engaged with enterprise IT, rather than deepening the divide between infrastructure operations and application development teams. In today’s rich marketplace for cloud-based solutions including infrastructure, platform, and software as services, application teams and line-of-business customers have options beyond traditional enterprise IT operations for hosting their solutions.

How AIS Helps Our Clients Bridge the Divide and Increase Productivity

As an application development firm, we put the “Dev” in “DevOps” and can uniquely implement automated and continuous provisioning that readily enables Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD). Our differentiator is that we also run large enterprise IT operations for our clients.

Our proven ability to create customized solutions for a client’s governance platform for automated provisioning and self-service to support CI and CD processes is based on decades of experience working with application owners, developers, and IT operations. Allow us to fast-track your application delivery lifecycle with our automated provisioning expertise and self-service tooling to bring DevOps to your organization.

The AIS Solution: Provision Environments in Hours, Not Months

The urgency is to ensure your line-of-business teams remain engaged with enterprise IT, rather than deepening the divide between infrastructure operations and application development teams.

With a Bimodal IT approach, AIS can optimize automated provisioning and self-service to benefit application development teams. This allows application teams to quickly provision “sandbox environments” that can be converted into production environments along with “IT environments” that resemble the application environments due to the way they are managed. We are experienced in providing architectural guidance to move applications from an on-premises environment to a cloud environment, all while enhancing performance and testing. We can help you envision and establish a base infrastructure integrating cloud and on-premises environments.

AIS has extensive expertise with Application Lifecycle Management, a deep understanding of overarching methodologies supporting Agile development processes, and an understanding of best practices associated with Continuous Integration and Build Management. These experiences, coupled with our deep knowledge of cloud platforms, make AIS an ideal partner to automate the provisioning and deployment processes for your organization. AIS uses tools available in the market, our own software, and our enterprise experience to create self-service portals that teams can use and IT can control.
