CI(I) / CD ?
The best way to handle technical debt is to prevent it from accumulating in the first place. It is observed a lot: much-needed development platforms become available, use-cases start popping up in short order, overwhelming the dev teams responsible for meeting the demands. Under pressure, this leads to shortcuts, neglect of best-practices and lack of tests or documentation. As a result, code-smells start appearing, inevitably leading to a buildup of issues down the line. The platform falling victim to its own success.
Prevent this by adding the “I” of Improvement to the CI/CD paradigm: let 'continuous improvement' be integral part of your DevOps process. We offer tailored continuous improvement support, like code-reviews, design and implementation optimization and automated code-checking. Stop technical debt in its tracks and adopt your tech-stack with confidence.
Value stream management.
Value stream management is a set of practices that improve the way DevOps teams deliver experiences. VSM focuses on two things: how quickly requested features or updates are delivered and whether the value is realized from those changes. Gartner defines a value stream as “the sequence of activities necessary to deliver a product, service or experience to a customer, internal or external.” Value streams include every touchpoint on the journey from idea generation to delivery of value to customers.
Many companies suffer from lack of visibility and comprehensive reporting, especially those that are highly matrixed. Value stream management solutions cut through silos, pulling together disparate data to provide you with the metrics you need and actionable insights. Common problems addressed by VSM include:
- Slow delivery of bug fixes and new features or products
- DevOps teams are not delivering as effectively as desired
- Lack of visibility throughout the organization due to silos and disparate data
We use VSM to improve and optimize your DevOps delivery experience, mitigating the operational collaboration challenges we encounter often. This starts with value stream mapping, a visual collaboration technique used to describe value streams by identifying and analyzing the flow of activities required to deliver a product or service to a customer. These analyses reveal dependencies, inefficiencies, and waste. From there, we help you addressing the challenges, moving from your process current-state to the desired-state, step by step.
