What is DevOps?!
DevOps is a practice, a methodology, and a culture centered on empowering IT teams to deliver and support software services that are more robust, more quickly. Through new DevOps tools and the heavy use of automation, a DevOps organization operates just like an Agile one by bringing cross-functional teams together to provide value faster than before.
Cprime’s DevOps training begins by bringing together our experience with fusing teams, tools, and process to help DevOps teams utilize a tightly integrated combination of the following areas to ultimately provide solutions that just work:
Continuous Integration (CI)
Cprime’s Continuous Integration (CI) DevOps training focuses on getting companies in the habit of regularly merging your code and validating the results through unit tests. Code merges can be done very quickly and the frequency depends on your particular process and needs. The important piece is that you integrate your code often so that you can minimize complicated merges.
Continuous Delivery (CD)
Continuous Delivery (CD) is a methodology where teams work to automate the building and testing of their code so that they can deliver functioning software to needed environments at any time. Cprime’s buildout and implementation of this DevOps automation tool speeds up development and gives your teams the feedback loop they need to improve.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Cprime’s approach to building a dynamic, software-defined Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) allows your team to create precisely configured environments on demand. Using code to version control the environment creation process, the servers and infrastructure behind your software can keep pace with accelerating software development practices. When version controlled code can create, and destroy, environments on the fly, teams will shed the most traditional bottleneck of software development while saving money in process.
Test Automation is the process of automating the formalized manual testing efforts that are repetitive and time consuming, allowing your team to discover issues right when code is initially being built. Cprime’s Agile and DevOps testing automation focuses on the proper crafting of an automated test plan so that companies run the right regression suite at the correct time and and actually perform more testing in less time.
Development Security Operations (DevSecOps) is the infusion of a security mindset into the execution of a nimble and automated DevOps practice. Cprime helps companies simplify security audits and gain peace of mind by applying security-focused testing to the functional testing you already have baked in to your automated build and deploy process.
Monitoring a DevOps environment involves the automation of the deployment and configuration of your monitoring tools as well as the development practices that ensure your software is relaying the most critical information to validating proper operations. Cprime’s automated DevOps tools for testing and monitoring ensure everything is operating as expected and is where Development and Operations (DevOps) truly meet.
