DevOps

At Universal Mind we believe DevOps is a set of best practices for collaboration and coordination between development and operations that enables continuous delivery.  To enable this, we have four core tenets on which our DevOps practice is based:

In successful practice, adopting and practicing successful DevOps will be a cultural change that we approach with a incremental methodology for success. This is accomplished by considering the software architecture, testing, infrastructure creation, and deployment all as first class citizens in the planning process and by providing a centralized DevOps team and governance at the program level within organizations.

We see DevOps as an essential element of properly introducing a holistic agile framework for an organization.  As we are proponents of the Scaled Agile Framework, we see synergy between these DevOps tenets with best practices of organizations that are implementing SAFe®. Because of our experience in development, architecture, agile process, user experience, and strategy we are uniquely positioned to help organizations implement a process and approach that is based on experience.

We offer multiple engagements including a DevOps Maturity Assessment as well as a DevOps Enablement Initiative to help organizations move forward with adopting a DevOps culture.

DevOps Maturity Assessment

DevOps is here to help you increase agility, improve the to market, and continuously deliver with speed, quality, reliability and repeatability. The first step on your journey to an effective DevOps implementation is to clearly identify your organizational, cultural, technology and process barriers. The most successful organizations ensure they have considered people, process, technology and culture when preparing for success. In order to align your organization around a common vision and create a realistic plan for success you must understand your current state.

When you are ready, Universal Mind is ready work with you in an agile workshop to assess, plan and define your DevOps enablement plan. We will work side-by-side with you in an empowerment model and walk the path to continuous integration and continuous delivery as true partners.
