CI/CD Readiness Assessment

Our team can help review your existing methods, processes, and technology to determine the gaps between siloed development and operations teams, missing tools, and changes to processes that need to occur to make your business CI/CD ready. SPK and Associates have varied assessment packages that ultimately help determine the right tools and implementation plan to help your teams accelerate software releases faster than ever before.

SPK’s Approach to DevOps
Our experts have worked with automation and software release systems for years, and were leaders in DevOps tool implementations with many of our clients. Our experts will work side-by-side with your engineers to ensure that not only are the tools implemented correctly, but we help train, coordinate and apply improvements to your software release systems for the future. Our goal is to help build the system for your future.
To achieve this, our engagements will normally include at least 3 stages (although all engagements are unique to some extent). These stages are:
- Discovery and Planning
- Installation and Minimum Viable Product (MVP)
- Integration and Finalization
- Training and/or Managed Services
Discovery and Planning
Our team will work with you to create a DevOps roadmap based upon feedback from your team, stakeholders, and others. This phase includes a review of existing and potential tools. The roadmap that is created will consist of desired outcomes and helping to identify the metrics along the way.
Pilot Program (MVP)
Using existing tools, or trials of potentially new tools, our team will help integrate your business, technical and platform needs into a simple pilot program or minimum viable product (MVP) for testing. This program is meant to learn from. This learning helps drive the rest of the engagement.
In this phase, we accelerated our learning to perform a successful DevOps implementation with analysis, design, coding, and automated deployment can reduce manual steps, minimize the impact of human error, and create time for more innovation. This involves integration of other tools, and creating a final pipeline that is scalable and repeatable.
Training and/or Managed Services
Not only can our team help build your CI/CD pipeline and train you how to manage it moving forward, but we can also help be the bridge for your longer term DevOps strategy by providing on-going managed services in the DevOps release pipeline. Learn more.
Cloud Infrastructure Enables DevOps
Because DevOps strategy revolves around people, processese and tools, our teams look to our AWS and Azure experience as a foundation of a new way of working for IT Operations and development teams. In order to form a way to quickly deploy new code, but provide the flexibility of recovery, we believe that cloud technologies are the key component to help solve common challenges such as manual deployments, delays from coding to production, and the lack of communication with all involved.
