DevOps – Bridging the gap between development and IT operations

In our modern day and age, smooth business operation is dependent on reliable, high-availability access to business applications. However, interaction between development and IT operations is not always as seamless as it should be – for instance, problems can occur when implementing a new release. Tailor-made DevOps concepts from ConSol help you resolve these issues and streamline collaboration between these two departments.
Continuous integration helps you to improve the quality of the software, while reducing development costs. Benefit from proven strategies we put to excellent use in our own company to harmonize our development and 24/7 operations.

Why DevOps?

DevOps is a method that aims at removing communication barriers which exist between those who develop and operate IT applications. Quite often, there is a ‘wall of confusion’ that separates these two units within organizations. This may result in the development team creating applications without considering usability aspects, while the operations team may hinder successful development by withholding feedback. Such a setup is certain to run counter to smooth operations.

The ConSol portfolio – DevOps in action

DevOps is part of the ConSol unique concept that derives from its portfolio. ConSol offers all services from a single source for the entire application lifecycle, from software design and implementation right through to 24/7 operation. The key focus of ConSols DevOps strategies rests on optimizing release management and facilitating a smooth transition process from development to live operation. Agile development processes in particular require IT organizations to set up an agile rollout process. We demonstrate to companies how they can lay the organizational foundations for seamless cooperation and provide them with the right tools to bring these concepts to life.
