DevOps - Modern Enterprise Applications

You are tired of hardware, device and operation system manual configuration for each application that you develop? Do you struggle with moving toward infrastructure as code – manage and provision the technology stack for your applications through software, rather than using manual process?

Nowadays working on software quality improvement and reducing risk in your application development is not easy. Aim of modern DevOps with Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) is to provide a smart and short development lifecycle, and receive rapid feedback so that when a defect is introduced into the code base, it is identified and corrected as soon as possible.

If you recognize yourself in these questions/topics we can jumpstart you in right direction, and help you set modern and sustainable DevOps to prepare you to produce truly Cloud-native applications.

CI/CD pipeline is one of the best practices for DevOps teams to implement.

How to start?

Nowadays, the biggest advantage for any company is how fast you can create value for customers, and the same goes for software companies also. But turning idea to production is not so easy process, because being fast is not the only desirable characteristics. Among others your solution has to be reliable, secure and most importantly on time.

  • Not so long ago our path from idea to production require following sequential steps:
  • Requirements gathering and documentation
  • System design
  • Code and unit testing
  • System testing
  • User acceptance testing
  • Bug fixes
  • Product delivery

In a nutshell – this led to slow software delivery process. 

Communication between business, development and operations takes place on many different levels and quite often produce confusion. Delivery and handoffs between different groups involved in overall process introduce noticeably waiting time and lead to further opportunity for hesitation and disruption. Slow, error-prone manual processes, delays, handoffs, unpredictable repair and fix cycle cause infrequent releases. 

And when a large number of changes and fixes are infrequently released in a large batch, the go-live is always a time of high stress and is often followed by days and weeks of babysitting period and emergency patches. 

So in all these circumstances the question “What’s the matter with you software people, your projects always finish late! ” is understandable, because how business ever release features quickly and reliably under these circumstances? 

THE SOLUTION

  • Solution consists of the established DevOps environment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, with CI/CD pipeline, ready for developers to use immediately. Implementation includes:
  • Evaluation of client’s needs and DevOps maturity.
  • Identification of bottlenecks in DevOps pipeline.
  • Blueprint for best solution fit for customer, considering not only technology but also the ROI.
  • Final result is client-tailored solution covering complete DevOps process, including:
  • Task management (BA write stories)
  • Developers get the plan from project administration tool (Jira or Oracle developer cloud service)
  • Developers commit code in SCM (Git, GitHub)
  • CI Tool (Jenkins) autopool on git commit
  • CI Tool trigger build
  • CI Tool run test cases, code coverage, code quality and security test.
  • CI Tool push final artifact (Docker Image) to repository
  • After successful QA code deployed on Kubernetes cluster
  • Kubernetes cluster managed by Ansible/Terraform
  • Application monitoring and instrumentation.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Provides clients with flexible and secure possibility to establish DevOps pipeline in Oracle Cloud or mixed (hybrid, Multi-Cloud) environment:
  • Continuous integration and software delivery
  • (CI/CD).
  • Fast resolution of problems.
  • Fast functionality / features delivery.
  • Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
  • Improves business continuity and disaster recovery.
  • Respond quicker to shifting business conditions.
  • Customer can deliver stable environments rapidly
  • and at scale.
  • Infrastructure deployments are repeatable.
  • Easy to prevent runtime issues caused by
  • configuration setup or missing dependencies.

DELIVERABLES

Ready-to-use DevOps environment hosted on Oracle Cloud Services, or hybrid solutions with on premise tools or other Cloud services provider. Delivered environment enables DevOps teams to test applications in production-like conditions early in the development cycle. Those teams can provision multiple test environments reliably and on demand. Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) can also be validated and tested to prevent common deployment issues. At the same time, the Cloud dynamically provisions and tears down environments based on IaC definitions.

SCOPE

Suitable to both internal development teams in corporate environments (telecom industry, financial services, utilities, retail, distribution etc.), as well as for development teams in IT companies developing solutions for own clients and general market.
