It is a bespoke managed service designed to deliver transformational Platform Engineering capabilities to businesses building and managing software projects. With a minimum 12 month agreement we take the time to understand your developers challenges and stakeholders objectives and use this to create a roadmap and backlog which we deliver over the duration of the agreement. Our customers benefit from our DevOps expertise without increasing headcount or the headache and expense of recruiting and managing consultants and contractors. Freeing teams to do their best work, unblocking their developers and shipping software faster. We include your existing teams in our workflows, we can work with your existing DevOps engineers. At the end of the 12 month period our goal is to have built the necessary capabilities for you to continue on your own.
We collaborate with in-house DevOps teams, freeing them up to focus on strategic work and avoiding becoming bottlenecks for project delivery. We use all the same tools as they do and follow hundreds of best practices to ensure our work adds value. Our customers also use our DevOps as a service as an efficient way of providing DevOps burst capabilities within their existing Product Teams without the pain of recruiting and managing consultants and contractors. Ever needed someone with high quality experience delivering commercial services on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, or with specialist experience in CICD, Infrastructure Automation and Cloud Management, or experience with opensource software like JenkinsCI, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Hashicorp (i.e Vault, Packer, Terraform, Consol, Nomad) or ElasticSearch? We offer access to people with experience and expertise in all these areas and more.
Businesses with no in-house DevOps can focus on building the best product while we create productive developer experiences saving upto 20% of their software development time and unblocking their developers on a daily basis and ensuring they never miss a deadline. One of our objectives is for developers to have high levels of autonomy within their day-to-day development process. We develop this into our pipeline strategy and infrastructure automation so that all the non-production automation happens based off of git events. In production we want to maintain high levels of autonomy but also provide safety to promote regular releasing without the worry of disruption.
We build a highly customised Platform to support one or many Product Teams.

We actively prioritise work that unblocks and accelerates progress.
We hunt for any processes in your development teams that is costing them time.
Kanban gives us better control of 'Work in Progress' and enables us to integrate.
We deliver core features and functionality to a set schedule usually in-sync with your sprints.
In general we are tool-agnostic, we use them all. Tools like Slack, Mattermost, Microsoft Teams, Basecamp or whatever tools you use.
We begin work based on our Work in Progress (WIP) queues.
So your Product Teams know what work is currently in progress, whats up next and whats being delivered.
All our work is versioned and any new changes are delivered in packages that are versioned ensuring we can manage the upgrade process.
We like change, our work is refined and mature enough to encourage changes. Before a piece of work enters the 'Work in Progress' queue we have a Delivery plan.
Everything we do considers the risk to your customers and the development teams. We build in methods and functionality to manage this risk.
Our DevOps Centre in Bournemouth, UK, serves our customers globally but we have DevOps engineering connections in Shanghai, China and Europe to serve local markets.
So that we make better decisions about future features, updates and changes.
So that we can make data-driven decisions about resource usage.
We aim to continuously improve how we serve you, using each stage to learn and improve in the next iteration.
Your people are the most critical components in your software development capability. With our DevOps as a Service, you can eliminate unnecessary context switching, improve the speed of anomaly detection and the frequency of testing, reduce the overhead of managing environments, do reliable deployments and harness monitoring tools and analytics to improve decision making. Protecting your resources is one way you can improve ROI on any investment in your software development capability.
Teams continuously get distracted with cloud service infrastructure and non-differentiating technologies. Distractions are cataclysmic for software development teams. They affect productivity and can erase entire sprints worth of progress. Not just when implementing but also the lengthy debates talking about them. Developing software is already very challenging and expensive what software teams need is more time focused on their problem domain; the businesses need more focus on product development and delivery.
Businesses are continuously investing in their software development capabilities, and our DevOps as a Service is a proven method of unlocking value. Improve ROI from productivity improvements which we estimate adds one day a week back into your software development capability. You will also be able to find cost savings from better management of cloud infrastructure with automation that reduces the runtime of resources based on the demands of your customers and software development teams.
