Build an agile DevOps culture with Firemind and AWS

There has never been a better time to remove the barriers between development and operations, improving workflows and shortening iteration times while ensuring collaboration and team productivity. Firemind not only implements DevOps best practices, but works in collaboration with AWS solutions to evolve your cloud infrastructure, security and development practices.

Our ongoing partnership ensures we have access to the cutting edge developments within AWS tools, as well as strong relationships with the DevOps focused teams in place to support us as a partner, and you as our customer.

Become Agile

Embracing DevOps improves team collaboration and removes the siloed approach to software development. This makes teams tackle operational problems and challenges with a design mentality, helping to move with the times and embrace better AWS technology.

Business enablement

Collaborating more effectively ensures changes can be made with less downtime, as well as offering routes for faster recovery. You are able to build a pipeline or workflow that is resistant to the many pitfalls faced when a non DevOps infrastructure is created. Saving your organisation frustrations, cost and time.

Culture growth

DevOps brings with it a pivotal change in the way your business works. From business value, to ideation to implementation, we’ll work with you to develop your culture into one that unites, not splits, your development and operations processes.

Next-gen applications

Embracing DevOps quickly integrates next-gen applications and services, using AWS. Whether it be AWS OpsWorks as an automation platform, or AWS CodeDeploy, to automate code deployments to any instance.

Managed services

Taking advantage of AWS services means spending less time worrying about set up, installation and operating within cloud infrastructures, and more time focused on your core product and business objectives.

AWS Partnership

As we’ve mentioned above, our partnership with AWS means that your business will always stay ahead of the curve. Instant access to new tools, services, features and support. What’s not to love?

Our DevOps Timeline

Firemind’s DevOps practice combines elements of the necessary cultural shift for your business, along with a hands on approach to key tools and service integration.

Our practice is heavily embedded alongside AWS’s ‘Top 8’ principles, combining; fast starts, managed services, scalability in mind, programmable revisions, full automation, built-in security, partner ecosystem and pay-as-you-go options.

Stage 1

DevOps capability

We begin with undertaking a thorough investigation of how each department currently works, from top-level input to entry-level staff. Our DevOps capability workshops assess your current development and operational workflows, as well as building a clear roadmap to what success looks like for you. These workshops are tailored and collaborated with AWS, to your current level of DevOps maturity, ensuring a bespoke approach regardless of the current point in your DevOps journey.

Stage 2

Delivery program

Once we have a thorough understanding of your business goals and defined a clear roadmap, we’ll begin with the creation of a DevOps delivery program, combining key AWS services, best-in-class open-source tooling and cultural change. The practical goals of this programme would range from implementing Automation, Infrastructure-as-Code, continuous integration/continuous deployment pipelines, continuous testing, continuous monitoring and development.

Stage 3

Going live

Once our DevOps system is in full effect, we provide a fully managed DevOps service that ensures your team, infrastructures and cloud goals can be managed, tailored and adjusted continuously. This high level of support allows your team to focus on customer-centric development, whilst we handle the efficiency and updated software necessary for interdependence. Our managed services are customised to your ongoing needs and can be tailored to provide the best results at the best cost.

Helping you build rapidly and reliably in the cloud

Hear from Darren O’Flaherty, Solutions Architect at Firemind.

“Working in a fast-paced DevOps environment has it’s many challenges. I can testify to this. I recently joined an organisation where DevOps practices are a central pillar to any new client delivery.

If you’re working in DevOps, you will agree that it moves at speed, changes are frequent, and the key to success is strong adaptation. Over the past decade we have really seen the emergence and adoption of DevOps, and this has in turn, spawned SecOps, GitOps, CloudOps, ITOps and DevSecOps (with many more variations to come)”.
