What it means

Becoming a recognised DevOps Competency Partner with AWS means that we’ve been able to demonstrate a high level of expertise when it comes to DevOps integration with our customer’s projects.

Simply put – we don’t work siloed. We collaborate and streamline information during the build, testing, release, planning and monitoring stages – that make up the core delivery pipeline.

Here’s the highlights of the benefits our customers receive:

An efficient management process – One centralised playbook and source of truth makes project planning and management a simplified, natural and (almost) happy process. There will always be challenges in the orchestration of any technical cloud build, but having everyone singing from the same hymn sheet makes the actioning of tasks and remediations a breeze.

Faster delivery – When the teams collaborate, we get things done much faster. Helping to deliver on time and ahead of schedule, freeing up our specialists to refine architectures, exploring deeper with testing and so on.

A better pipeline – Continuous integration (CI/CD) is a software development practice in which changes to the codebase are merged in a central repository. This practice helps our developers and engineers detect bugs faster in order to reduce the time required to address them, as well as release revamped updates.

Motivated teams – Faster, collaborative workflows keep our team engaged, challenged and ready to tackle a project, step by step. This enthusiasm and motivation trickles into our customer facing presentations, catchups handovers and support sessions, ensuring our customers get a dose of our Firemind flair.

Advanced automation – The application of DevOps to our customer projects always includes the best tools for the job. These tools bring with them automated functions that dramatically speed up workflows, freeing up our team and yours on the more important tasks.
