DevOps Services

DevOps is a movement that evolved from the ground up because of the need to have a better handoff and collaboration between development teams and operations. At IT People, we look at the end-to-end software delivery process holistically.

The first stage of DevOps is to review the software delivery processes, improve the efficiency, reduce waste and automate as much of the hand-offs between various phases. At this stage we review opportunities for continuous integration, testing, build and release.

The second stage of DevOps is to review the infrastructure provisioning and configuration process. We help our customers to review the process and gaps for acquiring and provisioning the development, lab, test and production environments. We make recommendations to identify the best solutions in this space based on customer usecases, and help implement solutions such as Puppet, Ansible or Salt.

The third stage of DevOps is to review the application packaging. One of the key issues during deployment is inconsistencies in the way the application is packaged including versions of the libraries, the databases, operating system etc. By leveraging containers we can resolve such issues. IT People helps customers to implement container technologies such as Docker and manage them via tools such as Kubernetes and Openshift.

IT People DevOps Services can help companies to build internal DevOps capabilities through a phased approach.

Big Data and Analytics

The business intelligence available to enterprises today is a highly strategic asset that can help organizations to be more competitive and grow. However, many organizations’ existing information management architectures and technologies are simply not equipped to handle the storing, processing and reporting requirements for today’s Big Data, especially considering that so much important data is generated outside the company now.

Big Data analytics (and the associated data sciences) is an area that companies must invest in to gain insight about their environment, customers, partners, market strategy and product innovation. IT People can support your Big Data and analytics initiatives by providing strategy, architecture and a phased implementation model.

Microservices Consulting

Today, organizations are in various phases of adopting the cloud and building cloud native applications. Cloud platforms such as Openstack and public cloud services such as Azure and AWS have attained a certain level of maturity, providing the comfort for adoption. In addition, with devops automation and container technology the approach to building applications requires new thinking. Now, Microservices architecture is the new paradigm for developing highly scalable and modular applications.

Microservices architecture holds the promise of being able to address some of the problems associated with large, complex SOAs as well as the problems found with big, bloated monolithic applications.

IT People have tremendous experience in assisting clients with adopting SOA, assisting clients to decompose monolithic applications into a more distributed architecture, and implementing devops. We now are well positioned to leverage that experience and other related technologies such as containers to help clients with Microservices adoption, architecture and implementation.
