Following a DevOps model helps to streamline processes and improve efficiencies. But the business is not satisfied – they demand even more. You can’t optimize a process beyond a certain point; it’s time to start looking at your architecture and make the move to a microservices architecture to help you reduce maintenance cycles.

Your Challenge

  • DevOps isn’t enough to meet business demands. You need to turn your attention to your underlying architecture to bring down maintenance costs.
  • You already have most of the skills. We are in an API economy and your development team knows how to publish and consume APIs.
  • Governance will be the key. To avoid uncontrolled growth of microservices you have to establish some guidelines and monitor them.

Our Solution

  • Current state assessment.Through our survey platform, our program generates hard numbers that identify key problems from a business perspective.
  • Establish common understanding. Our program will get all members of your team – business and IT – aligned around a common process and terminology, establishing a baseline understanding as to why a microservices approach to architecture may make sense for your organization.
  • Take the benefits from DevOps to the next level. You may have thought you’ve reached a plateau with your DevOps capabilities. Growth is still possible by implementing a microservices architecture. Our approach tells you how to get there through the creation of a project opportunity, effective communication plan, and a roadmap.
  • Measured value. Achieve real measureable value by implementing Info-Tech’s approach. We will guide you through the appropriate metrics to track as you transition to microservices.
