1. Assessment & Planning
Assess the current organizational situation and gain a deep understanding of the as-is state of the current infrastructure, architecture, and processes.
Create a roadmap for improving processes, toolchains, security, and automating infrastructure.
Involve all major stakeholders in building a DevOps culture in the organization.
2. Automated Infrastructure
Automate infrastructure through robust Infrastructure as Code (IaC) practices.
Provision and configure build servers, testing, staging, and production environments to ensure continuity.
Benefit from automatic provisioning, configuration, and control of all environments with no human error.
3. Continuous Integration
Work on the same project trunk and integrate code into it as branches. Merge code changes into a single repository.
Execute automated builds and test runs every time a team member makes any changes to version control.
Obviate merge conflicts, identify and fix bugs early in the development process, and avoid duplicated efforts.
4. Continuous Deployment
Schedule and deploy complex applications to the necessary infrastructure environments.
Run changes throughout the CI/CD pipeline and directly deploy builds to production environments without bugs or delays.
Ensure that software is always release-ready with updated versions of the application, in the working state, automatically put into production.
5. Resource Planning
Plan for the correct amount of resources needed by auditing current skill sets and the existing infrastructure.
Create a strategy for resource scaling while taking into account business needs and stakeholder expectations.
Communicate plans with all stakeholders in order to achieve alignment of resource requirements with client needs.
