MThree utilise DevOps and Agile methodologies combined with Automation, Cloud Computing and Container Orchestration to facilitate the moderniation of your people, processes and tools.
With years of hands-on technical knowledge as engineers and architects working on major technology implementations,
we have the expertise to transform your technology environment.
A cultural change orientated toward DevOps and Agile methodologies will give your business a competitive edge by increasing
productivity, stability, availability and speed, resulting in cost savings, increased customer success and more reliable revenues.
1) DevOps Assessment
Working closely with stakeholders and across your teams, we take a technical deep dive to assess the current culture, infrastructure, architecture and processes within your organisation, and help you build your long-term vision.
Results of your Assessment are used to create action points and determine next steps, whether that means continuing to work with MThree for a full Statement of Work, or delivering guidance on how you can successfully complete the work using your internal teams.
Whether you are considering embarking on a DevOps journey, or you have already achieved many of the people and process goals but require specific project support, like adopting the Docker Platform to use Containers at enterprise scale, we expect significant improvements across your metrics during our working engagement:
Some examples of the metrics we’ll be measuring include:
- Deployment frequency
- Number of deployments
- Mean time to detection
- Mean time to recovery
- Change failure rate
- Service availability
- Application usage and performance
We expect to see improvements in all the above throughout our time working on your projects and thereafter.
The results of the Assessment are used to create action points for next steps, whether that’s continuing to work with MThree for a full Statement of Work, or guidance on how you can successfully complete the work using your internal teams.
2) DevOps Transformation
This is an all-encompassing, end-to-end DevOps transformation across your people, process, and technology. Broken down into Statements of Work with clear strategic goals from start to finish, these Transformation programmes utilise MThree’s full DevOps Team.
DevOps Transformation programmes utilise MThree’s DevOps Team including Principal Consultants, Senior Consultants, Consultants and once prepared, we can also deploy our MThree Alumni & Alumni Pro Consultants.
We implement processes such as:
- Continuous Integration, Deployment/Delivery and Improvement
- Automated Testing
- Software Configuration Management
- Version Control
- Cloud Computing
- Container Orchestration
Our implementations will increase collaboration between teams, share responsibility, break down organisational silos and automate your workflow within pipelines.
3) DevOps Tools Implementations and Cloud Migrations
Working with your current applications and infrastructure, we determine the most effective solution to achieve your transformational goals. In some cases, our customers already know which tools they want to implement and use our expertise to complete the work. In other instances, we will design and implement the entire technology stack.
Some examples of the tools & technologies we work with include:
- AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, OpenShift, Cloud Foundry
- Docker, Kubernetes, Mesosphere, Rancher
- Hashicorp Suite including Terraform, Vault, Consul, Vagrant and Packer
- Jenkins, Bamboo, TravisCI, CircleCI
- Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Saltstack
- GIT, GitHub, Subversion (SVN), Bitbucket
4) Integrated Project Teams
You can scale your team with our qualified personnel and deploy senior-level DevOps Engineers, Architects and Managers, as well as leverage two unique setups outlined below.
Alumni Associates have graduated from top colleges and universities with Computer Science and other STEM degrees. After completing a comprehensive training programme with our DevOps SMEs, they will join you on site. At the end of the programme, clients can convert Alumni to permanent employees at no additional cost.
Alumni Pro DevOps:
Our Alumni Pro Associates also undergo internal training before deployment onto projects but have at least 1-3 years of hands-on industry experience. Alumni Pro can also be hired directly by our client teams to become a permanent member of staff at the end of their tenure on your project.
Many of our clients use our DevOps training capability as their main route for hiring future talent that will become their SMEs and Technology leaders. Training includes hands-on experience solving problems with modern technologies such as AWS, Docker and Kubernetes.
The DevOps course initially reinforces software development skills and infrastructure operations knowledge before moving toward detailed methodological and practical topics to enhance skills with DevOps processes, CI/CD, Configuration Management, Version Control, Cloud Infrastructure and Container Orchestration.
