WHAT IS DEVOPS?
IT solutions delivered in today’s digital age
DevOps focuses on engineering and automation practices for development and operations and the cultural alignment between those teams. It is the innovative engine that enables the continuous evolution of IT systems, bringing business, development and operations stakeholders together to streamline IT delivery. iTech AG’s DevOps services helps organizations define, implement and run DevOps to compete successfully in today’s fast pace digital world. DevOps represents both a technology and a culture change. In the DevOps environment, no longer are applications “built” as one distinct activity and “maintained” as another. Rather, automation techniques are utilized for deployment, environment set-up, configuration, monitoring and testing. This accelerates the interaction between development teams, which focus on building applications, and operations teams, which are accountable for releasing and maintaining those applications. The result: faster, more predictable deployments to market, performed with radically greater efficiency, to enable companies to sustain their competitive edge, enter new markets and scale their business.
Agility is needed to keep up with today’s market
DevOps is an innovative engineering practice that can deliver applications faster with more flexibility, allowing companies to operate in a more streamlined manner. It allows companies to shift from traditional phased delivery models to a continuous delivery mindset, made possible by better integrating teams within IT and employing more automated processes.
Customer-facing digital and mobile applications require rapid change without compromising quality in order to respond to very short feedback cycles from customers. Enterprise systems call for more efficient and automated development and deployment approaches to keep pace with business. DevOps supports the requirement for greater efficiency and speed in both digital and enterprise applications, making it a key enabler in today’s high velocity business environment.
COMPREHENSIVE DEVOPS SERVICES:
Assessment & Strategy
We assess the maturity of your development and operations teams and then create an implementation strategy and roadmap which sets the course for DevOps execution.
We define an architecture that supports automated releasing, scalability, feature control, automated testing, instrumentation and operability.
We provide implementation services to design and build a tooling platform to support DevOps practices from development to production. We institute version control for all production artifacts and treat the entire data-center infrastructure as code. As a result, servers and even entire datacenters can be consistently recreated, whether they are on premise or in a public or private cloud. Additionally, we define the right governance and implement key lifecycle practices:
1. Continuous Integration
Allows for code to be integrated frequently and in small increments. As code changes are made, they are compiled and tested automatically.
2. Continuous Testing
Uses techniques such as test automation, and service virtualization to allow comprehensive testing to be performed on every change made. The same tests can be run perpetually in production to provide semantic monitoring of application functionality and performance.
3. Continuous Delivery
Helps IT shift from batch to real time releases where small changes (for example, an enhancement or single fix) are made, assured and deployed individually, potentially even to production. System change becomes the norm.
We help organizations change their IT operating model and implement DevOps behaviors. iTech AG provides learning and performance support, allowing those impacted by the change to develop the requisite knowledge, skills and abilities required to deliver the change.
IT Operating Model
iTech AG can help clients translate their business and IT strategies into a coordinated set of DevOps processes, roles, governance structures, performance metrics and organization structures.

iTech AG understands the importance Service Management in the stability of an organization’s IT services. We work with our customers to define and establish comprehensive IT Service Management (ITSM) processes based on ITIL v3 principles to provide the proper level of structure while still allowing them to be nimble. We understand the breadth of ITSM extends past just the incident and change management processes and requires detailed attention to other critical areas, such as availability management, capacity management, and the possible need for a service catalog. Workforce enablement is key to ensuring the right people within your organization have the proper tools to successfully accomplish their mission. ITSM implemented properly can help your organization align IT priorities with Business Priorities as well as integrate Cybersecurity through imbedded compliance controls. We focus on integrating those critical processes to deliver the greatest value.
One Integrated Service Management Platform
Today’s IT world demands efficiency to allow an organization to focus on their customers. iTech AG has the experience in delivering the proper IT Service Management tool (i.e. ServiceNow, Remedy, and other industry leading tools) to bring all the Service Management processes and data together to provide that efficiency. The right tool will provide visibility into the reliability and stability of your IT services, helping you track performance of SLAs and related KPIs.
Having one integrated Service Management process and platform can also help identify bottlenecks or trends in business disruptions or inefficiencies and proactively seek to remediate them. Integrating your Service Management processes is a challenging task and needs to be tailored to each organization. It can include creating a Service Catalog for an intake process of service requests and introducing automation and orchestration to the processing of those service requests. It includes consolidating configuration items into a single Configuration Management Database (CMDB) to provide visibility into the impacts of incidents and changes across your entire IT landscape. It includes integrating your incident management, change management, and release management processes to provide clear visibility and transparency on which incidents are being resolved, by which change, as part of which release.
iTech AG focuses on bringing visibility to your IT infrastructure, establishing IT Governance, and helping you focus on making fact-based decisions to provide business-critical IT services that power your enterprise. By integrating and improving your organization’s IT Service Management, iTech AG can help you shift your budget from operations and maintenance to innovative initiatives.
ITSM can be integrated with Cybersecurity to help imbed compliance controls into your business and IT processes.
