Invention isn’t plug-and-play.
Creating new digital products and experiences requires an environment where teams can come together to fail fast, prove quickly, and learn every step of the way. DevSecOps helps lay the foundation. It’s the only way to unlock the potential of the cloud and the promise of agile to accelerate innovation.
DevOps is the marriage of development and operations. It integrates engineering, QA, release, and production, using version control and automated delivery to optimize the entire product life cycle. Automated delivery and iterative sprints shorten feedback loops, reduce risk, and increase value.
DevSecOps goes a step further by building in automated security checkpoints. When combined with the inherent security benefits of modern cloud platforms, this enables unprecedented protection from costly vulnerabilities.
We’re not just going to pick a tool and implement it—we’re going to look at the way your people work and make recommendations about how you can change to help evangelize DevOps in your organization.
A shift in mindset
DevSecOps is successful when applied not just as a collection of tools, but as a holistic process, grounded in a DevOps mindset. Our DevOps philosophy rest on four principles:
- Technology isn't enough. An abundance of technology feeds the DevOps machine: cloud platforms, automation tools, continuous integration and deployment tools, documentation systems, and decentralized source code managers. But technology can only take companies so far. The human component is what makes DevOps vigorous, and that requires cultural change.
- Faster feedback means better products. Continuous delivery—the act of building and deploying software in short, iterative sprints—helps shorten feedback loops and fosters an environment of constant learning and experimentation. “The quicker that companies can get their software to customers to get real feedback on it, adjust on that feedback, and improve—that’s really what DevOps is about,” says Forman.
- There's no place like home. Some still view software development as a manufacturing process that can be outsourced. We believe you need to be close to a problem to solve it. Real-time collaboration fosters communication, builds trust, improves response times, and empowers teams to do their best work.
- Small is beautiful. Wholesale transformations are rarely successful—especially when it comes to something as technical and complex as writing and building software. The path to change is paved with small, incremental changes and quick wins.
