ADVANS Group proposes DevOps services since 2007.
We support worldwide industry leaders and highly specialized companies by building and managing their software development environment.
Our added-value lies in our software/DevOps/QA deep expertise, technology agnosticism and ability to offer fully customized solutions.
We have 10 software development centers in France and Serbia and a branch in the Silicon Valley.
We can set-up a dedidated DevOps team to facilitate your software deployment and to increase the quality of the product delivered and running in production.
Inside a typical software team, there are:
DevOps is a set of best practices to be implemented to facilitate deployment and to increase the reliability of the product in production.
Developers and IT managers generally have two different goals:
The role of DevOps is to make a bridge between these two worlds, which sometimes have difficulties to understand each other, and this way help reduce the time-to-market.
Move faster to accelerate the pace of innovation of your customers, improve your ability to adapt to the market and gain efficiency and growth.
Increase the pace and frequency of publications to innovate and optimize your products faster.
Ensure the quality of application updates and infrastructure changes to confidently deliver your products at an accelerated pace while continuing to provide a positive end-user experience.
Operate and manage your infrastructure and development processes on a large scale. Automation and consistency help you manage complex or changing systems efficiently and with less risk.
Create more effective teams with a DevOps cultural model that emphasizes principles such as taking responsibility. Development and operations teams work closely together, share many responsibilities and combine their workflows.
Move forward quickly while maintaining control and compliance. You can adopt a DevOps model without sacrificing security, using automated compliance policies, tighter controls and configuration management techniques.
In a classical project organization, specifications are prepared, code is written, tested and in the end, after weeks or months of hard work, software is deployed.
Today, following Agile mode project organization, features prepared by different developers are regularly merged together on the development branch – we talk about continuous integration. And then, the code is deployed on a virtual machine (or in the cloud) all the time – we talk about continuous delivery.
This way, it’s not unusual to have a new version of the code deployed every day.
The DevOps role is to facilitate developers and IT managers understanding of their respective goals and needs.
To do so, we install a set of processes, tools, automation (tests for example), support and security (DevSecOps) so that it works as smoothly as possible.
In short, our DevOps teams turn policies into code through 3 phases…
Define a common development environment; think micro-service; track and log any code change; version automation
Continuous testing; code quality; minor changes
Automate provisionning; service availability; alerting; preventing outage; zero downtime; deployment
Here are our typical intervention modes:
Recommendations based on the diagnosis
Definition and implementation process
Time & material expertise
