Squaring the DevOps circle – with containers

As organisations look to embark on more ‘greenfield’ software development projects – whilst also trying to migrate and/or modernise legacy applications – their digital transformation initiatives will almost certainly lead to an exploration of DevOps methodologies.

The cultural shift that leads to collaboration between Development & Operations, driven by the need to accelerate application delivery, can be challenging.

Tier 2 Consulting DevOps

The move to Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) environments is now made easier with container technology, such as Docker and Kubernetes.

As a result, Tier 2 has committed to the Red Hat® OpenShift Container Management technology as our platform of choice and the enabling technology to achieve sustainable CI/CD processes.

Red Hat® OpenShift is infrastructure agnostic and provides a consistent application development and deployment platform. Operations teams work on a scalable, secure, and enterprise-grade application platform with unified container and cloud management capabilities.

Our role is to help organisations successfully implement Red Hat® OpenShift. We can do this in a number of ways:

  • by helping you accelerate application delivery with agile and DevOps methodologies
  • by working with you to define and modernize application architectures capable of running microservices.

Tier 2 Consulting has worked with international organisations for over 15 years, addressing a range software challenges in multiple sectors – including the compliance-driven worlds of finance and pharmaceuticals.

By setting achievable goals we can help you grow the process incrementally: scrum by scrum, sprint by sprint.
