The DevOps approach together with the Agile principles used ensure a faster software development process and continuous delivery. This reduces the time needed to implement developed solutions on the market, which translates into Return on Investment (ROI).Stability of functioning
Understanding the mechanisms used in the process of infrastructure development and administration allows you to optimize all activities that affect the reliability of the operating environment.
The tools created by DevOps engineers allow you to quickly catch and remove errors before the end user encounters them.Cost optimization
Thanks to DevOps engineers, you will reduce costs related to application downtime, software version management or unused resources.
The continuous implementation, testing and monitoring process requires a high level of commitment from the team. Thanks to this approach, solutions are delivered in a short time, and they improve with every iteration.
JCommerce carries out IT projects based on building development teams and the services of DevOps engineers.
Regardless of the stage at which you need support, our DevOps engineers and the teams built around them provide high-quality software development services. We carry out software development projects by creating self–reliant teams in which DevOps engineers play an important role.
In recent years, we have managed to develop effective strategies and methods that guarantee the expected results in the intended time. DevOps services provided by JCommerce increase the chance of success, regardless of the project implementation phase.
As part of DevOps, we focus on areas which have a significant impact on improving software development processes:
A German company providing insurance services for the automotive market has created a digital platform enabling its business partners to manage their services. The platform consists of 20 microservices, forming 12 modules, including modules such as customer and contract management, document flow, payments and reporting.
To optimize the software development process, DevOps engineers were involved, and were mainly responsible for ensuring the process of continuous application deployment (Continuous Deployment). Because the project was carried out in accordance with Scrum methodology, the implementation cycle was synchronized with Sprints, which normally lasted 2 weeks.
The result of the DevOps engineers’ work was a reduction in the time required for application delivery and the automation of tasks that previously would have had to be performed manually. Engineers also support development teams in solving problems, going beyond standard software development and making technical and architectural decisions.
The implemented process of continuous implementation functioned independently for each module and consisted of the following steps:
JCommerce has obtained the title of Gold Microsoft Partner in the area of DevOps. This distinction is confirmation of our competences in the following areas:
DevOps is a modern approach to the software development process. It assumes close cooperation between the areas of development (Dev), QA and maintenance (Ops). The main aim of this approach is to create and optimize software development processes to achieve the highest level of productivity, while maintaining high quality and stability of operation.
DevOps covers all elements of the software life cycle and the continuous integration and implementation process. The DevOps process can be divided into eight steps:
Planning – task management and scheduling the implementation.
Application development– programming and code review.
Compilation – building applications with the use of tools for continuous integration and version control.
Testing – examining performance, correctness and risk using continuous testing tools.
Release – change management, version control and automation of the release process.
Implementation – implementing the application for specific environments.
Service – all activities related to the preparation, configuration and maintenance of infrastructure for the created solution, including security, data management and backups.
Monitoring – monitoring the performance and functioning of the application, as well as errors and UX analysis.
The DevOps approach covers many aspects of software development, including the Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery method. CI/CD is a method based on the assumption of continuous provision of tested amendments to the code, ensuring the stable functioning of the application. CI describes the process of making minor changes by developers, which are periodically tested. The CD, on the other hand, covers the process of automating the implementation of both the application itself and the amendments provided to all supported environments.
The cloud for DevOps automation is an ideal platform for testing, implementation and application development. It ensures the centralized management of often distributed and complex processes. As a result, DevOps engineers can scale and optimize infrastructure performance, depending on the requirements, which ensures the stable functioning of the application.
