Case study: Implementation of Continuous Deployment process

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:

  1. The version is tested during building (unit, integration).
  2. The developer implements the task from Jira to development environment. He ensures that the application works and launches it accordingly.
  3. The version goes through manual tests.
  4. The version goes through automated tests (Selenium).
  5. At the end of the Sprint, the version goes to the SIT (System Integration Test) environment – the environment in which all modules are located. Here we can test their communication and integration.
  6. Once approved by the Product Owner, the application goes into the E2E environment (end to end) –  applications recognized as stable on SIT undergo full testing of business processes through various modules (microservices).
  7. After the Product Owner’s acceptance of the E2E version, the application goes into the preprod environment, which is a mirror image of the production environment in terms of infrastructure. It is tested here if the application is stable in the same environment as prod.
  8. After the Product Owner’s acceptance of the preproduction version, the application goes into the prod environment.

What do you need to know about DevOps? – FAQ

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:

  1. Planning – task management and scheduling the implementation.
  2. Application development– programming and code review.
  3. Compilation – building applications with the use of tools for continuous integration and version control.
  4. Testing – examining performance, correctness and risk using continuous testing tools.
  5. Release – change management, version control and automation of the release process.
  6. Implementation – implementing the application for specific environments.
  7. Service – all activities related to the preparation, configuration and maintenance of infrastructure for the created solution, including security, data management and backups.
  8. 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.
