‘The pace of change has never been this fast, yet it will never be this slow again’, said Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada in his 2018 speech at Davos. It is both: exciting and scary to even think that every time we blink, there is someone new releasing another product, feature, solution, or idea with enough ‘oomph’ to revolutionize our worlds. Yet, our lives don’t necessarily improve, because we navigate in an ocean of data, with directions changing rapidly, making our ability to focus scarce.
At Hicron, we tackle this new reality with two concepts: digital transformation and DevOps. Let’s use this blog to unpack these ideas and see how together they may contribute to our organizations.
Digital transformation is a process that leverages digital technologies: cloud computing, automation, big data, analytics, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as the common use of mobile devices to fundamentally transform how we deliver value to our customers.
It is also a cultural shift: we must be willing to embrace it and experiment with it across multiple layers of our organizations to improve our operations, enhance customer experiences, and stay competitive in this rapidly changing marketplace.
One of the key enablers of digital transformation is DevOps. Let’s explore what it means and how it is used to drive digital transformation.
DevOps is a development methodology to deliver software quicker and more reliably by breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
DevOps comes with a set of best practices and standardized tools to promote collaboration, integration, and automation between multiple teams, even across multiple organizations. Essentially, it creates an efficient working environment to keep adjusting software development and adjust to the rapidly changing business goals.
Digital transformation involves leveraging digital technologies. DevOps allows introducing changes to your software quicker, easier, and without customer disruption. Here are some of the ways that DevOps supports digital transformation:
In order to effectively use DevOps for digital transformation, we prioritize the following key development and operational areas:
Digital transformation is a complex and multifaceted process that requires a holistic approach. DevOps is a key enabler of digital transformation, as it enables organizations to deliver software more quickly and reliably. By focusing on automation, continuous integration and delivery, collaboration, monitoring and feedback, and culture, organizations can effectively leverage DevOps to drive digital transformation and help business organizations to stay ahead of their competitors.
After carefully evaluating suppliers, we decided to try a new approach and start working with a near-shore software house. Cooperation with Hicron Software House was something different, and it turned out to be a great success that brought added value to our company.
With HICRON’s creative ideas and fresh perspective, we reached a new level of our core platform and achieved our business goals.
