Delivering faster application change – Triton DevOps for Data

DevOps for Data Icon Triton ConsultingBusinesses have always been under pressure to deliver new services, new products, new channels to market as quickly as possible. Keeping ahead of competition, meeting customer’s expectations and exploiting new business opportunities has never been more critical to success than it is today.

Most business change results in amendments to the underlying IT applications, but can developers efficiently deliver those changes when they are needed, with a solution that fully meets the business and customer needs? That’s the aim of DevOps.

What can adopting DevOps principles achieve?

  • Shorten IT change and delivery timescales, allowing the business to become more agile and respond quickly to market demands
  • Deliver a more reliable and robust solution, reducing the risk associated with IT changes
  • Improve developer productivity, reducing the costs and manpower required to deliver new or changed applications

The DevOps movement has existed for more than 10 years, but there is an increasing awareness that these principles can be successfully applied to application development on IBM mainframe systems in addition to the distributed environments that were the initial focus.

Getting the data element right is key to the success of any new development, and many organisations are realising that it is a vital factor in achieving the overall business benefits promised by DevOps. Triton’s DevOps for Data services extend the traditional DevOps project to ensure the data requirements are met. Triton addresses this in three stages:
