DevOps for Digital Commerce Platform

Octopus Deploy, Cruise Control, Jenkins, Docker, Team City, LogicMonitor, RELK, WSO2, HaProxy, PowerShell, Rackspace
This is a proprietary software platform which integrates commerce, marketing and data services for retailers and brands. It is a leader in the USA for the vertical market it targets. The platform offers retailers the most comprehensive software solution for planning and shopping, together with mobile, social and marketing tools. For brands, it represents the largest advertising network.
Digital apps require fast changes to respond to short feedback cycles, which can only happen in highly automated, predictable environments. Adopting the DevOps culture and practices meant that we built the new skills, audited and adjusted the release processes and re-engineered the software itself for greater modularity. As a result, the time to perform releases has dramatically decreased. This, in turn, translates into our client’s ability to perform faster and more frequent new product installations and to better respond to market opportunities.

Jenkins, Nagios, F5 load balancer, Microsoft Azure, SoftLayer, Amazon Web Services
This is a complete software development and delivery ecosystem for developers of healthcare solutions who want to embed speech recognition technology into their applications. The platform delivers cloud, network-based, secure speech services and client-side software to support speech-enabled clinical documentation from any application and on any device.
The DevOps team has been responsible with designing the complete application delivery infrastructure and is currently performing the releases, monitoring the systems and troubleshooting delivery environment issues. The main outcomes of building the development operations team and process were a marked optimization of the application delivery process and more time left to the software engineers for conception and development.
