Like a Well Oiled Machine
Bring business, development, and operations together to streamline IT and apply more automated processes.
Every enterprise wishes they could trace a user experience from the glass to the data. But few have achieved this elusive goal. Our APM consultants help customers instrument applications, runtimes, agents, proxies, and many other techniques to determine how a user experience is affected by the many layers of a modern IT infrastructure.
Reduction in errors, increased speed, less busy work. These are all well-known reasons to automate the deployment of applications and infrastructure. While previously stated reasons are absolutely beneficial it cannot top the fact that without automation you cannot take advantage of the new container technologies. Concepts such as ephemeral containers, software defined networking, and dynamic workloads make it impossible to run an IT shop based on manual deployments. Our team of consultants can help you evaluate the different automation solutions available to you and leave you with a plan of action to guarantee success.
Snowflakes are nice on a ski vacation. They are among the worst things that can happen in an application deployment. You need to know what code, what configuration, and what system switches are active in any node of today's complex IT environments. Zilker consultants help our customers to achieve standardization and compliance of code and infrastructure deliverables.
A few years ago it was a funny cliche' when an organization could only release application code once per quarter or half of the year. Now, this is the kind of fact that can lead to the identification of an underperforming business. Zilker consultants are helping customers to define automated tools for the entire application deployment lifecycle (build, approve, release, test, and deploy) at a frequency that was simply not possible just a few short years ago.
Is there any doubt the amount of testing is a leading indicator of an applications' success? But how much testing is enough? Did you test the right things? Is your test environment indicative of what will happen in production? Zilker consultants have a defined methodology and flexible tools to help customers assure the capability of systems.
