CI/CD Implementation and Modernization, DevOps services

The concept of continuous integration and delivery is one of the key practices that our company has been strictly adhering to for more than 10 years. Introducing CI/CD, we improve the technological side of a product and contribute to the optimization and improvement of processes on projects. Over the years, we have become convinced of the effectiveness of this practice and strive to transfer this knowledge to our customers. Experience shows that the earlier you invest in CI/CD implementation, the more money, time and effort you can save. Furthermore, the first significant results of the transition to this practice will be achieved just in a few months.

Why should you consider implementing CI/CD right now?

Types of JazzTeam software development services

Benefits of Implementing CI/CD

1. Timely implementation of CI/CD ensures predictability and stability of product functioning and reduces the cost of its further support. With continuous integration and delivery setup, developer-written modules are immediately built into the system and pass daily testing (Unit, integration, and regression testing), which makes it possible to arrange regular deliveries being absolutely confident of the high quality of product versions.

2. Thanks to CI/CD, bugs are systematically detected at an early stage of development, which significantly reduces serious risks for the customer. Among other things, continuous integration and delivery helps to avoid reputational and financial losses resulting from bugs after the product is delivered to production.

3. CI/CD allows for the rapid implementation of business functions that can be used by the customer while product development continues. It is achieved by frequent commits, instant autotesting, and regular deliveries provided by this practice. Customers can check the effectiveness of the implemented solution much faster, which helps to save the budget and create a product that will be really in demand among users.

4. CI/CD facilitates monitoring and improving the development team’s performance. CI/CD disciplines engineers, requires to follow certain rules (Code Style), use best development practices (Test Driven Development, Unit Testing), update the common code branch on a daily basis, and strictly adhere to the processes. The customer can easily make sure of the engineers’ performance and the correct allocation of labor costs: he or she can always see the results achieved by the team and individual specialists during a certain period of time. Also, automation of a large number of actions that were performed manually results in team’s performance improvement and reduction of probability of errors in the product due to human factor elimination.

5. CI/CD is the first step towards technical debt prevention. Over time, regular work on the technical debt becomes more and more necessary and a very time-consuming task requiring significant investments. Eliminating the technical debt during each iteration should be the standard practice for the entire team, otherwise, it will lead to a situation where it is impossible to develop the product and increase sales. The sooner CI/CD is implemented, the smaller will be the technical debt, and therefore the cost of its elimination.

6. Due to the implementation of CI/CD, every project participant feels involvement and responsibility for the successful release. Implementation of CI/CD means establishing a certain culture in the team, in which software development and operational activities are performed in a coordinated and inseparable way. With this approach, the responsibility and interest of a specialist doesn’t end at performing his or her scope of tasks (testing, coding, etc.). By participating in the CI/CD process, each team member understands the current stage of the developed functionality and strives to achieve a common goal — to ensure a prompt delivery of software to users.

We implement CI/CD iteratively and painlessly, effectively overcoming learned helplessness and possible resistance of teams. We implement the full Continuous Integration cycle with Jenkins/Hudson (and any other CI/CD tools) and automate project building with Maven. If necessary, we use Docker and other container technologies for deployment automation.

We have expertise in the following areas of work related to CI/CD implementation:

  • Comprehensive implementation of CI/CD processes from scratch.
  • Development of the existing CI/CD process.
  • Integration of autotests into the CI/CD process.
  • Optimization of the version control system (Git) use strategy.
  • Optimization of the delivery process through CI/CD.
  • Solving related business problems (painless expansion of the development team).

Software Maintenance and Support Services

Software Maintenance and Support ServicesAfter completing a product, a customer may have new ideas for changing or improving the system according to current needs.

Due to our approach and principles, we effectively solve product maintenance and support tasks. Our company from the beginning thinks through and ensures the simplicity and ease of further development of the application. At an early stage of development, we integrate continuous integration and delivery into the project workflow. For continuous monitoring of the system stability, our team professionally implements processes that allow influencing the product quality promptly, implements regression testing, and provides the customer with the necessary test management tools. As part of this service, we fix bugs in the application, maintain the work of autotests and create the necessary test documentation. All of this allows us to effectively develop and modify the product. We also accompany the system with the necessary documentation describing its work, create installation and operation manuals for applications.

In case you wish to start cooperation with us within this service, we will be glad to work based on a T&M contract.

You will get additional benefits working with us

We believe that any task should be solved comprehensively. As practice shows, the successful development and scaling up of a product is only possible with competent planning, timely implementation of best development practices and maintaining a friendly atmosphere in the team. So, even if you need only one service, specific specialists or implementation of individual approaches, working with us you will get much more than you expected.

Regardless of the type of service selected, we consult our customers on improving the processes and technological component of their projects. Our team can suggest new ideas on the implementation of necessary practices for your product, create a long-term strategy for its development and legacy code refactoring.

Already in the early project stages, our managers arrange the processes in such a way as to ensure the highest efficiency of the team and the necessary speed of release of new product versions. In our work we rely on Agile philosophy and Scrum methodology, our engineers are guided by extreme programming principles. Thus, regardless of the type of service you get competent management of your project.

On all projects, we first implement continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) or significantly improve the existing CI/CD processes. With a customized continuous integration and delivery process, developer-written modules are immediately integrated into the system and pass through daily testing.

When we find bottlenecks in the product, we apply autotests to that part of the code. Due to the timely implementation of CI/CD and autotesting, we can establish regular deliveries of the product being fully confident in its high quality. Working in short iterations, we deliver new functionality every 1-2 weeks.

Transferring experience to the customer, striving to improve processes and the product are the most important standards of JazzTeam. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that after implementing the developed features and completing the project, the customer will not only get a great product, but also full confidence in its stability, high-quality code, as well as the upgrading possibility and cost-effective support. We achieve this high result through an engineering approach, timely implementation of best development and testing practices, and competent management.
