Approach

Undertaking large-scale engineering projects involves inherent risk. In order to ensure your return on investment, our approach consists of four distinct phases:

  • Discovery
  • Proof of Concept (PoC)
  • Pilot
  • Production

This proven process is designed to introduce container platforms to the enterprise and gives you the ability to steer the project’s direction. We implement agile processes to give you a finer grain of control, should you need it. We will work with you to:

  • Produce a readiness assessment
  • Provision environments

We will help you select an appropriate app to host in your first container and transform an existing application into a containerised app without touching a line of code.

A working PoC

With the completion of a PoC, you will have evidence of what the platform can achieve and will have all the tools and templates to expand into the next phase.

The PoC will produce:

  • An app deployed in a test environment
  • Registry
  • UCP
  • Kubernetes/Swarm
  • Preliminary pipelines
  • Build images
  • Deploy to test environment
  • Basic RBAC

Pilot Phase

During the pilot, we will extend the PoC by integrating it with your user repository, enabling more security features, and configuring production-like workflows involving image signing and chain-of-custody features. This phase ends in production readiness with a number of apps ready to release.

Moving to production

We will undertake enterprise-wide scaling and integration, as per your requirements.
