We have analyzed four different case studies where leading brands from different industries implemented Orchestration in their DevOps Pipeline, and achieved considerable improvement in their process maturity, release cycle, and customer service.

Leading US Service provider:

A service company in the US comprising several clients and field representatives hosts their own website to engage employees and customers who use various applications to do their day-to-day operations. The planning and release was often delayed due to the slow code release every couple of months. To overcome this challenge, they sought the help of orchestration to align the process of planning and release execution.  With the implementation of release automation solution, the deployment time dropped drastically as an outcome. The company has extended its orchestration implementation to the development pipeline that provides flexibility to swap components within its configuration and log management.

Overall improvements:

The deployment time reduced up to 10 hours with downtime or layoff to a 45 minute delivery cycle with no outages.

Leading Netherland Telecom Player:

A telecommunication company aimed at increasing the availability of its CRM and reducing the implementation time of releases. However, CRM deployments are often intricate with extracting data, repository transport and sudden outages. The traditional methodology had several manual interventions that resulted in errors, lack of environment chains and compliance issues. By using release automation solution through orchestration, where the package deployed in similar environments, there is a drastic decrease in the time taken for deployment workflow, production downtime and repetitive work. Thus, the telecom company was successful in CRM updates and reduction of downtime.

Overall improvements:

The ultimate improvements made by implementing DevOps Orchestration in this telecom company are:

  • 30% improvement in complete deployment workflow
  • 82% improvement in deployment workflow
  • 91% improvement in 100ADM request deployment
  • 87% reduction in production downtime

The tele company was able to deliver quick CRM updates with reduced planned and unplanned downtime. It simplified deployment and configuration even for the most complex environment.

International Insurance Company:

An international insurance company aimed at moving applications into production through CI/CD pipeline and containerizing them among platforms to adapt accordingly. The codes from built to production are automated and the containerization tools are used to create the required infrastructure which helps in deploying packages to each environments with support services as well as monitor them. Monitoring aids in early detection of defects and, eventually in alerting and resolving them. This containerization method of orchestration enabled to build, code, test and deploy without infrastructure assistance. Thus, without the involvement of multiple systems, one can ship applications to various environments.

Overall Improvements:

They are now able to ship almost a dozen applications into different environment in the development and QA stage, ultimately deploying them into cloud across the globe.

Global Bank:

Likewise, a popular global bank wanted to automate their manual development process and improve their software development and deployment approach. The bank had been using hundreds of applications and a number of environments that made them inefficient. In order to overcome this challenge, they automated all manual processes that lead them through development and deployment cycle. This resulted in leveraging the CI and CD aspects, which enabled early detection of errors and fixing them.

Overall Improvements:

The improvements made by implementing DevOps Orchestration in this bank system are:

  • 5 times faster release cycle
  • MTTD decreased
  • 19% decrease in functional defect
  • 40% decrease in downtime
  • 25% cost optimization

DevOps orchestration has the power to enable IT to respond ever more quickly to the needs of the business. It helps across various industries at instances like system rebooting, security and compliance as discussed above.

We as DevOps consulting partner, present our last part of our webinar “The Fourth Dimension of DevOps” which discusses DevOps Orchestration and Feedback loop that helps to improve software development.

We offer a sneak peek into our DevOps Template rule engine too.

This final webinar highlights:

  • An introduction to DevOps–orchestration and feedback loop
  • Why is it important
  • How does it affect the parameters of a developer’s requirement
  • How Aspire’s inference engine applies rules to arrive at a template for a given DevOps project
  • Benefits of using it to decide faster and build products quicker to meet customer needs
