IMPLEMENTING THE DEVOPS PRACTICES INTO THE CONVERSATIONAL AI SOLUTION SERVICE FOR BANKING

PROJECT CHALLENGES LEADING TO DEVOPS ADOPTION

Prior to considering DevOps adoption, there was a certain scope of issues the Agiliway development team has faced. Amidst the key ones that were addressed immediately were:

  • old-school platform functionality: all software was located on the “physical (bare-metal)” servers at the client’s side;
  • lack of system automation: all software for each new client added operated slowly, which was time-consuming and inefficient;
  • absence of Cloud Services.

SYSTEM ENHANCEMENT THROUGH DEVOPS

Changes that organizations are facing today are triggered by the rapid development of technologies. It is important to come up with not a simple solution but with a strategic solution that will help an enterprise to undergo these changes smoothly without any drastic problems. Applying strategic thinking to cover the needs of our clients was our key goal in the solution search process.

  • The first and utmost important step to improve scalability and migration processes.
  • All the servers were located at our client’s offices, which was challenging in terms of operations, hence, it was agreed to start utilizing Cloud Services, AWS and Azure to boost the performance of the platform.
  • Since Terraform allows creating, modifying and enhancing the infrastructure using the code, it was a suitable option to put it into the role of a mediator between managing the external resources with the internal ones. Terraform is an effective tool for running even the entire datacenters using the configuration files.
  • Bringing together all the aforementioned components allowed to make all the processes automated, save a lot of time and resources, create a more efficient and productive environment, upgrade the entire system to the extent that it required a very minimum of manual intervention, and more.

BOTTOMLINE

Adoption of DevOps today is viewed as a must-have for any software development services providers as well as their partners as this is a fast-growing and distributing tech trend that is expected to stay with us for a while. Creating and implementing the best practices will improve the development and deployment process of an enterprise, reduce the time for changes to be introduced, simplify the update process for an application, however, still keep it secure and protected.
