Build Automation

Automating release management

In the right hands, build automation offers huge time and cost saving benefits - minimising risk and optimising quality. It lays the foundation for continuous delivery, and combined with DevOps expertise, offers clients an efficient and highly effective way of managing their releases.

Because our ethos is to deliver state-of-the-art best practice throughout any implementation engagement, build automation is a specialism that we champion – embracing the culture of continuous delivery and DevOps. 

We understand that DevOps is a means to an end, and our consultancy experience in focussing on non-functional and operational concerns such as performance, manageability and reliability ensures that the DevOps tools and processes put in place are delivering real-world improvements - rather than just being used because they are fashionable.

Our expertise and experience across the application delivery lifecycle gives us an unmatched ability to exploit the potential of leading automation utilities - designing cookbooks and recipes informed by a deep understanding of production objectives. As long-time practitioners of Puppet, Salt and Ansible - and now partnering with Chef - we’ve adopted the very best open source and commercial automation technologies on the market, pioneering best-use techniques and passing on our expertise to clients through personal coaching and training workshops.
