Digital Business Transformation

We build it. We run it.

Welcome to the universe of agile project management

Anyone who courageously pushes back the limits with entrepreneurial foresight remains at the cutting edge. This is especially true in the digital business transformation, which presents galactic challenges for large and small companies alike. In order to remain competitive at all times, current business models must be reviewed flexibly and straightforwardly and new opportunities generated immediately from the transformation process.

This is exactly where Release42 comes into the game – or rather: into business. As an innovative management strategy for the optimization of digital processes, Release42 immediately enriches your company and improves digital strategies and processes sustainably and profitably. And no matter how big or small your sufferings and hurdles seem to be – agile working powered by Release42 involves all participating specialists and has a faster, safer, more efficient and above all extremely reassuring effect from the very beginning.

SCHNELLER

Ponderous software development is not our thing at all.

Instead of working according to the waterfall principe, we prefer an agile approach with dynamic intermediate sprints. In our company, developers and system admins work hand in hand. For shortest release cycles in highest quality – sometimes within a few days. This enables us to react meteorically to changes in the market and ensure the functionality of our software solutions in a timely manner.“

Transparency creates trust. That’s no blah-blah with stardust with us,

but credo and philosophy at the same time. We bring our customers on deck, if desired up to the level of the code crew. We provide insight into the close cooperation between Dev and Ops. This way, requirements can be taken into account on call and decisions can be made in a flash. And that pays off in the end on every little journey through time.“

Our BigMoDo celestial monitoring system does not miss any disturbance.

We combine different control systems in one umbrella system. This guarantees 24×7 operational reliability – based on the design of excellent high availability solutions in hybrid environments. Sounds complicated? Sure does! But for us it is an essential part of our hand and head work. And for our customers it is better than any insurance.“

Andreas Engel
Lead Operations

The crew is the heart of the ship.

With the Release42 strategy we offer DevOps like from another star. In perfectly coordinated teams we develop agile software solutions while your processes continue to run. Errors are detected and fixed almost at the speed of light. Our agile methods inspire even sceptical product owners, who are especially fascinated by our almost magical monitoring. In order to continuously optimize the development, we conduct reviews and retrospectives after each iteration step. This is not only good for teamwork, but also for all development phases.

Agile project management from a single source.

Under this premise, Release42 is a synonym for agile business transformation at the top quality level. At the same time, we provide our customers with high-quality services and support that developers typically should not have to take care of themselves. The focus here is on hybrid cloud structures and container services from conception to orchestration to customized setup. It is precisely this comprehensive range of services that offers our customers security right from the start – at all levels.

Release42 satisfies every IT commander

  • Fast change to an iterative approach
  • Shortened release cycles - immediate reaction to market conditions and changes
  • Increased willingness to experiment without disturbing essential processes
  • Highest transparency at all levels
  • Continuous reviews and retros after each iteration step
  • Optimal teamwork between specialist department and developer - Side-By-Side
  • A direct consideration of spontaneously requested features
  • Targeted automation through innovative tools
  • Less time spent resolving security issues

The DevOps Guide to the Galaxy​

The term DevOps radiates almost magically through the vastness of the IT world. But it is no longer a secret that behind this made-up word lies a group of concepts that drive the optimization of the development (Dev) and operation (Ops) of agile software development. Thus, all processes are automated through faster reaction times and brought into shape from the first idea to release and operation. Because DevOps means to accompany the entire life cycle of the software. The efficiency gain associated with this can take on almost extraterrestrial proportions and, not least for this reason, also impresses international company sizes such as Netflix, Amazon, Facebook and Walmart. A true accolade in the world of digital transformation.

Better together

But despite all the euphoria: If you want to design your agile project management according to the DevOps principle, you usually have to make a cultural change in the company. Changing the mindset is also of central importance. Because DevOps is always based on the cooperation of developers and system administrators. There is no more shifting of responsibilities back and forth, no more “bad” surprises, because the one did not know what the other did not want or could not do. With DevOps only the “we” counts. The agile working methods are based on empowerment, responsibility, trust and improvement. Decisions are always data-based, but at the same time they are based on empathy towards the customer. Sounds great – and it is.

DevOps impresses point by point

  • Higher effectiveness and faster adjustment cycles
  • Total overview at every stage of development
  • First-class concentration of results
  • Unrestricted customer orientation for problem solutions
  • Frequent minor software releases
  • Well defined feedback loops
  • Automation-centered approach

A programming room odyssey?

The future is cloud.

Companies that want to drastically reduce the effort involved in agile software development cannot get around cloud platforms. These enable significantly shorter time-to-market and a lightning-fast response to changing market conditions. However, in order to exploit the greatest potential, one should not only exhaust the technically feasible, but also adapt internal processes and structures in an agile and efficient manner.

Is everything really getting better in the cloud?

Straight “yes.” Because those who react with agile project management get to the market faster and win. However, companies often waste far too much time in providing and configuring the necessary basic IT infrastructure. This is where all the necessary resources are available at the push of a button. In addition, Infrastructure-as-Code templates can be used to completely automate the provision of the infrastructure and thus accelerate it even further.

The Cradle of Agility

Technologies are rented in the cloud. Thus, our cloud solution architect selects the right solution for the respective application from a broad, continuously optimized portfolio of components. Restrictions with regard to basic technologies and third-party know-how are a thing of the past in the cloud.

Definitely for sure

Long gone are the days when cloud computing caused panic among security fanatics. On the contrary: Today, cloud solution architects have numerous cloud services at their disposal that, with agile software development, avoid security gaps and successfully neutralize attacks. These include, for example, services to ward off Distributed Denial of Service Attacks (DDoS), automatically integrated data encryption options, audit and compliance components, and identity and access management solutions.

That's how we do:

We like to show what we have developed hand in hand with our clients. So you can better assess whether we are the right IT partner for you. Our flexibility makes it easy for us to fit into existing company structures. In addition, we attach great importance to transparency right from the start and document all our development steps in a tracking system. Because we want to become faster and smarter. Day by day – project by project.
