Agile DevOps for
 Traditional Applications

Improve Collaboration with an Integrated Approach

Breaking down silos and implementing a cloud-first approach to DevOps is challenging. Yet doing so allows you to deliver high-quality applications faster and cheaper while improving on KPIs.

An integrated cloud-first development process is comprised of the continuous delivery of quality code in small, frequent batches. The result is faster feedback loops, reduced defect resolution time, and accelerated release cycles.

To facilitate these deployments, infrastructure resources must be available on demand.

Enable Devs to Work Simultaneously and Innovate Faster

Network isolation in Skytap enables development teams to provision multiple replicas of full applications in parallel, removing configuration drift and environmental issues, while streamlining development, test and release.

Build your environment, save as a template, provision on demand, and adopt new tools and processes. Moving to DevOps for traditional applications begins with Skytap.

Integrates with Your Existing Tooling

Apps built for the datacenter aren’t excluded from modern approaches, either. Enterprises like the performance and stability of IBM’s Power Systems platform. Having been around for decades, The POWER ecosystem offers a wealth of tools including IBM’s Rational Developer and UrbanCode.

Modernize at Your Own Pace With Powerful APIs and Automation

Adopting Agile and DevOps often comes with changes to processes and culture in any organization. Skytap Cloud’s powerful API and command-line interface allows development teams to continue operating with the tools they use today. Through the Skytap REST API developers can provision and clone templates, configure new environments, and deploy changes. Alternatively, leverage the Skytap Provider for Terraform to manage and provision environments through infrastructure-as-code.

Case Studies

NBCUniversal

NBCUniversal were able to automate the delivery of their workflows, integrating IBM UrbanCode Build and Deploy. They also increased test coverage from 20% to 100% and accelerated delivery by reducing their test cycle time from 45 days to 60 minutes.

“This is the most powerful DevOps cloud I’ve ever encountered. It’s enabled us to improve code quality by orders of magnitude. Without these tools, we would never have been able to achieve these levels of quality and enterprise-grade consistency across multiple business units and applications.”

Fulcrum

Fulcrum were able to transform their legacy workloads into cloud infrastructure, modernize their SDLC, and decouple monolithic software to deliver a better quality platform to customers.

“As we’re decommissioning VMs in the datacenter, I can throw those into Skytap and have services running there. We are at a place now where all of our core product development, internal QA, and customer sandbox environments are in Skytap.”
