By means of automation, continuous delivery, containerization and Software-Defined Networking/ Network Functions Virtualization (SDN/NFV), Ammeon is approaching a ‘software-defined everything’ view of service delivery. “We employ a variety of technologies (mainly open source) including building Continuous Integration around Jenkins, using configuration management tools such as Puppet and Chef, and exploiting containerization capabilities such as those in Docker,” points out Jones. The company has developed a complete DevOps (Agile/Scrum, CI and CDs) framework to support its customers’ software-based service delivery cycle—impacting key areas such as time to deliver, quality, zero-downtime upgrade and cost reductions. Ammeon is focused on moving customers off legacy applications, accelerating the upgrade process and delivering services that help reduce organizations’ support costs and improve their bottom lines. Its newly developed solutions help customers get control over their infrastructure and achieve a better ROI.
The company’s roadmap intersects with a vision to constantly evolve and innovate its tools, services, and support. “Key elements include the packaging and support of a wide range of free and open source tools in unique combinations to match our clients’ needs, complemented by our understanding of challenging operational environments,” says Jones.
Ammeon’s vendor-independent approach to solution delivery and our preference for open source gives us a different perspective from large competing service shops
Ammeon’s vendor-independent approach to solution delivery and preference for open source gives them a different perspective from large competing service shops that tend to be dependent on the sale of hardware, licensed software and tools. “This is a chief reason our customers see us as honest brokers whose guidance they can rely on. We are very customer-focused and driven to project completion; customers know that when they engage with us their job will be done,” concludes Jones.
