As IT goes through a fundamental shift, mobile, BYOD, and cloud-based computing are posing new challenges for IT departments with increased security issues.

The company, through their Agile Center of Excellence (CoE) is giving firms and agencies the ability to deliver more in a shorter time frame and with limited budgets.

Halvik is committed to delivering smarter IT—Agile, adaptive, and business-aligned. As Mr. Bathula states, “Leveraging our structured Agile development frameworks we have successfully integrated DevOps culture and processes to significantly streamline the delivery of software to production which realizes significant cost and time savings for our customers. This allows continuous customer feedback into our delivery and our clients are involved in every step of the development process.” Halvik’s proven DevOps methodology helps clients create a culture that blends development with operations in order to provide a seamless transition of systems and software through multiple life cycle stages.

According to Robert Tibbs, VP Operations at Halvik, DevOps is evolving from a niche to a mainstream strategy, and the company has been successful in enabling their customers to automate their end-to-end software lifecycle development. “DevOps is a philosophy, a cultural shift that merges operations with development, and demands a linked, seamless chain of technologies and processes to facilitate mutual change,” adds Mr. Tibbs. Halvik helps organizations develop a shared vision for DevOps, instituting a change in IT culture focused on rapid IT service delivery through the adoption of a “viable” methodology in a systems development context. “We help ‘rightsize’ your existing processes and supplement them with our mature and proven methodologies to be a catalyst for change by leveraging Agile Development, DevOps, and coupled with Automated Testing to significantly reduce total cost of ownership,” asserts Mr. Bathula. Each element of our DevOps methodology is supported by a playbook that our clients customize for their DevOps implementation.
