One scenario in which the professionals were seen in action was when a large financial information firm transferring its operations to AWS ran aground and required assistance. As part of the transformation, the CTO at the client firm began a DevOps initiative that would bring all of the company’s procedures under a centralized system infrastructure. The project was led by a newly formed DevOps team that was ill-equipped, had a low budget and a shortage of staff.

Unable to initiate the migration of 75 percent of the data center resources of the group, the CTO employed Contino based on its exemplary service portfolio.

The consultants from Contino conducted extensive research over two weeks, making observations and conducting interviews across multiple client locations to understand the distinguishable factors amongst various teams. Once the assessment was performed, the professionals from Contino recommended that the client bring all of its DevOps operations under a single federated model. Further, regional teams were treated to quality education from the consulting firm to ensure a seamless change to the new structure.

As a result of the adoption of a single DevOps module, the client was able to gain better visibility, and meet all the needs required to operate in the cloud (AWS) successfully. Besides, allowing its client to achieve their goal, Contino also assured a decrease in time to mitigate production issues by enabling quick identification and annulment of bugs.

Having assisted clients in getting past their digital roadblocks, Contino continues to pursue more knowledge about the current trends in the DevOps space. The company is also seeking to increase its workforce across its many global locations.
