OpenShift consultancy

Implementing OpenShift, where do you start? 

OpenShift is a flexible container platform that enables workflow automation and collaboration between different teams within your company. Using OpenShift allows developers to continuously manage applications in less time so they can focus on delivering new applications and features. But since OpenShift supports the entire application life-cycle, it takes time, effort and a lot of knowledge to adopt it within your organisation. We recognise 5 steps when it comes to adopting OpenShift:

  1. Define and review the architecture
  2. Define and implement the OpenShift infrastructure
  3. Develop and optimise the OpenShift pipeline
  4. Application development
  5. Review production readiness

 By offering OpenShift consultancy, we help our customers to get through step 1, 2, 3 and 5. Our OpenShift experts can assist organisations to solve specific problems (troubleshooting) as well as on an ongoing basis through support contracts. The consultants can assist your developers on-site or act as remote guides.
