Question your application lifecycle and achieve innovation

(RedBridge)

Dare to challenge existing solutions so that you can focus on the business of today and tomorrow.

drift

From now on, companies will have to re-examine and challenge all their branches of activity if they are to respond more quickly to change and keep up with the business environment. More than ever, this involves digital businesses, where agility is a must.

One term you are likely to hear more than any other this year is “digital transformation”. Something that requires insight, leadership and flexible methods. If you work with digital transformation from an IT perspective, you will need platforms based on an underlying philosophy that assumes that anything can change. A flexible IT architecture allows you to benefit immediately from the changes and trends appearing on the market. But you have to be able to question and review things in the shortest possible time.

Plan for innovation

The leading companies in digital development plan for innovation. Google works e.g. on the basis of the 70/20/10 model, where 70% is dedicated to the core business, 20% to improvement innovation and a whole 10% is devoted to new ideas. Without knowing whether the new ideas have a secure future, Google still adheres to the plan. The clarity in their set-up generates drive, something that arouses interest on the outside and involvement within. For RedBridge, the route to continuous innovation is rapid and secure application development.

This is how you can gain the edge

Does it take a long time to roll out new functionality? Do you have problems in continuously making changes and increasing capacity? This is where open standards and APIs in the cloud make a big difference. Containers, agile development and continuous roll-out are solutions you ought to have if you want to improve, add and develop. Software like OpenShift and Docker containers allows you to test, learn and adjust. The quicker you can roll out the new applications that give your business an edge over your competitors, the better. Innovation requires support processes and infrastructures that make it easy to develop and adapt new solutions.

Cloud services underpin the development process

With application development and server capacity in the cloud, you can engage in a process of continuous change. This allows you to work in little steps with frequent roll-out. With DevOps you get an agile, efficient and collaborative development, hosting and maintenance environment with an automated delivery cycle for your applications. If you are quicker at rolling out applications, are able to implement continuous changes and increase capacity, you also minimise the risk of major or unexpected quality problems. Our services for application development (Apps) and server capacity (Compute) can easily be integrated with one another and with your environment.

Organise to deliver

Start by asking how to best organise yourself to create innovation via an effective and profitable lifecycle for your applications. Identify the expertise needed and how processes for infrastructure and development can best be coordinated and optimised. Using DevOps allows you to obtain an efficient and collaborative, development and maintenance process, as well as a continuous and automated delivery cycle for your applications.
