Containers provide significant advantages in software delivery and enterprises are looking to reap the benefits. However, container adoption brings with it several concerns that need to be addressed to successfully realize the benefits. Enterprises need to understand aspects such as how to incorporate containers into their DevOps pipeline, the special considerations for security, impacts on their enterprise architecture, and many more. Without a clear strategy on such concerns, it can be difficult to traverse a clear path to realizing those benefits.
- Container Readiness scorecard
- Container Benefit Analysis
- Container Adoption Strategy
Why it makes sense for companies
We assess the state of software delivery in the organization how ready it is for container adoption. The Container Readiness scorecard shows the results of this analysis against the assessment criteria.
Additionally we create a container benefit analysis to clearly outline the benefits the organization will receive with adoption of containers in end to end software delivery. The benefits are illustrated in terms of metrics such as scalability, security, release frequency, and others.
This is our proposed strategy for the organization to move towards container adoption. It outlines both the technology aspects as well as the governance aspects that the enterprise will need execute for successfully adopting containers and receiving the benefits that they bring to make DevOps and software delivery more efficient.
The technology part of the strategy covers aspects such as which container technology to use, the recommended orchestration platform, any additional DevOps tools, and others.
In the governance part of the strategy we will look at aspects such as adherence to the company security policies, licensing models to use for the tools and platforms, how to maintain audibility with the news set up, and others.
