What's the Cost Benefit?

Consider this: with a standard Waterfall project, your team is done when they’re done, and it is very hard to predict when that will occur. The scope is typically determined when the project starts. This scope then dictates the cost and time that is required. However, this means that the time and cost required to complete the project are variable. As a result, the true cost of the project will be unknown until its completion. From a management perspective, unless resources are unlimited, this is not an ideal scenario. 

Agile vs Waterfall graph

Unlike a Waterfall project, an Agile project embraces the fact that we know the least about a project when it starts. We begin by identifying use cases and stories needed to create a minimum-viable product. From here, we create a rough estimate of the size of each story. The work is then prioritized and work begins. Every few weeks, new features and produced and demonstrated with the customer providing feedback. The plan is then adjusted accordingly. Using continuous integration and deployment allows for fast feedback from customers and users.

As more work is completed, the amount of time to complete features becomes more consistent, and within a few iterations, we can establish a reasonable estimate of time and cost. The customer has complete control over the process, both in its transparency, but also in guiding the order in which work is done to maximize feedback and ROI.

Q&A for Sales Questions

Can you help with migrating from TFS/Azure DevOps on-premise to the cloud?

YES, we have done many cloud migrations. They can take anywhere from two weeks to several months for very complex situations. We handle source control with TFVC and Git as well as work items and test cases. 

 I want to do more continuous integration (CI) and deployment (CD). Can your team help with that?

Our engineers have extensive experience with build, testing, and deployment pipelines. We can typically do in days what others take weeks to set up. Of all the agile processes, continuous integration, and continuous deployment can yield significant returns in the short run.

What clouds do you support?

We prefer the pretty cumulonimbus ones, but also support Azure, AWS, Google Cloud, and a broad set of other private cloud providers.

Is it possible to migrate from Team Foundation Version control (TFVC) to Git?

Absolutely, we can help with this process and git (pun intended) your team trained with Git best practices.

I feel like I am not using Azure DevOps to its full potential. Can you help with that?

Azure DevOps is a very comprehensive offering in the DevOps space. We can help not only with common tasks like source control, builds, and deployments, but also enterprise portfolio management, testing, automation, and custom configurations. 

Why should I migrate our DevOps process to the cloud?

DevOps in the cloud has many of the same advantages of other cloud-based applications: no patching, no infrastructure, faster feature roll out, up time, etc. We understand that the cloud is not the right solution for everyone and we have executed many on-premise deployments and migrations as well.

How much experience does your team have with migration?

We have migrated millions of work items and commits over the course of the last ten years. We are committed to not only getting your valuable data migrated but also making sure that you are getting the most from your ALM platform.
