Rolling out new features for your customers should be so uneventful, you can do it in the middle of the trading day, without worrying.
If you run a team who builds enterprise .NET apps, you'll know that unfortunately, that's not always the case.
It probably feels more like this:
Enormous overtime costs to keep an army of staff on-call every time you release
Sleepless nights worrying about every deployment
Frequent outages shattering your team's credibility
Manual processes and data-fixes wasting everyone's time
It doesn't have to be this way.
The impact on your revenue, your customers' happiness, and even your ability to hire and retain the best software development talent are very real.
Delivering software without all this friction is possible - and you don't have to be Facebook or Netflix to do it.
At Zero Friction, we have years of experience using CI/CD/DevOps tools and approaches to help teams mature from ad-hoc, manual deployments to one-click, repeatable and realiable rollouts.
We'd love to help free you of the burden of your current approaches.
Here are some of the ways we can help:
When you spend so much time putting out fires that new features end up on the backburner, a fresh perspective can help pave the path to a less frantic approach. The DevOps Health-check gives you an idea of where to start when your status quo just isn't working.
If your team has started the continuous delivery journey but got stuck, a helping hand can provide the guidance and direction you need to start realising the benefits. An Octopus Kick-start augments your team's keenness with our expertise to get you releasing at the click of a button.
Custom DevOps projects
If you need a more in-depth strategic view, or want to enable more advanced capability like zero-downtime deployment, a custom project will get you there - fast. Drop us an email and we'll help you find the path to success.
Before we started our project to automate production deployments, I wasn't sure that Matt's experience would be up to the niche complexities of the Inlogik solution and environment. We have all kinds of weird quirks around the way we brand our solution for our customers, and also need to meet PCI-DSS compliance on top of that. I knew Octopus didn't support our needs out of the box, so I wasn't sure how we'd go getting all our compliance requirements met.
The reality was the opposite.
Matt came in and just got things done. When curveballs were thrown at the project, he reacted with agility and adaptability - the turnaround time on dealing with issues was great. All companies have their cultural nuances, but Matt obviously has experience working easily with different personalities, and fit right in from the start. We're looking for more ways we can work together in the future.
Head of Development at Inlogik
Leader in commercial card & expense management solutions
Matt's depth of automation experience and positive, "let's make it happen" attitude brought a great buoyancy to our team at a difficult time in a tough project.
The infrastructure automation he helped us build smashed our customer's expectations, bringing environment provisioning down from 5 days of manual work, to 45 minutes fully-automated.
Delivery Lead at Loud & Clear
Australia's leading independent experience agency
Working with Matt brought us to a new level of maturity in the way we build and deploy software. While we had some automation in place, we weren't really realising the benefits.
Matt helped us break through this plateau by dramatically decreasing build times, enabling zero-downtime deployments, and ultimately helping us move from monthly releases, to multiple times a day.
