Getting a Grip on DevOps

At Ranger4, devops is not just a buzzword, it's a philosophy we live and breathe with our customers all day, every day. We define devops as making better software faster and more safely and see it as a natural evolution of thinking based on the maturing and convergence of Agile, Lean and ITSM. We believe that for any business to survive in the coming years it will be essential to embrace devops thinking and practice its principles. Those who are getting it right are thriving.


We see time and time again organisations who have built small pockets of automation (CI/CD/CDep) but have failed to proliferate devops thinking. This is why we take a three step approach to every engagement:

  1. Organisation
  2. Interactions
  3. Automation

Changing culture is key to devops success - and the most challenging part. We humans are complex, flawed creatures who create systems and habits and display huge variance in behaviours. We help organisations daily understand who they are and how to make incremental change to a frictionfree, highly performant environment.

Ideation to Realisation

It's difficult to describe what devops looks like when it's done, but the goal end state for us is to be in a position where an organisation can measure the cost of an idea or feature from inception through to production and report back to the business the value of the feature once it is live, real time. This is the ultimate Metric that Matters. Our job is help you become devopstastic - typically we start with a Discovery engagement and move into Transformation.
