Ranger4 are DevOps evolution experts who help and guide organisations to make impactful, value-based change based on DevOps principles. This is achieved through the three lenses of Organisation, Interactions and Automation (OIA) ensuring that cultural debt is addressed and culture is managed as an asset, processes are streamlined and optimised and tooling is chosen and implemented on the basis of it being architected for end to end ideation to realisation. Ranger4’s suite of DevOps change tools, E3, includes solutions that Explore, Educate and Evolve an organisation’s capabilities through their DevOps journey.
At Ranger4, DevOps is not just a buzzword, it's a philosophy we live and breathe with our clients all day, every day. We define DevOps as making better software faster and more safely and see it as a natural evolutionary convergence of established patterns of thinking; Agile, Lean, ITSM, Holacracy, The Theory of Constraints, Safety Culture and Learning Organisations. 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:
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. We call this Ideation to Realisation and describe it using the DevOps LoopTM. This is the ultimate Metric that Matters.
