DevOps

Our DevOps Software Engineering practice combines Agile concepts, Continuous Integration, Automation of Infrastructure and Code Management to achieve Quality goals and deliver applications in rapid iterative cycles. Our three pronged unified DevOps approach focuses on Architecture, Business Processes, Configuration & Test Management for delivering continuously improving efficiencies.

Knowledge of Agile Practices, Development Tools, System Automation and Scripting are required for Effective DevOps Enablement. Mobile Pundits' DevOps Team has unified the processes and practices to leverage benefits.
