Cloud Native in a Month

Cloud Native is a journey. The first steps are the hardest. Where to start? You have a greenfield project and you want to evaluate CodeNOW’s DevOps Value Stream Delivery Platform. Containers, microservices, observability: how to upskill your team? How to quickly show results and generate buy-in? A lot to think about, especially in the beginning. Let’s do it together.
We’ll provide you with one of our Senior Cloud Engineers.

Our engineer will aim for quick wins

DevOps and Cloud Native are transformative but complex. To generate buy-in with both the team and decision makers, the first Cloud Native projects need to show results fast. Our senior cloud engineer will guide you through the right architectural choices.

Our engineer will onboard you

Our DevOps VSDP supports experimenting and learning as much as deploying to production. Our senior cloud engineer will give you the tips to make the best out of it. You will learn by doing — with a safety net.

You will have questions. You will need professional advice. We have been there before. We have learnt. Now we teach. Our senior cloud engineer will answer your questions and transfer their knowledge.

*And remember. Not a single line of code you write depends on CodeNOW. We use a fully open-source stack. No lock-in. You can take your application and run it elsewhere.
How does it work?

Our four-week joint action plan has clear milestones

Our senior cloud engineer

Your team

Kick-Off Meeting (30 minutes)

Our senior cloud engineer introduces the program’s key objectives and the CodeNOW Value Stream Delivery Platform. The group validates the dates for all the remaining workshops. After the kickoff, our engineer opens a direct communication channel with your team.

Day 1 / Week 1

Plan your project

Your team selects a project; prepares scope and high-level requirements; and identifies the project’s business value. The project scope is large enough to provide measurable value to the business, and small enough to deliver part of the expected value in the collaboration time frame. The team prepares architecture ideas for review in the first workshop.

1st Workshop (60 minutes)

Our senior cloud engineer:

  • onboards your team and leads them through their first CodeNOW setup;
  • reviews the architecture ideas that have been previously prepared;
  • demonstrates how to use CodeNOW to achieve that architecture.

Day 3 / Week 1

Start Coding

Your team works on their first Cloud Native implementation and starts coding. Your team interactively shares the issues that they face with our engineer.

2nd Workshop (60 minutes)

Our senior cloud engineer:

  • addresses pending issues reported by your team. Our engineer detects possible anti-patterns and recommends best practices;
  • presents CodeNOW’s monitoring, reporting, and scaling capabilities;
  • explains in context Cloud Native concepts (distributed tracing, observability, horizontal scaling, and more), and how they deliver value to the project under development.

Day 11 / Week 3

Test, Deploy, Monitor, Operate

Your team releases code to the staging and pre-production environment for testing and deploys the tested code to the production environment. Your team interactively shares issues encountered with our engineer.

3rd Workshop (60 minutes)

Our senior cloud engineer:

  • reviews the issues shared by the team across the month of collaboration;
  • looking at the entire delivery cycle, detects possible anti-patterns and recommends best practices.

Day 27 / Week 4

We will open a Slack channel for your team with our dedicated engineer.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have more questions? 

Can we really get measurable results in one month?

DevOps VSDPs have productivity and efficiency as their constitutive objectives. CodeNOW’s intuitive user interface lets developers quickly design, configure, and provision the key components of the application’s architecture. Furthermore, CodeNOW has pre-made components that speed up the development process. We have observed that when companies are fully dedicating their team to the project and clearing their agenda, one month is generally enough to show measurable results on which they can further improve at a later time.
If necessary, our engineer can support you another month. Our experience tells us that projects that require longer than two months have a size and complexity that makes them a better fit for full-fledged advisory services. We would then refer you to our colleagues at Stratox Advisory.

Who will support me when the Cloud Onboarding Program ends?

You will get introduced to our Customer Success Team. They will handle your enquiries. You may also contact our team at Stratox Professionals if you need to temporarily extend your team with proven and reliable professionals in software development, analysis, or architecture. Lastly, our colleagues at Stratox Advisory provide digital transformation and strategic advisory services.

What if my team counts more than 4 members?

All your team members will need to subscribe to the CodeNOW value stream delivery platform. You already have four subscriptions included by default. You then only need to add subscriptions for the extra team members. Please refer to our pricing page for more information.

What will happen when I need more than 8 vCPUs and 64 GB RAM?

8 vCPUs and 64 GB RAM is a significant amount of computing resources. If you need extra computing capacity, you simply purchase it. Please refer to our pricing page for more information .
