Finantrix DevOps Guide is an overview and a runbook for the CIOs and IT leaders. Devops is the latest trend taking the IT world by storm. Our DevOps Guide is a conceptual outline of the new paradigm and a pragmatic playbook for understanding and implementing DevOps in a complex IT ecosystem.

Why is DevOps a critical consideration for IT Leadership in Financial Services?

Today, financial services firms are the epitome of “technology companies which happens to be in financial services.” Speed and agility are always a challenge for BFSI firms with legacy IT landscapes. DevOps helps reduce the long release cycles and quick and incremental deliveries for the realization of business goals.
With all the hype and noise around DevOps, it is essential for IT leaders to gain a nuanced and more profound understanding of the concept, practical approaches to implementing DevOps, and leading practices to make the DevOps practice a net positive.

Why should a financial services firm embrace DevOps?

  • Customer satisfaction improvements
  • Service quality improvements
  • Reliability of IT service delivery
  • Frictionless collaboration between development and ops teams
  • Increases Velocity
  • Visibility into the end to end IT processes (Design, Buy/Build/Integrate, Deploy and Run)
