What does it mean for your company?
IT as utility. Always available for your customers to use. Reliable. Changes traditionally cause most outages. With ICC, changes are always automatically tested on an environment identical to production. This to avoid unexpected outages at all times.
Pipelines | Infra-as-code | CI/CD | Automation
Roll out the patches to all systems in your IT application landscape making use of your pipeline. Stay up to par with your lifecycle requirements.
Pipelines | Infra-as-code | CI/CD | Automation | Lifecycle management
Design and define infrastructure or even complete IT landscapes in code. Which puts your environment in the desired state. Deploy this code to your infrastructure. Enforce systems to comply to the requirements set in this code. No more manual interventions to single systems. Enforce your landscape to be uniform.
Infra-as-code | Desired state | Automation
Real time insight into the cost of your running environment. Security insights reporting that can be customized to fit compliancy rules. Performance insight not only on infrastructure level, but also on the more relevant application layer. Real time. Available on web and mobile.
Analytics | Reporting | End-to-end monitoring | Application insights
Advanced stream/hot analytics is responsible for constant monitoring of your system and, when needed, triggers our automation engine to make changes. Predictive analytics ensures the desired state. Advanced reporting gives you and our operations team the possibility to drill down from the end user perspective towards the infrastructure layer. All of this ensures optimal availability and reliability.
Analytics | Auto remediation | End-to-end monitoring | Application insights
Shutdown systems during the night and on weekends if they are not in use. Have a system which is only being used once a month or once a year for financial calculations? Power them on when needed. Scale systems to your requirements without having to order hardware. Only pay for what you use. 20 – 40% cost reduction because of more effective working in DevOps teams using automation.
Rightsizing | Scaling | Capacity management
For cloud-native applications, ICC offers a Kubernetes based container orchestration solution. Through this, containerized applications can be deployed, scaled and managed.
Containerization | Kubernetes
We combine your current IT landscape with a new software defined way of working: digital transformation and transition for IT Operations.
With our solution we can unburden you on running your IT while in parallel offer the resilience required by your business. True incremental digital transformation.
How do we do it?
Partners in continuous development
The human factor
We work in agile teams covering development as well as operations (DevOps). These DevOps teams have a multi-disciplinary skill set, which covers cloud technologies, physical IT infrastructures, analytics, machine learning, and software development. We run IT as a factory with you as the factory lead. Our product owners partner up with your application owners to achieve required SLA against defined cost and security levels.
Continuous integration and delivery
The general concept of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery is applied to your IT. High quality IT Operations are achieved by means of automated testing, automated deployments, and peer reviewing using controlled pipelines. A controlled way to manage the application landscapes and infrastructure through software practices offers the business required SLA.
Code and analytics
Based upon latest IT infrastructure developments, application landscapes can be defined in software code. Through modern data analytics practices, performance and status can be monitored and automatically controlled. Applying the “software only” and “analytics first” approach, brings the concept of full control from a cost, compliancy, and service level perspective within reach.
Where do we start?
In a few days we analyze one of your applications for automation and make it software defined
We start small with your easiest application. One of your current applications, including the infrastructure and middleware layer, will be wrapped in a software-controlled setup. This can be done on any cloud, be it private or public.
Once this is completed, analytics will be used to determine the performance of the application in both the old and new situation. Security and compliancy policies will be considered and reported on. When the software-controlled setup has proven to be beneficial, the application will be migrated to the new setup. The ICC DevOps team will take care of the application and related infrastructure from that point on.
