      Let’s build something great together


        Due to the lack of a coherent software development strategy, the customer could not leverage the advantages of DevOps within the banking domain. Therefore, they encountered challenges such as fragmented codebases and inconsistent knowledge transfer, absence of automated testing, and extended time-to-market for their solutions.

        Organize scattered codebases

        Streamline communications

        Reduce time-to-market

        Solution & functionality

        Our team considered the functional requirements provided by the customer, with cost-effectiveness and reliability in mind, to build a fully functional DevOps environment. The customer is now able to manage application lifecycle, communications, continuous integration, testing, deployment, and monitoring with more transparency and flexibility.

        Effective app lifecycle and communications management

        Our team saw Atlassian products as the option, as their functionality provides smooth implementation and ability to practice agile management. We set up Jira to handle development processes and improve communication.

        Confluence was used to generate and store documentation, which used to lack systematization.
        Microsoft Teams was implemented to streamline communication between development teams and external collaborators.

        Version control and continuous integration

        Our client lacked a centralized repository for version control and streamlined CI/CD pipelines. As a solution, our project team initiated a transition to Bitbucket, conducted training sessions on GitHub beforehand, and implemented Jenkins.

        Testing and security scans

        The team implemented tools for monitoring software vulnerabilities and maintaining effortless product quality.

        TEST IT for a range of testing functionalities: manual and automated testing, autotest integrations, extended public APIs, test libraries, user-friendly test script editors, version control, and historical data management.
        Black Duck for adherence to security protocols and SonarQube to maintain code quality and cleanliness.

        Deployment, configuration, and artifact management

        Our expert team ensured the automation of deployments with DevOps practices removing previous roadblocks.

        Bamboo — core tool for deployment and configuration. It enabled seamless integration with existing systems.
        Infrastructure as Code (IaC) principles for managing deployments
        Terraform for overseeing cloud environments
        Ansible for configuring virtual machines
        Packer for images preparation and unification
        Nexus Repository Pro for efficient handling of large volumes of product and development data.

        Monitoring and logging

        Our team prioritized monitoring and analyzing events with various tools for better reliability, performance, and security of the software system.

        Zabbix — to oversee physical hardware and communication channels and generate visual representations of the infrastructure’s condition.

        Logstash, Elasticsearch, and Kibana — to gather, store and analyze logs and product metrics.

        Grafana and Loki — to deliver up-to-date insights into developing applications and maintain ongoing monitoring.ur team prioritized monitoring and analyzing events with various tools for better reliability, performance, and security of the software system.

        Additionally, the team integrated the tool with messengers for alerts and notifications with the system’s current status and progress.


        Kubernetes and VMware Tanzu were implemented to host and orchestrate containerized applications on virtual machines and physical hosts.
        This helped the team achieve centralized management, high availability, and level of performance. Additionally, these tools provide independence from cloud platforms and secure backup and recovery.


        Our experts applied hybrid cloud approaches for accessible and effective infrastructure solutions.

        VMware and Microsoft product stacks — for the private data center infrastructure to ensure the equipment’s fault tolerance
        Microsoft Azure — for hosting Windows applications
        Feedback channels from banking departments and end users — to improve product quality and implement immediate changes.

        Results and business value

        Our experts integrated DevOps strategies and helped to improve the customer’s development processes on different levels.

        Improved communication

        Efficient management

        Faster time-to-market

        10 times shorter mean time to recovery

        99.7% availability

        Effectiveness was considerably enhanced: the solution decreased the risk of flaws, enabled generation of logs, revert changes function, faster product delivery, and more effective planning, testing, and monitoring.

        Benefits for client

        Communication between stakeholders and IT departments was improved, management of digital solutions became efficient and predictable. The customer reached a faster time-to-market for their products.

        The solution boosted the customer’s metrics for critical systems: availability increased from 96% to 99.7%, and the average recovery time was reduced from 5 hours to 30 minutes.
