About Developer Self-Service & Experience (DevEx) Solutions

In today’s fast-paced digital landscape, equipping developers with the right toolsets and autonomy is paramount. Our strategy centres on providing developers with the platforms and freedom essential for efficiently delivering scalable and compliant software solutions.

“An empowered developer is an innovative developer.”

Our self-service features are meticulously crafted to accentuate security and compliance. Take, for instance, a self-service GitLab CI/CD pipeline designed for creating a Kubernetes cluster and deploying a website: whilst a standard GitLab CI/CD pipeline might offer the basics, our self-service pipelines are not only pre-configured with the organisation’s security policies and compliance directives but also enriched with capabilities like automatic approval requests, ticket generation, and fluid integration with other organisational tools and processes. This pipeline is prescriptive in its approach, ensuring that infrastructure configurations and SKUs are precisely tailored to meet the organisation’s specifications.

Beyond just infrastructure, the pipeline also places a keen emphasis on ensuring that code quality is up to the mark set by the organisation. This holistic and proactive methodology greatly diminishes the potential for oversights and reinforces adherence to organisational norms.

We’re cultivating a culture of innovation by providing developers with the right tools and autonomy. However, we also recognise the apprehensions developers often harbour about deploying incorrectly, making mistakes, or incurring undue costs due to lingering infrastructure. Our approach is designed to alleviate these concerns, ensuring that costs are controlled, and resources are used judiciously.

Infrastructure can be decommissioned using the same pipeline. This capability not only ensures that unused or unnecessary infrastructure is promptly removed, but it also translates to significant cost savings. Especially in test environments, where resources are often provisioned temporarily, the ability to decommission swiftly prevents wastage and ensures that we only pay for what we use. This proactive management of resources further instils confidence in our developers, allowing them to innovate without the fear of unintended financial repercussions.

How it works

Our approach centres around providing developers with the tools, platforms, and autonomy they need to be effective in delivering scalable & compliant software solutions. By offering Self-Service Portals and Automated CI/CD Pipelines, we ensure developers can access resources, deploy code, infrastructure and manage applications independently. This not only boosts developer productivity but also fosters a culture of innovation.

Our solutions are backed by our deep-rooted engineering ethos, ensuring that while operational excellence is achieved, developers also have a positive, productive experience. This dual focus ensures rapid delivery while adhering to organisational standards and security policies.

Benefits

  • Accelerated Delivery: The benefit of Developer Self-Service lies in its ability to expedite software delivery by providing developers with tools and platforms that allow them to access resources, deploy code, and manage applications independently. This also reduces the time from development through to deployment. With its deep-rooted engineering ethos, Adroit understands this need for efficient pace and offers solutions that streamline these processes, ensuring rapid delivery while adhering to organisational standards and security policies.
  • Improved Security Posture: Security is essential. Adroit’s insights on security in CI/CD pipelines emphasise integrating security measures right from the development phase. By proactively detecting and addressing vulnerabilities, organisations can safeguard their digital assets and bolster their security posture.

  • Optimised Costs: Developer Self-Service is not just about speed; it’s also about efficiency. Organisations significantly reduce overheads by reducing the need for constant intervention from other teams. Infrastructure created for development and testing purposes can be decommissioned automatically, further reducing costs that would otherwise be incurred by leaving it running.
  • Regulatory Compliance: In today’s regulated digital landscape, compliance is non-negotiable. Adroit’s deep understanding of sectors like finance and government ensures that their solutions are tailored to meet specific regulatory requirements. By integrating Developer Self-Service tools with compliance protocols, organisations can ensure that they remain compliant while benefiting from accelerated software delivery.
  • Enabling Business Growth: Every business aspires to grow and expand. Through Developer Self-Service, companies can accelerate this growth. Organisations can be more agile, innovative, and ready to seize new market opportunities by empowering developers with the tools and autonomy to respond to business needs swiftly. This approach streamlines operations and positions businesses to adapt and thrive in a constantly evolving marketplace.
  • DevOps Maturity & Developer Experience (DX): The symbiotic relationship between DevOps maturity and DX is undeniable. As businesses mature in their DevOps journey, the emphasis on DX becomes even more pronounced. With its engineer-led approach, Adroit ensures that tools, platforms, and processes are efficient and developer-centric. This dual focus ensures that while operational excellence is achieved, developers also have a positive, productive experience, driving further innovation and excellence.
