The IT services firm trying to compete in today’s crowded landscape of big strategic vendors and system integrator “body shops” will have to find a better way to position itself that simply stating they have the best quality processes or skilled practitioners who can “do” all the latest digital buzzwords like DevSecOps, Cloud, IoT and AI projects for clients.
We recently heard from Infostretch about a different services approach to application quality and delivery. For a mid-sized firm of about 1000 consultants, it has built up a substantial base of large enterprise clients in healthcare, financial, travel and automotive markets.
It minimizes team size in engagements by deploying smaller expert squads who train the client’s own staff on why they are approaching agile digital transformation. For instance, a hotel chain seeking Continuous Delivery and Agile capabilities in its shop gets CloudBees-certified Jenkins/CI instructors as well as experts in deploying container-based environments to work with their teams in changing their practices through the transition.
“Our customers are all asking us ‘Why DevOps?’,” says Andrew Morgan of Infostretch. “Yes, all clients want business value, to accelerate timelines and deliver for their customers. We need to not only understand their existing legacy tools and processes, but build up the client’s skills and IP in order to migrate their technology and people to transform and scale.”
