Gain business traction with Taos DevOps solutions 

  • Improve business agility. Monolithic applications are rigid, slow, and costly to maintain and update. Adopting a modern DevOps culture enables businesses to use updated tools and agile processes to quickly develop, release, and update applications that lower costs and enhance competitiveness. 
  • Application modernization. Legacy monolithic applications and their supporting processes are not compatible with modern technologies such as microservices and cloud-native tools. They also do not support future business needs. By embracing a DevOps culture, companies can transform most of the old apps with containerized microservices that benefit from more efficient modern CI/CD tools and processes. 
  • Agile transformation. Adopting DevOps introduces automation and agility into the entire app development, release, and update processes. It also accelerates time to market, improving return on investment and user experience. 
  • Containerization and microservices. Containers are the place where microservices live in agile and modern cloud environments in highly available Kubernetes clusters. With Kubernetes and microservices, organizations gain resiliency and app portability that contribute to freedom from potential vendor lock-in. Microservices are independent, but they work closely together to deliver the full functionality of applications.
