Navigating the DevOps lifecycle around the Guidewire Ecosystem
As an Insurer do you struggle with IT Infrastructure challenges delaying your time to market every time a new LOB (Line Of Business) is launched?
Navigating the DevOps lifecycle around a Guidewire Ecosystem can be complex, time-consuming and unpredictable resulting in high cost of quality as you move towards the stabilization phase. Immature DevOps processes can lead to implementation challenges even after the “Go-live” stage. Because of the complex and time-consuming steps, incumbent IT teams often compromise with only 1 or 2 releases per month.
For applications hosted on public or private cloud infrastructure, Cloud deployment process with Secure DevOps requires additional sets of checklists to be validated. Provisioning new environment on demand requires code changes and environment variables riddled throughout the code. Internal business users lack confidence in the IT team because they want new and parallel environments to test more functionality.
This webinar will talk about various challenges in the DevOps cycle like Long infra build time, hard to update environment, inconsistent OS, Database and APP Server settings. Hexaware will also showcase case studies highlighting actual solutions that have been developed and implemented for several large and small Insurance companies.
We will also talk about an Optimal technical configuration based Guidewire approved platform for developing, shipping, and running applications using containers with kernel isolation, as well as a script-less enablement of automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
Trying to orchestrate your DevOps pipeline and related toolchain with scripts costs valuable time writing, testing and maintaining customized scripts that have to be adapted for different applications and environment.
The webinar will include a demonstration of how to achieve Productivity, Predictability & Quality through data based collaboration and how to track performance metrics like error rate, delays, security, compliance and continuous deployment in real-time, resulting in better cost-efficiency.
Be a part of this webinar and learn how to build a new DevOps Target operating model for your future IT, QA and Support organization. Learn how to leverage the power of technology to provision storage, computing power and memory on-demand.
