ATLANTA (PRWEB) March 27, 2018
Orasi Software, an Atlanta-based software reseller and professional services company, today announced it has formed a partnership with Chef, an innovator in cloud native operations and one of the founders of the DevOps movement. Chef offers a suite of continuous automation solutions for building, deploying and managing infrastructure, compliance and applications.
“Accelerating time-to-value in software development is a core goal for enterprises—and tools such as Chef Automate are pivotal to that effort,” said Kimberly Martin, Vice President – Partner & Business Development. “Through Chef’s automation tools, security and DevOps teams can collaboratively gain the velocity and quality they need to innovate in a competitive market.”
“Combining Orasi’s strategic and consultative services approach with the full power of the Chef Automate platform will help customers accelerate their DevOps transformations,” added Jason Krech, Chef’s Head of SI Partners.
Chef Automate is comprised of Chef for infrastructure automation, InSpec, a framework for managing compliance as code, and Habitat, a simple way to build, deploy, and manage cloud native applications. Orasi will be incorporating Chef Automate into the solutions it develops and recommends for Orasi’s DevOps clients.
“It’s an exciting time for Orasi, because we are getting the opportunity to help our clients develop and enhance their DevOps strategies while also leading the implementation of technologies and best-practice processes to drive improvements in their DevOps pipelines,” said Orasi Advanced Technology Solution (ATS) Managing Director Terry Brennan. “To optimize cycle times, we have adapted principles established in other industries focused on continuous flow, such as manufacturing. Incorporating a Lean mindset and leveraging concepts—such as value streams, Kaizen, and elimination of waste—are very applicable to the goal of improving flow in the DevOps world.”
As Agile-based software delivery teams have matured over the past decade, the emphasis to deliver software features to market in shorter timelines has put increased pressure on firms to streamline their approaches.
“We are working with clients today to create seamless and integrated pipelines, from code commit to production deployment,” said Orasi ATS Managing Director Richard White. “With the innovation in tools and the cloud, when software undergoes updates or changes, we can establish an automated pipeline that dynamically provisions the infrastructure and then loads the application components, test cases and other components. We are then able to execute, validate, and, if appropriate, recycle the entire stack.”
Orasi considers the Chef suite of tools to be key components in accelerating delivery while also increasing quality. Those solutions, paired with Orasi’s infinitely flexible, scalable cloud testing resources, provide the foundation for Orasi to deliver innovative solutions for its clients.
Chef is the leader in Continuous Automation software, an innovator in cloud native operations and one of the founders of the DevOps movement. Chef works with more than a thousand of the most innovative companies around the world to deliver their vision of digital transformation, providing the practices and platform to deliver software at speed.
