Enabling DevOps in a Bank

The Objective

Client:

Pension Savings Bank in Jakarta, Indonesia

One of the leading Business Banks in Indonesia wanted to build a complete Digital Banking Platform. For that, they needed to enable Agile and DevOps practices among their IT teams.  So they approached  Greyamp Consulting Services PVT to help them in their journey of Digital Transformation. Greyamp reached out to Cloudkata® for DevOps Enablement of the Bank IT Group.

The objective was to demonstrate how cross functional teams can inculcate DevOps and agile practices to deliver business-critical software and based on the lessons learned, spread the culture across the IT group.

The Challenge

Timeline:

June (2017 - 2018)

  • Traditional bank IT - Ops and Dev sitting on different floors of buildings. 

  • No real world experience of DevOps or Continuous Delivery.

  • Manual steps for system setup, every server was a work of art. No Version Control for system-level changes. Despite using some of the latest tools and tech,  it would take days to do even a minor update or hotfix. This made the whole platform highly unstable.

The Initiative

Practices:

CICD, Config Management, Platform as Code

  • Playing multiple technical and business roles all at a time.

  • Mentoring and Pairing with a complete fresh bunch of developers and sysadmins while implementing the solution.

  • Coordinating multiple business and ops teams spread across different Banking Domains.

  • Identify talent in the Bank who can contribute to the community.

  • DevOps Academy Training for graduates hired by The Bank.

The Impact

Result:

From Ops and Devs

To

DevOps

  • 10 DevOps Engineers handling the complete PaaS that supports 20+ Digital Banking Products.

  • Cross-Functional Team - Everyone knows everything. No Silos of Devs or Ops.

  • Core Group that works as the DevOps enablers for the rest of the Bank IT
