Our mission statement of ‘Build Future’ (building for the future, today) is embodied in the DevOps approach and our principles around IT Operations, Compliance, Security and Training. DevOps supports both in flight software builds and steady state operation through principles such as Continuous Delivery and Infrastructure as code to ensure a complete lifecycle of design, build and deployment is made routine and low risk.
cloudThing’s DevOps team is made up of a variety of backgrounds but all extensive experience in IT Management, code, scripting, build pipelines and cloud infrastructures. Various DevOps Engineers specialise in different technical stacks to cover all possible client requirements.
Often, when the initial software development project is complete, customers choose to keep a DevOps presence to ensure the solution is continuously improved in steady state and supported by experts who were involved in the development of the project. We operate flexible models and service hours to suit your needs.

This model does what it says on the tin – we hand over all documentation and support processes to your inhouse team. We don’t just cut and run, we work out a transition and training plan to ensure your team are capable and ready to take-on the service. Plus, we can still be around as 4th line support if needed.
