3 Ways to Engage Ansible Management
Our developers are experts in leveraging the power of Ansible, using Cookbooks, Recipes, and Knife to transform and manage infrastructure. They have a proven track record in implementing Ansible automation for a diverse range of industries, ensuring scalability, reliability, and efficiency.
Our Ansible management services include, but are not limited to:
Assessment and Planning
Often the initial consulting phase involves a meticulous process of analysis. This critical step is designed to thoroughly understand the existing IT infrastructure, workflows, and overarching business objectives. Through this assessment, ProDev consultants gain insights into potential bottlenecks, redundancies, and areas where automation can yield the maximum benefits. Subsequently, a detailed plan is crafted, outlining the specific steps for the implementation of Ansible automation. This plan serves as the roadmap for the entire automation journey, ensuring that the solution aligns seamlessly with the organization’s unique requirements and sets the stage for a successful and tailored Ansible implementation.
Implementation and Integration
Ansible’s strength lies in its flexibility, allowing consultants to translate a strategic plan into practical reality. Implementation includes writing playbooks, defining roles, and configuring Ansible for optimal performance. Ansible automation is then applied to execute these playbooks, enabling the efficient deployment of tasks ranging from software installations to configuration management across diverse IT environments. As a result, manual and time-consuming tasks become automated, allowing organizations to achieve greater operational efficiency, reduce errors, and adapt swiftly to the dynamic demands of the digital landscape.
Ongoing Enhancement and Maintenance
ProDev Ansible consultants remain available to offer continuous support and maintenance services, monitoring the automation setup, addressing issues promptly, and implementing updates to keep the system running smoothly.
How Outsourced Infrastructure
Management As Service Works
If you plan to harness Ansible for advanced infrastructure automation our team is ready.
Whether you need a single specialist or a full team, we offer flexible engagement models to meet your specific needs.
Ansible Staff Augmentation Services
Best when managing the project in-house and combining our resources with internal staff
Whether you’re looking to strictly hire developers for infrastructure management and/or need additional support, our staff augmentation services are designed to help you temporarily expand your team quickly and reliably. We’ll work with your project managers to get you Ansible support plus any Development, QA, or other talent needed to take your project to the finish line.
Ansible Software Development Outsourcing
Best if you need project management support in addition to staff augmentation services
You may have limited or potentially no internal resources to assist with your infrastructure management project. When you partner with us for outsourced development services, not only do you get access to a complete software development team, we’ll manage the entire project from start to finish.
Project Ideation and Product Design
Best if you’re not ready for development yet and need some help getting your project started
If you have an idea for a project that uses Ansible, but you need guidance getting it off the ground, let us support you with product ideation and design services. Once complete, you can take your infrastructure and get development launched, or you can get started right away with DevOps staff that’s already familiar with your project.
Our 5-Step Process
Regardless of the engagement model you’re interested in, every ProDev partnership follows a 5-Step Process
Request a discovery call and we’ll schedule time to talk through your project, your goals, and your staff augmentation needs.
The Master Services Agreement lays a foundation for the relationship and enables the candidate-screening process – it in no way obligates you to continue nor is there any payment due at this stage.
We will match candidates to your needs and present them to you – or if you like we can just make what we think is the best assignment and proceed.
Once the team is defined, one resource or several, we capture the team details and effort scope in an SOW. This simple and short document attaches to the MSA and we can add SOW’s downstream as needed.
Next up is a kickoff call and then the magic starts to happen. We absolutely do not simply throw bodies over the wall – we stay engaged closely with you as the work proceeds through regular communication and reporting. You get to see and test deliverables as they evolve.
Common Questions About Ansible Management
For clients looking to build their infrastructure management team over time, we are open to conversion conversations after a resource has been engaged for at least one year.
Good developers are busy developers, so it might take us up to 1-2 weeks to present candidates; that said, we work in a dynamic landscape and sometimes we can deploy within a few days.
Our developers remotely telecommute, but typically they are willing to meet in person to launch an engagement and to participate in periodic on-site reviews.
Yes, our development consultants and engineers will adopt a schedule friendly to your teams and offices.
In addition to infrastructure management, we can staff for Software Development Services, UI/UX, Project Management, DevOps, and QA positions.
