Why Rubicon Red
It is our unique Product Centric, Cloud Native, DevOps-based approach – our digital operating model, that sets us apart. Our digital operating model enables our customers to innovate quickly and continuously evolve their ideas into compelling digital experiences, delivering outcomes quickly, in a low risk and cost-effective way.
- Product-Centric agile development: Our Product-Centric approach recognises that digital experience is fundamental for successful products and services, and these must continually evolve to remain competitive.
- Cloud Native: A Cloud Native approach means designing applications specifically to run on and take full advantage of the cloud.
- DevOps: DevOps focuses on the end to end process of developing new code and getting that quickly and safely into production, this requires both cultural and process changes, including automation of the many manual processes.
A Product-Centric approach is built on many of the principals of Agile, but the overall operating and governance model recognizes that the solution is never finished (at least not until the corresponding product or service is retired), but will be continually improved based on the overall product roadmap and feedback from customers.
A core focus of this approach is to deliver measurable value sooner, delivering a minimal viable product and then iterating. The key here is to frequently deliver small releases of new functionality, get feedback from the customer and iterate to improve.
This approach delivers results faster and also encourages far greater collaboration with customers and business stakeholders, meaning the team can respond significantly faster to unclear or changing requirements and changing priorities.
Cloud Native, the second wave of cloud adoption, is about designing applications specifically built to run in and take advantage of the cloud. Cloud native builds on the latest best practice in application development, such as Twelve-Factor app, which defines how to build modern day applications that are delivered as a service via the web (i.e. Software as a Service).
The Cloud Native approach is highly synergistic with a Product-Centric and DevOps methodology. With applications built in a way that facilitates rapid delivery and on-going change. This is key to helping organisations achieve greater agility needed to respond to changing market conditions and business requirements.
On the operations side, Cloud Native applications have significant benefits over traditional applications, providing improved availability, scalability and performance at a far more affordable price. Cloud Native applications are inherently designed to scale almost infinitely and are able to leverage cloud infrastructure across multiple regions to deliver extreme availability.
DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization's ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes.
Under a product-centric approach, the software delivery lifecycle is greatly compressed and repeated far more frequently - releases can be made weekly, daily or even more often. This means that activities such as testing, production deployments now need to be performed far more frequently. DevOps has evolved as a set of practices, culture and approach aimed at optimizing the end to end process from writing a line of code to having successfully running in production.
The process of releasing/deploying software must be efficient, repeatable, and reliable - achieved by automating each step in the software delivery process including building, deployment and testing. Rubicon Red's innovative set of DevOps tools and best practices are a critical enabler for our product-centric approach to deliver your solutions faster with reduced risk and cost.
