IT and consulting firm Atos has entered an alliance with CloudBees and Google to help customers modernise their application cloud development practices on Google Cloud. The solution will look to supply a holistic service which can provide clients with a managed platform for the software delivery process.
As today’s IT industry continues to expand thanks to innovative new technologies including cloud-based solutions and Blockchain technology, making digital transformation indispensable for companies in every industry, development and operations (DevOps) has come to be seen as indispensable in bettering communication and collaboration between product managements, software development and IT operations. As a result, DevOps toolsets already constitute a multi-billion dollar industry.
As businesses look to get the greatest levels of agility and scalability from DevOps, while reducing IT spend to build and automate development pipelines, a collaborative effort from technology leaders has yielded a service aimed at helping clients do just that. Designed for enterprise customers, Atos and CloudBees have created a solution to bring a unique set of capabilities to organisations in their digital transformation journey.
Based on the Google Cloud Platform, Application Transformation Services helps teams modernise applications, as well as the way they are deployed and managed. The solution will include a number of application and data services, including Atos’ Application Transformation Services, CloudBees Core, and Google’s Cloud platform, and through this new partnership, Atos plans to build a DevOps platform on Google Cloud that’s powered by CloudBees Core.
Michael Kollar, Senior Vice President for cloud engineering at Atos, said of the move, “As a global digital transformation leader, we look forward to working closely with CloudBees and Google Cloud, two acknowledged leaders in their respective fields. We ultimately help organisations better harness the power of DevOps and transform application development methods from a traditional approach to a model that enables hybrid / multi-cloud development.”
“As forward-looking organisations continue to focus on digital transformation initiatives, they are increasingly seeking assistance from trusted service providers for the management of their DevOps operations,” added Francois Dechery, Chief Strategy Officer at CloudBees. “By combining the power of a large managed service provider and a leading global cloud provider with our CI/CD solution, we’re helping customers to more effectively and efficiently modernise.”
Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President of Google Cloud’s global partner ecosystem, concluded, “We’re proud to work with both Atos and CloudBees to help enterprises modernize through DevOps. Our work together makes the best of CloudBees available on GCP, which customers can deploy seamlessly across on-prem and public cloud platforms. This collaboration is a great example of how we’re able to create new value for customers through our partner ecosystem.”
