According to ITIL best practices
In order to ensure that IT development, support and PMR management is as seamless as possible, we invariably apply ITIL best practices. The Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) contains numerous recommendations. Below is a summary of those ITIL best practices that we deem a priority at FlowFactor.
An optimal CI/CD pipeline
Fully concentrating on continuous, automated testing and automatic alerts enables us to rapidly detect any potential errors. Managed service provider FlowFactor can instantly adjust the code and upload it into the central system at regular intervals. Recurring errors are consequently instantly prevented and the time required for test rounds is minimised.
Additionally automating the release processes, enables us to deploy new or customised applications over the entire platform at the touch of a button. And changes are bundled into small batches to simplify troubleshooting in the event of errors. The result? Updates can be released more frequently and the customer feedback procedure is substantially shortened.
Continuous deployment enables us to go one step further than continuous delivery. Indeed, changes are instantly available to end users and customers. And they needn’t install updates in order to receive these. Your customers benefit from continuous optimisation and enjoy enhanced quality on a daily basis.
We don’t believe in purely reactive incident management. Instead we adopt a preventive approach and actively examine how to structurally prevent recurring incidents according to ITIL Problem Management Report guidelines. This creates a more stable IT infrastructure and results in a future reduction in support tickets.
- error and bug identification and logging via monitoring and automated alert management
- root cause analysis in order to segment known errors per common cause
- cost-benefit analysis: resolve and prevent known errors or determine whether workarounds are feasible
Secure, stable and reliable cloud environments are our number one priority. Naturally, we also ensure that these are GDPR compliant and boast maximum data protection.
