Container Solutions Launches Subsidiary: Devopsense
June 22, 2016

Following the successful release of minimesos, Container Solutions continues its game plan to support developers of microservice applications with the announcement of a new subsidiary, Devopsense. Led by DevOps expert Mark Heistek, Devopsense is focused on helping enterprises implement the processes needed to shift from legacy software development models to agile methods, including DevOps.

Devopsense provides the training and services enterprises need to successfully harness DevOps as a self-organizing force that becomes part of a company’s product development culture. Parent company Container Solutions focuses on engineering services and product development, while Devopsense is structured to focus on consulting with clients to help them embrace the concepts of DevOps, including automation and rapid deployment cycles.

Devopsense helps clients organize for DevOps workflows, including new skills, methodologies and application architectures. The team applies first-hand experience to address the issues developers will face. An example includes real-world management of continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) processes so that software delivery and infrastructure provisioning are separate processes, increasing both the speed and control of the DevOps process overall.

The company works closely with clients to embed DevOps philosophies throughout the organization. Start-ups looking for engineering consultation, medium-sized companies looking for implementation and application architecture support, and large enterprises looking for complete transformational services can all work with Devopsense. Container Solutions and Devopsense companies will work closely on engineering support.

“Change can be tough. And that’s where we come in. DevOps is more than just a cultural shift, and it’s more than just a way to build software better and faster,” said Mark Heistek, Head of Delivery and Creator of Devopsense. “DevOps is a new way of thinking about how software can add value and sustainable differentiation. Our mission is to advise, coach and guide clients to a DevOps state of mind, learning how to grow, innovate, automate and thrive on what they do best: make great products and serve customers.”

Heistek comes to Devopsense from ING Bank, where he helped lead DevOps transformation and was product owner of the TIBCO continuous deployment process and the Continuous Delivery on-boarding team. He also was a continuous delivery coach and trainer, helping software development teams within the organization make transition to DevOps.

“Mark has first-hand experience leading large organizations through the DevOps transformation,” said Jamie Dobson, CEO of Container Solutions. “That experience gave birth to Devopsense. Together with Container Solutions, Devopsense delivers the right combination of engineering and consulting experience to clients, enabling successful transformations. Working together, we can test new tools with real clients, bringing new technologies to market while helping clients succeed at DevOps.”

Devopsense is the latest addition to the Container Solutions constellation of companies, which includes Container Solutions offices in London, Amsterdam and Zurich, and the design agency, Remember to Play, which specializes in design for distributed systems and programmable infrastructure. Together, these companies can service a whole range of needs for clients, including application design, systems integration, implementation, transformation, security audits and even interim corporate management services.
