Copado announced its Winter 21 release, providing end-to-end DevOps value stream management platform for Salesforce.
N4Stack, a division of Node4, announced the launch of Azure Service Tiles.
This new product suite will allow customers that are both new to Azure, and those that have already begun their move to the cloud, to have a smooth transition and a best practice approach to adopting Azure in-line with the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF).
Node4’s Azure Service Tiles are designed to overcome the challenges customers face when adopting Azure, making the process easier and more cohesive. The Azure Service Tiles suite is made up of 12 different services – ranging from consultancy through to managed services – and is aligned with the CAF to ensure that customers are adopting best practices. This process has seen the development of new capabilities such as governance design, modernization consulting, a DevOps Site Reliability Engineering managed service and a range of automated templates. Because of this, it is one of the only end-to-end service portfolios globally that can aid in the adoption of Azure CAF, no matter how far along the process a customer is.
The product suite looks after the customer from early strategy planning, assists with the migration and provides in-life management, all while considering governance and compliance. New customers can get access to a range of DevOps templates that provide customers with a rapid build and achieves a high level of maturity within a week. Additionally, customers who are already operating in Azure but have not implemented services in-line with best practices are also able to do a gap analysis and use the services to move back into the Microsoft assured framework model.
“It’s important that we listen to customer demand and consistently update our portfolio of services,” commented Andrew Slater, Director at N4Stack. “With the current global challenges, customers are having to scale projects quickly in Azure both up to address demand peaks and down to save costs. Azure Service Tiles provides approaches with baked-in governance and automation to ensure that no matter what the challenge they can take action quickly without compromises and stay in control, supported by a team of experts.”
