Professional IT Outstaffing Services: How we build an outsourced DevOps team

In following the hot trends, many IT Svit customers expect to hire someone like Cloud Architect or AWS Terraform provider. They end up getting their tasks solved by a DevOps support engineer or outsourced DevOps team.

The DevOps methodology of providing IT products and services is quite complex, to begin with. Even the IT-related professionals cannot form a holistic opinion on what is DevOps and how it relates to Agile. Many sources describe DevOps as the process of merging the developers with the Operations teams and sharing the tools, tasks, and responsibility.

Many other software professionals are sure DevOps is all about implementing the automated code testing, continuous integration of feedback into new features and continuous delivery of new code releases to the end users. As usual, the truth is somewhere in the middle, yet the lack of a clear definition leads to the certain incoherence of terms.

“As everyone defines DevOps methodology differently, the businesses often do not know what specialists they really need.”

Many IT Svit customers search for specific professionals like AWS Cloud Administrator, Cloud Automation Engineer, Cloud Migration Engineer, Cloud AWS Consultant, etc. They are under an impression that the best person to configure the cloud infrastructure correctly would be the AWS certified solutions architect, as he is bound to have the necessary (and proven) skills.

As a matter of fact, this opinion is true. The main point is, all the job titles listed above require the set of skills any decent DevOps system administrator must possess. To say even more, IT Svit customers find out quite soon they do not actually need someone special to deal with the task at hand. They need an all-around capable DevOps support team — exactly the thing a reputable MSP located in the list of top 20 MSP’s worldwide (by Clutch) can provide. This is why IT outstaffing services are quite common for IT Svit.

  • Cloud computing specialist
