Sandhata Technologies Launches PopUp Mainframe

21st March 2022

The DevOps, Integration and digital transformation specialist, Sandhata Technologies, has launched its new product company, PopUp Mainframe.

 

PopUp Mainframe is a cutting-edge solution which finally removes the bottleneck of mainframe test environments by enabling clients to create mainframe environments on-demand, either on-prem or in the cloud.

 

Sandhata Technologies has taken the decision to separate its new product offering, PopUp Mainframe, from Sandhata’s services offering to ensure that PopUp’s software engineering team can focus fully on responding to client needs with the PopUp product roadmap. Sandhata Technologies will continue to offer its award winning consultancy services, specialising in innovative and enterprise-wide DevOps-centric service propositions.

Why is feedback fantastic?

So, you have a crack team delivering sterling work, who are highly skilled and hard working. But this team are not as productive as is hoped, and they frequently face production/service issues which take a lot of time to resolve. What gives?

Quite possibly, the team is delivering the wrong stuff (which does not improve the customer experience), or fire fighting issues blind because they don’t have the right information at the right time. Without regular feedback, projects can go off course, the wrong features can be built, and sometimes the wrong issue can be “fixed”!

DevOps In Regulated Industries

Does DevOps Work in Highly Regulated Industries?

DevOps is best suited to digital start-ups with minimal regulation and few restrictions, right?

Initially the DevOps movement stemmed from the agile, innovative, born-on-the-web companies who were able to change their way of working quickly. However, the principles and practices are completely transferrable to all organisation types. This includes those at the other end of the spectrum – where processes are very tightly controlled and regulation dictates a significant part of the business investment.

Drowning in technical debt

Are you drowning in technical debt?

Technical debt is the enemy of fast change – and of DevOps. It sometimes hides under the covers while new features are being delivered but, much like financial debt, it will never go away unless it is addressed directly.

At some point your technical debt will reach critical mass. This is when it starts to hinder every attempt to change, while forcing you to spend more time fire-fighting and managing the debt rather than delivering new features for the customer. This growing technical debt mountain will seriously affect your business ability.

What makes the agile team tick

We’ve all heard the cliché: Agile teams are self-organised and self-managed.

However, if it’s that simple, why are organisations not consistently churning out self-managed teams delivering solutions in a smooth manner?
