Supporting the next generation of IT professionals

At Sandhata, we know how important it is to provide opportunities support for students and college graduates and support them to upskill. We have an active graduate intake programme, and aim to provide our graduate joiners with wide exposure to different industries, different technologies and challenges, to kick-start their careers.

This year we have taken on 4 intern students to work on a new mobile app for our employees. They themselves came up with the mobile app idea based on the existing web app.

 

The Internship Project

The scope of the project was to design, build, and deliver a mobile app for Sandhata employees to record their timesheets. We wanted to overhaul the process for timesheet management and take advantage of new technologies available to create a high quality, simple to use service.

What a difference a dashboard makes

Here at Sandhata the drive to experiment, learn, innovate, and solve problems cuts through everything we do. This is what we spend a large percentage of our time doing as consultants at Sandhata. It is an integral part of the Sandhata culture.

 

Our DevOps Innovation Platform is just one of the ways we do this. It gives our consultants opportunities to experiment and innovate with the latest technologies, keeping them at the top of their game, and helps to maintain Sandhata’s place at the forefront of the industry.

Overcome challenges move mountains

Client story – overcoming tough challenges!

Using our skill and wide-ranging experience to deliver automation in a Tier-1 client.

 

One of our most recent projects was delivering lifecycle automation for a Tier-1 client.  As with any and every “DevOps project”, there were a number of challenges we overcame when delivering the project. In this blog, I will talk about some of the hurdles we came up against and how we managed to work through them, as well as some of the project successes.

We see a few common challenges in some form or the other at every client we work with. The way we work through these challenges and overcome hurdles is where our skill and wide-ranging experience in delivering this type of DevOps project really come into their own.

Conway’s Law – What can it teach us about DevOps?

I first heard about Conway’s Law from reading the DevOps Handbook (an excellent read, by the way, if you want to dive head first into DevOps). I was intrigued by how this idea came from slightly left-field, yet seemed to have big implications for businesses on their journey to increased efficiency.

In this blog, you will learn what Conway’s Law is and how it is relevant for your business – whether you are in the middle of a DevOps transformation or just taking your first steps.

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.

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? In reality, there are plenty of dynamics involved in enabling agile teams, and there are multiple factors that play a big part in nurturing self-managed teams.

What DevOps is NOT

What DevOps is NOT

It seems like DevOps is absolutely everywhere now. Pretty much every company is talking about it – even if they are not ready to explore it yet. In this DevOps adoption frenzy, it is inevitable that some of the core principles of DevOps (what it is, how it adds value to your business, etc.) will get watered down. When DevOps is mandated, the word itself becomes overused and the core message can get lost.
