Kubernetes design and build
From discovery to delivery, we have the experience required to architect (and build) the platform to support your ambitions.
Service contract driven framework
We work with our clients to establish the frameworks to enable constant platform evolution.
We work with your development teams to get them on board, helping them adopt the tools and understand the new architecture.
Role and process evolution
We support and guide your teams in understanding and implementing the changes required to really adopt a CI/CD.
LiveWyer builds on real world expertise to create dynamic, containerised platforms that empower development teams and organisations to take their technology to the next level. Providing more than just technology, we work with leadership, development, and ops to embed the roles and processes required to maximise your investment.
A dynamic Kubernetes platform is never complete, it powers innovation through constant evolution.
Define your platform as a software product. Get your teams up to speed with the essential software development and product management practices that they will need to maintain it. Create a realistic, flexible road-map to guide the evolution of your platform.
The primary function of most dynamic platforms is to enable continuous delivery. Make sure that the platform itself uses the same process. Start with the capability to continuously improve your platform.
Add services according to a clear process, assessing needs, defining metrics and ensuring that you select the right tools. Abstract access to these services with simple API’s to enable concurrent versioning. Contracts work both ways, they define what can be expected of the service, and what needs to be done to use it.
Ensure that those using the platform understand what is expected of them, by establishing an effective pipeline for the creation, communication and evolution of standards. Platforms are, by definition, a set of standards that enable interoperability. Bake them in from the start.
A dynamic Kubernetes infrastructure is a software product. While the first release may be small, it constantly evolves, guided by a flexible, strategic roadmap – and user feedback. Every platform service provides clear contracts defining its interfaces and data standards. Automated and enforced processes enable low risk, constant change.
Dynamic platforms power continuous innovation through a combination of infrastructure, standards and process.
Work with all your development and operations teams to find a path to the CI/CD. Simply creating a platform is not enough. Building a development culture and process that harnesses the power of continuous deployment requires a clear and conscious strategy.
Get development teams on board from the start. Commit to the rapid adoption of the new tools, and prioritize any issues in these systems. Make sure that developers and operations understand each others' requirements.
Get developers up to speed with 12-factor design and micro-service architectures. Make sure that applications are built in a manner compatible with containers and Kubernetes. Begin to refactor monolithic software towards a micro-service model.
These new tools will break down the traditional boundaries between teams, requiring new roles and updated responsibilities. Micro-service architectures will automatically push teams to become smaller and more multi-disciplinary. Take the time to build support for the change.
Cloud native applications, running on an evolving infrastructure, are able to adapt to changes in their context. Automated tests and lightweight architectures make them quick and easy to update, and they share internal state data with the host platform to allow it to manage resources and scaling. Like the software they build, the development teams themselves are constantly updating their practices and adapting to changes.
