Before

  • Process - manual; complex
  • Tools - don’t scale; too many; legacy; custom; homegrown; outages
  • People - functional silos; misaligned priorities; working on wrong things; fighting fires; dissatisfied
  • Integrations - brittle; complicated

Negative Consequences

  • Lower productivity; more rework; slower cycle time
  • Toolchain is expensive to license and support
  • Poor developer experience; wasted talent; high turnover in engineering
  • Product launch delays

After

  • Process - simplified, predictable SDLC process; less ramp time; reduced context switching
  • Tools - scale with business and developer needs; more complete coverage; no customization
  • People - teams are more productive and collaborative
  • Integrations - fewer; less complicated

Positive Business Outcomes

  • Reduce product development and delivery costs
  • Elimination of bottlenecks leads to agility and faster time to market
  • Happy developers - attract and retain top talent
  • Move engineers from integration and maintenance to value-add activities

Required Capabilities

  • Consistent and efficient developer experience across the development lifecycle
  • Centralized reporting and visibility across the development lifecycle
  • At point of code change, developers can assess and resolve security, compliance and code quality issues
  • Solution that automatically scales to match performance and cost demands of the organization
  • Public cloud independent; develop in one place, deploy anywhere
  • SaaS and/or self-managed

Metrics

  • TCO (license, FTEs and compute costs) of toolchain
  • Cycle time (time per stage and waiting time); throughput per developer
    Deployment frequency
  • Change failure rate
  • MTTR (mean time to resolution)
  • Developer turnover; employee SAT

How We Do It

  1. Complete DevOps Platform - GitLab is a complete DevOps platform, delivered as a single application, fundamentally changing the way development, security and ops teams collaborate. The single platform delivers capabilities across DevSecOps SDLC.
    Start with GitLab just on the use case that you need to improve
    Continue using tools you love
    Begin evolution to a single end-to-end experience for all of DevSecOps
    Collaboration, visibility, control and reporting from idea to production
    Improving cycle time from weeks to minutes greatly reduces development costs and time to market while increasing developer productivity and the ability to attract and retain developer talent

  2. Faster cycle time while also improving quality and security:
    Single application
    Rapidly innovating platform
    High performance with easy scaling and management
    Increased developer productivity

Better

  • Single Application
  • Minimize friction and reduce handoff time between teams by collaborating at the point of code change
  • One interface and one login
  • One permissions model
  • One data store
  • Built for Multi-Cloud
  • Easily deploy anywhere, especially with Kubernetes
  • GitLab CD is seamlessly included in CI, enabling multi-cloud deployments and progressive delivery with easy automation
    Same Experience on Flexible GitLab Hosting Options
    Identical performance and flexibility on SaaS or self-managed (on prem or any cloud service)
  • Deploy GitLab to any cloud service
  • High Performance with Easy Scaling and Management:
  • Highly scalable architecture, powered by extensible YAML instead of plug-ins
  • Templated YAML file architecture enables self-service, flexible CI that doesn't require additional resources
  • Runners scale based on demand through auto-scaling and parallelizing pipelines
  • Distributed - execute runners on any operating system (Mac, Linux, or Windows) or in the cloud at the same time

Discovery Questions

  1. Opening Questions (To Establish Credibility and Provide Relevant Insights)
    Thank you for chatting today. I am curious as to why you took this meeting.
    The most common reason organizations like yours contact us is to consolidate their DevOps toolchain to drive operational efficiencies. However, as we get deeper into those discussions, we often find that organizations have a digital transformation initiative. To meet their goals, they need to deliver better products faster and/or they want to ensure their code is tested to reduce risk. Which of these resonates with you? Why?
  2. Value Driver-Specific Questions (Increase Operational Efficiencies)
    Before/Negative Consequences
    Walk me through how you currently manage your application development and delivery process. What tools do you utilize and how satisfied are you with those tools?
    Describe how you would characterize the developer workflow for this process. How many different tools and screens (browser windows) does the developer have to navigate to in order to do their work? How does this affect their productivity and job satisfaction?
    What integrations does your team manage across the various DevOps tools? What complexities or challenges do these integrations present? Describe the level of effort that is required to maintain these integrations.
    How do you keep your teams up-to-date with the various tools they use? How much do you currently invest in licensing, managing, maintaining and training your teams?
    Describe the unforeseen delays you are experiencing as you build and deploy your applications. How do you currently mitigate these delays?
    Describe the separate toolchains your organization has in place to develop and deliver your software. What’s the impact on developer experience and productivity?

After/Positive Business Outcomes

  • In an ideal world, how would you like your development, security and operations teams to collaborate? Describe the current initiatives to address this.
  • If you were to streamline your toolchain, where would you start? What would you want to remain the same?
  • In what ways could streamlining your development toolchain impact your ability to deliver projects on time and on budget?
  • What percentage of your team’s time is spent on innovation versus on keeping the integrations operational? If most of those people could work on innovation, how would that impact the business?
  • Describe how your developer productivity could change if they only had one application to learn and use.

Required Capabilities/Metrics

  • What do you need to improve the alignment between your development, security and operations teams throughout the DevOps lifecycle?
  • What environments/clouds are you currently deploying to? Describe how your tool selection enables you to be efficient in supporting your cloud strategy.
  • What capabilities would enable BOTH organizational efficiencies AND developer satisfaction?
  • How would your team benefit if developers had full team visibility on their projects and respective code?
  • Walk me through how you currently track and measure developer satisfaction, productivity and turnover. Where do you think your company would stand in the rankings of ‘great place to be a developer’?

How many engineers do you have maintaining your CI/CD pipeline and related integrations? What is your process for updating and maintaining your environment? What plug-ins do you use? Describe the impact of these pipeline issues on customers and revenue. If you could change anything about your current CI/CD environment, what would that be and why?
  • Trap = Usability. Describe your current onboarding process. How long does it take for you to get a developer up to speed? If your developers could start contributing to code on day one, how would that affect your business?
  • Trap = Auditability. Walk me through your auditing process. How difficult is it for you to pull together audit evidence and proof points across multiple tools? How could you benefit from a faster process?
  • Trap = Application Security. Describe the level of visibility developers have to see vulnerabilities at the point of code commit. How do vulnerabilities found make it back to the accountable developer to resolve? How long does that take?
