DevOps Automation and Orchestration Services

DevOps Automation Strategies

1. Systems Audit:

CMS IT will perform a System audit to identify repetitive activities within the continuous improvement and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline. These include builds, testing, configuration, deployment, operation, and monitoring. Identify the automation candidates with the following criteria,

Occur with medium to high frequency

Requires human resources to complete manually

Use time-sensitive steps

Impact multiple systems

Must have audit documentation for compliance

Result in bottlenecks on an ongoing basis

2. Cost benefit Analysis:

Once you’ve identified the processes most likely to benefit from automation, the next step as per is to perform a cost-benefit analysis for each one. This will calculate the net benefit for the organization in hours saved per year,

Automation time overhead = initial development hours +ongoing maintenance hours per year

Automation time savings = (hours to do task manually - hours to do task with automation) x number of times task is done per year

Net hours benefit per year = automation time savings - automation time overhead

3. Continuous Improvement KPIs.

CMS IT tracks the following continuous improvement KPIs.

Business disruption hours

This basic metric tracks how much downtime is experienced by customers and users as well as the business overall. This includes both planned and unplanned disruptions — both performance slowdowns and complete outages — in one or more affected applications.

Technical debt closed

This refers to reducing — or even eliminating — the negative feedback cycle of poorly written code leading to higher costs, reduced business responsiveness, lower revenue, and ultimately less money for future software development which circles back around to create even more poorly written code.

Mean time to discovery (MTTD)

The amount of time it takes after an issue occurs for a DevOps team to discover the source of the problem. This metric is critical to track the efficiency of both your overall incident management processes as well as the tools being used.

Mean time to recovery (MTTR)

The amount of time required to repair an inoperative system. Not only will this measure the time necessary to have a system back online, but granular incident reports will also help proactively anticipate future problems.

Mean time to failure (MTTF)

The amount of time system-critical components takes to fail. Like MTTR, knowing the MTTF of mission-critical systems will also help reduce downtime by predicting future failures.

Mean time between failures (MTBF)

A reliability metric, this helps measure how long a critical component or system will be available, and once you have established baseline values, you can work to increase MTBF over time.
