We engaged the Cevo team to kick off our move to DevOps, as a fundamental part of ACMI’s major renewal project. Cevo’s consultants led organisational analysis and inception workshops to help identify the quickest path to value for ACMI through technology change and by upskilling our teams. As a result, we are immediately benefitting from a stronger DevOps mindset, and now have a clear roadmap to follow to get us to where we need.
We’ve engaged Cevo several times to complete discreet, challenging pieces of work and helped us when we needed it. Each member of the team has been, professional, knowledgeable, collaborative and a pleasure to work with.
It was a pleasure working with Stan Yudin from Cevo. He delivered a solution ahead of schedule and made one of our vendors very happy.
I would not hesitate to recommend Cevo and their services.
Cevo were engaged to help kick us off on our DevOps journey and address two of our most pressing needs in reducing the time taken to deploy changes and improve the consistency of our deployments. The Cevo consultants were first rate and easily integrated with our team. Together with our development team they forged a realistic plan and assessed & spiked options to validate approaches, this led to a defined path for us going forward. We have now implemented these changes to the way our team develops and releases product, and we’re on our way to being able to deploy our products with greater confidence and certainty.
Cevo were engaged to build a set of automated controls that would give both us and APRA the confidence that we were building a cloud environment that met our compliance obligations. The Cevo team came up with an innovative approach to this, making use of native AWS services to implement the controls. The controls are individually testable and can be versioned in source control. They could also easily be deployed consistently across the 40+ AWS accounts that we have with no additional work, meaning that all new workloads that come onto the platform are immediately subject to the same standards.
Cevo have accelerated our agile maturity. They have helped us build in quality early through collaborative testing practices. With creative problem solving and skilled prioritisation Cevo’s technologists have enabled us to identify and define the valuable work, and deliver with speed and confidence. Their multi-skilled consultants were able to provide expertise in Agile Coaching, Business Analysis, Iteration Management & Testing. Their capabilities enabled us to adopt a lean agile approach which was key to us rapidly delivering business functionality to our customers.
As a startup in a challenging domain, reducing time-to-market and getting fast feedback from our customers was paramount to our success. Cevo have contributed significantly in setting us up to be able learn, adapt and pivot quickly. They were instrumental in arming the team with the right skills, tools and practices to allow us to confidently and easily release production changes early and often. Their strong AWS expertise meant that we were able to quickly launch a secure, scalable platform that allowed us to quickly prove our business model.
Melissa and Simon have that secret ingredient to great consulting practices, they truly care about the tangible business outcome and are extremely passionate in living up to this value. It is not enough to be professional, polite, intelligent or manage stakeholders well. In addition, one truly has to care about the client’s interest before one’s personal interest to be a really great consultant. Both Melissa and Simon have this ingredient in abundance hence why they are so valuable to irexchange.
The Cevo consultants utilised their expertise and experience to accelerate our transformation into a high-performing, autonomous devops capability. Their coaching and support to upskill our teams also allowed us to implement the agile principles with minimal disruption to our customer services.
We needed a lot of help to start the move into devops and the Cevo team have delivered over and above our expectations. They have ‘jumpstarted’ us on the devops journey and we now have a proven process for CD.
Cevo assisted us in migrating our critical Student Administration applications to AWS whilst educating the team on the concepts and tools used in a cloud environment.
Our applications are now taking advantage of the native abilities of the Cloud such as self-healing and autoscaling infrastructure. Using a CI/CD pipeline allows us to deploy changes into Production within minutes rather than hours because handover between our developers and operations staff has been eliminated.
Cevo provided an invaluable service augmenting our existing capabilities with little training allowing us to meet our tight deadlines.
Cevo helped us greatly in working with us to develop an impactful observability strategy for our platform. Colin Panisset provided expert guidance and support throughout the process, enabling us to form a high-performing team rapidly to own and implement the strategy. We look forward to improving our insights, stability, performance and maintainability based on Colin’s work
Cevo engineers did a great job integrating their services into our IT team recently and help us manage our AWS costs more efficiently. Cevo helped us introduce more efficient tagging and reporting capabilities that have unlocked internal back charges, termination of unclaimed resources via an elegant event driven implementation, and the foundations for saving recommendations. Our target is to achieve at least 15% savings through this implementation in this financial year.
Stan Yudin from Cevo has been exceptional. He delivered way ahead of original estimate and has really helped remove some key challenges on a major project. Thanks Stan!
Thanks to the Baymax team (Nikita, Owen and Amy) who provided an on demand version of one of Tabcorp’s legacy Host systems. With a very well planned roadmap on how they would achieve this, they were able to provide the Rubix team a version of Host which was hosted in AWS and allowed the Rubix team to start work earlier on a key business initiative. The ability for the team to use multiple versions on the Host at once allowed each developer to have a local environment to use and also create an integration environment for the scrum team to use that would not impact our primary test environment. The Baymax team have been very helpful and open to suggestions to improve the solution. We are now currently working on replacing a our Primary Host in our test environment with this solution allowing us to decommission up to 11 physical servers in our primary environment.
Cevo have provided us with outstanding engineers who did a great job assisting the project team on our first dockerised platform for Wagering technology. A special thanks to James Strain for his assistance!!
Cevo have been invaluable in accelerating the adoption of CI/CD practices within Tabcorp, and in helping us improve our test automation capabilities. Their ability to engage at multiple levels of the business, identify the work of greatest value and execute on it has really helped us to deliver great results within our organisation and to our customers
Cevo were great. They listened to the goals of our project, what the team needed and they provided great engineers who were exactly what we required. We’ve been running iterative development for years and needed seasoned agile developers who could blend into the team and immediately contribute in the next sprint. That’s who we got. Full-stack experience, and capable from the front end end UI down to automation of AWS infrastructure commissioning. They were a perfect addition to our team and meant we could get the project delivered much more quickly.
Our developers could have gone through self-training to learn the AWS framework which would have taken a few weeks, however the methodology that Cevo took us through in the 3 days allowed our solution to be deployed to AWS’s infrastructure in time for client testing. During the 3 days with Cevo our team also gained enough knowledge to maintain and further solidify the solution through Continuous Integration … Without Cevo’s assistance we would have spent almost three weeks getting up to speed with AWS.
