In the ever daunting task of changing the attitude and culture of Information Systems Engineers and Specialists, the highly talented individuals at Cevo have proved invaluable in providing Agile Coaching and Enablement to our Teams within Infrastructure Services. In 4 months, our Operational teams have transitioned from siloed ticket-churning engineers into a company of cross-functional squads.
The challenging nature of change is a difficult concept to actualise, especially in an environment that has remained fairly static for the past decade. Without the guidance, patience, expertise and professionalism delivered by Cevo we would not have succeeded in our transition to a customer focused organisation.
We’ve been through many different Agile delivery companies; few have stood the test of time. Both Scott and Jess have displayed a level of professionalism that will no doubt leave a mark on every engineer they have worked with.
Here at ME, we’ve been lucky enough to have a Cevo injection across a number of projects recently. In our online banking space, Steve and Jason working with us have been passionate champions of automation and strong agile practices.
I’ve been so impressed and grateful for the enthusiasm and ‘one-team’ mentality both display – they have thrown themselves into our teams, our culture and the work seamlessly like no other contractors I’ve seen. Their initiative and eagerness to go above and beyond, whilst still learning and performing some of the legacy tasks we need has been invaluable.
Cevo have been an invaluable asset to the Digital team at ME Bank. Immersing themselves in the strategy and objectives of the team, they have helped us speed up delivery through automation and improved our communication by strengthening our Agile capabilities. Always looking to help innovate and improve outcomes – and always with a smile.
At MYOB we engaged Cevo to help us bootstrap our distributed tracing platform and also help us with our systems observability strategy.
Guillaume from Cevo has done an amazing job. From helping to build out the core platform to on-boarding development teams, Guillaume has done great work with strong technical knowledge in his humble but confident style.
At every point Guillaume has produced excellent documentation and ensured that his work has been understood and handed over. I have no hesitations in recommending Cevo and Guillaume for future projects.
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.
We had a Cevo consultant work with us over a short period to help close out a busy year, and to help uplift some practices for our Scrum teams.
During the limited time onboard, Cevo contributed to improving our automated testing practices, and ran technical workshops to uplift sprint planning, as well as technical debt discovery. They also delivered a new authorisation service for our API layer – this doubled as hands-on training for our team on best practice code and configuration structures. Great engagement, and we are already looking forward to working with Cevo again in the future.
I would like to formally thank Cevo for working with us on the Waste Tracker Project at EPA. The enthusiasm, expertise, and warmth Cevo bought to the project was perfect. I am very happy with the result.
Both of the team members slotted in on the first day like if they were part of the team. They were awesome at consolidating the wealth of information they collected into usable specifications. They also picked up on other stakeholder information outside their scope but related to our work.
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 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.
