DevOps is a philosophy or mindset where all teams – especially development, testing and operations teams – work together to develop and provide software, and focus on maintaining steady operations. The idea is the organization provides better-quality software faster so it can attain its business targets sooner. On its journey to becoming an agile company, PostFinance has accumulated a great deal of DevOps expertise over the years, and has gained valuable insights by experimenting. This expertise is continuously developed, expanded and regularly shared on a practical basis.
DevOps: how EnTe get delivery teams off the ground
“EnTe” is in fact short for “enabling teams”. At PostFinance, they are used in the context of DevOps – mindset that plays a vital role in the road to becoming an agile company. You can find out more at Swiss Testing Day 2020.
PostFinance at the Swiss Testing Day
After all, sharing expertise is also a major reason why PostFinance always attends the Swiss Testing Day, the parallel conference to DevOps Fusion. This year, its theme will be “How our EnTe get delivery teams off the ground”. In his opening presentation, Roger Reisch, IT project manager with PostFinance, explains that the conventional building blocks of training, consultation and coaching just aren’t enough anymore for a number of teams as they make the transition to becoming agile teams. He also outlines how PostFinance is addressing this, e.g. by setting up an enabling team (EnTe) and through scaling with a community of practice. Their objective is to first establish continuous integration within the team, followed by a continuous delivery pipeline to ensure the quality of the software can be guaranteed at all times. In the process, PostFinance deals with obstacles, complications and setbacks as well as structure, procedure and accomplishments.
