Building our clients’ DevOps capabilities with high-calibre talent
FDM’s DevOps programme combines expertise in some of our most popular training streams, including Software Development, Technical Operations and Software Testing, with upskilling in DevOps-specific modules. All consultants apply skills from their training in practical lab environments, covering continuous integration and delivery, container technologies, build management, static code analysis, automated testing, artefact management, environments, orchestration, systems administration and performance monitoring.
Our DevOps consultants are trained in the key concepts of the stages of the delivery pipeline through Build, Test, Package, Provision, Deploy, Run and Monitor. Consultants receive training working with the latest technologies, which may include Jira, Confluence, Jenkins, Maven, Docker, Cucumber, Chef, Puppet and more.
Throughout their training, our DevOps consultants will practice their deliveries in agile teams, upholding the Scrum framework and working with a collaboration-first mindset. Our consultants receive instruction on the efficient use of source code and configuration management tools and cloud integration. This provides our consultants with practical experience to allow them to seamlessly integrate into our clients’ teams and immediately begin to add value.
We have worked with clients across many industries including health insurance and financial services to build DevOps capabilities. FDM’s ability to source junior talent for our clients allows us to provide high-calibre individuals with niche skill sets in DevOps that often come at a high cost on the open market. Following their two-year commitment with FDM, these resources can internalise with our clients allowing for long-term return on investment.
Providing delivery solutions to meet our clients’ unique needs
FDM can work directly with our clients to understand their unique DevOps requirements and customise a training curriculum to suit their needs. This customisation allows our clients to see the full value of the FDM model and build their talent pipelines for the future.
Our Training and Service Delivery teams, with extensive industry experience, ensure our consultants receive the training and individual attention they need to excel in their on-site placements. DevOps consultants have been deployed individually to augment our clients’ existing teams or as a group allowing them to provide full-service solutions to our clients’ most complex projects.
FDM DevOps consultants receive instruction in best practices and apply those skills working on sample projects in an agile environment. This allows them to understand the full project lifecycle and develop strong stakeholder management skills.
