We have been working with, and contributing to the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Indy and Aries projects for more than two years. In that work, we've dug deeply into self-sovereign identity (SSI), decentralized identifiers (DIDs), verifiable credentials (VCs) and the blockchain foundation that will drive the next major wave of Internet innovation. Want help with understanding decentralized identity/verifiable credentials and whether your organization should be getting involved (spoiler alert - you should!)? We can help you understand the space, if you should be using the technology and if so, how you can get started.
We've been implementing end-to-end value stream optimizations, integrating Development and Operations teams (DevOps), and creating continuous improvement cultures for more than 15 years. We provide customized (and open source) training to help your team align on what is to be expected from a DevOps transformation. We'll work with you to create and execute an agile plan to iteratively and openly carry out your transformation to an effective DevOps culture—giving you agility and expanded delivery capabilities.
We offer consulting, training and technical writing for identity using blockchain solutions and DevOps. In both domains, we anchor our services around two courses for getting started:
Both courses are intended to be customized and extended to kick off discussions and planning for your specific use cases.
Want a sample of what we can do? We created the Linux Foundation's course on Hyperledger Aries, Indy and Ursa. Check it out here.
Our DevOps journey started with a company run by Sales with an ever changing direction - like, every week. To survive, we needed iterative development, nightly deploys, manageable development streams
and lots of automation. We extended version control to support cherry picking "need it now" features, created a trusted deployment pipeline with automated build,
test and deploy, and a promotion system that allowed for daily releases with minimal downtime. Most important - a continuous improvement culture.
In short - DevOps.
With a successful implementation of DevOps under our belt, we travelled around and applied it at other places. Every place we looked, we saw the same issues - a delivery system that stifled development and frustrated business and technology teams. We applied the same principles, tuning them as appropriate for each organization - and used the latest tools. With each success, the capacity of the organizations we were working with grew. No longer was the delivery of business value held back because of manual processes delaying innovation and sucking up resources.
At the Government of British Columbia, we worked on and helped direct a team that took the DevOps concepts to the Platform level, deploying a full on premise Container Platform -- Red Hat's OpenShift.
That experience covered all levels of abstraction - architecting the system, deploying / maintaining the platform, designing the application pipeline, defining how teams would
build applications, and last but perhaps most important, building a sharing community around the platform. It was an awesome, incredibly valuable experience.
And a huge success.
As part of another BC Government project, we became involved with Blockchain, and specifically, the Linux Foundations's Hyperledger Indy project. As with the Container Platform experience,
it allowed us to contribute to and help direct a major new innovation. Hyperledger Indy is a promising technology that adds a new Identity Layer
to the Internet - and the privacy, security that comes with enabling trusted transactions on the Internet. And since Hyperledger Indy is based on Blockchain
we've learned a lot about that in the process.
Never a dull moment!
