DevSecOps & SRE Assessment

DevOps and SRE Assessment is a strategic initiative, based on best practices, that helps leaders understand, arrive at a strategy, and create a roadmap to transform traditional IT operations into SRE successfully. Our SRE Assessment, based on Marc Hornbeek’s model, typically takes between 15 to 90 days, and we suggest starting with the 15-day Rapid Assessment.


Our Approach

Our DevOps and SRE Assessment involves the following phases:

 Discovery: A workshop with the senior management and team to understand their vision, and their big-picture goal. Everyone within an organization needs to share the same perspective, to respond with better opinions regarding the importance and capability scores for each of their practices.

We conduct a survey based on Marc Hornbeek’s 9 pillars and analyze the response to identify specific pillars and individual practices that have a high gap score, that is, the practices are considered important but are not practiced well.

Value Stream Map:

The gaps rated the highest in priority are then leveraged to organize a value stream map working session, which helps prioritize the most critical bottlenecks in terms of the people, processes, and technology, relative to the organization’s goals.

Implementation Roadmap:

Using the findings and results of the above value stream map working session, we formulate an implementation roadmap that directly addresses the goal, gaps, and bottlenecks.

Overall Analysis:

The implementation roadmap and findings are presented, reviewed, and discussed with the client leadership and team to ensure alignment with their big-picture plan.

*Our SRE Assessment approach – from signing off on goal alignment through surveys, Value Stream Mapping (VSM), roadmap creation, and strategic alignment – varies depending on the organization’s size, the number of applications, and the size of the deployment domains to be included.
