Accelerate Cloud Value | Operationalize DevOps | Automate IT

What Matters

DevOps

The shift towards Agile software development has birthed new techniques, technologies, and IT operating models that change how companies deliver software, secure infrastructure, and manage change. We provide services to all areas of the IT value stream affected by DevOps including value stream mapping, continuous deployment/delivery, infrastructure automation, and advanced DevOps-centric operational toolsets.

Cloud

New development, investments, and experimentation happens best in the cloud – primarily Amazon Web Services and Azure. Gone are the days of security and compliance uncertainty. These providers are now tables stakes. We provide cloud-native design, refactoring guidance, and migration work to drive the optimal consumption of AWS and Azure.

Infrastructure Automation

Automation is the now the standard foundation for the construction of optimal IT operations. The technology and automation techniques championed by web-scale, cloud providers, and software development groups is proven as a superior tool for building, deploying, and operating IT infrastructure. Not all automations are created equal and BreakFree is pioneering automation infrastructure engineer standards and providing our clients with high velocity automation teams who take on the most complex IT infrastructure automation challenges in support of cloud and DevOps initiatives.

Containers

Software development architectures have normalized to micro-services architecture, and containers are now the established platform to build and host micro-services applications. Container platforms provide native, mature automation and DevOps capabilities and enable portability. They standardize deployment pipelines, prevent cloud lock-in, and solve scaling challenges. BreakFree has expertise in building container platforms on-premise and in the cloud. We work with development and operations teams to help operationalize and integrate these platforms into their operating models.

We combine custom Agile visioning and planning initiatives, integrated Agile work and code management systems, and Agile Scrum delivery management. We provide reliable up-front timeline and cost projections and on-going flexibility and transparency enabled by Agile Scrum-driven delivery.

Prescriptive Solutions

We hold candid relationships with our clients. We establish strong orientations on critical decision points, and we know it’s essential to our success. Our extensive experience automating IT infrastructure, migrating applications to cloud-native architectures, and instituting DevOps operation models enables us to establish and communicate clearly defined positions on technologies, delivery approaches, and work prioritization.

Collaborative Workshops

BreakFree’s facilitated workshops are the foundation of every major engagement. With over 30 years of experience, BreakFree leadership has perfected the form and function of these workshops. We create an inclusive and collaborative environment where we can share our positions and receive candid feedback. We guide our clients through the building process establishing project-specific approaches, work prioritization, timelines, and project governance models.

Vendor Independent

BreakFree is not agnostic. We realize there are superior technology building blocks that enable our clients to transform their IT operating models. We work to align our delivery capabilities and vendor relationships with what we know to be the best solutions. We don’t develop substantial reselling agreements or allow any organization to have exclusive rights to our solutions catalog. This focus on vendor independence differentiates us from the majority of our competition whose vendor relationships compromise their ability to make non-influenced recommendations.

We align with enablers.
