Let us help you realize the benefits of Crafter's unique DevContentOpsTM process. Our DevContentOps Consulting Services help you implement and integrate the process into your organization's existing DevOps practices and tooling. We are expert at weaving Crafter CMS and its support for the DevContentOps process into major enterprises, enabling the tremendous benefits that result from breaking down the barriers between content management, software development, and IT operations.

Some of the outcomes of a DevContentOps Process Consulting Services engagement include:

  • Elimination of all barriers between content publishers, software developers, and IT operations -- enabling them all to work seamlessly together.
  • Shorter lifecycle for, and increased throughput of, delivering software features, fixes and updates of content apps to production.
  • Parallel and frictionless development and integration of content and software features through standard tools and approaches such as branching, eliminating the need for undesirable impacts including code and content freezes and double publishing.
  • Continuous publishing of content without any interruptions due to software dev/test/release cycles.
  • Continuous movement of code forward from development environments to production/operations, and continuous movement of content back from production/operations to lower development environments, facilitating CI/CD and traditional DevOps for content managed apps.
  • Continuous merging of source code and content changes to eliminate large merge conflicts and streamlined dev/test/release/publish cycles of content apps.
  • Seamless integration of traditional DevOps tooling for building, testing, releasing, and orchestrating content managed apps.
  • Cultural improvements resulting from enhanced collaboration among developers, IT operations, and content teams.
