DevOps, the alignment of developers and operators to create constant improvement, is being embraced by companies worldwide. In a DevOps environment the developers who create software deliver their code to the system operators who deploy it. Feedback is rapidly recovered and fed back to the developers for the next round of improvements. This achieves constant improvement through rapid and constant deployment of new code.
But what happens when you’re an ISV, a team of developers without a corresponding team of operators to connect you to users?
You Must Select the Right Azure Expert MSP
Just as you are all about development, Azure Expert MSPs are all about operations. Whether your customers are operating on-premise or in the cloud they benefit from engaging the services of a well-prepared MSP to take the burden of IT operations off their plate.
Aligning your developers with a proven high-quality MSP to become the operations side of your DevOps team brings you and your customers the same tremendous advantages that those global companies are enjoying.
What Makes an Azure Expert MSP Right for an ISV?
An important component of a DevOps process environment is the sharing of tools and methodologies to increase everyone’s familiarity with the software. This requires significant knowledge transfer and sharing.
The right MSP takes full responsibility for migrating and optimizing your application on its target environment. They share their deep architectural platform knowledge freely with your development team, training them thoroughly in the best application building practices on that platform. This is not an effort to transfer responsibility. Instead it enhances information sharing between your Dev and the MSP’s Ops.
More Value for Customers, More Revenue for You
Aligning yourself with the right Azure Expert MSP enables companies with no or minimal operations teams to enjoy all the benefits of DevOps, bringing all the value of constant improvement and extremely close management to them without distraction from their own core mission.
This value is most often recognized in the form of project expansions to include new functionality that generates more development revenue for the ISV.
The right MSP also has exceedingly close relationships with the cloud platforms they integrate onto. Most of these platforms feature Marketplaces to facilitate the marketing of ISV products to more and more customers. By handling the addition and promotion of your products through these Marketplaces, the right MSP expands your customer base through joint sales and marketing activities conducted in concert with you and the cloud platform provider.
Your MSP partner also protects your installed base by constantly administering, monitoring and managing compute operations, facilitating the provision of new support requirements quickly and efficiently. Long before users begin complaining you’ll know what needs to be done to prevent them from encountering anomalies.
Select The Right Cloud Platform, Too
When customers are depending upon a cloud provider to run their business, they prefer well-known platforms they are confident they can rely upon.
Microsoft Azure is the premier choice for companies who mean business when they move operations to the cloud. For ISVs, your applications are best served in the environment that has been carefully created by the world’s foremost software and services company.
