Customer Success Story
Transforming the delivery process
Standard Bank is transforming its delivery process to provide new features and services at velocity. You can read their story in our whitepaper, “Standard Bank: Our DevOps Journey.”
PLANNING THE DEVOPS JOURNEY
Realizing that the old way of doing things had to be changed, Standard Bank brought in Chef to help them. People from development, operations and business met with Chef to pick a pilot project, map out their DevOps journey and level up their skills.
GUIDING PRINCIPLES AND THE TEAM
The planning group decided that their guiding principle would be to move quality to the left. The new way of doing things would have quality built into it, would be repeatable, and would be automated. The multidisciplinary team that would implement the pilot project was called the Chop Chop team.

The part that’s powerful is when I can spin up a pre-configured and certified environment that’s ready for my entire Internet banking solution to run on it. That’s what Chef does.
Standard Bank’s pilot project was a success. Now there’s enthusiasm for DevOps on a broader scale. With the right culture, everything is possible.
