In 1913, luxury became a commodity as the Ford Model T car made its way into the hands of the American consumer. Before Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing with his assembly line, each Model T would be built by hand, car by car. Ford realized that in order to make the Model T affordable, he should not just focus on changing the design of the car itself but also the manufacturing process. In the months that followed, he pared down inefficiencies and standardized ruthlessly. The automotive assembly line was born.
With the first assembly line in operation, the time it took to build a car was reduced from 12.5 man hours to under 6 man hours. Further automation and improvements reduced the time to about 90 man-minutes. Eventually, on average the company produced one Model T every 24 seconds, and the price fell below $300. More than 15 million Model Ts were built before it was discontinued in 1927, accounting for nearly half of all automobiles sold in the world to that date.
We can, and should, take the lessons from the automobile industry — and the manufacturing industry in general — and apply them to building software. Most IT organizations focus on building software, and not on their Software Factory. Even though Agile software development is a standard methodology in many organizations, every application and service within those organizations seems to be built and packaged differently by different teams. There is virtually no standardization. The degree of automation and maturity of how software moves through its lifecycle varies drastically from application to application and from team to team. This results in not only longer software release cycles, but also inconsistent, unreliable and expensive software development, not to mention vastly reduced productivity.
Ford’s goal was to reduce cost and increase production. So how can software release costs be reduced and productivity increased across an IT organization? That question drove us to create Oteemo X, our flexible software delivery framework. Our goal, through Oteemo X, is to create world-class automated software factories (or software manufacturing units) for our customers so that they can significantly accelerate the delivery of their software.
Oteemo X will help create the software factory that will accelerate an organization’s adoption and realization of the following capabilities:
<li”>Hybrid Cloud Adoption and Acceleration (HCAA): A single pane of glass to manage your infrastructure including bare-metal, virtual machines and containers across your data center or cloud. Besides providing an unified interface for administration and self-service provisioning, HCM also enables services such as chargebacks, infrastructure lifecycle management, compliance and security enforcement across all connected providers.
Through Oteemo X, we accelerate the process to build the state-of-the-art Software Factory for our customers by over 6 months. However, every organization is different and requires customizations to our framework. Our approach to building our customer’s software manufacturing unit falls into 3 high-level phases:
We believe that organizations can truly gain an edge and become more efficient by focusing on improving and optimizing the Software Factory and not just the software, just as Ford put emphasis on the assembly line and not just the car that it produced.
Oteemo created a blueprint for Mednax to build a robust DevSecOps practice that would accelerate their cloud adoption and development lifecycle. See how Oteemo helped Mednax automate its ability to accelerate deployment time from months to minutes.
