Founding Principles

The Agile Inception approach to technology solutions is driven by principles that are important
to us and our clients - from developers to C-level executives:
  • Cost-effective
  • Secure
  • Scalable
  • Resilient
  • Performant
  • Compliant

Architect

The core of Agile Inception's service is designing, building, and evolving resilient enterprise cloud architectures. We've been building successful systems and software platforms for years, and we draw upon this experience and our rich knowledge of cloud services and technologies to deliver top-tier public, private, and hybrid cloud systems.

We take a modern DevOps approach to architecting:

  • Security, performance, and testability inform every architectural decision from project inception to full production operations.
  • We create our cloud systems using Infrastructure as Code, which allows us to iterate architectures and automate deployments quickly, while maintaining the templates in source control as a permanent blueprint of your critical systems.
  • Finally, we implement monitoring and analytics to continuously provide feedback so that we can evolve the systems and advise our customers on ways to improve their technologies and - ultimately - their business.

We are continuously advancing our knowledge and experimenting with new technologies, which has led us to be huge proponents of microservices running on serverless and container technologies.

The global presence and ever-expanding feature set of Amazon’s AWS public cloud form the backbone of our public cloud approach, while our OpenStack team delivers the best of private cloud customization, features, and stability.

Automate

Agile Inception places automation at the forefront of any successful cloud engagement. With automation comes speed, repeatability, reliability, and inherent documentation of specific processes.

When you automate infrastructure deployment, you can empower your developers or QA team with the ability to spin up ad-hoc stacks for experimenting or testing. They no longer have to wait for a systems expert to build an environment by hand. And since it's so quick and easy to deploy full stacks, the infrastructure can be torn down again after use so that you're only paying for resources when they're actually being used.

Software deployment and testing automation has been around for a while, but many organizations are not using these tools to their full potential. A comprehensive suite of integration tests for your application can not only be run at code deployment time, but also following any system maintenance, upgrades, or other infrastructure changes.

SCM (GitHub, SVN) repositories store cloud architecture and test suite blueprints
CI/CD pipelines test and promote application and infrastructure iterations
Solutions leverage modern service APIs to deliver maximum agility over a large feature set
Automate rapid deployment of compute, storage and network resources
Monitor resource metrics and logs to trigger event-driven autoscaling and self-healing services

Analyze

Proper monitoring and analysis of infrastructure and software systems is a fundamental DevOps principle at Agile Inception.

We integrate the tools you need to gather operational data on your critical systems, enabling you to understand how they are performing and to make informed decisions.

The monitoring and analysis process is a continuous loop which includes the following:

Collect

Gather basic and detailed system and custom application metrics, as well as logs, in a central location

Monitor

Define performance thresholds for metrics and continuously scan logs for errors, security breaches, or other signs of trouble

Visualize

Display key data in dashboards that are customized for the needs of different business and technology audiences

Alert

Send notifications to appropriate people or external systems when thresholds are breached or failures detected

Adjust

Analyze metrics and make changes to systems and software to improve performance, resiliency, and cost optimization
