NARTech – Most Promising DevOps Solutions Provider of 2022

June 2022

The pace of change in the IT landscape has necessitated faster software deployment, albeit there’s a catch. The meaning of the term ‘faster’ can vary according to the choice of the IT partner. More often than not, the IT partner will deploy a minimum viable product (MVP) – the user organization may not recognize that the final deployed solution is an expansion of their MVP, giving a different meaning to the term faster. For some, the term faster is exclusive of the time taken by an organization to provide, at least, a blueprint of their existing IT infrastructure. And then comes the security of all these efforts, which is taken care of, in theory, by DevSecOps. Enter NARTech.
