Overview

DevOps is the practice of an agile relationship between Operations and Development staff participating together in the entire software delivery lifecycle, from design through to the development and testing process to production support. DevOps is also characterised by Operations staff making use of many of the same techniques and tools as developers for this work. A key DevOps theme is the acceleration of the IT delivery processes with the goal to improve flow from requirements to production. A major cultural and structural success factor for DevOps is the focus on the creation of cross-functional teams, which have membership from both the Development as well as the Operations groups. The goal for our DevOps teams is to increase collaboration through improved relationships and shared objectives

This procurement relates the replacement of the in-house database administration role with an out-sourced DBA as a Service (DBAaaS). We are moving to a dynamic fast paced DevOps environment, which will require ongoing continuous delivery based on the set priorities, and as such the Database Management function will be outsourced, as this will allow the focus to remain on the priorities and not be distracted. The database function is still required, and as such we would like a vendor to take on this function for all database requests, as and when needed. Currently multiple vendors manage the majority of our database functions, so we would like to select just one to work with our teams in a timely manner and fit into our DevOps model.
