What if I told you that delivering a modern asset management lifecycle could be achieved using automation and infrastructure-as-code in a way that could be added to your existing DevOps pipelines? Traditional DevOps pipelines and managing digital assets are a lot more alike than you think;

Clear benefits

The benefits of adopting an infrastructure-as-code (IAC) approach to provisioning and managing resources is widely accepted. The benefits unlocked by using Hashicorp's Terraform for this are also well documented, in short;

  1. Version Control: Terraform code can be stored in a version control system, making it easy to track changes and collaborate with others.
  2. Repeatability: Terraform IAC can be executed repeatedly, ensuring consistent and predictable infrastructure deployment.
  3. Idempotency: Terraform ensures that the desired state of infrastructure is always met, regardless of how many times the workflow is run.
  4. Automation: Terraform can help automate the provisioning and management of infrastructure, reducing manual effort and the risk of human error.
  5. Scalability: Terraform can manage multiple AWS resources and scale infrastructure up or down as needed.
  6. Improved visibility: Terraform provides clear and concise documentation of the infrastructure and its configuration, making it easier to understand and manage.
  7. Cross-provider support: Terraform can provision and manage infrastructure across multiple cloud providers, including AWS, making it a versatile tool for managing infrastructure.

At what cost and risk?

The challenge to unlocking those benefits though is to find an approach will be cost effective and minimise your risks.

Hestio's vision for worX is to take the principal of "codify our value" and make that available to customers in a way that brings value at each stage of the Cloud adoption journey to address two of the most significant challenges facing enterprise AWS customers;

  1. Organizational Complexity: Large enterprises are often complex organizations with multiple business units, geographically distributed teams, and complex governance structures.

  2. Security and Compliance: Large enterprises often have more complex security and compliance requirements than startups, and maintaining security and compliance when adopting or scaling on cloud can be a significant challenge.

worX aims to help solve these challenges by providing technology that enables, accelerates and governs the cloud adoption journey.
