DevSecOps (Gitlab Solution Design & Build)

Government Department

Case Study – Government Department



Our client has their DevOps and CI/CD practices are managed through the several tools fragmented by multiple instances Gitlab with redundant infrastructure and all the build and deployments are managed through multiple instances of Jenkins across the teams, while Gitlab is solely used for the source code management.

As a result of the obsolete tooling in the continuous integration and delivery pipeline, which make it difficult for engineering team to use the new features, it is necessary to speed up the delivery pipeline and raise the standard of software delivery.



Maintainability: High maintenance overhead managing multiple GitLab instances and Jenkins and low confidence in system stability preventing updates due to end-of-life.


Resiliency: The current CI/CD environment presents a high impact risk to the organization without any proper BCP and DR capabilities


Missing Key DevSecOps Capabilities: The current tooling is missing key features from newer versions of GitLab as well as the premium feature and support offerings.


High Technical Debt: There was an excessive amount of management work due to the heavy usage of outdate versions of Gitlab, Jenkins and plugins, which weren't maintained anymore or were too unstable to upgrade in the deployment environment.
