Visibility and accessibility are key factors when it comes to efficient software development. They’re also key pillars of DevOps, and a first step in the fight against silos which hinder, well, pretty much everything.

TL;DR

Today's infrastructures are complex and inaccessible to everyone except the most technical profiles. This isn't good for efficient teamwork. Infrastructure diagrams don't work with modern infrastructures, so we've come up with an alternative called InfraView.

Today, we want to show you how Cycloid is currently being used in a situation that is pretty unusual, both for our customer and for us. Coronavirus has had an impact on almost every business imaginable, but the consequences for organizations that need to plan in advance around events that rely on mass public participation have been huge. The organization that we're looking at today found itself in precisely this situation and immediately got to work trying to find a workaround. The process makes for some pretty interesting reading, so let's take a look.
