The British Army’s Information Application Services (IAS) branch had a requirement to provide an automation and orchestration capability which could bring modern DevOps and Continuous Integration methodologies into the Army Hosting Environment. Ansible Tower was implemented in late 2016 to improve control, knowledge and delegation which immediately improved the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the IT organization.

In this presentation you'll hear how Ansible and Ansible Tower were utilised to provide:

  • A user-friendly DevOps capability over existing automation
  • Enhanced user access control
