Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment (MRHE) is set to adopt a DevOps approach to software development, which will fully automate its application delivery lifecycle to speed up processes and make it closer to clients.
MRHE has appointed Archinnova, a business technology consulting and implementation firm, as systems integrator to implement and support a DevOps solution and educate users on Agile software development.
The move will make MRHE one of the first government entities in the Middle East to adopt DevOps, with the aim of being able to deploy more up-to-date services, encourage better interaction with customers and increase service quality.
Archinnova has detailed a holistic approach to MRHE’s software development lifecycle (SDLC), which should translate to improved service delivery and faster recovery of any service failure. The Archinnova DevOps management platform will also automate quality checks, and mange performance issues and ensure delivery of solutions without sacrificing quality.
“Dubai is currently in the process of transformation, integration and innovation, with happiness being the core of its success, an integral element to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,” said Talal Ahmed Ali, IT Director, MRHE. “Our mission is to achieve stability and drive in development through the provision of diverse and easy housing solutions to UAE nationals. We have selected Archinnova to help fully automate our processes and develop a complete Agile culture that covers all levels of management. Our partnership with Archinnova gives MRHE the confidence and preparedness to respond to changing business requirements and customer needs that will result in customer satisfaction and higher levels of happiness.”
For the MRHE IT team, the implementation of Archinnova's DevOps solution will include continuous software delivery, easy-to-manage applications and a faster resolution to problems and issues. The company says that utilization of DevOps can reduce resource demands on the application release team by 67%; cut the time spent repairing defects per environment by 75%; and reduce application deployment time by as much as 82%.
Adoption of DevOps is also predicted to result in happier and more productive teams, increased employee engagement and the presence of more professional development opportunities.

The successful collaboration between development, operations and business teams remains the formula for success for a best customer experience.
