Linus100 Expands Banking DevOps Capabilities


BROOKFIELD, WI – Following the acquisition of Chicago-based BreakFree Solutions by ThoughtFocus, Inc., the company recently announced new services that help banking and financial services clients implement and scale strategic digital initiatives through a marriage of agile and DevOps frameworks. 

“The weakest link in financial services digital transformation is the disconnect between the operating model used to build, operate and manage your on-prem IT infrastructure and the model used by your Agile dev teams,” said Mitch Northcutt, managing director of BreakFree. “The practices used in on-premises environments inhibit the success of these efforts. Cloud-native is quite different and requires the use of different processes, skills, and tools.”  

ThoughtFocus, through its expertise in product development, cloud enablement, DevOps platform engineering, digital security, IaC (infrastructure as code) and automation, has a demonstrated track record helping on-prem financial services organizations behave like cloud-native DevOps teams with new skills, processes, and tools.

“Unlike other IT consultancies, we do more than strategy. Our experts work alongside your team to make the strategy a reality, leaving you with high-value digital products and teams who are skilled at maintaining and improving them,” said Shylesh Krishnan, ThoughtFocus’ Chief Executive Officer.
