Enabling a team of DevOps Engineers to manage the entire Digital Banking Platform

A large bank in Indonesia wanted to build a complete Digital Banking Platform. For that, they needed to enable Agile and DevOps practices among their IT teams. The objective was to demonstrate how cross functional teams can inculcate DevOps and agile practices to deliver business-critical software and based on the lessons learned, spread the culture across the IT group.
Challenges

These are some of the challenges that we were
facing

Traditional Bank IT
Traditional bank IT - Ops and Dev not co-located
No Dev-Ops Experience
No real world experience of DevOps or Continuous Delivery.
Zero Automation
Manual steps for system setup, every server was a work of art. No Version Control for system-level changes. Despite using the latest tools and tech,  it would take days to do even a minor update or hotfix. This made the whole platform highly unstable.
Team's Vision
There was no Shared Vision for the entire team to rally around
