When you’re in the business of connectivity and bridging gaps between your client’s financial operations then there’s one key aspect that your organization should imperatively possess. It’s no other than reliability.
Payconiq boasts a secure, scalable, and easily connectable payment platform. We take pride and aim to cater to the needs of our clients all over Europe. But, of course, these goals may only be accomplished with a full stack development organization and 24/7 site reliability that boosts our interoperability solutions.
What exactly is site reliability and how does it work? How will your business benefit from this system? What are the organizations that utilize this practice? Let’s find out.
Site Reliability Engineering
Site Reliability Engineering or SRE was developed by Google in early 2000. It’s a system that incorporates certain aspects of software engineering and then utilizes them for solving operational and infrastructure problems. SRE enables organizations to develop scalable as well as reliable software systems.
This is indeed a software-first approach that caters to large as well as complex systems and oversees the reliability and scalability of said systems. Site Reliability Engineering also enables the seamless sharing of information between the operations and development team. So, it’s not only robust but also a rather flexible methodology.
Furthermore, another reason how Site Reliability Engineering helps keep a robust system is in its ability to create a balance between delivery speeds and reliability. Since the coding can be proactively done and services can be developed to boost the reliability factor then this effectively lessens the stress on any operations team. SRE teams are more production management-focused as well as concentrated on the operational concepts of an application.
So, what are the key benefits of Site Reliability Engineering?
If an organization’s infrastructure has 24/7 site reliability then it greatly enhances the uptime of their systems meaning there will be very little to no downtime at all. Naturally, all layers of their system will always be operational, trustworthy, and reliable to perform their tasks.
Furthermore, this methodology prepares any organization or system for any occurring issues. It’s like having foresight of what will happen. And, if indeed certain problems occur, your system will easily remedy them and learn from such occurrences so they can be prevented the next time around.
As mentioned, SRE bridges any gap between an organization’s development and operations team. Seamless communication should enable real-time fixes to any issues that will arise.
Also, your system will have standardized and automated protocols that you may utilize for years to come. SRE has been around for two decades now and will continue persisting since it’s a smart, robust mechanism running at the core operations of some of the top companies in the world.
Who utilizes SRE?
The organizations that utilize SRE will give you a glimpse of how flexible this methodology is and, as expected, the list is diverse and spread throughout many industries.
We’re talking about, of course, Google, Netflix, Tencent, Alibaba, Microsoft, Apple, Dropbox, IBM, Oracle, and Github.
These technological leaders and innovators all make sure that they have transparent 24/7 reliability, and if you want the same level of quality for your organization then you should do the same.
What your organization needs now
Cross-border payments and transactions are becoming the norm nowadays. Due to the modernity of technology and the advent of E-Commerce, gone are the days that it’s just the large corporations that deal with financial transactions online on a consistent basis.
Today, people order products and services from halfway across the world effortlessly. Being a bank, online payment solutions provider, and/or online merchant, you have to adapt and provide a seamless, collaborative, mechanism behind all of these financial transactions.
What you need is an organization that is willing to hit the ground running and provide reliable and flawless payment solutions for you.
If we’re talking about financial transactions then the most important aspects that you should prioritize should be timeliness, universality, and comprehensiveness.
Transactions and payment need not only be fast but also efficient and easy to understand and execute. Banks should have immediate availability of funds, merchants should have a fast and secure way to transact with their customers, and online payment solutions providers should be as reliable as they can be in the eyes of their patrons.
The key to interoperability is universality and that means you can operate across borders without any blockades and delays. Time is of the essence in most, if not all, of these transactions and so one misstep in your operations would cost you a substantial hit on your bottom line.
The last aspect that we want to emphasize is comprehensiveness. What’s the point of having a well-oiled mechanism if your intended end-users can’t utilize it very well due to poor interfacing?
You have to accommodate both web and mobile transactions and your system has to be up 24/7 for people to make transactions anytime and anywhere.
