What is xPlatform?How Does It Help Organizations Reduce Costs, Time, and Address the Shortage Of DevOps?


In the midst of global Digital Transformation, businesses face significant challenges. SCB TechX, a leader in digital technology, offers xPlatform, a Platform-as-a-Service solution. It advances DevOps into DevOps as a Service, automating and delivering tasks comprehensively. This helps organizations reduce costs, simplify workflows with automation, and manage DevOps tasks independently, enabling rapid product and service development.

The Background of xPlatform

The team of DevOps experts at SCB TechX understands that preparing infrastructure, pipelines, observability, security, and releases to encompass the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) before developing and delivering products and services for each project takes considerable time. Additionally, there’s a shortage of DevOps-skilled personnel in the market, and developers cannot fully replace DevOps. Many organizations face these challenges. Therefore, SCB TechX’s DevOps team has begun implementing DevOps Best Practices through automated workflows, evolving into DevOps as a Service. This helps teams deliver faster without increasing staff, allowing developers to manage tasks that were traditionally handled by DevOps themselves. They’ve also simplified other platform functionalities with easy access and a comprehensive, automated SDLC process. Recognizing these issues and solutions, xPlatform has successfully tackled them, earning SCB TechX the prestigious Thailand Team of the Year award at the 2024 Asian Management Excellence Awards for revolutionizing company DevOps operations with their ‘DevOps as a Service’ platform innovation. This has efficiently reduced project startup times and development costs, effectively managed Cloud resources, and delivered numerous leading products and services through xPlatform, including PointX and eKYC. Hence, xPlatform stands ready as a solution to enhance operational efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver products and services to organizations facing DevOps shortages or seeking streamlined operations.

Introducing xPlatform

xPlatform is SCB TechX’s first DevOps as a Service platform, automating the entire workflow cycle under the SDLC processes of developers and DevOps. It features a simplified interface to empower developers to independently develop and deliver projects—from infrastructure setup, code implementation, infrastructure provisioning, auditing, application deployment, to release products and services to market quickly and efficiently.


Why choose xPlatform?



  1. Enterprise-level expertise: The xPlatform team excels at Enterprise-level expertise due to extensive experience in developing and delivering solutions to numerous large organizations. Deep understanding of problem causes leads to pinpointing solutions, covering comprehensive risk prevention measures. This ensures that automated system designs meet xPlatform’s Enterprise service standards.
  2. Reduced preparation time: xPlatform reduces the time spent preparing before starting development and delivering projects by setting up infrastructure, creating pipelines, and managing security aspects all under its comprehensive SDLC process. This significantly cuts down on the time needed for project delivery.
  3. Automated DevOps tasks: xPlatform mitigates the scarcity of DevOps personnel in the market by automating all DevOps patterns and processes into pipeline templates. This includes defining processes, committing code, screening sensitive data, and offering a software catalog supporting both backend and frontend technologies such as Java, Kotlin, Scala, NodeJS, Python, Golang, Mock, Airflow, Flutter, and Serverless. It covers options ranging from commercial services to open source, aligning with DevSecOps practices and enabling developers to deploy to production immediately after coding and testing.
  4. Cost-effective cloud management: xPlatform helps reduce cloud management costs by automating checks on cloud resource usage and scheduling, ensuring unused testing environments are deleted or shut down as scheduled. This efficient management system helps organizations save costs effectively.
  5. Effortless and fast releases: xPlatform streamlines the release management process by storing essential documents such as security results and performance reports systematically. This allows quick and convenient deployment of products, services, and applications with a single click.
  6. Comprehensive scheduler and notification system: xPlatform addresses fundamental issues like resource scheduling and expired certificates by providing alerts and notifications to all users. It manages certificates as organizational assets, records expiration dates, and notifies users for renewal, ensuring smooth operations and reduced risks.
  7. Enhanced visibility: xPlatform enhances team visibility into infrastructure changes by providing a self-service portal for real-time access to change histories and problem root causes. This prevents wasted time searching for causes of issues like application access failures due to firewall changes.
  8. Prevent incorrect data updates: xPlatform prevents accidental updates of production data to non-production environments by validating patterns specific to each environment (e.g., .np, .dev). This validation process alerts users to errors, preventing incorrect updates.
  9. Continuous technology updates: xPlatform ensures its technology remains up-to-date, allowing customers to use tools that evolve with changing demands. It offers tools such as Hardening Base Image, Open Source tools like OPA, Trivy, Trufflehog, ContainerD, Grafana, Prometheus, KEDA, Springboot, Istio, Airflow, Litmus, ArgoCD, Opentelemetry, and Keycloak. Customers can deploy these tools through a self-service portal, ensuring flexibility and reliability.
