In addition to providing automated and self-serve migration plans and timelines for a complete migration, CEI will also perform pilot migrations.
CEI and GitHub partner to migrate the repositories and pipelines at scale to the GitHub Enterprise Cloud. We implement an iterative approach that combines active management with self-service.
What you get:
Perform source code migrations, including the metadata of history – commits, pull requests, hooks, wiki, and any other necessary history to GitHub Enterprise Cloud / Enterprise Manager User instances..
Migrate your existing CI/CD pipelines to GitHub Actions workflows so you can accelerate the delivery by custom workflows and automation.
Accelerate migrations and bring your delivery teams to GitHub Enterprise Cloud faster with expert-led automated & self-serve processes.
CEI will work alongside your team to begin onboarding the team, getting access to migration tools, and mapping internal processes.
Establish Baseline Process:
Prepare the environment to migrate repositories and integrations. Migration will follow a pre-defined roadmap and checklist from the DevOps Migration Playbook. Overall migration status will be reported every week and displayed via dashboard.
CEI will onboard your teams, analyze their repositories, plan the migration timeline in batches, perform the migration, and validate.
CEI and GitHub will partner with you to implement GitHub Actions at scale for your enterprise to accelerate build automation and integration into your workflows.
What you get:

Why DevSecOps Matters
Early adopters of DevSecOps are 2.6x more likely to keep up with frequent application updates, and are able to fix vulnerabilities 2x faster.
Benefits of DevSecOps include:
Increased customer and market trust, driving loyalty and adoption
Supports innovation and a work culture that promotes constant delivery and quick recovery from failures
Enterprise-wide security approach, where cybersecurity becomes a shared responsibility across all teams and individuals in an organization
Cost reduction via risk of cost due to attacks, as well as process efficiency cost (such as reduced time to identify and fix vulnerabilities)
GitHub Advanced Security
Adopt GitHub Advanced Security at scale to ensure security controls in your pipelines – from day one.
What you get:
Examine your code for security issues in real-time as you’re writing it. Integrate fixes natively into your developer workflow.
Prevent unauthorized access by proactively scanning for secrets pre-commit and searching repositories for leaked secrets that may have accidentally been pushed to your code.
Supply Chain Security
Catch vulnerable dependencies before you introduce them into your codebase by understanding dependency changes and the security impact at every pull request.
Get access to a single, centralized view of the security risks throughout your entire organization.
Third-party Security Integrations
Automate, customize, and execute your software development workflows in the same place you code.
A 1-week assessment will determine your existing DevSecOps maturity and capabilities. CEI will partner with your team to build a roadmap toward GHAS maturity models.
Strategic Alignment & Planning
Determine how GHAS will be implemented and set the foundation for DevSecOps rollouts.
Over the course of 2 weeks, you will plan for migration, identify ongoing tool usage, and complete developer onboarding.
Implementing GHAS at scale
Rollout, scale code and secret scanning, supply chain security, and security automation tools. Coordinate and deploy the compliance and security framework to govern your enterprise. (Estimated time = 8 weeks)
