What is SHIP-HATS?

SHIP (Secure Hybrid Integration Pipeline)-HATS (Hive Agile Testing Solutions) is the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery CI/CD component within SG Government Tech Stack (SGTS) with security and governance guardrails that enables developers to plan, build, test and deploy code to production.

This is a multi-tenanted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) hosted on Government Commercial Cloud (GCC) for all applications that is classified as restricted and below.

Why is CI/CD important?

Benefits of SHIP-HATS

  1. Policy Compliance: Standardised development tools and environment that is set up in compliance with Application Infrastructure Architecture Standard (AIAS) and Instruction Manual 8 on Information Technology (IM8) policies.
  2. Better Quality: Automated security testing detects vulnerabilities early in the development cycle helping to deliver high quality applications. SHIP-HATS allows agencies to follow prescriptive workflow templates and share knowledge among themselves.
  3. Visibility & Transparency: Agencies will always have access to source code and hence a better understanding of how the project is progressing.
  4. Shortened Time-to-market: Agencies can shorten the time to market by leveraging on SHIP-HATS CI/CD tools with predefined & re-usable configurations into their system and do not have to invest in resources/time to do procurement with different commercial providers. Agencies also do not have to invest resources to re-train staff who were re-deployed across agencies.
  5. Economies of Scale: SHIP-HATS purchases licenses in bulk and redistributes them for use in smaller quantities to agencies and is offered as a complete package with no hidden cost.
  6. GovTech Managed: The CI/CD tools are set-up, hosted, maintained and supported by GovTech letting you focus on your core application.
