Rabobank has been able to accelerate the delivery of application updates while promoting good quality code is promoted through our development lifecycle. Our deployments have accelerated from weeks to hours with improved visibility for both developers and IT ops staff. This has helped to free staff to deliver more value to the business.

  • 15x faster testing
  • From 2 annual releases to 40 go-live releases per day
“These are all now working in the same environment, the same versioning mechanism, working on one consistent result. And that’s I think one of the core messages of DevOps…This is certainly running our business smoother.” Ralph Van Beek, DevOps Architect, Rabobank

Daimler Trucks needed to replace its fragmented and slow application development and deployment process to meet the increasing demand for IT applications. They successfully implemented a DevOps application delivery model and developers now manage their applications from coding to automated deployment and rollback.

  • Increased deployment by 94%, saving 3000 hours.
  • Reduced deployment time from 1 hour to as little as 4 minutes
“Our clients are innovators and IBM DevOps Automation is enabling them to deliver reliable and secure software as fast as possible. Efficient software delivery is essential for modernizing the applications that run our businesses, and that people and researchers depend on daily. Software matters, therefore, the efficiency of software delivery matters and that is why IBM DevOps Automation is so important for our clients.” Sebastian Krause, SVP and Chief Revenue Officer, IBM
