Project Background

Rockall delivers enterprise collateral management for the banking book to over 20 of the world’s leading banks. In re-building its flagship product onto a new technology stack, Rockall needed a new DevOps platform to fully automate its product deployment pipeline.

The goal of the DevOps platform was to deliver additional engineering capacity that would enable Rockall to build and test its complete software system dynamically with every change on an hourly basis across multiple platforms / OS stacks such as WebSphere, WebLogic, Tomcat across Windows and Linux platforms.

“Version 1 worked with us to deliver a fully automated DevOps process for our engineering group on AWS. The level of quality and speed of delivery that we have been afforded by Version 1 has made massive benefits to our development processes.”
