General Code Deployment - Earth Deployment for a Major Bank Within the Retail Industry
The customer engaged Version 1 as part of a general code deployment project for a major bank within the retail industry. Version 1 has previous experience with this.
The three goals the client wished to see from this project were a reduction in cost, mitigation of risk, and a better customer experience. They required a deep simplification of the application deployment processes [a functional transformation].
The two measurable goals were to reduce cost and risk. The client wanted to see a reduction in operating costs within GTS [Global Technology Services] by automating as much as possible. As well as a mitigation of operational risks by reducing the complexity of interventions on servers.
Solution & Real Differences Delivered
To put the project success into numbers, once Version 1 ensured that:
- More than 4500 servers became easily managed
- More than 4000 servers became securely compliant.
- More than 260 applications were modelled and standardized.
- The initial delivery of newer applications was reduced from around 6 months to 15 days.
Code Deployments Time has dramatically been reduced (depending on application complexity):
- From a day to few hours (4-5h).
- From hours (2.5) to minutes (approximately 45 minutes or less).
- Risk mitigation reduced by more than 70%.
- Operating Costs reduced overtime by more than 65%.
