Client Profile


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.  

Key Challenge

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%.
