Wealth Management Group Acquires 93% Faster Delivery with DevOps and CI/CD Practices
The Wealth Management Group’s Challenge
The biggest challenge faced by the client was transition of application development from another vendor who was using age-old practices used for software development. The problem was further compounded by long running release cycles due to the inefficiencies in writing and testing the application. While many other projects within the organization were able to achieve shorter release cycles, the application in question took almost six times more time for a release.
The Clovity Solution
Our DevOps Studio’s CI/CD specialized implementation team came forward with design and implementation solutions. It created a single integration trunk and separate branch for each release. Bitbucket was the tool selected to implement code commit controls and manage the input of changes.
The team created an automation test suite for critical and high priority test cases and developed automated test scripts for them using Selenium. Everyday, we scheduled an automated regression suite on the creation of each new build. Atlassian suite of products used for CI/CD: Bitbucket, SourceTree, Bamboo, Clover, FishEye, Crucible, JIRA, Selenium.
As a result of the engagement, our client came down from a 3-month release schedules to bi-weekly release schedule that helped achieve faster turnaround in fixing production issues. The customer had complete visibility into code coverage, code issues, and quality of code by developer. This, coupled with rapid deployment, reduced deployment tasks to less than a day.
