Synchrony Systems uses IBM Bluemix and DevOps to develop a pilot mobile solution for Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)

Launching new mobile features in 45 seconds versus 3 months

Published on 30 Jul 2014

One of the glaring results that we've seen here once we started using Bluemix and building these applications, is that instead of the typical six-months effort that an organization would take to build an application like that, it took us 15 days, from concept to a running system. And that has potential going forward, of a cost savings for BART of possibly on the area of 80 to 90%. They no longer have to be afraid of six-month, to one year, to two year project engagements. They can see that systems like that can go to production from inception...in about 15, to 20, to 30 days. And that's a huge benefit.
