“ This is why pundits extol the virtues of DevOps—smart coordination across the teams' three dimensions of core technology, client solutions and managed services can have amazing impact. ”
Carl Kraenzel, director of the IBM Watson managed services group, IBM Distinguished Engineer, IBM
A global computer products, services and solutions company based in the United States, IBM operates in more than 170 countries and has nearly 427,000 employees.
To develop leading-edge client solutions based on the IBM® Watson™ cognitive computing platform, IBM needed to establish software development and deployment practices to support constant, rapid change.
The IBM Watson teams used a DevOps approach, including IBM Rational® software, to support continuous delivery of complex new releases.
The teams are moving from 9-week to 3-week sprints and pushing every sprint release to production, resulting in three times greater delivery velocity, reduced costs and fewer disruptions for clients.
