The organization used IBM UrbanCode Deploy software to create a software release automation framework, eliminating error-prone manual steps and speeding up the release process.
The solution helped reduce the time required for software releases by 99 percent, from 2 - 3 days to just 1 - 2 hours. The company also achieved cost avoidance of more than USD2.3 million per year.
