Our client, a tier 1 global investment bank has embarked upon a program of change to enable business users and engineers to work closely together to drive outcomes.
Part of this change is the dissemination of enterprise self-service tools and processes to support technology and business teams.
Delphix’s self-service capability is part of that toolchain, and the creation of pods to drive the processes through greater collaboration.
The client and FWD View selected a complex, business critical, vendor trading application for the phase 0 implementation due to the need for continuous innovation and deployment. Our client is moving towards a multi-disciplined POD structure and requires a deployment pipeline that is both efficient and controllable by these teams.
The current process was sub-optimal in the time taken to deploy due to architectural constraints and process bottlenecks. Also once deployed the environments are used by the developers in an inefficient manner, selecting a complete re-load of the environment to correct simple issues. Delphix aims to create once and deploy many times.
Installing the self-service functionality requires an adjustment in mindset by the developers; working with bookmarks and branches to manipulate data to meet the requirement more efficiently.
