Vistaprint is a global, e-commerce brand that produces physical and digital marketing products for small and micro businesses. It was one of the first businesses to offer its customers the capabilities of desktop publishing through the internet when it first launched in 1995. Vistaprint is wholly owned by Cimpress N.V, a publicly traded company based in the Netherlands.
Vistaprint, an incredibly agile company, needed an automation tool that would integrate with JIRA to achieve the fluidity within their SAP systems needed for multiple sprints and daily deployments to production. The company originally looked at using other tools, but these were too rigid and did not provide the right checks and balances for daily deployments. In addition, Vistaprint wanted the tool to have a best-in-class analysis capability to identify sequencing and dependency issues to allow for continuous delivery.
Vistaprint chose to implement ActiveControl because of its ability to fully integrate with JIRA and support true agile development with daily SAP deployments, a crucial requirement for Vistaprint. The advanced ActiveControl analyzers help to identify sequencing and dependency issues to ensure safe, daily SAP release cycles.
Additionally, the automation tool will give Vistaprint the ability to measure and improve on SAP development performance, finding waste and inefficiencies, all to promote continuous improvement.
