How does a global technology giant stay at the forefront of a rapidly changing industry and deliver even more value to its customers? The answer, in part, for Ericsson was to upend long-established software development processes and move to a continuous delivery model based on DevOps.
Ericsson’s goal was to employ DevOps to orchestrate automatic deployment of change across up to 15 different enterprise applications, including SAP. However, they soon realized that they had no way to connect SAP with the CI/CD orchestration platform that was coordinating change across other applications.
ActiveControl was selected to bridge this gap and fully integrate SAP into the CI/CD pipeline. Changes are now automatically delivered on a biweekly basis, with thousands of transports being safely deployed in some two-week sprints despite the complexity of a multi-track development landscape.
“Because of the automated code merge process, developer effort in navigating different code branches has been reduced by 60% at least.“Uday Poranki | Domain Lead, Ericsson
