The leading digital payments and cash companies were struggling with the tools used to develop their technology. Automation was low, and developer satisfaction was even lower!
GitLab was selected as the toolchain of choice to replace and Atlassian stack. In addition, OTTRA was chosen as the delivery partner working on installing, configuring, training and migrating workloads to the new platform.
1200 developers have now migrated across to the new toolchain, and the other tools have been offboarded, reducing costs to the organisation. As a result, developer satisfaction is rising, and they have been able to template and automate CI pipelines.
OTTRA advises the customer on how they can consolidate further by utilising the security capabilities within the GitLab product, retiring other tools currently in use.
Initially, the customer wanted to deploy GitLab themselves as they have the technical skills within the business. However, it became evident that despite having those skills implementing a new toolchain at enterprise scale needed people who had done it before for better results, quicker with lower cost as well!
