  • Automation of the upgrade steps, including the creation of a full regression test suite, enabling integration testing within days
  • Repeatable processes, supporting a project-by-project go-live through continuous integration and deployment.

  • This offering minimizes or eliminates code freezes and downtime while re-assuring both developers and budget-holders with frequent, highly-visible progress.
