Our client is #1 in the music industry leading creation, production, distribution, licensing and marketing of all forms of media and entertainment content. Their customer insights application offers detailed insights into downloads, viewership, streaming data, personalized playlists and entertainment apps usage. The application is frequently replicated for testing and verification and is hosted in development, testing and production environments.
The client faced significant delays in deploying application code onto the production environment. The developers implemented new fixes and enhancements into the application code, performed initial set of tests and checked into the development environment. The run team responsible for validating the code built the new code in the run environment and ran numerous tests on a huge data set before deploying into the mainstream. This entire process of development, build and run along with frequent handoffs between teams resulted in delays of 4 to 6 days before the checked in application code went into production.
To address the significant delays in deploying application code into production, Agile GCP Labs, a Google Cloud Partner, implemented a scalable and fully automated Google Cloud based DevOps solution using Jenkins. The solution involved
The Application Deployment using Jenkins resulted in
Overall, the process was more reliable as it was mostly automated needing very little manual intervention, which resulted in reduction of operational overhead expenses.
