Customer Success Stories

Major Health Care Provider Centralizes enterprise builds with Meiter

See how a Major Health Insurance Provider implemented a centralized build process using Meister.

 

100% Build to Deploy automation that is Developer Driven

See how a Major Insurance Company implemented a secure, developer driven, build to deploy process using OpenMake Deploy+ and CA SCM r12. This demo has an excellent example of how Deploy+ with Remote Agents can parallelize the build to deploy process.

 

Meister added Transparency to the process...

"The implementation of Openmake Meister for build management allowed  BNSF to directly address one of their biggest challenges in the area of IT controls. This technology automated the team’s build processes, providing a  complete audit trail of changes, progression and approvals through each lifecycle stage. Finally, the implementation team used MKS Integrity Manager’s capabilities to manage the implementation itself." BNSF Technology Services Division - Learn More

Meister Standardized the compile process across the enterprise at UCLA ...

"UCLA's challenge was to standardize how builds and releases were processed, regardless of the development language used. OpenMake Meister provided this across the enterprise." University of Southern California, Production Control Team Lead - Learn More

 

Meister allowed developers to be more efficient saving money and time...

"As a company who specializes in process improvement we look for the most efficient ways to manage changing resources and requirements. We found this quality in Openmake Meister. Meister has allowed us to improve our development process by providing a streamlined, agile and 100% transparent build environment across the application lifecycle." Chris Lank, Ivis President and CEO, VP Worldwide Sales, Togethersoft

Meister accelerated builds across multiple remote machines...

"OpenMake Meister drastically reduced the cost of supporting our builds.  Meister allowed our build team to increase the number of builds supported using only 1/2 the staff, configured across 100 remote build agents."   Production Control, Major US Bank

Meister added consistency across multiple languages...

"Meister provides us a standard rules-driven build process regardless of platform, compiler and operating system. We selected Meister because it is the only enterprise-wide build tool that can thoroughly support our mission-critical Java, C/C++, and .NET applications.”   Todd Athorp, Sr Programmer, FIS

Meister allowed for more control in a 'fast evolving' development environment...

"Meister offers us increased productivity and quality  compared to manually controlled builds. Meister also completes the configuration management process through it's central build capabilities allowing Fortis to fully control all internal and external software assets within our fast evolving J2EE world.”  Matthias Pyck, Fortis Bank - Learn More
