BURLINGTON, MA October 24 , 2011 - Attunity Ltd. (OTC BB: ATTUF.OB), a leading provider of real-time data integration software, announces that Mondial Assistance USA, part of the Allianz group of companies, has selected Attunity’s RepliWeb Deployment Manager (RepliWeb) to manage production releases of web applications, code updates and web content refreshes throughout its global datacenter infrastructures. RepliWeb will be tightly integrated into Mondial Assistance USA’s Application Lifecycle Management workflows and business processes, enabling rapid and continuous deployment goals.
The international leader in Travel Insurance, Mondial Assistance USA’s significant business growth has necessitated expanded development initiatives and IT Infrastructure. This rapid IT expansion added strain to legacy processes; manual deployment efforts required greater team resources, introduced risks, and also limited release windows.
In selecting RepliWeb, Mondial Assistance USA is able to accelerate production releases and better govern the entire Release Management process across Development, Testing, and globally distributed Production environments. To help achieve true Application Release Automation, Mondial Assistance USA leverages RepliWeb’s repeatable, reproducible deployment methods. Change control mechanisms and transparency now allow for efficient cross-team collaboration across Development and Operations Teams.
“Prior to RepliWeb, our team use to assemble at 4:00 am to manage critical deployments,” explained Chris Burroughs, VP of Infrastructure Services, Mondial Assistance USA. “The introduction of RepliWeb helped reduce deployment-related administration by 60% and virtually eliminated risks associated with legacy manual efforts.”
“Now that we are able to build standardized, reproducible processes with RepliWeb, our team no longer spends time scripting deployments, updating documentation, and manually checking production servers. Operational improvements and gains in productivity allowed us to immediately achieve an ROI equivalent to one Full Time Employee. And most importantly, our team is able to quickly respond to the demands of the Business and provide a high-quality production experience for our end-users”.
To extend the value of RepliWeb Deployment, Mondial Assistance USA will extend the products reach to automate the deployment of “Builds” from Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010 (TFS) to Testing environments. When extended to TFS, RepliWeb will allow Mondial Assistance USA to maintain a unified build-release deployment methodology that includes end-to-end reporting.
“RepliWeb is helping Development and Operations Teams standardize processes and achieve continuous integration goals, aligning large-scale production releases with more rapid, incremental code releases,” commented Garrick Herrmann, Vice President of Sales for Atttunity. “As a result, organizations can scale their web and application infrastructure, reduce risks, and realize improvements to their bottom line.”
