"With DevOps and Azure, we’re able to reduce our new-feature release cycle down to one week, and we think we can even speed that up."
Fikri Larguet, Director of Cloud Services, GEICO
Get to market faster for competitive advantage
Today’s markets move fast—faster than traditional development methods. A modern DevOps process in the cloud lets you release and iterate quickly, even several times a day. And getting to market first can be the advantage that makes you a market leader, instead of leaving you to play catch up.
"Branches sync 500 percent faster. Builds are 400 percent faster, with the typically six-hour process reduced to 90 minutes."
Improve quality, performance, and customer satisfaction
Everyone expects more from technology now, so if you aren’t continually improving your apps, you are missing opportunities. DevOps makes the feedback and iteration process efficient, so your apps keep getting better. And that means fewer service tickets and more satisfied users.
"The app rolls several solutions into one easy-to-use place where diners can get on the wait list prior to arriving at the restaurant and can pay from their phone. We also recently added the ability to earn, track, and redeem rewards for our new loyalty program: Dine Rewards. These digital solutions, through the app, have helped increase customer satisfaction and made the app a success with a 4.5-star rating."
Scale to handle your business growth
Grow your SaaS business without fixed infrastructure limitations, and maintain business agility with fast development and deployment. Scale up or down as needed, paying only for what you use. And scale when and where required, using global datacenters close to your customers.
"Five years of tremendous growth for Jenkins has outpaced our organically grown, unnecessarily complex, project infrastructure. Migrating to Azure simplifies and improves our infrastructure in a dramatic way that would not be possible without a comprehensive platform consisting of: compute, CDN, storage, and data-store services."
