HolidayCheck reached out to Container Solutions because they wanted help implementing Docker. They wanted to use Docker so they could more easily move their applications from developer machines through to production. In addition to this, they wanted to harmonise their development, test and production servers.
After a short conversation, in order to prepare them for their implementation, HolidayCheck asked us to help assess what we call the ‘three levers’. They are:
- Software and automated testing.
Together with HolidayCheck, through a series of workshops and structured interviews, we were able to identify the root causes of both the technical and human aspects of the problem. Later, with HolidayCheck's managers and engineers, we were able to build a technical strategy that we later turned into a prioritized backlog of work.
Max of HolidayCheck said, “Jamie and his team helped us to understand and surface our needs and map out our technical strategy, including practical and actionable first steps”.
Karl of HolidayCheck said, “I liked that you triggered sincere discussion across our group, forcing openness and directing us to practical first steps, and visualizing the set of key problems so clearly and so quickly”.
We are pleased to announced that Holiday Check are now working towards completing the implementation of their strategy and that Container Solutions are involved in technical and supportive roles.
