KLM Realizes Savings of Approximately US$1 Million With IBM and XebiaLabs
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM) is a leading European airline company. At KLM, the WebSystems dept. typically works on 35 projects simultaneously, with around 200 Java 2, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application deployments per week. However, the company's deployment system had limited functionality and was inflexible and sensitive to errors. KLM faced problems in over 70 percent of its software deployments. KLM wanted to increase the level of service while reducing costs and speeding development. KLM engaged IBM Business Partner XebiaLabs to implement its deployed solution, an intelligent deployment automation application for development and operations teams. Deployit enables automation and streamlining of Java deployments in middleware environments and sits on top of an existing middleware infrastructure at KLM that includes IBM WebSphere and IBM Tivoli software.
