Improved update efficiency
An oil and gas company had a multi-day, error prone, manual process for creating updates for their customers. Crosslake worked with the technology teams to implement an automated build-deploy-test process to dramatically increase the quality of updates with minutes of elapsed time instead of days.


Automated test environment management
An insurance technology company's IT team was spending hours per week bringing up and tearing down test environments at the request of the development team whenever changes needed to be tested. Crosslake helped recommend solutions and put the plan together to leverage a cloud-based infrastructure provider to automate the process and allow fast testing of changes using true continuous integration. Additionally, we trained and coached the team on best practices in refactoring and unit testing to support the DevOps initiative.
Reduced test costs and duration
A Fintech software services company had a multi-week regression test duration that resulted in delays to deployment and revenue for new features. Crosslake worked with the team to streamline code commits, implement agile test practices and rethink its test and deployment automation strategy, including folding the DevOps role directly into the Agile teams. This resulted in a 50% reduction in the test duration and $2 million reduction in test automation costs.
