SyntBots™ Enables DevOps Automation for a Leading Financial Services Provider >>
An international financial services company with operations in more than 20 countries engaged Syntel for a DevOps automation project. This required many applications across technologies such as Java and .Net to be deployed, but the slow manual process led to delayed turnaround time.
Syntel implemented SyntBots™ — a next-generation automation platform that leverages intelligent robotics and autonomic computing technologies to deliver faster, efficiency-driven processes and services.
- Inconsistent models in the development, user acceptance testing (UAT) and production environments
- Manual release processes with different methods used by different team members
- Little or no monitoring of non-production environments
- Limited capacity planning and infrastructure provisioning, leading to cumbersome monitoring and tracking
- Inadequate infrastructure patching and upgrade strategy planning between the client's various environments
Syntel's team of banking industry experts and technical analysts assessed the existing project for areas of improvement that could yield long-term benefits, without impacting the client's processes and timelines. The team leveraged SyntBots™ for DevOps to create a simplified automation process that enhanced the client's quality and efficiency.
