A resources management company needed Rocket’s help to regulate, automate, and gain visibility into their application development lifecycle.
Challenge

Communities around the world rely on clean drinking water, energy-efficient infrastructure, and effective waste management. When it comes to providing these essential resources and services, it’s important that the operations and technology that support their delivery are optimized.

A resources management company approached us to help manage their IBM i application lifecycle. Regular Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance audits meant that application documentations had to be consistently updated. The company wanted to automate the time-consuming tasks of documenting, reporting, and providing constant visibility into the changes made in their applications. More importantly, they needed to prevent “code collision,” where developers were overwriting each other’s code. This was happening frequently because the company employed contract workers (who didn’t always document their work) and code generators. This also made it difficult to know which programs were being referenced as development teams progressed further on a project. Developers didn’t know whether they were working on the same program at the same time, causing frustration and hours of lost work and wasted effort.

Result

After implementing Rocket Aldon, the company has prevented numerous development collisions. As projects move from the development stages, Rocket Aldon is able to manage and automate modifications. And because changes are now tracked throughout the project lifecycle, developers can see when and what modifications have been made. Rocket Aldon has helped the company save time by enabling better visibility into their application development processes. Now their teams can focus on delivering services that support cost savings and sustainability goals.
