The development team of more than 30 programmers traditionally relied on manual processes for the organization's software development efforts. Initially, these methods were satisfactory, if somewhat time- and labor-intensive. However, the company's success led to extremely rapid growth over a fairly short period of time. This growth included steadily increasing acquisitions, staff, and deployment of new platforms.
As their computing environment became more complex, the demand on programming resources increased accordingly. Development took longer, and it was harder for the group to meet scheduling needs. Activities became more difficult to track, let alone document. These slowdowns created new barriers to meeting audit and compliance requirements.
Frustration peaked when IT team members found that despite their best efforts, the process was inherently flawed and the potential quality risks had become too high.
The programmers were not alone in recognizing these issues. Company executives identified an urgent requirement for a centralized change management system. To address this objective, they initiated a cable, media, and logistics project code-named “Camelot.” The project's goal was to standardize all Tele Columbus Group sister companies under a central IT department.
