Recent collaborations in the solution testing have resulted in noticeable improvements to our core partner continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools known as Distributed CI (DCI).
As software systems continue to grow more complex, distributed in development, and dependent upon services and virtualization components from different vendors, CI/CD has become critical to maintaining software stability. While applicable to all customers in general, the individual requirements of the telco customer make working together ahead of multi-vendor solution testing and delivery critical. More and more, customers expect that marketed partnerships translate into multi-vendor solutions that operate as if they are delivered from one company.
