CERN Scales their Complex Software Ecosystem with Automation
European webinar- 10 AM BST / 11 AM CEST (this is the corrected time)
No one said that finding out what the universe is made of and how it works would be easy. But at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, thousands of scientists are trying to do just that every day.
The development team at CERN has created many applications including the ROOT platform, a big data analysis for its High Energy Physics computing. These applications are used by more than 20,000 users to create cutting edge scientific software. Understanding that the quality of their application is critical for its large customer base, CERN adopted Agile practices like Continuous Integration (CI) and testing.
Please join this European webinar to hear how CERN implemented Electric Cloud’s scalable automation solution to build and test their complex software applications to improve their code quality and increase their release frequency.
Join this webinar to learn:
•How CERN validates their code quality when creating applications designed to identify the existence of sub-atomic particles

1) Accelerated, error-free builds
Agile development creates more frequent builds. A CD platform that optimizes and parallelizes large builds across hundreds, or even thousands of cores is good. A solution that automatically detects dependencies to eliminate broken builds is even better.
2) Faster feedback
You shouldn’t have to wait until builds or tests are 100% complete before receiving feedback. A CD platform that allows real-time drill-down into warnings and errors as they occur give helps eliminate wasted time and CPU cycles.
3) Bulletproof and painless processes
CD isn’t continuous if jobs in flight are lost when a CI server goes own; or when it takes days for QA machines to be provisioned; or when deployments fail because of differences between QA and production. A CD platform should automate and normalize the build, test and deploy process across ANY environment (public, private or hybrid) with 1-click simplicity.
