Before Electric Cloud:
PASA experienced a long software development lifecycle due to increased project coordination and integration, longer software build times due to exponential growing code base, and complex permutation of the test matrix. Additionally, PASA needed to increase spending on IT hardware. Despite the fact that the existing overall average machine utilization is low, PASA struggled with the concurrent needs of IT hardware resources during certain peak times by many project teams. Wasteful use of development dollars due to software lifecycle inefficiency created more negative business implications downstream for PASA, such as rising costs of delivering IVI to car manufacturers, challenges in meeting customers’ expanding demands, and slower, more delayed delivery schedules.
