CERN Scales Their Complex Software Ecosystem with Automation

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.

Discover 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.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How CERN validates their code quality when creating applications designed to identify the existence of sub-atomic particles
  • Why buildbot couldn’t scale to CERN’s needs
  • What benefits more than 20,000 users enjoy from CERN implementing Electric Cloud’s ElectricCommander solution
