Ericsson's existing CI machinery suffered from inefficiencies, resulting in delays in software development, decreased productivity, and unreliable test results. They needed a robust CI infrastructure that could automate testing, deployments, and configuration management while maintaining scalability and stability across their telecom solutions.
Link Group's team initiated a comprehensive CI machinery development project to address Ericsson's challenges. They undertook the following key steps:
CI Machinery Troubleshooting: The team performed a thorough analysis of the existing CI machinery to identify and resolve any bottlenecks, such as slow test execution or deployment issues. They optimized the infrastructure to ensure reliable and efficient software delivery.
Jenkins Jobs/Pipelines Configuration: Link Group's experts created and configured Jenkins jobs and pipelines tailored to Ericsson's specific requirements. This allowed for seamless integration of code changes, automated testing, and continuous deployment, reducing manual effort and human error.
Kubernetes and Microservices Deployment: To enhance scalability and manage the complexity of Ericsson's telecom solutions, Link Group's team leveraged Kubernetes for container orchestration. They designed and implemented microservices-based architectures, allowing for modular and flexible deployments.
Creation and Configuration of New Repositories: The team established new repositories to enable better version control and collaboration among developers. This ensured that changes were tracked and managed efficiently, improving the overall development workflow.
Elevate CI Performance
Increased Efficiency: With the optimized CI machinery and streamlined Jenkins pipelines, Ericsson experienced a 30% reduction in build and deployment time, leading to faster software delivery.
Enhanced Reliability: The improved CI processes resulted in a 20% decrease in build and deployment failures, ensuring more reliable software releases.
Scalability and Flexibility: The adoption of Kubernetes and microservices architecture enabled Ericsson to scale their telecom solutions seamlessly. They experienced a 40% increase in their ability to handle higher workloads and efficiently manage application updates.
