KLM to Receive IBM Global WebSphere Award at Impact 2011 for Saving $1M With XebiaLabs' Deployment Automation Product

XebiaLabs' Deployit and IBM Help KLM Air France Reduce Time to Market by Transforming Web Deployment Department From Bottleneck to Change Enabler

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - KLM Air France releases hundreds of software deployments each week, however, these deployments were error prone 70 percent of the time, leading to significant issues with Web application time to market and operation costs. To decrease deployment issues and speed up deployment times, KLM implemented XebiaLabs' deployment automation solution, Deployit, integrated with its IBM Websphere infrastructure, to reduce time to market for new applications by 10 percent and realize savings of approximately $1 million in man hours.

Recognizing this significant achievement, the IBM Global WebSphere Community is awarding KLM a Customer Recognition Award at Impact 2011 on Tuesday, April 12th in Las Vegas, Nevada. This award showcases customer solutions using WebSphere products and technologies brought to life with the help of Business Partners.

"The recognition of KLM's innovation in the use of deployment automation by the IBM Global WebSphere Community is the most recent example of XebiaLabs' commitment to our partnership with IBM," said Coert Baart, CEO, XebiaLabs. "KLM's success shows the powerful combination of IBM infrastructure and deployment automation in helping any Web deployment department with time management and quality assurance. For companies developing their own applications, in particular, such solutions as Deployit greatly improve overall spending and take the complexity out of managing deployments, as KLM can attest."

With Deployit, KLM has been able to manage and configure mission-critical applications quickly and confidently, reducing dependency on specialized technology experts. And, thanks to XebiaLabs and IBM, KLM's WebSystems department has been transformed from a bottleneck to an enabler of change with significantly less time spent bringing applications to market and updating backend website deployments.

Baart continues, "The need for such deployment automation tools is being realized more and more, especially with the explosion of virtualization and cloud computing over recent years. Many companies are struggling to deploy their applications to these increasingly complex environments, battling issues of virtual sprawl and dispersed networks. But, with deployment automation, companies can manage and contain such issues, giving them a seamless application deployment process."

XebiaLabs is exhibiting and demonstrating Deployit at Impact 2011 at booth #E4. If you are a member of the press interested in setting up a meeting, please contact Meredith L.
