Thanks in part to the open mindset of the Hyrde employees, their flexibility and will to develop, the first results soon showed themselves. “We have already saved about 20 percent on our monthly IT infrastructure costs in the first few months,” Alexander said. “Moreover, thanks to the new CI/CD pipelines Richard has set up, we can deploy faster and with fewer errors. This has contributed immensely to operational improvement. The availability of features and functionalities has improved and the number of bugs has been reduced. We are less dependent on the knowledge of specific IT people and – thanks to standardized frameworks and templates – can configure much faster. Within the team, communication has improved tremendously. People understand each other better. We can therefore switch faster and there is more togetherness.”
Richard: “There is much less ad hoc work, much more planning and looking further ahead. And that’s a change you see throughout the company, including in sales, for example. Everyone is coming together more and more.” Code quality has also improved. “Hyrde has a very diverse and international development team. By making good agreements with each other and working with code reviews, quality has gone up. One way we see this is in the amount of issues we encounter in production.
