KinderSystems is the leading US provider of subsidy management SaaS solutions to hundreds of state agencies, Head Start programs and child care providers, all at various stages of modernization. Many of KinderSystems’ customers have already moved their tech stack to the cloud, which means deploying to various commercial and government cloud environments like Azure or AWS. However, some customers still operate mainframe systems, so KinderSystems needs to deploy on-premises and integrate its solution with customers’ legacy systems, resulting in highly customized deployments.
“For the past four years, KinderSystems has been leveraging Octopus to automate our software deployments, which helps us increase our time-to-market and eliminate engineer burnout,” said Lara Oerter, President, and Chief Executive Officer at KinderSystems. “Automating complex deployment processes allows us to ensure all providers in the publicly funded child care ecosystem have the solutions they need to deliver high quality child care to the families and children they serve.”
By leveraging Octopus, KinderSystems was able to achieve the following:
■ Increase deployment frequency: KinderSystems’ deployment frequency has increased by 2,000%, peaking at 482 deployments in a single week, with this number expected to grow.
■ Shorter release cycle: With Octopus, KinderSystems dramatically shortened its release cycle by deploying to development, testing, pre-production, and production environments faster. The process is fully automated using a rich set of Octopus features, including variables and multi-tenancy.
■ Time savings: KinderSystems performs more than 100 customer-specific deployments in two hours with Octopus. Deployments are pre-scheduled and run automatically, and Octopus notifies the KinderSystems team if there are any failures.
■ Reduced cost to deploy: Implementing Octopus’ best practices and standardizing deployment processes means KinderSystems teams who are close to their customers can manage deployments. Help Desk technicians, instead of developers, can execute the deployment process. This lets developers focus on what they do best – troubleshooting complex issues and coding new features.
“We are very honored to be a part of KinderSystems’ journey and to advance their mission through deployment automation,” said Paul Stovell, founder and CEO of Octopus Deploy.
