Conductix-Wampfler Optimizes Software Delivery with Helix ALM

Conductix-Wampfler’s IT group automates their entire software delivery process with Helix ALM. Perforce helps them communicate and collaborate through automated workflows and centralized control of all project assets.

Conductix-Wampfler’s IT group needs to create applications and automate business processes. But they had a problem in their software delivery process.

Until they added Helix ALM.

Helix ALM enables Conductix-Wampfler to efficiently manage requirements, test cases, defects, and source code. It also automates functional and regression testing on a single, tightly integrated platform.

Conductix-Wampfler is a world leader in energy and data transmission systems. They produce products that supply power on a 24/7/365 basis. This power supports systems such as cranes, amusement rides, production machines, and mass transit systems.

The company’s IT group is responsible for creating applications and automating business processes. These enable their employees to perform key work functions, such as customer service and support, engineering change orders, training, capital investments, and many other critical tasks.

Finding An Application Development Solution: Helix ALM

The organization’s development and IT grew more complex. Inter-system integration became an issue. They needed a platform to manage their application development process and customer-facing applications. Conductix-Wampfler turned to Perforce for an ALM solution.

“We were using Perforce’s Surround SCM product to manage our source code and other digital assets, and were very pleased with its capabilities,” said Chris Michl, CIO of Conductix-Wampfler’s US IT group. “But our defect tracking tool did not integrate with Surround SCM and had its limitations.”

Conductix-Wampfler’s development had become more intricate. “We were missing the key tools to better manage other aspects of our development process. Helix ALM now enables us to efficiently manage our requirements, test cases, defects, and source code, as well as automate our functional and regression testing on a single, tightly integrated platform.”

Bridging the Gap

Conductix-Wampfler’s IT group uses Helix ALM to automate their entire software delivery process — from requirements to software testing and bug tracking. This ALM tool helps communication and collaboration through automated workflows. It also centralizes control of all project assets.

Conductix-Wampfler now bridges the communication gap between business and IT stakeholders by integrating their SAP, CRM, customer websites, and quotation systems.

Equipped with the end-to-end Helix ALM capabilities, the Conductix-Wampfler development team is able to accelerate the delivery of high-quality system solutions to the competitive energy and data transmission marketplace.
