  • Description: Helix ALM enables Conductix-Wampfler to efficiently manage requirements, test cases, defects, and source code, as well as automate functional and regression testing on a single, tightly integrated platform. 

A world leader in intelligent energy and data transmission systems, Conductix- Wampfler produces products that supply power on a 24/7/365 basis to stationary and mobile systems such as overhead and port cranes, amusement rides, production machines, and large mass transit systems. 

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

 

Integration Issues

When the organization’s development and IT initiatives grew more complex and inter-system integration became an issue, the IT group soon realized it needed a comprehensive platform to effectively manage their entire application development process and customer-facing applications. Conductix-Wampfler turned to Perforce for an end-to-end 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.”

In addition, Conductix-Wampfler’s development activities 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.”

Conductix-Wampfler’s IT group leverages the tightly integrated and customizable Helix ALM to formalize and automate their entire software delivery process. Perforce's software helps the organization promote team communication and collaboration through automated workflows and centralized control of all project assets.

Conductix-Wampfler also bridges the communication gap between business and IT stakeholders by closely integrating their SAP, CRM, customer web sites, 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.
