Come Meet Us and Merck at Jenkins World 2018 – Booth 120

September 17th – 19th, 2018
The real world is where theory meets reality. Governance and compliance meet the realm of automation. Culture meets new practices. These journeys are real and represent countless hours of thought, code and cultural shift. On Monday, September 17th, we were joined by Keith Smola of Merck, who discussed several key aspects of software delivery that have been a part of their journey.

“Having Plutora has helped to bind our data and processes together so I don’t have to go to ten different places to get information. It’s really easy to find out if I have an environment that’s available for booking, or does this environment have the right specifications.”

– Director of Environment Delivery Services
