In today’s digital economy, the ability to bring new software applications and updates to market quickly is a key to competitive advantage. For companies in diverse industries, the goal is the same: Get high-quality software into production as fast as possible.
In this quest to accelerate release cycles, organizations must get beyond historical barriers that impede the rapid delivery of the software that keeps an enterprise competitive. In too many cases, processes tend to be inefficient, slow, and prone to failed releases.

With a population of nearly 10 million people, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. It's no surprise that with 1.5 million people taking public transportation every day to help ease some of LA County's infamous traffic, making sure passengers get where they're going is a monumental task.

When the city's IT team began receiving user complaints and experiencing performance issues with their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment, they began looking for alternatives.
