“Our DevOps function has seen a lot of change in the way we release code to production this year, in a positive way. This is all because of DeeperThanBlue’s extensive involvement. We now have a clear test strategy framework and a strong focus on being risk averse, rather than producing more test scripts resulting in more overhead. We needed to work smarter not harder. We now have testing automation in our Development and Test environments and pipelines, which has a huge impact as DevOps can be proactive rather than reactive when dealing with issues. This helps in ensuring no delays and a smooth transition of code to production. Testing is the final gate to production, so it is important to get things right and catch issues before they occur. DeeperThanBlue are now championing the implementation of TDD to ensure we are delivering quality to production, earlier.”
Steven Poulter, Build Test & Release Manager, AJ Bell
“The remit for DTB Unify was very broad, but equally clear and fundamental to the shaping, scaling and enabling of the quality approach within AJ Bell.
Jamie integrated within his peer line and the wider squads to ensure regular updates and communications at the daily scrums. Clear, transparent communication and immediate feedback across both testers and wider organisation was key to this approach working. I would happily use DTB again in a heartbeat.”
Neil Graham, Head of Engineering, AJ Bell
“With the experience that DeeperThanBlue have, they bring a different perspective to the table. They challenge the norm in a constructive way, by building on the good work that the QA team already do and bringing in new ideas, vision and technology. The QA team have taken to this approach with great enthusiasm and several members of the team have taken their careers to the next level thanks to DeeperThanBlue’s guidance.”
Chris Everett, Principal Developer, AJ Bell
