CASE STUDY CERNER CORPORATION ACHIEVES FASTER TIME TO MARKET WITH AGILE CHALLENGES REDUCE TIME TO MARKET Prior to VersionOne, it was taking Cerner's development team about 30 months - from concept to client adoption - to introduce major innovations. Cerner knew it had to accelerate its products' time to market to help clients navigate healthcare reform and stay competitive in a rapidly changing industry. To achieve this, Cerner's developers needed more agility in their software development processes. The solution was the adoption of Agile practices across the enterprise. Matt Anderson, director, Cerner Technology Services and Cerner's leading Agile champion, calls the company's approach "Pragmatic Agile." In other words, the enterprise focuses on ensuring that Agile principles and values are followed and the teams decide the Agile approach they will take. Successful organizational change must simultaneously incorporate people, process and tools. While Cerner had a great team who was committed to Agile processes, they needed an enterprise Agile application lifecycle management (Agile ALM) platform that would enable the people and processes to succeed. After reviewing several options, they selected VersionOne as their primary tooling partner. TIME TO MARKET REDUCED BY 75% HIGHLIGHTS DEVELOPMENT COSTS REDUCED BY 14% PRODUCTIVITY INCREASED BY 24% TURNAROUND TIME FOR RESOLVING CRITICAL DEFECTS REDUCED BY 50% "VersionOne is a great partner. The company continues to innovate to meet the needs of the Agile marketplace. They are justifiably one of the top Agile ALM vendors." Matt Anderson Director Cerner Technology Services
