Black Marble assist leading Mergers and Acquisitions company, mergermarket, achieve best practices standards in ALM
We were delighted by the professionalism and knowledge of the Black Marble ALM consultant.James Sharp, Head of Software Development, mergermarket
mergermarket is a business development tool designed specifically for the mergers and acquisitions sector, providing proprietary intelligence and analysis on corporate strategy before that strategy becomes public knowledge.
mergermarket had carried out its own implementation of Visual Studio TFS, and was forging ahead getting its team up to speed on the tooling. However, it was keen to bring in an ALM specialist consultant to assist in making sure their implementation aligns with industry standard best practices and help consolidate the ALM tooling they had been using into one platform (TFS).
Following a recommendation by Microsoft, mergermarket brought in Microsoft Gold ALM Partner Black Marble to carry out a health check on the TFS infrastructure, as well as migration work and consultancy.
The implementation is now streamlined, working to ALM best practices, with legacy source code control systems incorporated into one TFS implementation with bespoke build and deployment templates all in two weeks.
