February 2, 2018

A growing discipline among the development community, DevOps is starting to get the recognition it deserves for its wide range of practice adoption benefits. As organisations recognise the need to adapt and rapidly react to market changes, the demand for DevOps is growing, especially in the current climate of digital transformation.
We are particularly proud to submit our collaboration with Waterways Ireland, not least for the chance to work with such a great organisation, but for the genuine difference the AIMS system has made to the management of the waterway assets and to the waterways themselves. The Waterways Ireland AIMS system now provides the organisation with a robust, integrated facility where all physical assets of the navigable waterways network are accurately managed and reported on, enabling them to maintain the waterways to a standard suitable for recurring public access. In turn this enables Waterways Ireland to better promote the network as a suitable tourism attraction for both local and inbound visitation.

Talking on the shortlisting, Uel Horner, Systems Analyst for Waterways Ireland says:

“We’re delighted to hear that the Waterways Ireland’s AIMS project has been shortlisted for the Computing Award for DevOps Project of the Year; it’s a great acknowledgement of how a close working relationship can reap dividends for both customer and supplier. Waterways Ireland has a long standing relationship with Etain as a software supplier; we have worked together since 2006 to develop a number of different solutions and then more recently Waterways Ireland has entrusted Etain to host these solutions. It has been a pleasure to work with Etain, the partnership works extremely well and as a result we have a considerable understanding of each other’s business. This understanding results in fast turnaround times from requirement through specification to product delivery – certainly the “agile” nature of Etain’s operations contributes to this. Whilst we may not necessarily have a deep understanding of the development tools used by Etain, it’s reassuring to know that they keep ahead of the curve in terms of adopting practical technology. Hopefully we both win from this nomination” 

The DevOps Excellence Awards ceremony takes place on Wednesday 21st March 018 in London’s Marriot Hotel Grosvenor Square.
