T-Mobile Austria is one of Austria’s largest telecommunications providers. It serves around 7.5 million customers, with 97% of users accessing fast LTE reception. Camunda is a key layer in T-Mobile Austria’s architecture, helping the company to maintain agility within a complex, large-scale environment. We’ve been working with the team at T-Mobile Austria since 2015, in fact, we just wrote a case study about our work with them.
T-Mobile Austria’s IT team of around 100 developers is responsible for ensuring existing and new products integrate seamlessly with around 40 back-end systems. But it’s not just bringing new products to market where the team excels, it also manages an incredible amount of data, at all hours. One of the solutions it uses – database partitioning – is something you can easily implement in your own operations.
On a freezing, snowy Saturday recently, more than 30 hackers joined us at our Berlin HQ for Camunda’s first Hackday to orchestrate some seriously smart workflows.
One of the best aspects of the day was welcoming a number of Camunda newcomers alongside our experienced users, so we had a great opportunity to assess how intuitive the ‘getting started’ experience is. Plus, it’s always valuable to have a fresh pair of eyes look over your code, so for me, it was interesting to see how developers and architects interacted with our software when using it for the first time.
This blog post is based on the keynote I presented at CamundaCon 2018. It covers these four points:
- We’re all turning into technology companies.
- Digital Transformation relies on Business Process Automation (BPA).
- BPA is a technology puzzle that suits your business.
- Workflow automation is always one piece of that puzzle.
I am going to elaborate on each point and describe how I see Camunda contributing to this general development.
