Hiscox Puppet Case Study

Hiscox, a publicly traded property and casualty insurance company in the UK, needed to increase the pace of change and release new products quickly in a highly competitive and fast-moving market. So Hiscox began implementing DevOps practices, with Puppet Enterprise as its automation platform.

In this case study — written by Jonathan Fletcher of Hiscox — you'll learn how the company:

  • Reduced the cost of release on a major application by 97 percent.
  • Improved release cycle from one deployment every 10 weeks to 50 deployments per week.
  • Reduced time per release by 89 percent.
  • Reduced staff required to release by 75 percent.
  • Now builds VMware virtual machines twice as fast.
