  • Managing a growing, complex cloud infrastructure with a small IT team.


  • Puppet Enterprise enables the team to manage infrastructure as code; take advantage of DevOps practices; and efficiently monitor and manage its private cloud infrastructure.


  • Smartbit is able to provide uninterrupted services to the majority of Belgian schools and scale efficiently as Smartschool is adopted in the rest of the country’s education system.

Puppet rapidly became a mission-critical tool for the operations/DevOps team.
