the high productivity Platform as a Service (PaaS) from KeyedIn™
Solutions, has been hailed as a "game changer" by Scotlynn
Commodities USA division.
Commodities, which specializes in the transportation of
temperature-sensitive and perishable commodities, is proud to be the
first Konfigure customer. Scotlynn was introduced to Konfigure by Vella
Technologies, a Konfigure partner. Vella Technologies works to
deliver the highest quality IT infrastructure and workflow applications
to businesses around the world and views Konfigure as a “game changer”
for their clients.
Scotlynn was in need of a single, adaptable application that could
handle all its internal processes, from sales to human resources.
However, according to Ryan Carter, vice president of the USA division at
Scotlynn, other RAD (rapid application development) and PaaS platforms
that the company encountered felt like "a straightjacket," making it
difficult for it to turn its many ideas into functional tools. They
needed something completely new and different.
Being fully Cloud-based, Konfigure allows organizations to quickly
create Cloud solutions - bringing down the time and cost involved when
producing business applications. Companies can also steer clear of the
complexity of traditional software development and deployment thanks to
the KeyedIn Solutions PaaS plus product.
The Konfigure tagline, “Don't Code. Konfigure!” demonstrates how
companies can create and implement fully functional web applications,
such as HR, CRM, workflow, invoicing and online forms, without the need
for coding. Instead users configure the application using a 'drag and
drop' environment, which can be easily deployed in the Cloud.
Carter says Konfigure is perfect for Scotlynn's requirements and has led
to a fundamental change in the way the company's employees think.
"We can now focus on the task at hand, and we are always confident that
the technology behind us can support the ideas we have as our business
grows - we no longer have to worry about system errors or hardware
issues popping up,” said Carter. “What's more, Konfigure is very cost
effective. With a platform, based completely in the Cloud we can now
avoid the costs and time associated with having to hire new staff
members. Konfigure is a perfect development tool for the average modern
business person. Those who do not have a lot of technical expertise will
feel they can use the application to better run their business."
Rich Dumelle, general manager of the Konfigure division, said,
"Konfigure has the potential to revolutionize the way companies operate.
We’re delighted that Scotlynn Commodities chose the platform and we are
pleased to hear it has yielded such positive results in such a short
space of time. We hope that the platform will continue to serve Scotlynn
well for many years to come and help the company grow from strength to

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.
Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists will discuss how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations m...
