ARCAD for DevOps Success Story

Dancerace logo

Founded in 1992, Dancerace is a leading ISV in the banking and financial services sector providing best-in-class assetbased lending (ABL) systems for businesses across the globe. Dancerace has long led the ABL market, developing one of the world’s first online banking systems, the first receivables system to offer a modern graphical user interface, and the first ISV in their sector to embrace the cloud.  Using ARCAD for DevOps, Git and Jenkins, Dancerace resolves ‘bimodal’ challenges to reduce the IBM i (aka iSeries, AS/400) release management workload by 50%.

Case Study Highlights

  • Company: Dancerace
  • Industry: ISV in the banking and financial services sector
  • Challenge: As the Dancerace development team started to diversify their technology landscape adding open source tools such as Git, Jenkins and Jira, a clear ’cultural divide’ began to appear. Software development was clearly easier in the ‘new world’ with modern tooling.
  • Solutions: ARCAD for DevOps

Customer Success

With ARCAD for DevOps, we have automated an enterprise-grade CI/CD pipeline for RPG based on Git and Jenkins and massively improved our responsiveness to user demands.
