The software development environment is now considered as a Mission Critical Service for which two key IT projects require an infrastructure specialist.

Build Program

The Build Program has the goal to design, implement, test and deploy a new software build system. Due to legacy environments, build exceptions and violations, unfinished projects and insufficient documentation, the current build system is considered not to be maintainable for the coming years. In one of the tracks of this program additional Linux build servers will have to be deployed and an investigation is planned for the viability of virtualizing the build server environment.

Pioneer project

The Pioneer project has the goal to migrate the current, Solaris based, software development environment for XT machines to Linux. To enable this transition the underlying IT infrastructure will have to be migrated to Linux.
