UK National Weather Service Selects XebiaLabs for Application Deployment 
Services 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 --   XebiaLabs
(www.xebialabs.com) today announced a new customer of its flagship
Deployit application release automation platform. The Met Office, the
National Weather Service of the United Kingdom for 150 years, and
recognized as one of the world's most accurate weather forecasters,
will use XebiaLabs solution to increase accuracy, speed and scale for
the Met Office's deployments of new applications and services. 
Alan Morbey, Configuration Management Team Leader at the Met Office,
said, "With Deployit we have already seen some very encouraging
results, with deployment times being substantially reduced."  
Working with XebiaLabs UK partner Cachet Software, the Met Office
will be able to support continuous delivery of services to millions
of customers while reducing the risk of errors and number of
resources required to get applications out to users. 
Until recently, application release preparations were done manually,
meaning each step would be subject to time-consuming checks to ensure
it was planned and executed properly. 
For the Met Office, XebiaLabs Deployit will ensure more efficient
performance and deliver the ability to keep track of deployments and
report on deployment results, leading to a substantial improvement in
efficiency of the service delivery process. 
Employing more than 1,800 people at 60 global locations, the Met
Office uses more than 10 million weather observations and a
supercomputer to create 3,000 tailored forecasts daily. These
briefings are delivered to the general public, Government,
businesses, the armed forces, and other organizations. For more

"The Met Office needed a flexible solution that could better scale
and support continuous delivery of web-facing services to customers,"
said Coert Baart, XebiaLabs CEO. "Working with our partner Cachet,
the Met Office can now create an enterprise-class delivery solution
automating the development-to-production chain, improve quality and
reliably release features to users quickly."
