Around 15% of the French company’s 65,000-person workforce is made up of software engineers. And software plays a key role in nearly all of its products, largely critical systems for the aerospace, transportation, and defense industries.
Customers are becoming more sophisticated in their software usage
Thales noticed a shift in expectations as its customers became more sophisticated in how they used software to serve their own clients.
Thales’ software engineers needed to adopt modern software development methodologies, such as continuous integration/continuous development, to increase release velocity and to deliver new products and services to market faster, as its customers expected.
Thales Group is a French multinational company that designs, develops and manufactures electrical systems as well as devices and equipment for the aerospace, defence, transportation and security sectors. The company is headquartered in Paris' business district, La Défense, and its stock is listed on Euronext Paris.
To make the most of these new techniques, developers at the Digital Factory develop and run their software on VMware Tanzu Application Service, a modern, cloud-native product purpose-built to enhance developer productivity and enable extreme operational efficiency.
The platform streamlines the process of getting new development environments up and running and removes administrative burdens like provisioning virtual machines and configuring networks.
The result is that developers spend more time doing what they do best: writing code.
