Things were getting out of hand for Jack Reese, CIO. The more code commits his engineers made, the more liabilities they introduced in the form of practically untraceable bugs. The technical debt of his code base just kept piling up. Every moment spent was an expense that showed up on the balance sheet… that he had to answer for. Fortunately, he found a solution in Horus.
When Jo Carter, CEO, announced, “I want to deliver the ultimate user experience. At a fair price point. And I want it yesterday,” Reese knew that, as head of IT strategy and systems, his job was on the line. He was responsible for all the financial aspects of his engineers’ code base.
For years he had struggled with the so-called best-in-class solutions that promised to deliver what he wanted, to journal all the work done his engineers.
Yet in one review meeting after another, the solutions never failed to disappoint. Finally things had come to a crisis. His organization had to deliver — or die!
