Client Case Studies

Achieving the most accurate and reliable BI implementations with Motio

"After we deploy to production, if something was missed in testing, or we have an issue, we can very easily roll back to a previous version using the MotioCI tool."

- Jon Coote, CIRA

"When our Dev content store crashed, we had just implemented MotioCI four months prior. If we had not had MotioCI, we would have been in a really, really bad situation. Right there, it paid for itself. We would have lost months worth of development effort that was only in the Dev environment...

"We could not manage our environment without MotioCI. The release team is no longer the bottleneck. Processes are going smoothly."

—Richard Wylde, Catlin

"Finding a solution which minimized risk and guaranteed that our existing security policies remained intact was very important to us. We were very impressed with the smoothness of the transition."

—Lisa Kelley, HealthPort

"MotioCI is an active insurance policy. It is doing exactly what we wanted it to do."

—Molly Doyle, University of Colorado

—Rob Bakker, Eneco

"The relationshiop with Motio is an integral part of our rapidly expanding BICC, enabling holistic change control and proactive issues resolution on our critical reporting portfolio. It has and will continue to increase end user satisfaction and reduce total cost of ownership of our...

"With the complexity of our user interface, it would have taken us twice as long as it did if we had not started with Motio's software. They worked alongside of us to provide the best user interface for the product and the end results are quite impressive."

—Sheila Higgins, Avaya...

"I know of one instance several weeks ago where a set of reports went missing off the development environment and a ticket was submitted for the BACC support team. We were able to quickly show them how you can just restore the missing reports using MotioCI and their panic was over. It's...
