The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) is a horse racing operator and Hong Kong's largest community benefactor, operating as a not-for-profit organisation with $86.1 billion in yearly revenue.
HKJC also proactively identifies, funds, and develops projects addressing pressing social issues in Hong Kong.
HKJC wanted to introduce a more agile approach to writing, reviewing, building, testing, and packaging their applications.
When they approached Appnovation, it was immediately clear that they needed a digital solution that would unify the development methodologies used across all of their teams, to speed up their application development process.
This is one of the first steps for HKJC in embracing a DevOps culture.
Appnovation’s Atlassian partnership allowed us to undertake HKJC’s request, engaging in the Jenkins, and Artifactory components of this project. To unify HKJC’s development methodologies, Appnovation set up and integrated Bitbucket, Artifactory and Jenkins servers, created development procedures, and introduced unified code to the HKJC team.
We also developed continuous integration templates for their .NET and Java projects.
Our team worked closely with HKJC to serve their ongoing development needs. Appnovation’s experts also provided Town Hall sessions with the HKJC team to transfer knowledge on Bitbucket, Artifactory, Git, and Jenkins. We also created a developer handbook including installation guides, Jenkins reference guides, maintenance guides, and development walkthrough documents.
We also followed up this project with a visit to China to conduct a lecture in front of the Shenzhen team.
Appnovation HK team is very responsive and helpful. They always provide their professional advice on the licensing model of Atlassian products. Besides, they give us valuable advice on how to run “Agile” projects.
