Casestudy Autosar- Datamato

Large Indian Multinational IT Corporation

Datamato’s relationship with this client goes back to late 2013. The client started with acquiring limited licenses, more as a way of checking out the capabilities and value-add the IBM tools brought to their business. Datamato, by providing free services to start with and then later on implementing various successful Proof-of-concepts (POCs), was able to highlight the true potential and value-add IBM tools and related process brought. This resulted in increased adoption of tools across AUTOSAR SBU.The end-results being year-on-year there was a visible uptrend in number of IBM licenses being procured by the client. Culmination of the process being in 2015, wherein Datamato successfully pitched-in with token-model as preferred licensing mode to the client and ensured a lock-in for next 3 years.

Business Needs/Pain-Points :

  1. Requirement Management:
    • a)No formal way of capturing and versioning requirements
    • b)Lack of traceability, leading to missed requirements and delayed Product-development. Root cause being, no tool integration across life-cycle activitie
  2.  Complexity
    • a)Poor quality products due to higher complexity and dependency on decentralized / geographically distributed team.
    • b)Management Visibility or lack thereof:  Challenge to get a snapshot of entire development efforts at any given point-of-time.
    • c)Plethora of tools/technologies being used.
    • d)Management complexities for product-variants at different maturity status and accompanying difficulties in propagating fixes across variants.
  3. Optimization opportunity in:
    • a)Change Management
    • b)Defect Management
    • c)Project Management and
    • d)Process-Governance
  4.  Limited code re-usability
