Anant, a sponsor of DC Enterprise Tech Meetup, held the monthly strategy breakfast on Oct. 2nd, 2015, where we discussed the software automation and integration.  Rahul Singh shared in-depth insights regarding how automation and integration can create lasting positive effects in businesses looking to eliminate or reduce the amount of redundant processes in their organizations.

 

We also spoke about how this approach can initiate a culture change from within, one which can spread through to other departments, such as software engineering in the form of Continuous Delivery Continuous Integration, also referred to as “CICD” in the software industry.

 

Anant specializes in analytics for companies with multiple and disconnected online systems, building websites for associations with multiple domains, and at-scale search.
