DRIVING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION TO DEVOPS FOR CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
Woven Planet is on a mission to design a happier planet through secure, connected mobility solutions. Founded in 2021, Woven Planet Group expands the operations of Toyota Research Institute – Advanced Development, Inc. to bring its vision, “Mobility to Love, Safety to Live” to life. Under this shared goal, its three companies Woven Core, Woven Alpha and Woven Capital seek to transform how people live, work, and play through new innovations and investment in autonomous vehicles, smart cities, robotics, and more.
Woven Planet adopted DevOps practices to accelerate innovation and promotes an agile development culture by applying Toyota’s principle of Kaizen (continuous improvement) to software development. To work this way, Woven Planet needed to release quickly and more frequently, and incorporate feedback rapidly, goals that were difficult to achieve through the waterfall development methods common in the automotive industry. Woven Planet sought DevOps solutions that would help ease the transition.
Woven Planet standardized on JFrog Artifactory as their single source of truth for all binaries and builds in their development pipeline. By integrating with CI server and other systems, their engineers designed and deployed an automated pipeline of infrastructure tools that produce a release within a few hours. Developers experience “virtually no downtime,” aided by high availability Artifactory’s stability under load.
The research group’s infrastructure success validated the DevOps development transition needed for agility and quality. From the moment developers push code, builds automatically flow through development, staging, and production environments to release, empowering Woven Planet to achieve continuous integration and continuous delivery.
“Our team manages the tools we need for development, JFrog Artifactory is one of them. Our mission is to improve the productivity of the developers building our products by providing these tools.”
