Reducing Deployment Time from Months to Minutes


Baker Hughes GE’s outdated, monolithic infrastructure created crippling dependencies for their global analytics team, making deployment a 6-12 month process.


BHGE used Docker Enterprise to containerize analytics software, allowing them to securely distribute data to scientists around the world.


Leveraging Docker Enterprise brought BHGE out of “polyglot application dependency hell” and cut deployment time down from over six months to less than one hour.
