Complevo is a software development firm that helps world-class brands leverage technology in order to innovate and drive their industries forward. From their offices in Berlin, Complevo’s work with firms in the automotive, public transport, and construction industries touches hundreds of thousands of lives—across Europe and around the world—every day.
Complevo’s solutions, running on Mirantis Kubernetes Engine, power the commercial and personal smart car systems of the second-largest automotive company in Germany—a world leader not only in manufacturing automobiles, but also emerging technologies like self-driving cars. The technology developed by Complevo can help coordinate vehicle fleets or support security and comfort in personal automobiles. With the software and expertise of Complevo and Mirantis, industry titans are able to move the whole world forward.
A platform for rapid iteration
At the heart of Complevo’s approach is an “integrated consulting” philosophy. “We go to whiteboard with partners to understand the problem together and design solutions together before moving to the solution space,” says CEO Karsten Friedrich.
This intensive, high-agility collaboration means that Complevo needs to be able to experiment and iterate swiftly.
“Rapid iteration is part of collaboration,” says Lead Engineer Maycon Beserra. “If you have to set up servers and provision resources, that’s really hard. But rapid prototyping is possible with a DevOps mindset—you get the product, then have a standard process to develop and deploy. You don’t have to worry about different standards in different client infrastructure or even internally.”
But building the cloud infrastructure to serve industry-leading clients comes with its own challenges.
