Northwestern Mutual has been helping achieve financial security for nearly 160 years. In order to continue to offer the same efficient service and solid security that has earned them 4.3 million customers, they knew they had to change. The IT solutions the institution depended on wasn't up to today's fast-paced demands or high-security requirements. Agile software development firm, Centare, offered to create and implement an innovative continuous delivery pipeline solution using the capabilities of Microsoft development technologies and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) processes. While the big changes that the new system makes is primarily internal in nature, Northwestern Mutual has been around long enough to know that they have a direct impact on the bottom line and the satisfaction of their customer.
