Schneider is a publicly traded company (NYSE: SNDR) providing freight, transportation, and logistics services from its headquarters in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It has annual revenue of $4.6 billion and over 15,000 employees nationwide responsible for more than nine million freight miles daily. Since its foundation in 1935, literally as one man and his van, Schneider has embraced technology as a key part of its business operations.

Schneider is undergoing a major transformation to digitize its business, and creating new customer-facing and back-office digital applications is a key part of this program. Supporting these endeavors are around 700 developers plus staff augmentation for larger projects. The company has also undertaken a significant legacy modernization project to replace older systems, largely with Oracle technologies.

Benefits of deploying include increased visibility into release and deployment, enabling continuous improvement across these processes.
