2.Upgrade Outline

(1)"Container Orchestration"
Conventionally, various settings and systems development efforts were needed at the commercial environment side when migrating applications from a development environment to a commercial environment. This container-based application infrastructure enables deployment of applications in Dockers, which are created in a development environment, onto various cloud applications as it is. Therefore, this service contributes to faster completion of systems development projects. Various cloud services will be available from FY2018 including NTT Comwarefs cloud service "SmartCloud®" and various public clouds for deployment.

(2)More lineups for various OS/middleware products
We increased product lineups for the Atlassianfs CI/CD tool *2 such as Jira and Confluence, which are being used in agile development. The products are also applicable to Microsoft and Red Hat as the corresponding OS of the test server, for flexibility to meet various customer needs in enterprise systems development. (See attached for further information)

(3) Improvement of UI environment
The developer portal was upgraded to make the functions intuitive for customers to easily see all the resource information in the development environment. We also applied a multilingual system (Japanese/English) to cope with the rise in the needs for offshore systems development.
