PARIS, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hubwoo SA (Euronext: HBW.NX), a leading collaborative business network provider, today announced availability of its next generation business process collaboration network, The Business Network. The Business Network has evolved from an enterprise class B2B eCommerce platform, founded in 1999, to today's leading multi-enterprise collaboration network that connects over one million global businesses. It offers companies a new and smarter way to search, connect, and collaborate across procurement, marketing, selling, and finance business processes. The result is a step change in savings, operational efficiency, and revenue for global companies of all sizes.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
