How Lightbend 'Reactive Launch' Gets Projects Going The Right Way, Right Away

The Value Of a Lightbend Guide On Your Reactive Journey

I’ve met a few really good mentors, and our Lightbend expert was one of the top…it made the Reactive Launch really impressive.

Global 100 Telecommunications client

As VP of Global Services at Lightbend, my team and I spend a lot of time on the ground with clients, working shoulder-to-shoulder with development teams, enterprise architects and managers to make sure their project gets started right. Throughout our experiences, we’ve seen that our most successful customers have been able to truly accelerate their progress with any new technology if they take the journey with a guide from Lightbend.

But not just any guide. Our experts have seen strong success in the past with this technology and know how to choose the right path, make the right design decisions and identify potential risks early. Crucially, our guides have seen the result of various trade offs and can help guide the project towards the right kinds of compromises.

What Is Reactive Launch?

Reactive Launch set us up for our next activity… [we] are sold on this aggressive approach to putting the technology in place.

Global 500 Financial Services client

Our Reactive Launch service is a guided engagement, helping our clients work hand-in-hand with our experienced and capable team to accomplish critical project goals. In order to ensure that the project team navigates decisions and mitigates risks successfully, we’ve designed a highly-prized methodology that:

  • Meets teams where they’re at, ensuring that recommendations, coaching and technology infrastructure choices can be adopted successfully by the project teams
  • Allows teams that are at important junctions in their projects - startup, growth, new phases - to work with a team that has seen this before and can help mitigate risk
  • Provides a whole-team approach, bringing not only technology coaching but also organizational coaching in topics like CI/CD, agile methods and DevOps techniques
