Charles Schwab + Cutover

Proactively execute and automate your release programs, for more change with less risk

Increase change capacity and reduce outages by at least 20%

Delivering technology change often spans business, technology, and operations teams, each with their own internal systems, communication channels, and ways of working. When implementing change, the inability to break silos and coordinate work activities seamlessly across organizational barriers is a brake on both effective planning and successful delivery.

Cutover enables precise planning and rehearsal, leverages automation, and expands observability across all users and business units. All this results in greater collaboration and better outcomes.

Never miss a release deadline again

Plan, orchestrate and analyze all aspects of your change management and technology release schedules, with visibility of every moving part in a single view.

  • Structure your change events into SaaS-based, automated runbooks, providing rigour, predictability and reliability to your schedules. Standardise your methods and expand your capability to drive even more change.
  • Still using tools like Excel, and spending hours on phone calls with your team? Hugely improve the efficiency of all your change events with greater visibility of planning, testing and execution.
  • Integrate your existing tech stack seamlessly. Your teams can still use all the tools they love, whilst you ensure full visibility for global teams, so everyone is on the same page in real-time.

Move to proactive rather than reactive release management

Orchestrate humans and machine automation in seamless collaboration, to reduce risk, simplify complexity, and enhance visibility. 

  • Bring together global teams, different processes, and technology stacks to move from incremental to real-time outcomes.
  • Set automated triggers for your runbooks and workflows, to get real-time insights and manage change as it happens.

When a change event takes place the runbook is played through and hundreds of individuals can follow the operation as it progresses and coordinate via Cutover chat / mobile app. Managers maintain a bird’s eye view of progress and IT staff can better see what’s required of them.
CIO Top Global Bank
Cutover has been absolutely foundational to everything we’ve achieved in this program over the last year but especially over the final weekend where we had the vast majority of staff remote. Trying to execute such a complex, multi-threaded and cross-party migration without Cutover would simply have been impossible. Thank you to the team for your help, guidance and support.
