“No other art is a better fit than Cubism for representing software and databases, as they are a digital (the discrete) means of representing the real world (the continuous). In his piece “The Open Window”, the Spanish Cubist, Juan Gris, invites you to look at your everyday world in a slightly different way, as if somehow moving through time and space.”
— Mordechai Danielov

Well, for every sticky situation BitWise has a logical solution.
After analyzing dozens — if not hundreds — of production environments, we came up with a process that stabilizes the fire fighting and establishes a creative routine.
