Thoughtworks (NASDAQ: TWKS), a global technology consultancy that integrates strategy, design, and engineering, today announced its collaboration with Zones, LLC, a global IT solution provider, to augment and accelerate the e-ordering process for Zones’ customers in more than 100 countries around the world.

The Zones and Thoughtworks engineering teams will work side-by-side within a service-oriented architecture, microservices, and DevOps culture. Together, the teams will re-design Zones’ global order processing platform through a customer-driven lens, taking advantage of agile capabilities and engineering practices such as lean product development, iterative planning and delivery, and continuous integration and delivery.
