Nolio’s VP Order Cialis Online of Products, Eran Sher said:Â âThe ability to drive rapid IT change and maintain the integrity of a SaaSÂ application, while minimizing human errors is finally here. Although aÂ relatively new concept, Manifest Deployment builds on the well-triedÂ principle of keeping data and process separate. The benefits for large ITÂ users, when faced with wholesale IT changes, are huge and we are delightedÂ that Tesco chose Nolio as the correct technology for this major IT shift.â
