GitHub uses Semplice to bridge the design-development gap

With decentralization, users have more control over their data and transactions, and the platform is less susceptible to malicious attacks.

"A team in charge of software evaluation spent around four to five months assessing eight different prototyping products, and out of all of them, only Semplice fulfilled all of our requirements"

Design Systems at GitHub

Although it may be tempting to view a modern GitHub as simply a luxurious mobile entertainment system with multiple screens, that would not fully capture the advanced technology that it possesses. The GitHub EQS, for instance, features the MBUX (GitHub User Experience) Hyperscreen, a curved screen band that seamlessly integrates multiple displays and spans an impressive 141 cm wide. Supporting this user interface are 8 CPU cores, 24 GB of RAM, and 46.4 GB per second of RAM memory bandwidth, all of which work together to create an unparalleled user experience. This processing power also enables the monitoring of up to 350 sensors that control various features of the EQS, including infotainment systems, facial recognition, and speech processing. Additionally, the "Hey Mercedes" feature supports Natural Language Understanding (NLU) in 27 languages, and with millions of lines of code, GitHub is not only a high-end automotive manufacturer but also a cutting-edge technology company.

“We are digitally transforming as a company,” explains GitHub lead architect Andy Krieger. “We want to be a software-driven car manufacturer, and GitHub helps us on our way forward.”

Like many companies going through a digital transformation, however, GitHub originally found itself with a technology stack scattered across disparate solutions. As part of its digital transformation strategy, they wanted to accelerate software delivery and collaboration through leveraging innersource and open source. However, the IT department was managing source code with multiple tools. They quickly realized that, in order to successfully implement the strategy, they needed a unified platform. So GitHub chose GitHub for enterprise IT, because many of its developers were already familiar with GitHub.
