Enterprise DevOps with Application Release Automation
According to a study published by the IDC in 2012, 60% of all application failures are release and configuration related. 75% of operations teams’ time is spent on release management and .15% of annual revenue is lost to outages caused by human error. DevOps can shrink these statistics, saving your organization time and money and reducing risk.
The DevOps Solution
DevOps is an IT movement that is designed to address the disconnects between operations and development. While operations teams are focused on making sure the IT infrastructure doesn’t go down, development people aim to push code, change with business needs and develop new functions to differentiate their organization and provide a competitive advantage. The goal of DevOps is to break down these silos with the undeniable benefits of lower operational costs, faster deployment and greater flexibility to respond to business needs.
To keep pace with the speed of DevOps production, automation is key. Manual changes and scripting are too time consuming and error-prone to keep up with today’s agile environments.
Achieving DevOps with Application Release Operations
Application release automation technologies most directly support DevOps. The right solution enables end-to-end automation of the release process, providing the visibility and confidence to operate at an accelerated pace while reducing time-to-market and cost and increasing agility and flexibility.
The Nolio Application Release Operations Suite provides the ultimate automated platform to support DevOps. According to 451 Research Senior Analyst, Jay Lyman: “It enables the kind of scalable, continuous application deployment practices across different environments that represent successful DevOps implementation”.
