Automic Software Introduces Interactive Continuous Delivery Map of DevOps and CD Tool Chains
September 07, 2017

Automic Software, owned by CA Technologies, announced the release of its Continuous Delivery Map - a dynamic, visual map of the DevOps and Continuous Delivery (CD) tool chains.

The Continuous Delivery Map takes the form of a metropolitan transit map where tools within the DevOps tool chain have been categorized and represented as stops along color-coded rail lines. Each stop features a specific tool found in the app ecosystem, and provides a brief explanation and links to additional documentation as well as the product's homepage. Accordingly, the different “lines” represent elements of the development and delivery process.

“Making sense of the huge variety and number of tools available for the modern software development process can be confusing,” said Chris Boorman, CMO of Automic. The Continuous Delivery Map clarifies the role each of these tools plays within a CD context, and demonstrates how orchestration, which is at the heart of this guide, is critical to a successful modern software delivery practice.”

Providing a unique and simple format, this new interactive guide offers a standard reference tool that highlights the types of tools required for modern software delivery practices, with automation products like CA Automic Release Automation and CA Continuous Delivery Director which are core components to success.

“A variety of tools have emerged for each and every part of the software development lifecycle – not to mention others designed to securely, safely and predictably deliver applications to customers,“ said Alan Shimel, editor-in-chief at DevOps.com. "CA Automic’s Continuous Delivery Map is the ultimate reference guide for the DevOps landscape.”

Automic business automation provides enterprises with the visibility, agility, speed and scalability needed to respond to today’s evolving technology landscape. This best-in-breed business automation product centrally manages the execution of all clients’ workloads across multiple applications and supporting infrastructure.
