When it comes to DevOps solutions, there’s a dizzying choice of technology providers out there, from established enterprise companies to smaller headline-grabbing startups. Potential buyers can find it difficult to break through the vendor noise and FUD to really understand which solution will best fits their needs.

I founded IT Central Station to help solve this problem, by offering in-depth and authentic real user reviews for a huge range of enterprise technology solutions. With an active community of over 130,000 users adding their expert reviews to our site, we’ve become a vital source of trusted information about enterprise technology. With technology advances moving at the speed of light, I’d like to share some of the latest DevOps reviews on our site, so you can make your buying decisions free of vendor interference.

IBM UrbanCode Deploy

IBM UrbanCode Deploy has 9 user reviews on IT Central Station, and 8,635 users have been interested in comparing IBM UrbanCode Deploy with CA Release Automation.

This Application Developer at a large insurance company reviewed IBM UrbanCode Deploy and wrote that, "teams are now able to schedule deployments to any environment and watch in a screen the deployment occur. This has allowed teams to reduce the number of staff online when a deployment occurs.”

CA Release Automation

Our community members have not only contributed twenty text-based and video reviews for CA Release Automation. These reviews have been viewed over 20,000 times on our site so far.

In a new user video review of CA Release Automation, this DevOps developer at a large financial services company reported, “Things that we automate are taking upwards of 8 to 10 times less. Now, what we can do is we can do 3 to 4 times more on a release. We just had our largest release ever. Without CA Release Automation, there's no way we could deliver that level of code to our end-customers.”

HPE Service Virtualization

HPE Service Virtualization has an average user rating of 8.4, and currently has 6 user reviews on IT Central Station.

A Senior Systems Engineer at a large consumer goods company using HP Service Virtualizationwrites, “Everyone needs test environments, dead environments, environments for performance testing, a stage environment, etc. We can build them, but they're expensive. With Service Virtualization, it's much less expensive and we can turn them off and on when we need to.” He notes that the HP Service Virtualization design and stability have improved compared to earlier versions. Out of 2,343 comparisons, members of the IT Central Station user community compare HPE Service Virtualization most often to CA Service Virtualization, followed by Parasoft Service Virtualization.

IT Central Station members have reviewed DevOps and other IT software solutions from vendors including Atlassian, AppDynamics, BMC, Chef, Electric Cloud, IBM, New Relic, Puppet Labs, and others. Our reviews are particularly helpful for DevOps decision makers because they come from real users who can address both the usefulness of the solution they've used, and when it falls short.
