Ascend.io announced support for Amazon Redshift Serverless powered on Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), a fully managed petabyte-scale cloud data warehouse.
Transposit introduced new platform capabilities which are developer-friendly, but built for all.
They empower non-developers with customization, flexible orchestration, and intelligent operational visibility. Transposit’s expanded functionality bridges the gap between engineering and ITOps teams so they can work better together to deliver business value more quickly. By enabling teams to work with agility while simultaneously maintaining the governance and process controls, Transposit brings calm to the chaos of managing the complex modern stack.
Key new features of the Transposit platform:
- No-code runbook builder empowers technical operations engineers to build sophisticated workflows across the DevOps toolchain without needing to write code or learn a specialized workflow tool.
- New triggers for runbooks and actions within runbooks enable highly flexible, event-driven automation. These triggers afford teams the freedom to build and automate pieces of their workflows in a more ad-hoc, incremental manner so that processes are adaptable to change.
- Activity feed provides stakeholders with expanded visibility into all operational events, to ensure governance and process controls.
Transposit believes that everyone across development and operations teams – regardless of development experience – should be able to create sophisticated human-in-the-loop automated workflows. Transposit bridges the operator experience gap with its new no-code runbook builder that allows any user to participate and add value.
Transposit’s flexible process orchestration platform guides teams on their journey to maturing their automation practices. Whether it’s runbook documentation or end-to-end automation, Transposit’s workflows can be shaped to fit the unique needs of every team. Rather than taking a traditional approach of mapping out entire flow diagrams, Transposit makes it possible for teams to build and automate pieces of their workflows in a more ad-hoc manner so that processes remain malleable and can be easily adapted whenever needed.
The Transposit platform gives teams the opportunity to use incremental automation to strengthen their trust in automation beginning with codifying documentation into human-in-the-loop runbooks that combine human guidance with automated actions. Teams can then easily identify additional steps that can be automated over time.
The platform’s new triggers help teams mature and expand their automation usage by connecting runbooks to external events. Users can enable triggers within runbooks for both internal and external events, resulting in accelerated, highly flexible, and event-driven response automation that blends both human and machine triggers.
The modern tech stack is more complex than ever before, leaving Ops teams overwhelmed and wading through a flood of events coming from an array of tools and services as they keep a watchful eye on dynamic cloud infrastructure. By using Transposit’s new activity feed, teams are given visibility into what’s happening across their services.
Transposit gives teams the ability to bring together and understand all the various moving parts throughout an operations pipeline within one knowledge stream. The activity feed allows teams to quickly determine the services that need their attention by pulling together important events across every tool such as alerts, requests, and CI/CD systems as well as high-level activity within the platform. Not only can teams see the activities taking place, but they can also access granular information about what is happening, who is taking certain actions, and what resulted from those actions. This full audit trail of both human and machine data provides the governance that operations teams need to ensure security and reliability across services.
After recovering from an incident, teams scramble to remember what exactly happened, which team members had participated, and the entire timeline of events. Transposit makes it easy to capture critical events throughout the course of an incident. The new customizable post-mortem export makes it easy to use that data for root cause analysis and ultimately drive continuous improvement.
“The new functionality we’ve added to our orchestration platform transforms the landscape for DevOps and IT Ops teams. Keeping applications up and running when the demand for digital is at an all time high is a monumental task. By easing the challenges that come with continuous change, we give engineers control back over their days while helping them succeed at their jobs. This is both healthy for individuals and great for business,” said Divanny Lamas, the CEO of Transposit. “We empower all team members – regardless of tooling expertise – to better collaborate and drive more value together.”
