Shortcut, the collaborative home for modern software teams, announced new Team-to-Workflow functionality.
XebiaLabs announced version 6.0 of its DevOps solution for release pipeline orchestration and deployment automation.
XebiaLabs software automates, orchestrates and analyzes the most complex release pipelines in an enterprise’s software delivery environment, empowering teams to accelerate software delivery and, at the same time, improve product quality and decrease risk.
With DevOps adoption expanding across the enterprise, this latest version of the XebiaLabs DevOps platform helps large organizations simplify and better manage the growing complexity of their DevOps initiatives. This new version introduces multi-functional release folders and flexible release tags to increase manage ability and scalability, as well as intelligent dashboards that improve visibility into release pipelines and facilitate compliance.
“As enterprises conclude that their software applications have become their most valuable assets, we’ve seen the adoption of DevOps processes in general — and ourDevOps platform in particular — skyrocket. This new release will help large organizations scale their DevOps practices across virtually any application stack orIT landscape, from Mainframes to Containers. Teams can self-organize, improve software delivery and gain the required visibility into the performance and risk of their software release process,” said XebiaLabs CEO Derek Langone.
XebiaLabs 6.0 Release Highlights:
- Multi-functional Release Folders – using the new folders feature, companies can easily organize, manage and secure release information across hundreds of teams, applications and releases. IT can manage the release process in one central location and provide reusable release templates globally for all teams. Role-based access control secures data and gives individual teams the flexibility to access their data alone with an uncluttered view.
- Flexible Release Tags – users now have the option to classify tasks in a release with keywords using customizable tags. This simple yet highly flexible functionality allows teams to easily group or filter related parts of a release, such as security tasks, database tasks, deployment tasks or anything else that helps them better understand and optimize the release.
- More Powerful Dashboards for Compliance and Security – dashboards include new capabilities to help teams quickly identify and report on related parts of large, complex releases. Dashboard components, or “tiles”, allow for simple yet powerful reporting options on important dimensions of a release, including security and compliance, two areas that all too often have relied on manual data-gathering and reporting.
- Enhanced Productivity for Large-scale Deployments – users also will enjoy optimizations such as more flexible dependency management, performance improvements and better system continuity with hot standby. Teams will gain better control over deployments to remote data centers and more visibility into the remote deployment process.
Version 6.0 of XL Release and XL Deploy will be available for download on November 9.
