SOA Software Brings Collaboration and Approvals to DevOps Automation

AWS re:Invent 2014 – SOA Software, an API Management and Cloud Integration leader that helps businesses accelerate their digital transformation by securely extending their reach across multiple channels, announced that the latest release for Lifecycle Manager offers extensive new capabilities to assist and manage DevOps automation. SOA Software Lifecycle Manager now ships with prebuilt integration for Jenkins and TeamCity. Customers can use these new integrations to define and implement approval processes and enforce consistency and repeatability in the software delivery and DevOps pipeline.

DevOps, a growing trend in the enterprise, unifies the two previously separate work areas of software development and IT operations. Now, with the prevalence of cloud-based software, agile development methodologies, and continuous integration of frequent code updates, developers and operations must essentially work as a single team. One of the fundamental requirements for establishing Continuous Delivery and DevOps automation is the implementation of an automated approval system that enforces collaboration between Dev and Ops team, with appropriate definition of key metrics as well as automated collection of these metrics from the various tools involved.

“Mobile first and digital transformation initiatives have served as catalysts in stimulating adoption of agile development and continuous integration methodologies to speed delivery to market,” said Brent Carlson, SVP Engineering of SOA Software. “The new release of SOA Software Lifecycle Manager brings enhanced collaboration and shared metrics visibility across Dev and Ops teams, to ensure automated application deployment and enforce functional testing and product sign-offs.”

The latest release of Lifecycle Manager provides prebuilt integration with Jenkins and TeamCity. Customers can use these integrations to define and implement approval processes over DevOps activities and pipelines such as version control, code quality, provisioning of infrastructure resources and platforms, application deployment functional testing, and production sign-off. Lifecycle Manager defines the appropriate meta-data that needs to be captured at each point in the development, build and deployment lifecycle, automates the workflows and enforces collaboration and human approvals.

Lifecycle Manager, when integrated with Jenkins, TeamCity and other Continuous Delivery tools, enables a completely automated delivery process with automated approval checkpoints to ensure that production deployments do not adversely impact business.
