The future founders gathered to address the challenges of the software development lifecycle. At that time, it was difficult to deliver high quality software quickly. The commercial tools on the market were too complex and supported only the largest enterprises. Too many separate tools were required to support the cornerstones of build automation, deployment automation, and release orchestration, which made solutions costly and time consuming. The team begin to design and develop a DevOps platform.
Flexagon, LLC was established in early 2014 and the first version of FlexDeploy was released in October. It solved all the problems the team had observed. FlexDeploy V1 was a comprehensive and integrated solution with robust support for build and deployment automation.
Businesses of all sizes began to implement FlexDeploy, including Pella, Charter Manufacturing, and Dell. Success led to growth mainly in the USA. FlexDeploy helped customers achieve automation with technologies such as Oracle E-Business Suite and Fusion Middleware.
Flexagon was included in the Forrester Wave for Application Release Automation, a significant accomplishment after being in the market for under two years. Ongoing recognition by customers and validation by the analyst community helped fuel growth in Europe, Asia, and Australia. Development in cloud IaaS and PaaS established new areas where FlexDeploy could provide benefits.
Release Pipeline features were added to round out the major capabilities in the FlexDeploy platform. Flexagon started building its partner program with global System Integrators and regional consulting companies. FlexDeploy support expanded significantly to include areas of growing interest, such as database, security, containers, microservices, and APIs.
