Automate deployments for speed and agility, quality and cost improvements
Deliver better quality software faster
Consistently deploying applications across standardized environments is a must-have for achieving speed and quality of application delivery. Ironically, most teams still rely on hard-coded scripts and manual activities. Development, Operations, and Release Management teams want to eliminate error-prone and time consuming manual and scripted deployment processes to achieve high velocity and scale, and keep up with customer and business demands.

Before Deployment Automation
|Slow and error-prone changes across all environments, leading to unhappy IT leaders, Business, and Customers.|
|Manual activities and script development/maintenance is costly, reducing the time spent on activities which directly contribute to business value.|
|Deployments into test and production environments are error-prone, negatively impacting business results and increasing the time spent troubleshooting and rectifying deployment related outages.|
|Employee satisfaction tanks because developers and other highly-skilled professionals spend time on lower-level activities which do not utilize their skills.|
|Poor visibility to changes and too much time spent figuring out what’s deployed where, when changes were made, and who made the changes.|
After Deployment Automation
|Increased speed and agility of software delivery results in the ability to deliver consistently, more often, and reduce the feedback cycle.|
|Development, Operations, and Supporting teams can focus their talents and energy on applications and services versus lower-level tooling and manual activities.|
|Automated deployments reduce errors, time spent troubleshooting, and the negative impact of outages across test and production environments.|
|Employee satisfaction and retention improve significantly. Development and IT professionals do what they do best, and avoid the stressful nights and weekends dealing with production releases and issues.|
|Visibility across the pipeline means IT teams have the information they need at their fingertips.|
