Continuous Delivery and Release Automation for Manufacturing

The Opportunity

There is a continuous pressure in the manufacturing industry to produce more in a shorter period – to work harder, faster, and smarter. The process chain runs around the clock to keep up with demands for expansion, faster delivery, and innovation. To meet these requirements (and keep up with the competition), a wide variety of technologies have been adopted, including robotics, cloud computing, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), integration tools, project management software, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools. Better management is required to ensure high quality results from all these technologies.

Additionally, manufacturers have large amounts of data, company secrets, and sensitive information from customers, including partners, sub-contracts, and end users. Unfortunately, many vendors in the manufacturing industry have outdated security systems that leave them vulnerable to threats.

The Solution

The various software tools and technologies used in manufacturing must work together for better management, improved efficiency, and to ensure disparate teams are on the same page. This allows IT professionals to see the project statuses, release results, and analytics all on one dashboard. With FlexDeploy’s powerful automation capabilities and integration with tools across the toolchain, you can have better visibility into and control over your SDLC. As a result, you can see the benefits of your technology investments, including increased productivity, consistent deployment quality, managed data, easier decision-making, and controlled expenses.

Use FlexDeploy’s out-of-the-box support of CyberArk, HashiCorp Vault, Acunetix, SonarQube, Okta, Microsoft Azure AD, and more to make security and data quality a top priority.
