CollabNet and UC4 Software have announced the availability of CollabNet Deploy with UC4. CollabNet Deploy with UC4 is integrated within the TeamForge project workspace for centralized access to the extended toolset, and is offered as a priced option. Elements pertaining to automating release and deployment are available for TeamForge associations, providing end-to-end traceability.
The joint DevOps platform speeds up software delivery and reduces costs by offering automation and collaboration to business, development and IT stakeholders. It automates the entire development-through-deployment process within on-premise and external cloud environments – including code, build, test, release, deployment and IT automation – to achieve continuous, reliable application releases.
“Since announcing our partnership last November, we have worked closely with UC4 to deliver a DevOps platform that blends the best in application lifecycle management and IT process automation to leapfrog what we see as limited, developer-centric solutions,” said Jim Ensell, chief marketing and strategy officer for CollabNet. “With CollabNet Deploy, IT organizations can bring business stakeholders into the DevOps process, as those are the people dealing with the risk associated with frequent deployments, including consumer and public scrutiny, and the overall performance of applications that run the business.”
Wesley Pullen, VP Global ARA Technologies for UC4, added: “As DevOps continues to mature our clients are increasingly looking for technical and service-based solutions to help with every step of the deployment. Our joint platform is impressive in offering customers a solution that has previously not been available.”
CollabNet Deploy with UC4 supports CollabNet’s strategic approach to modern software development and delivery – presented through its vision for Enterprise Cloud Development (ECD). ECD is the evolution of collaborative and distributed Agile development that enables enterprises to embrace software development, deployment, and DevOps across on-premise and cloud environments at a pace they are comfortable with. The blueprint, available at http://www.collab.net/solutions, consists of five steps that organizations can take to fully leverage the latest processes and methodologies (including Agile), commercial and open source tools, and hybrid cloud environments.
