Ce livre blanc explique pourquoi les plates-formes d’automatisation de la mise en production et du déploiement des applications deviennent toujours plus essentielles pour les départements IT dans les multinationales. Il analyse les exigences spécifiques auxquelles une plate-forme de ce type doit satisfaire afin d’être efficace et de générer un retour sur investissement important.
Cet article examine deux approches du Zero Touch Deployment : une solution basée sur les scripts et une plate-forme d’automatisation de la mise en production. Il indique comment chacune de ces approches peut résoudre les principaux défis technologiques et organisationnels face auxquels se trouvent les organisations agiles lorsqu’elles décident d’implémenter un système de déploiement automatique.
Gartner’s Continuous Delivery Automation Magic Quadrant (MQ) analyzes the current market solutions and their effectiveness in responding to the demands of the modern business. The MQ is created on a tool’s ‘ability to execute’ and its ‘completeness of vision.’
When assessing CA Continuous Delivery Automation, Gartner highlights its ability to ‘provide scalability, resilience, security and enterprise management connectivity.’ The analysis also goes much deeper to cover the strengths, weaknesses and various nuances of all the automation products on the market.
In the 26-criteria evaluation of continuous delivery and release automation (CDRA) providers, we identified the 15 most significant — Atlassian, CA technologies, Chef Software, Clarive, CloudBees, electric Cloud, Flexagon, Hewlett packard enterprise (Hpe), IBM, Micro Focus, Microsoft, puppet, Red Hat, VMware, and Xebialabs — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. We focused on core features, including modeling, deploying, managing, governing, and visualizing pipelines, and on each vendor’s ability to match a strategy to these features. this report helps infrastructure and operations (I&o) professionals make the right choice when looking for CDRA solutions for their development and operations (Devops) automation.
Application release automation (ARA) tools enable best practices in deploying and promoting applicationrelated artifacts, properties, configurations and even data across an application lifecycle in a safe, predictable and repeatable manner. Gartner reports that using an ARA tool is key to enabling DevOps and achieving continuous delivery.
Wikipedia also defines five dimensions of scalability that can apply to ARA tools:
• Administrative scalability
• Functional scalability
• Geographic scalability
• Load scalability
• Generational scalability
This white paper will explain how each of these criteria is relevant when choosing an ARA product that is capable of scaling along with the growth of your enterprise.

Freeform Dynamics Executive Briefing Guide - Orchestrating the DevOps Tool Chain: An enterprise-level approach to continuous delivery.
Dale Vile says that business stakeholders are increasingly looking for faster and more frequent delivery of high-impact, high-quality output from IT teams. DevOps is an approach designed to enable the rapid and continuous delivery of value to the business to support the needs of the digital world, he adds. Open source software tools can help organizations adopt this DevOps approach but can cause efficiency, complexity and scalability issues, so Dale believes it is helpful to create a consistent orchestration layer using an enterprise class release automation solution.
In today’s application economy, everyone is in the software business. Auto makers are putting Wi-Fi hotspots in their cars. Watches are trading gears for motherboards. Even
soda fountains have evolved from dumb machines into instrumented devices with touch-screen user interfaces.
This digital transformation is changing the way applications are developed, tested, moved through environments and released into production—and it’s putting new demands on IT teams with which they’re struggling to keep up.
At a high level, this is because the application delivery systems and processes at many enterprises were put in place when IT only had to push out an annual or semi-annual release. But as market pressures and executive mandates have forced teams to deliver innovations faster and more frequently, a new set of development, testing, automation and customer challenges have appeared—acting as obstacles that stand between you and your digital transformation goals.

In an age where your users demand no-fail experience, continuous testing has become a mission critical component for engineering teams of all sizes. However, while this topic was once discussed at lower levels, the conversation has made it all the way to the C-suite. No matter your industry, if your team isn’t thinking about testing at a high level, then there is a chance that you are missing out on revenue due to flawed app functionality, delayed releases and slowed innovation. It is important to understand the business benefits of continuous testing and automation to avoid these outcomes, and make the changes necessary to set your applications up for success.
This white paper discusses why application release and deployment automation platforms are becoming increasingly vital for IT operations in global enterprises and explores the specific requirements of such a platform in order for it to prove beneficial, and effective, and offer a substantial return on investment.
