Electric Cloud Crafts Continuous Delivery
It’s simply not good enough anymore to deliver. Modern enterprises demand agility, scalability and performance as well as continuous software development. DevOps processes must be efficient, so when engineering or quality assurance is forced to wait a day or two for the proper environment to be in place that’s a problem.
Recently, I had the opportunity to meet with Electric Cloud CTO Anders Wallgren at Cloud Expo, where he described the most common issue today being firms trying to get control of software delivery from end to end. Twenty years ago services were siloed by dept, whereas today we are seeing companies setting up shared services. Electric Cloud steps in, creates an automation pipeline, and in doing so provides a scalable shared service that offers visibility.
Electric Cloud’s focus is on aiding the enterprise in a continuous delivery process, with tools to accelerate and automate. By providing the enterprise with scalable integrations, capable of optimizing and modernizing processes Electric Cloud is giving DevOps a well deserved boost.
For DevOps, Wallgren exclaimed, “The next iteration is continuous delivery.” Agile has, “taken root,” and is no longer controversial. He Continued to explain that Agile really focuses on development and Q&A – people and product, “and I think what a lot of people are working on now is software delivery.” To Wallgren, this next phase of development lifecycle management is the “last mile.”
The cloud allows greater freedom and control of lifecycle environment management. As we know, it is mission critical to have control over cycle times and a delivery process in place that is fast and repeatable. From lifting and moving a workload to standing an environment up on the fly and tearing it down when done, this is but a sample of what the cloud empowers firms like Electric Cloud to do.
And, because of the power of the cloud, engineers and Q&A aren’t wasting hours waiting for an environment to be in place.
Wallgren noted, “We help software companies get better at what they do…but we really allow these companies to get agile,” providing a scalable solution to not just optimize DevOps today but to provide the flexibility needed for the future.
Does your DevOps team deserve a boost?
