In our ongoing work to advance the interests of customers around adoption of Agile, DevOps and continuous delivery, the theme of evolving workflows to better suit human-scale work cycles often comes to the fore.
While it’s easy to say that build, test, release and monitoring capacities should feed into each other to promote continuous collaboration, realizing this vision in the form of integrated tooling is still no trivial feat. And it is further exacerbated by the reality that DevOps teams typically utilize a wide range of products built by a diverse set of providers, from larger players such as CA Technologies to open-source projects.
If the goal is to drive application lifecycle processes and supporting technology to better support human work cycles—along with accelerating organizational velocity and improving quality—somewhere in this domain of tooling integration there’s a need for relevant vendors to participate.
That work officially begins today.
At the Jenkins World 2016 conference this week, CA, along with a dozen other leading DevOps solutions providers and the DevOps Institute, announced the DevOps Express consortium. Joining us, along with CloudBees and Sonatype, which spearheaded this effort, are Atlassian, BlazeMeter, Chef, GitHub, Infostretch, JFrog, Puppet, Sauce Labs, SOASTA and SonarSource.
