CollabNet Announces Innovative New Platform That Provides Continuous Visibility And Feedback Across DevOps-Driven Application Delivery
CollabNet DevOps Lifecycle Manager represents an evolution in software development lifecycle management -- connecting tools and processes, providing workflow automation and KPI data that can reveal risk and improve quality
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- (DevOps Enterprise Summit Table #19) -- CollabNet® ( www.collabnet.com), a global leader in enterprise software development and delivery solutions that help customers create high-quality applications at speed, today announced CollabNet DevOps Lifecycle Manager (DLM). This platform advances DevOps with innovation that connects software development with operations and the business in several new ways.
CollabNet DLM improves processes by providing traceability and visibility to the entire software development lifecycle including across DevOps tool chains. At the operational level, it enables strong business decisions by providing insightful KPI reports across the entire lifecycle from planning to operations. CollabNet DLM also increases efficiency by automating and orchestrating processes. The innovations in CollabNet DLM overcome tool and process silos and the limited visibility and weak operational support that affect quality for DevOps-driven application delivery. Ultimately, CollabNet DLM delivers a level of transparency that enables everyone to make informed decisions based on business priorities. The product uses operational data to provide an intelligent correlation and traceability capability to enable new levels of decision making; KPI data, for example, that can reveal whether hidden issues in a software release would cause the number of service desk tickets to increase. Because CollabNet DLM collects metrics from the tools and activities from the chained associations, it can surface powerful reports. A single pane of glass allows viewers to review metrics such as: features vs. incidents vs. releases vs. time-to-fix. The real-time visibility makes it possible to course-correct in near real-time, expedite quality-issue resolution, and shorten cycle times via automation. This is just one example of what makes this a next generation DevOps solution. "DevOps Lifecycle Manager from CollabNet is a significant step forward for companies seeking to automate the software lifecycle from start to finish," says Julie Craig, analyst at EMA Research. "It integrates data from the wide variety of tool sets underlying the lifecycle, giving customers end-to-end traceability and monitoring, spanning the tasks and roles of both Dev and Ops. These functionalities make DLM a compelling asset for enterprises managing a large number of tools, projects and people." "This is a watershed moment for CollabNet. We have worked with customers, industry analysts, and partners to build a DevOps platform that bridges Agile concepts into IT operations; the work is based on our years of helping the world's largest organizations manage the increasingly complex software delivery lifecycle," says Flint Brenton, CEO at CollabNet. "When I look at CollabNet DLM I see a flexible orchestrator for enterprise DevOps teams that provides insights for better decision making by collecting, tracking, managing and, most importantly, providing comprehensive contextual data on processes and tools—all done in a way never before seen in the industry. It is not unreasonable for me to say that CollabNet DLM elevates DevOps to a new level, bringing software development into the enterprise fold unlike any other product on the market today can do," Brenton says.
