Electric Cloud Enables End-to-End Application Release Automation at Scale

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

DevOps and continuous delivery are all the rage. That’s because IT organizations must develop capabilities that enable them to quickly adapt their application stack to meet rapidly changing needs. But as with most things, DevOps is relatively easy to adopt initially — and exceedingly difficult to maintain at scale.

Electric Cloud’s ability to help organizations achieve scale is rooted in three core elements of their approach: end-to-end integration, collaboration enablement and a commitment to the mission-critical surety.

They provide a single, continuously integrated platform that enables organizations to fully manage their pipelines end-to-end. More importantly, they recognize that at scale, multiple teams need to collaborate to manage thousands of projects across numerous environments. Their flexible and integrated approach to access controls coupled with other collaboration features, allows enterprise organizations to manage at scale.

Finally, they designed their most recent 6.5 release to make continuous delivery at scale safer and more reliable by introducing advanced deployment patterns, automated discovery, and full stack dependency mapping. The result is a solution that can help enterprise organizations realize the full promise of DevOps and continuous delivery in the real world.
