XebiaLabs: Addressing the Enterprise Challenges of DevOps

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

There are ample business drivers pushing enterprise organizations toward the full-fledged adoption of DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Improved speed to market, greater organizational agility, and improved operational efficiency have become the baseline requirement for the modern IT organization.

Instead, they must adopt DevOps across a large IT organization and within the midst of a highly complex environment that mixes legacy and modern technologies.

XebiaLabs‘ entire focus is on helping enterprise organizations address their unique challenges when adopting DevOps so they can realize faster time to market, reduced cycle times and improved productivity. They have designed their Application Release Automation platform to address three distinct sets of needs unique to the enterprise:

  • DevOps needs: providing for automation, efficiency, speed and error reduction
  • Enterprise needs: managing integrations, complex processes, heterogeneous environments, compliance and security
  • Management/Business needs: enabling visibility, analytics, decision support and feedback
