Optimize Continuous Delivery Pipelines
Coordinating complex release trains at enterprise scale requires balancing the pace of change with the controls needed for application health and stability. Delivery teams need to optimize the flow of code through each phase of a release by removing constraints and increasing visibility of fast moving Continuous Delivery pipelines.
Improve coordination and collaboration
Reduce Dev/Test cycle time
Many organizations spend more time getting large, complex enterprise environments up and ready for testing than they do writing code. Faster QA team access to test environments improves cycle time. Plutora highlights when dev has a new build available, increasing test team responsiveness and eliminating the delay in finding out when new code is ready for testing.
Monitor product quality of multi-pipeline releases
With Plutora, release managers can quickly view test status and results in real time to continually monitor product quality and evaluate schedule risk at each phase of the CD pipeline. Centralized dashboards provide visibility of multiple release trains across the portfolio. Easily drill down to gain deeper insights of automated and manual test results and defect rates.
Ensure accurate test coverage
As dev team velocity increases, test teams have a hard time tracking the change requests associated with a new build, making it difficult to accurately assign the test cases necessary to ensure accurate test coverage. Plutora automatically links change IDs with each new build so test teams can quickly identify and assign appropriate test cases.
Speed progression of code along the delivery pipeline
- Identify when new code is available for testing.
- Understand what changes new code contains.
- Facilitate test environments on-demand.
Maintain visibility of fast moving CD pipelines at scale
- Assess new code quality as builds progress along the delivery pipeline.
- Identify impediments and process inefficiencies.
- Establish traceability from inception to production.
On-demand deployment to test environments
Don’t make fast moving test teams wait for a test environment to become available. Plutora links Jenkins jobs to test environments, where a builds are triggered on-demand to expedite the hand-off of new code from dev into test environments.
“Plutora helped us produce 11 enterprise releases this year—up from 4 major and 4 minor releases 2 years ago—with only half the staff.”
“We knew our delivery requirements and productivity needed to ramp up very quickly. That’s why we ended up choosing Plutora.”
“I can save 50–70% of my time by looking at Plutora’s comments module instead of emails. It’s awesome.”
