DevOps in the Cloud: Software Release Management
Forward thinking Business and IT organizations realize that accelerating application delivery is critical in making their enterprise more agile and competitive. DevOps in the cloud removes bottlenecks, automates and manages software release and improves efficiency across the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
Check out this infographic to learn more about DevOps and how it’s accelerating application release.
Deliver Cloud Applications and Platforms at the Speed of Market Change
CSC's Cloud DevOps solution automates and governs key aspects of the Dev-to-Ops lifecycle. DevOps in the cloud increases the speed and frequency of software releases without sacrificing the quality and reliability of software in production.
- On-demand provisioning of platforms
- Embedding standard operating environments upstream for earlier Dev and Test use
- Automating application and service configuration
- Managing security and operational SLAs across each role in the SDLC
For Development and Testing Teams
Leverage High Fidelity, On-Demand Environments
Perform your dev and test work on high fidelity, production-like environments that are available, self-service and on-demand. Don’t worry about configuring application stacks and administering underlying infrastructure and platforms. Spend more time coding.
- Enable rapid development and test cycles
- Eliminate IT resource delays
- Enable developers to remain focused on coding and QA professionals on testing
- Compress time to market with ready-to-use platforms that are immediately available
- Integrate with your existing dev and test tool chain.
- Implement automated release management capabilities to promote code from development to test using your approval and acceptance processes, supported by automatic provisioning/de-commissioning of application deployment

For Operations Teams
Govern and Control Common Application Platforms
Simplify the management of diverse, distributed dev and test teams with policies to control access rights, deployment decisions, standard operating environment configuration management, security zones, geographic constraints, resource limits, regulatory compliance, and more with extensible policy-based governance and security controls. Use Agility Platform to monitor all cloud-based resource consumption, apply custom pricing rules, and accrue charges to projects, teams, or individuals as desired for cost visibility and control.
- Orchestrate the on-demand deployment of complex multi-tier applications, standard operating environments, policy-driven security and governance configurations, and more.
- Create custom, on-demand platforms based on SAP, IBM WebSphere, webLogic, Microsoft .NET, and Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings like Cloud Foundry or Hadoop.
- Customize environments for the specific needs of each SDLC stage
Customizable Workflows and Tool Chain Automation in a Cloud DevOps environment
Streamline and automate across the development-to-operations lifecycle. Keep pace with faster change by automating and standardizing tasks that are manually configured today.
- Reduce TCO for business critical applications by 42%
- Increase time to market by 97% for provisioning standardized infrastructure services
- Gain 78% faster time to market for custom enterprise platforms
- Deploy multi-tier complex applications in 10 minutes instead of weeks
