The Silicon Review
To win in today’s markets, organizations are making Big Bets on DevOps as one of their key strategies to drive agility and innovation. However, development teams’ agile pace of software delivery and new technology adoption has outstripped the ability of operations teams to keep up. This cadence and skills mismatch limits innovation, jeopardizes transformation, and puts teams in a constant state of release anxiety. Electric Cloud’s Adaptive Release Orchestration platform helps organizations like E*TRADE, HPE, Intel and Lockheed Martin confidently release new applications and adapt to change at any speed demanded by the business, with the analytics and insight to measure, track, and improve their results. Releasing software on business demands is the new secret weapon. To do that you need more than a tool vendor – you need a partner that can provide a roadmap to success. Electric Cloud knows every DevOps journey is unique and different and that is why it has been successful so far.
As the frequency, volume and complexity of application releases increases, teams struggle to collect and report on metrics from the myriad of DevOps tools, environments and processes involved. Understanding the status of individual features or stories in a release requires manual scraping of data from various tools, and error-prone spreadsheet analysis to accurately map data points back to their pipeline stages.

Training and Professional Services
Switching on Continuous Delivery is a lot easier when working with an experienced partner. Electric Cloud has been helping organizations automate and accelerate software delivery for over a decade.
Digital transformation is as much about the right skills as it is about the right tools and processes. Electric Cloud University (ECU), in partnership with DevOps Institute (DOI), is a subscription-based training and certification program that provides the skills needed to implement and scale DevOps in your organization successfully. ECU augments its traditional on-site classroom-based training.
Coordinating release approvals, environments and deployment activities across multiple teams and shared infrastructure is a logistical challenge. Organizations want a way to manage traditional releases and CD pipelines in a scalable, auditable and predictable way and predictability goes a long way towards eliminating release anxiety.
Consistently deploying applications into standardized environments is one of the best ways to achieve application rollout success, but most teams still rely on hard-coded scripts and manual instructions. App Support and Ops teams want to eliminate manual and error-prone deployment processes to achieve the velocity needed to deliver any software into any environment – especially into production, where the value is created
With Continuous Delivery, Agile, CI and DevOps practices and tools transform the way software is delivered by continually reducing the cost and risk of application deployment and release. Organizations that want to adopt Continuous Delivery need to allow small check-ins to be verified by automated builds and tests so teams can reduce risk, and release more often.
Moving to a microservices architecture using Docker or Rocket promises to provide deployment flexibility, giving organizations the ability to move applications through the lifecycle in a standardized fashion. But building and inventorying microservices containers, knowing what versions are deployed where and understanding the dependencies is hard.
