ThoughtWorks Studios "Go's" for Release Management

ThoughtWorks Studios has announced Go, an Agile release management platform that allows organizations to incrementally automate the entire build, test and deployment process and release software faster and more reliably. Go enables Continuous Delivery, which combines automation and engineering rigor with a emphasis on collaboration to break down organizational silos that segregate development, QA, and IT operations.

Go helps drive Continuous Delivery by providing organizations with a standard platform to automate, manage and control the entire build, deploy and release processes. It is a single system of record for managing and tracing each application’s lifecycle from check-in to release, thus providing visibility into the production readiness of the entire software portfolio. The result is automated releases that are rapid and reliable and can be self-serviced at the push of a button.

Unique features of Go that enable Continuous Delivery include:

  • Environments: this first-of-its-kind capability lets organizations see what version of each application is in each environment, audit back to the source, and perform one-click deployments of any version of software.
  • Parallel Test Intelligence: speeds up tests by running them in parallel on a grid. Go’s unique test intelligence lets organizations see exactly which tests broke, which check-in broke them, and who was responsible, even when they are run across a grid.
  • New UI for the DevOps world: enables easy centralized management of large numbers of projects and machines for both developers and IT operations.
  • Templates: allows for managing large numbers of projects within an Agile ALM environment. Templates allow organizations to manage branches and define re-usable workflow.

The Go Community edition is available as a free download directly from the ThoughtWorks Studios website, while the full-version, commercial Go Enterprise is available via license.
