OpenMake Software has released Release Engineer, part of its Software Dynamic DevOps Suite. This product is described as an enterprise-scale application release automation (ARA) solution for complex multi-platform environments.
Formerly known as Deploy+, this product centralizes the management, configuration, and reuse of all "Release and Deploy elements" for developers. It enables users to define release standards that can be inherited and customized specifically for each project team.
It supports multi-tiered platforms with no reliance on any agent technology. It also boasts a domain structure for the sharing of release components and dependencies for reuse across teams. Developers will also note that this technology features roll forward logic for incremental release processing.
"An enterprise release automation solution requires a tool that is highly reusable, can support multiple platforms including both WebSphere and MS IIS, and allows the central teams to support more releases with less staff", explains Stephen King, CEO, OpenMake Software. "Release Engineer solves these problems delivering a domain-driven framework for sharing components and release modules coupled with an agentless technology that reduces the overhead associated with deploy solutions that require the management of hundreds, if not thousands, of end-point deploy agents."
Company CTO Steve Taylor says that OpenMake's management of his firm's product contributes at the application level, creating silos of information that cannot be shared.
