Why You Need Enterprise-Grade Pipeline Orchestration Software


Software delivers where business demands. The process by which this happens has worked largely the same for years, but it's no longer good enough. Web and mobile applications have taught users to expect more, and enterprises simply can't stay competitive with the same unpredictable, lengthy, and inefficient release processes that barely support an update every few months. While Continuous Delivery offers a fast, streamlined way of delivering software, leading enterprises still struggle with how to scale an assortment of tools, processes, and steps.

  To benefit from Continuous Delivery, enterprises must focus on release pipeline orchestration. But cobbling together tools like Jenkins, Puppet, or Chef won't do the job. These tools will not scale with the enterprise and may actually increase the chances of even bigger pipeline problems emerging. What enterprises need is something designed for them—that is, a Pipeline Orchestrationpurpose-built, enterprise-grade release pipeline orchestration solution. Such a solution must include real-time visibility into release status and the ability to manage a mix of manual and automated tasks across technical and business teams. It must also provide end-to-end control and auditability as well as detailed intelligence that allows for continual improvement of the release process. For an in-depth look at the essentials elements, benefits, and ROI of enterprise-class release pipeline orchestration, check out our latest white paper, “Release Pipeline Orchestration: An Essential Practice for Continuous Delivery at Enterprise Scale.”   You can also read about XebiaLabs’ XL Release pipeline orchestration software here.
