Continuous delivery needs release orchestration that scales
Organizations look to continuous delivery to deliver software to customers faster and more reliably. Release orchestration plays a vital part by automating software delivery stages, such as continuous integration, testing, security, and application deployment. However, organizations face several key challenges when orchestrating their release processes. First, individual teams may each use different release processes for each application, environment, or target technology. Also, integrating DevOps tools often has a steep learning curve. Finally, some manual tasks may be difficult or impossible to automate.
Digital.ai Release (formerly XebiaLabs XL Release) orchestrates and accelerates the software delivery process. It adds a layer of governance to each release, ensuring that the right tasks happen at the right time, every time — whether done automatically by tools or manually by teams. Digital.ai Release orchestrates the entire software delivery toolchain, providing the backbone for DevSecOps. And it allows teams to model delivery processes in a way that maximizes reliability and reusability.

Orchestrate advanced software delivery pipelines across tools and teams
Orchestrate the entire end-to-end software delivery pipeline from build, testing, security, provisioning, to deployment. Optimize and automate the flow of value across the software delivery process, creating a release process that ensures the right tasks are executed at the right time, every time.
Improve software delivery reliability and predictability
Reusable pipeline templates promote best practices and enable consistency from release to release. Standardizing pipelines across applications, environments, and teams improves stability and predictability. Shared templates ensure that software delivery processes meet corporate requirements for testing, security, and regulatory compliance.
Balance enterprise control with development team autonomy
Maintaining control and ensuring software compliance does not to be at the expense of development flexibility. Digital.ai Release allows organizations to enforce standards through governance, while teams can choose to integrate with hundreds of popular DevOps tools that they know and love.
Predict and prevent release failures
Failure risk is assessed automatically based on customizable and configurable factors. Risky releases are highlighted, bringing potential delays and failures to everyone’s attention so they can take preventative action. Risk is continually reassessed as releases run, so you always know the latest status.
Improve efficiency and reduce change lead time
Use data analytics to pinpoint process bottlenecks and uncover new opportunities for pipeline improvement and optimization. Contextual insights inform decisions that reduce software time to market, so you can deliver value to your customers faster than ever before.
Reduce audit effort and cost
Comprehensive, automated audit reporting reduces the time and effort that teams spend gathering data from across the DevOps toolchain and compiling it for IT auditors. A push-button, exportable audit report shows who did what, when, where, and how for every release that runs, whether it succeeded or failed.
View real-time status and historical data
Real-time dashboards make it easy to see the status of software delivery pipelines, highlighting the progress of critical releases and any potential risks. Data visualizations enable teams to view the details of past releases to evaluate the health of their release pipelines and opportunities for improvement.
Easy for everyone to use
Whether a manager or developer, work in the mode that you prefer. Business stakeholders can enjoy a friendly user interface while tech gurus can define and maintain all configurations as code. With extensive APIs and a lightning-fast command-line interface, it is easy to apply GitOps best practices. Regardless of their role, users from across the organization can see the same release status, dashboards, and reports.
