In the age of instant consumer gratification, businesses are turning to DevOps (software development and operations) methodologies to catch up to more nimble competitors and transform into real-time application deployment machines. But most development organizations quickly become overwhelmed with the numerous tools, specialized skills, and cultural shifts needed to be DevOps proficient. As a result, they remain stuck in the early stages of DevOps maturity or don’t know how or where to start. Meanwhile, more agile enterprises continuously release new software and features to meet the latest customer demands, leaving the competition behind.
Now available in Pega® Platform, Pega Deployment Manager helps organizations kickstart their DevOps efforts and immediately drive continuous integration, deployment, and delivery (CI/CD) for their Pega applications. Pega Deployment Manager guides teams through all stages of agile deployment – from unit testing and packaging, to staging and testing – into a consolidated visual roadmap driven by proven best practices. Without any coding, DevOps-enabled teams can progress new apps and capabilities to the next stage in the pipeline with a single click, making it simple and easy to bring software into production.
Rooted in Pega’s 30-year leadership in no-code application development, Pega Deployment Manager makes DevOps accessible for any organization that wants to:
- Speed time to market with out-of-the-box, automated DevOps – Pega provides a built-in DevOps pipeline that automates CI/CD for organizations starting their DevOps journeys. Developers can check-in, test, and deploy updates to their Pega apps with just a push of a button. All the heavy lifting happens automatically, in the background, with no coding required. This allows organizations to overcome skills deficiencies, reduce manual errors, and continuously ship better software faster with less effort and at lower costs.
- Manage application delivery in a single view – The unified dashboard brings together all DevOps best practices – including all associated tools – in a single visual dashboard. Businesses can track progress of their application builds through the CI/CD pipeline from development to production.
- Tap into the power of third-party, industry-standard DevOps tools – Pega’s open DevOps approach allows seamless integration with Jenkins, jFrog, Gradle, and other best-of-breed DevOps tools. As an organization’s DevOps skills mature, they can easily overlay industry standard tools on top of Pega Deployment Manager, ensuring Pega can grow and extend along with the organization’s capabilities and needs.
