Are you using a software change and configuration management (SCCM) tool?
If so, you might already be questioning whether or not you need a release automation tool and weighing up the potential benefits. So we’ve published a whitepaper to help you make this decision. In our latest whitepaper, Integrating Software Change and Configuration Management with Release Automation, Nolio’s Systems Engineering Manager Deniz Yar explores this issue in depth.
Mr. Yar first of all examines the considerable value of SCCM tools, with a special focus on PTC Integrity. If you’re already using SCCM tools, you’re probably familiar with the benefits – such as their ability to facilitate traceability and accountability to the process of configuring, building and deploying applications.
However, there are drawbacks and limitations if you use them on their own. Most solutions today require a manual transition from the development tool set to a running instance of that application in an environment. Mr. Yar explores the flaws of this approach, which include human bottlenecks and a high susceptibility to manual errors. He shows how you can eliminate all of these flaws by integrating a SCCM solution with an application release automation platform. This integration can increase the efficiency of the overall application lifecycle by over 80%.
He cites the following benefits that you can enjoy:
- Faster Time to Market
- Streamlined Processes
- Less Errors
- Enhanced Auditing and Compliance
- Ability to Adhere to Agile Approaches
Taking the SCCM tool PTC Integrity and Nolio’s application release automation platform as an example, Mr. Yar shows you how to achieve all of these benefits through integration.
