New strategic partnerships with Chef and Puppet demonstrate strength of CloudBees offering
Brussels, Belgium - May 21, 2014 - CloudBees, Inc., the enterprise continuous delivery leader, today announced the industry's first continuous delivery (CD) platform for enterprises, powered by Jenkins Continuous Integration and CloudBees technology. As organisations struggle to adapt to the relentless need for a faster, more agile approach to software delivery, Continuous Delivery is fast becoming the methodology of choice for accelerating software delivery and allowing businesses to remain competitive and get to market faster. The CloudBees Continuous Delivery Platform is the first continuous delivery solution that provides the openness and extensibility of Jenkins spanning both on-premise and cloud resources, with the high availability and security critical to today's enterprises.
Additionally, partnering with Chef Software and Puppet Labs, CloudBees has enhanced Jenkins traceability, giving development and DevOps personnel the ability to, for the first time, use Jenkins to trace application code changes, from development and deployment through to production.
As the tide of continuous delivery adoption grows dramatically, Jenkins - the open source Java-based continuous integration tool - is being selected as the automation platform of choice by enterprises. There are more than 80,000 active installations of Jenkins around the globe. Jenkins enables enterprises to evolve from simple automation of tasks to continuous integration, to, ultimately, continuous delivery at their own pace. Another key benefit of Jenkins for continuous delivery is the 800+ plugins that allow Jenkins to be tailored to the needs of the enterprise and integrate with the myriad of software lifecycle tools and technologies that may be in use.
"Businesses are under increasing pressure to create new value for their customers and partners, and an increasing proportion of business innovation is being delivered through software," said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees. "They need reliable processes to succeed, but traditional approaches to software development and delivery are riddled with inefficiencies that delay projects, drive up costs and hamper innovation. Using the CloudBees continuous delivery platform, powered by Jenkins, enterprises can eliminate friction in their development processes, creating a consistent and controlled environment that will give them a competitive edge in the marketplace."
The CloudBees continuous delivery platform is the industry's first CD platform available on-premise, in the cloud or in hybrid environments, providing configurations to meet multiple project needs. It bridges the worlds of developers, operations and business. Leveraging hybrid capabilities available from CloudBees, enterprises can gain transparent use of Jenkins on-premise and in the cloud, removing barriers to cloud adoption.
"Moving to the CloudBees continuous delivery platform turned out to be a game changer for us," said Mario Cruz, CTO and co-founder, Choose Digital, which developed and deployed its private label digital marketplace with CloudBees solutions. "We use CloudBees to manage our continuous delivery processes, enabling every team member to deliver incremental functionality while being accountable for his or her code. As a result, our software delivery efforts are aligned to the goals of the company and the continuous delivery process keeps us lean, focused and fast to market."
"Releasing software many times a day may sound like science fiction, but it's reality for a growing number of firms. Dramatically reduced cycle time will become the new normal, enabling more direct engagement with customers to deliver high-value experiences," wrote Kurt Bittner, principal analyst with Forrester Research. "Firms that can't deliver applications rapidly will find themselves left behind."

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
