CloudBees brings first Continuous Delivery platform to enterprises, powered by Jenkins

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."[1]

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
