New 'ElectricFlow Release' Provides Shared Visibility and Control Across Any Numbe of Traditional and Continuous Delivery Software Releases

Electric Cloud Launches 'ElectricFlow Release' for DevOps Automation

Electric Cloud (http://electric-cloud.com/), the leader in enterprise Continuous Delivery and DevOps automation, today announced a major new addition to its product line, ElectricFlow Release (http://electric-cloud.com/products/electricflow/release). ElectricFlow Release helps organizations speed application releases by streamlining and automating software deliveries into highly organized and well-choreographed release pipelines. For software teams adopting DevOps and Continuous Delivery, it replaces checklists and spreadsheets with a single, unified view across both traditional and Continuous Delivery style application releases to increase reliability, transparency and predictability while lowering risk.

To help organizations of all types migrate to DevOps and Continuous Delivery, Electric Cloud will offer ElectricFlow Release through a standard enterprise licensing option and, for smaller teams and initial projects, through a free, fully-functional community edition. To download the free version please visit: (http://electric-cloud.com/downloads/electricflow/communityedition/).

"DevOps and Continuous Delivery adoption often happens in pockets in the enterprise, increasing the frequency of releases that need to be promoted to production," said Steve Brodie, CEO for Electric Cloud. "Traditional release management processes are not designed to handle these more frequent and iterative software delivery approaches, and ElectricFlow Release makes each Continuous Delivery pipeline a repeatable, governed and standardized process."

Designed for production operations and IT release managers, ElectricFlow Release allows software delivery teams to collaborate, plan and execute all functions within the application lifecycle in a unified and highly automated fashion.  It provides shared control and visibility over the entire software delivery lifecycle, which results in more frequent and predictable software releases.

Amy DeMartine, senior analyst serving infrastructure and operations professionals for Forrester Research, agrees that release automation is vital. "Adoption of release automation is in its infancy, but it needs to grow up fast to support superior customer experiences by continually delivering quality interactions and applications," she wrote along with analyst Kurt Bittner in The Forrester WaveTM: Application Release Automation, Q2 2015. "Automating the release of applications is a key pain point for I&O organizations today." However, as noted earlier in the report, it is the "critical final step in the delivery pipeline of applications to improve the customer experience."

Marc Priolo, software configuration manager at Urban Science, says: "ElectricFlow Release will help us know exactly what software is installed where, and how it got there. This will reduce the risk of releasing the wrong version of the software to the wrong environment."

Core functionality of ElectricFlow Release includes:

  • Visual Pipelines: to model a reusable path to production across multiple stages and environments.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
