XebiaLabs Releases Updates to XL Deploy, XL Release, to Continuously Deliver Value to Software Releases

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- To provide better insight into the Continuous Delivery process for DevOps managers and end users, XebiaLabs today announced new features and enhancements to its XL Deploy and XL Release products. Included are updates to its dashboards and reporting functions designed to improve feedback on the entire software build and release process. XebiaLabs provides software delivery automation solutions to agile teams looking to speed time-to-market with their software production cycles.

XL Deploy and XL Release respectively provide plug-and-play application release automation, and enterprise release pipeline orchestration for DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Both are components of XL Platform, which also comprises XL Test for Agile test management and analysis, and XL Scale for on-demand provisioning and scaling of full environments.

What's New in XL Release

Configurable Value Stream Analysis
XL Release dashboards have been expanded to include a new, configurable Value Stream Analysis that automatically highlights areas of your pipelines and release processes that are prime candidates for improvement.

"One stop shop" view of release and Continuous Delivery pipeline performance
XL Release also adds a new dashboard that provides a "one stop shop" view of current release and pipeline performance, risk and efficiency.

Webhooks and more automation plugins
Several additional automation plugins including ServiceNow and Splunk, have also been added to XL Release. XL Release also now features new smart webhook support to quickly automate any target system with an HTTP or REST API.

What's New in XL Deploy

Easy configuration and integration with Cool Tech
Already designed to make it easy to add support for new middleware tools, the XL Deploy plugin API has gained additional extensibility by including a new, fully backwards-compatible, rule DSL on top of the existing plugin API. This makes it even easier to configure XL Deploy for your existing environment and extend it to support the latest and greatest "cool tech" in a couple of lines of XML, without coding.

Customizable views & dashboards
XL Deploy also includes a preview version of the new UI extension framework, which will allow users to seamlessly integrate their own views and dashboards into the user interface.

Tackle Configuration Drift
To solve common configuration drift problems in several types of middleware environments, XL Deploy now provides an additional set of advanced reports.

The reports feature smart container matching and attribute filtering designed to highlight what is important, avoiding the time spent running through thousands of irrelevant default properties.

The new feature can compare target environments directly and also tracks discrepancies between XL Deploy's repository and the live environment. As an added bonus, the report interface introduces the first HTML5 UI components to XL Deploy, based on the new UI extension framework.

XL Deploy already supports comprehensive, extensible discovery for WebSphere and other middleware, as well as comparison and versioning of all configuration items in its repository making it now the most advanced solution for configuration drift on the market.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our perso...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analytics that bring its full value to the enterprise. The era of Big Data and "Little Big Data" has arri...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examining how the Internet and the cloud has allowed for the democratization of IT, resulting in an i...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and on the other side, organizations that will find themselves as roadkill on the technology highway.

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cloud, and create a digital technology platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mark Casey, Presiden...

To leverage Continuous Delivery, enterprises must consider impacts that span functional silos, as well as applications that touch older, slower moving components. Managing the many dependencies can cause slowdowns. See how to achieve continuous delivery in the enterprise.
Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negatively impact security. Container-to-container communication should not be in clear text, yet it is. ...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expected and enhance your brand?
