CA Release Automation Review

It's helped us with a faster ramp-up time, although it needs better integrations with new open source tools.

Valuable Features

Usability – it’s good for developers who are both technical and non-technical. This has been particularly helpful for us.

Improvements to My Organization

Helps with a faster ramp-up time. This is the best way in which it has helped us for sure. Otherwise, it's got the standard features for an automation tool.

Room for Improvement

  • More stability and customizations
  • Better integration with new open source tools
  • Even more stability for the new version

Stability Issues

We use two versions – the older version (4.4) is very unstable, while the newer one (5.5) is much better. So we went from many issues to far less.

Scalability Issues

We are not able to scale it beyond what was initially defined on the infra-bases, so I can't fully answer.

Customer Service and Technical Support

They're helpful for lots of things. Never had issues with them.

Previous Solutions

We had always used an in-house tool.

Initial Setup

It was already setup when I joined.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at Atlassian, but CA has been there for a long time and we've just kept with them, especially since they integrate with everything and other CA tools. We also look at the integration focus of new tools.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Hi, Thanks a lot for the inputs. A lot has been improved since 5.5 as well so you are more than invited to upgrade to 6.2 and you will experience better performance. Happy to have a discussion with you to talk about your journey with the product.
