CA Release Automation Review

Continuous integration connects all our tools, and helps orchestrate all our tools to speed up delivery.

What is most valuable?

Their products are near the market. They cover everything that we need on the customers’ side. Their products also get frequently upgraded, so they keep apace with new technology and new stacks.

How has it helped my organization?

Everyone is trying to go into continuous delivery using a continuous integration model. We need to connect all our tools together to see which products are helping us orchestrate all our tools to speed up delivery.

What needs improvement?

We need to see how they're going to harness Big Data in terms of, distributed stack, and going into the mainframe.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Whenever we pick a new solution and we try to install it, there are some hiccups in the initial stage. Once that is done, I think the issues are small.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

As far as I know, the new products are scalable. I think that all of their products are scalable. CA takes care of scalability. They build their products so they can be scaled up.

How is customer service and technical support?

Recently I used support for CA Rally, and I think it was really good. We got good support. They were able to resolve our issues and queries.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Originally, there was no solution. Then there was a solution, but it was in small cell buckets. Now the solutions are getting integrated together.

How was the initial setup?

I've been part of certain POCs and the pilot. I think it was straightforward, not complex. But in some scenarios, it is complex. The level of complexity actually depends on which tool we are picking. On average, it is actually moderately complex.

What other advice do I have?

I think everything is good with CA.

The most important criteria in selecting a vendor is whether it is satisfying in terms of your needs. The second factor is the cost.
