CA Release Automation Review

Technical and non-technical people can use it. Upgrades are expensive in terms of effort.


What is most valuable?

  • UI-based orchestration
  • Ease of use of the application from anyone who is technical to completely non-tech folk
  • Great visualization and consolidation of reports across the organization

What needs improvement?

  • Better integration with new-age tools
  • Open-source integrations
  • Establish a niche with newer players like Chef and Ansible

For how long have I used the solution?

We have used Release Automation for 6-7 years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It did not scale efficiently to multiple domains for NES. Upgrades are expensive in terms of effort.

How is customer service and technical support?

I give technical support 3/5.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was extremely complex due to infrastructure challenges and the specs required to get this implemented.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it with an in-house team.

What other advice do I have?

It’s a great tool if the developers and ops are separate and the developers do not want to spend a lot of time configuring deployments.
