Nolio Release Automation Review

The dashboard allows us to monitor all agents installed on all app servers.

What is most valuable?

The dashboard is the most valuable feature as it allows you to monitor all agents installed on all app servers.

How has it helped my organization?

We did a pilot - a POC – during which were able to make some progress with the product; it was a previous client, and they were trying to use this product but we couldn’t get it to work properly in the development environment.

What needs improvement?

It could use more plug-ins – at least in v2. Mostly it would have been nice to see it integrated with Jenkins and JIRA to create the tickets, and to be a plug-in for Quality Center.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for six months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We wanted to set up the automation continuous integration build process, and then we wanted to create a failure mode so it would automatically create a ticket in some defect management system. We couldn’t get the support, and we weren’t able to achieve our goals, and there were no other plug-ins available for JIRA or Jenkins.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It was in the development environment, but we didn't see anything.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

We didn’t use it.

Technical Support:

We couldn’t reach out to support because the product didn’t have the appropriate plug-ins.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used a home-grown product on the IBM side. We wanted to enable faster continuous integration dev-ops methodology.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy and straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

It was a combination of our team and CA engineers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It was expensive. In the latest version they have a lot of plug-ins so it would be worth it to invest in that version rather than what we used.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest v3.0 with all the plug-ins, which provides a lot more depth in using the product. There’s also a lot of technical support, customer service, and other online support options with that release.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

**Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are an implementation partner.
