UrbanCode Deploy Review

Automated deployment forces the organization to standardize runtimes. They could add support for some of the vendor's own middleware.


What is most valuable?

Ability to do automated deployments. It does what it promises: It helps you automate deployments. But, it works better for some application component types than for others.

How has it helped my organization?

Automated deployment forces the organization to standardize runtimes, development output and handling of platform provisioning.

What needs improvement?

They could add support for some of IBM’s own middleware. IBM is so big a company that the left hand doesn’t understand the right hand.

For how long have I used the solution?

I’ve been using UrbanCode Deploy for too long.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support is bad.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We had various solutions before this one.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was complex because IBM started on the wrong foot.

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

Don't use the tool in combination with IBM as datacentre manager.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn’t evaluate other tools. We were forced to use it by IBM as datacentre manager.

What other advice do I have?

Look for other tools if IBM runs your datacentre.
