We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The event monitor is very good. You can monitor when the file is created so you can pick up the file once it's done.It is an umbrella system that allows us to integrate many different systems into our heterogeneous environment.The main benefit is you can deploy everything with it.It can support very complex environments and dependencies.It gives us good feedback on visualizations and on how our processes have progressed.The most valuable feature is the ability to see which problems have been resolved from deployment.The product provides efficiency, in terms time, cost, and resources.It provides a wonderful user interface which is easy to use.

The most valuable feature for me is the fact that you can easily design a pipeline to promote applications from a development environment up to a production environment, and the team can become autonomous in designing those pipelines.The second valuable aspect is its capability to drive external systems like deployment automation engines or to integrate with Agile Central.Its ability to automate release deployments, streamline release scope, and reduce the cost of and time for deployment.CDD is primarily used for showing end users (managers, business teams, project managers, and release managers) what is happening with each release. The status and reporting features are very important. Automation reduces time to deploy. It also allows us to do more with releases and testing prior to production, better guaranteeing a smooth deployment.

Cons
There needs to be better error handling and error descriptions. It should be more clear what the errors are and what we can do to fix them.It would be very beneficial for us to see integrations into cloud environments, especially into the Google Cloud environment because we are heading towards cloud.There is an issue with the stability in the tool. The process of agent will stop, then the monitoring agent can't be recognized because the process is running, but you can talk with the system.If you have a technical problem and need development of the tool, the support team is terrible, because they cannot help with the technical details.At the moment, the version that we are using (version 12.0), the environment is complex with multiple installations. Therefore, the monitoring is not scalable, but this should be improved in 12.1 and 12.2.We hope that we can integrate the new CD Directive into our portfolio, so we can bring the deployment and release management closer together.The dashboard should allow you to see the current state of packages in each environment, not only on an individual application basis, but across the entire application platform.

We have rolled out the SAFe model, but what we would like to have is better integration with Agile Central, for instance, or at least at the plugin level, where we would select only certain stories instead of many stories in the sprint.We would like to have a more user-friendly interface. It is already very friendly, but as soon as you start to have many applications with many tasks, the applications should be easier to manipulate on the screen.Reporting and dashboarding could be improved. Release pipelines should be creatable via templates as well as easily integrable/chained together. Visual navigation could also be improved when the pipelines become too large.CDD and RA should be two modules in the same product. They do not automatically “talk” to each other. and they require endpoint definition.
