Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The main purpose for this automation tool would be: deploying, controlling, ordering change for the system and IT Infrastructure."
"Puppet Enterprise has reduced the time of production changes or environment changes."
"The versatility is great."
"It is very easy to make a software release. It used to take us at least a couple of hours to make a release, now we went to production with a new one last night. This new release took me five minutes."
"The most valuable feature is the snapshot functionality, which allows us to access previous versions of the artifacts."
"The stability is good. I haven't experienced any issues."
"At the beginning the initial setup was kind of complex."
"There's a lot of scope for enhancement on the DevSecOps side. They should definitely include features for compliance, for both the Linux and Windows side of the devices, as well as for network devices. Compliance is something they need to work on."
"I certainly would like to have a better way to pass information between deployment steps using UrbanCode Deploy because that's really difficult to do."
"I would like to have the agent up and running at all times, as opposed to only while it is in the DevOps pipeline."
"I would like to see more reporting for container architecture."
