What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is auto-deployment of application versions through direct connectivity with UrbanCode Deploy.

How has it helped my organization?

Previously, for a planned release, an Excel-based implementation plan had to be created and validated beforehand in a production-like environment. On the go-live date, a high number of resources were required to run that implementation plan... more»

What needs improvement?

What do you think of UrbanCode Deploy?

Valuable Features Gates is one interesting feature, which will help approvers provide their approvals in advance, without having to rely on when deployment happens. • Improvements to My Organization It has helped developers manage and deploy their own applications. • Room for Improvement The Archiving policy is something which should be looked at.

Custom plugin development was easy and the tools capability of keeping the version tracking of workflows were pretty good. • Improvements to My Organization It provided a reduction in deployment time and lowered the application downtime. • Room for Improvement More out of the box plugins are required though good number are avaialble at the moment. • Use of Solution I've used it for one-and-a-half years.
