We have had experience in the past with many solutions and sometimes use them if required. So these tools played a part as components of a framework. Because customers have already made some choices we have to make integrations revolving around some of these tools that they chosen and invested in. It is our job to get things integrated into the value-stream and ensure that the visibility of the information and control from governance, audit and compliance perspective is simplified for our customers. Previously we used Jenkins. So, initially, a lot of the work was scripted on Jenkins. We moved away from that solution to now use Jenkins for CI, XLRelease for CD and Release orchestration and XLDeploy for Deployment automation. Obviously, in the initial days while in experimentation for our team, we started with open source solutions because they were essentially free and we did not have better direction as to what we needed. It was an easy way to start on things because you can experiment without any cost involved. But, when you look at the whole problem from an enterprise-scale, you've got to look at it from a different angle because a lot of the factors come into the picture. That's when you have to take a realistic look at that solution you are currently using and say, "Well, is that really going to make sense from an enterprise skill perspective?" If it doesn't make sense, then it is time to make a change. When we looked for an enterprise-scale solution, it did not meet our requirements from a security, scalability, or from an automation capability standpoint. It was nowhere close to what XL Deploy and XL Release provides. We decided we wanted a scalable, dynamic automation across the enterprise. We didn't find anything to be a good fit until XL Deploy and XLRelease. View full review »
