Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with XebiaLabs XL Deploy.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The solution currently has a bug that causes performance issues. They need to resolve this in a future release. Technical support needs to be improved.
Though the product is very good, I think the product can still be improved in a couple of ways. For example, there are new platforms that keep being developed. I think the developers of the product can speed up to support the new platforms as they are released. Having said that, they already have a plugin framework and the guidance provided on that ensures that we can build the plugins for new platforms. We experienced a scenario where we had to use a certain platform for which XebiaLabs didn't have a plugin for specifically. But the plugin framework they provide actually guides us through a process so we can build the plugin and apply it easily. Because of this, my team could actually build a plugin for that platform without much difficulty. From that perspective, the product is extensible and that makes it easier. From an enterprise perspective, which rampant change and innovation inspiring our developers to explore new platforms based on business needs, it is very helpful that XLDeploy can be extended to support the new needs. I think you find would find it to be the best of all the similar type of products that you've seen out there.
