Collaborate Across DevOps Teams
Subscribe to an Application and track your 'to do' list
Key to a successful Continuous Delivery process is the ability for teams to easily share deployment information. Collaboration is particularly important between development teams and operational teams such as Testing and Production Control. Release Engineer uses built-in collaboration allowing users to 'subscribe' to an Application. Subscribing provides a 'social networking' experience that keeps the subscriber informed about all activities that occur to a particular software application including new versions, changes and deployments. The 'feed' is kept based on a timeline, so all actions are recorded and reported to all subscribers.
In addition, Release Engineer provides each user a 'home' page that shows each users 'to do' list. The 'home' page is particularly important when the continuous delivery pipeline requires approval gates or a deployment requires manual tasks. This central location offers an easy method for everyone to stay connected and 'in the loop' without holding 'release meetings' and ensuring a critical step is not held up because an individual did not know that the deployment was waiting on them for an approval or manual step.
