One of the largest US Bank Check and Related Material Manufacturer selects Release Engineer for automating continuous delivery.

Big Win for OMS – one of the largest providers of integrated payment, marketing and retail products serving multiple industries including banks, and investment firms, has selected OpenMake’s Release Engineer as their strategic Application Release Automation (ARA) solution supporting development through production control.

According to the company’s Sr. Enterprise Architect, factors that led to the decision to select Release Engineer included:
1) Flexible configuration of the UI;
2) Flexible customization of the underlying scripts;
3) Agentless architecture and reliance on SSH and SFTP making deployment easier (no need to install on the machine, and open additional ports);
4) Licensing model offered lower cost and a less risky entry into DevOps;
5) OpenMake’s long experience in the automated release deployment space.

Ms. Ragan has had extensive experience in the development and implementation of DevOps for large organizations. She began her consulting career in 1989 on Wall Street specializing in build, testing and release management for the distributed platform. It was during her consulting experiences that Ms. Ragan recognized the lack of standardized development procedures on open systems that were common on the mainframe. In the years leading to the creation of OpenMake Software she worked with development teams in implementing a community driven standardized build and deploy process that enabled frequent builds and releases, automated around version control. Her knowledge and experience contributed to the creation of OpenMake Meister, the first commercial Build Automation solution. Ms. Ragan served on the Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors as an Add-in Provider Representative for 5 years. She has been published on numerous occasions and regularly speaks at conferences including CA World where she presented for 15 consecutive years.
