OpenMake Software enters ARA DevOps Market

OpenMake Software drives release management with Application Release Automation (ARA)

Chicago, IL – June 25, 2014 – OpenMake Software today announced the July 15th , 2014 GA date of Release Engineer, the newest addition to the OpenMake Software Dynamic DevOps Suite. Release Engineer is an enterprise-scale application release automation (ARA) solution designed for complex multi-platform environments.

Release Engineer, formerly Deploy+, centralizes the management, configuration, and reuse of all Release and Deploy elements for the enterprise. Its flexible design allows Operations to define release standards that can be inherited and customized specifically for each project team. It supports multi-tiered platforms with no reliance on any agent technology. Unlike its competitors, Release Engineer leverages a domain structure that facilitates the sharing of release components and dependencies for reuse across teams and delivers a unique roll forward logic for incremental release processing. Eliminate delivery errors through reuse, planning and shared control of your release with full audit transparency.

“An enterprise release automation solution requires a tool that is highly reusable, can support multiple platforms including both WebSphere and MS IIS, and allow the central teams to support more releases with less staff”, explains Stephen King, CEO, OpenMake Software. “Release Engineer solves these problems delivering a domain-driven framework for sharing Components and Release Modules coupled with an Agentless technology that reduces the overhead associated with deploy solutions that require the management of hundreds, if not thousands, of end-point deploy agents.”

Steve Taylor, CTO of OpenMake Software, emphasized “Keeping in step with our company philosophy of providing model-driven DevOps, Release Engineer centralizes the definition and sharing of component models and reusable actions across all teams company-wide. Our competitors manage these attributes at the application level creating silos of information that cannot be shared. We minimize the work required for automating releases by defining objects once and reusing them for all teams with similar requirements.”

Release Engineer was designed specifically with the multi-platform enterprise in mind with a design that allows the enterprise release requirements to be defined at the highest level Domain and shared across all Sub-domains creating a high-level of transparency and control available all to teams within the organization from central release teams to each unique development team.

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.
