CloudBees Accelerates Time-to-Market for Mobile Apps

Date 2013/3/20 9:24:12 | Topic: Product News

CloudBees announced Continuous Cloud Delivery (CCD), a new approach to accelerate application delivery and meet high-frequency update requirements necessary for web and mobile applications. CCD represents the fastest way for development teams to push application changes and deploy the resulting code to production, all via the cloud.
With CCD, enterprises, mobile application developers and SaaS vendors have a solution to one of their most pressing problems – delivering incremental software features and updates quickly to keep up with rapidly changing markets and maintain their competitive edge. Rather than following traditional, lengthy software release cycles, software teams must deliver software in a more agile manner. CCD addresses this need by automating the development and testing processes, ensuring that software applications are always in a ready-to-deploy state.

“Our customers have made it very clear to us, time-to-market is their most pressing business challenge,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder, CloudBees. “Leveraging the CloudBees Platform, Continuous Cloud Delivery provides the quickest way to deliver applications and ensure the highest levels of quality.”

Traditional non-cloud methods of delivering applications can’t keep pace with today’s fast-changing online and mobile markets. The traditional approach is plagued with many issues, such as: isolated development teams without visibility into changes being made by others; teams using different development processes, tools and systems; delays between development stages because manual intervention is required or system resources must be allocated; and application quality suffering when corners are cut on testing.

The CCD approach leverages key elements within the CloudBees PaaS to transform the application delivery process:
* Cloud-based development ensures that all developers have visibility into code changes and application status at all times, even across teams
* Scalability and elasticity ensure resources are instantly available
* Repositories are centrally accessed for the sharing of source code and version control management
* Jenkins Continuous Integration (CI) automatically incorporates code changes and processes those changes based on team-established rules
* Ready access to development, testing and staging resources eliminates friction with IT and long waits for infrastructure resources
* Continuous deployment means updates are pushed to production as soon as they are ready
* Transparent deployment ensures no application downtime when updates are pushed out; transactions in process are not disrupted
