Traditional CM tools are file based and their support for continuous actions of check-in and build introduce new challenges to their design. This continuous integration and build practice, places considerably more stress and load on the CM version control and build systems.
Validata ABC is faster, smarter and more efficient with an underlying infrastructure to support these continuous actions. It is a next generation CM tool truly integrated with Validata SAS ALM platform. It has the ability to instantly build the application; right after a developer had committed changes to the source code repository. Imagine to immediately know the build was broken and who made the most recent changes, and all packages produced to have an easy way to display version ID on request.
Grab the release on its journey from QA to production! Create a ‘release map’ where every piece had a unique identifier build in the code itself that could be retrieved easily – even while it was running and be able to regenerate the ‘release map’ based upon the current code running in production. Compared this to the ‘release map’ that you had packaged, with the release of the time of deployment, that’s when you can find that you had the wrong scripts running in production!
Being able to do a CM audit, even while production was live, is where Validata ABC is unique.
Advantages and Benefits:Validata ABC delivers many benefits to a banking project, with clients achieving:
|Efficiency and Quality throughout the project
Reduced Deployment errors, associated with interdependencies between applications, software requirements, work packages, tasks and environments achieving efficiency and quality throughout the project.
|Reduced Costs and Effort
The increased effectiveness and accuracy of distributed application rollouts across environments reduce actual deployment costs and effort while enabling faster time to market.
|Ensures Higher Product Quality
Granular access controls achieve accuracy during package development, promotion, and deployment across environments, ensuring higher product quality.
|Continuous delivery and integration
Supports parallel development, multiple releases maintenance and manages file revisions rather than software versions. It guarantees the integrity of every build
Ensures consistency in configurations across multiple environments actually reduces downtime and related costs.
