XebiaLabs Releases Updates to XL Deploy, XL Release, to Continuously Deliver Value to Software Releases

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- To provide better insight into the Continuous Delivery process for DevOps managers and end users, XebiaLabs today announced new features and enhancements to its XL Deploy and XL Release products. Included are updates to its dashboards and reporting functions designed to improve feedback on the entire software build and release process. XebiaLabs provides software delivery automation solutions to agile teams looking to speed time-to-market with their software production cycles.

XL Deploy and XL Release respectively provide plug-and-play application release automation, and enterprise release pipeline orchestration for DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Both are components of XL Platform, which also comprises XL Test for Agile test management and analysis, and XL Scale for on-demand provisioning and scaling of full environments.

What's New in XL Release

Configurable Value Stream Analysis
XL Release dashboards have been expanded to include a new, configurable Value Stream Analysis that automatically highlights areas of your pipelines and release processes that are prime candidates for improvement.

"One stop shop" view of release and Continuous Delivery pipeline performance
XL Release also adds a new dashboard that provides a "one stop shop" view of current release and pipeline performance, risk and efficiency.

Webhooks and more automation plugins
Several additional automation plugins including ServiceNow and Splunk, have also been added to XL Release. XL Release also now features new smart webhook support to quickly automate any target system with an HTTP or REST API.

What's New in XL Deploy

Easy configuration and integration with Cool Tech
Already designed to make it easy to add support for new middleware tools, the XL Deploy plugin API has gained additional extensibility by including a new, fully backwards-compatible, rule DSL on top of the existing plugin API. This makes it even easier to configure XL Deploy for your existing environment and extend it to support the latest and greatest "cool tech" in a couple of lines of XML, without coding.

Customizable views & dashboards
XL Deploy also includes a preview version of the new UI extension framework, which will allow users to seamlessly integrate their own views and dashboards into the user interface.

Tackle Configuration Drift
To solve common configuration drift problems in several types of middleware environments, XL Deploy now provides an additional set of advanced reports.

The reports feature smart container matching and attribute filtering designed to highlight what is important, avoiding the time spent running through thousands of irrelevant default properties.

The new feature can compare target environments directly and also tracks discrepancies between XL Deploy's repository and the live environment. As an added bonus, the report interface introduces the first HTML5 UI components to XL Deploy, based on the new UI extension framework.

XL Deploy already supports comprehensive, extensible discovery for WebSphere and other middleware, as well as comparison and versioning of all configuration items in its repository making it now the most advanced solution for configuration drift on the market.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
