Application release automation (ARA) tools enable best practices in deploying and promoting applicationrelated artifacts, properties, configurations and even data across an application lifecycle in a safe, predictable and repeatable manner. Gartner reports that using an ARA tool is key to enabling DevOps and achieving continuous delivery.
Wikipedia also defines five dimensions of scalability that can apply to ARA tools:
• Administrative scalability
• Functional scalability
• Geographic scalability
• Load scalability
• Generational scalability
This white paper will explain how each of these criteria is relevant when choosing an ARA product that is capable of scaling along with the growth of your enterprise.
DevOps allows teams to effectively build, test, release, and respond to your software. But creating an agile, data-driven culture is easier said than done. Developer and devops teams struggle with lack of visibility into application monitoring tools and systems, accelerated time-to-market pressure, and increased complexity throughout the devops lifecycle process. As a Splunk customer, how are you using your machine data platform to adopt DevOps and optimize your application delivery pipeline?

In every company, today's ideas determine tomorrow's market profile. With rising competition, success can be achieved through a well-defined innovation process--one that connects upstream idea valuation to downstream production and release-to-market. To accomplish this, companies need to take a holistic approach to innovation management, connecting the process throughout all phases of the innovation lifecycle.
Business needs, market trends, and customer demands are forcing IT teams to deploy applications at a rapid rate. The frequency of the deployments can invoke human errors, failed deployments, and outages. This paper will guide you through seven best practices that will strengthen the way applications are released to production.
