MaestroDev Named DevOps “Cool Vendor” in 2012 by Leading Industry Analyst Firm
DevOps Orchestration automates customers’ software lifecycle toolchain across physical, virtual, and hybrid cloud environments
Manhattan Beach, CA, May 22, 2012 — BusinessWire — MaestroDev, an innovation leader in DevOps Orchestration, has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors in DevOps, 2012” report by Gartner, Inc.
“We’ve had some great customer accolades this year, and we believe this recognition from Gartner confirms our innovation of DevOps Orchestration, and it’s impact in the marketplace,” said Doug Dennington, CEO of MaestroDev. “Customers are using our Maestro™ product to automate cloud-era development processes with their own choice of build/test/deploy tools and hybrid environments, and they are achieving Continuous Delivery, real-time control of development resources, and faster time to market.”
Keith Campbell, CTO, Informatics, said “The Maestro product has automated our build process all the way through packaging. We are using our same toolset, but the Maestro Composition engine gives us consistency and speed that we did not have before. With Maestro, we are planning our development-cloud environment as well — reducing our build cost even further because we can dynamically integrate hybrid resources and external services into our workflows.”
DevOps Orchestration is the practice of executing a broad scope of tasks across both the software development lifecycle and IT Operations functions, with any choice of tools and environments, and with the process logic abstracted away from the individual tools themselves. Maestro is a central console that automates heterogeneous tools through a company’s custom processes for build, test, artifact, release, and deploy, and is optimized for Continuous Delivery, Agile development, DevOps, and Cloud Federation.
MaestroDev is able to deliver its technology-agnostic capability with the introduction of Compositions™, which persist the customer’s processes over time and inevitable changes to tools, people, and environments. Compositions enable a common language to express bi-directional changes and configurations between business, development, testing, and IT operations, in order to achieve Continuous Delivery. Maestro manages process rules, and even handles human (asynchronous) interaction in the workflow. Internal and external environments as well as cloud services can be provisioned in an elastic manner, and with controls to limit exposure to additional costs or unintended system utilization.
Examples of customers’ DevOps Orchestration projects include:
- Fortune 100 Financial Services company is processing thousands of builds per day
- National Healthcare provider is leading a world-wide terminology development and release project
- Fortune 50 Banking company streamlining artifact management across globally distributed teams
As software development evolves with Agile and Lean methods, MaestroDev continues to innovate open automation solutions so that customers can more easily utilize the latest open source and proprietary tools, cloud services, and hybrid infrastructures with their development cloud environments.
MaestroDev provides DevOps Orchestration and best practices for enterprise-scale development organizations across a range of industries. A single interface automates task management for Continuous Delivery, Agile development, DevOps, and Cloud Federation. F500 companies rely on MaestroDev to deliver their business-critical applications with more frequency, consistency, and faster time to market.
Headquartered in Manhattan Beach, California, MaestroDev provides product subscriptions and DevOps consulting from five countries around the globe.
