Looking “Under the Hood” at CI/CD Pipeline Orchestration
Overview: An upcoming webcast will cover the “what,” “why” and “how” of building a CI/CD pipeline, definitions and roles of webhooks, REST APIs, and plugins in the CI/CD process and advice on implementation and best practices.
In a February webcast, Compuware presented “ISPW and Jenkins: A DevOps Integration Dream,” laying down the framework for achieving continuous integration (CI) through ISPW, Jenkins and Topaz Workbench. If you missed this introductory material, you might wish to check it out. The speakers did an excellent job of defining and describing the way the pipeline works, even demonstrating how quickly you can watch your code run through each step then have intuitive tools to analyze the results.
The Value of Automation
No one ever said achieving DevOps success was going to be easy, but over time, we’ve learned that we can gain the improved time to market while ensuring quality code only through an investment in automation. Manual processes simply don’t scale and don’t achieve the SLA compliance and speed you require.
Once you see the value to your company of CI/CD orchestration to significantly improve your DevOps process, you’ll want to delve deeper into how you can accomplish this through automation.
How it Works
It all starts with your Topaz Workbench and ISPW. From this base, using webhooks, REST APIs and other plugins, you can automate and visualize all aspects of the CI/CD pipeline with the quick turnaround you need. You define your testing levels and code quality tools and specify the requirements to pass the code through your testing levels to production. With the flexibility of ISPW REST APIs and webhooks, you have the ability to tie together your favorite solutions creating your own, custom pipeline to success.
With a clear understanding of how you can make DevOps work for your company, the next step is to figure out how you want to build your CI/CD pipeline. What tools do you want to connect? How should you implement it? What are some of the best practices you should employ to achieve your goals?
Join Compuware’s Scott Smith, Account Consultant, and Manoj Singh, Solution Consultant, on March 19 at 11 a.m. EDT for a 30-minute webcast titled, “Leverage CI/CD Pipeline Orchestration to Automate Your SDLC.” This in-depth presentation will answer the questions above, explain the ways the components can link together using widely available and open-source integrations and help you take the next step in creating a successful CI/CD pipeline. Some of the tools that will be demonstrated include: Topaz Workbench, ISPW, Jenkins orchestration, SonarQube. Invest 30 minutes of your time and save much more as you begin to build.
