Automation has become indispensable in modern software development projects and IT infrastructures and plays a central role in increasing efficiency and effectiveness. New or changed business, performance and technology requirements lead to a much higher frequency for changes and completely different benchmarks for velocity.
Applications, application architectures and application operations must therefore be modernized on a regular basis. Only through a high degree of automation companies will be able to remain competitive in the long term by bringing software into production faster and more reliably.
Automation of software development and IT operations (CI/CD, IaC)
One of the essential aspects of automating software development processes is CI/CD, Continuous Integration (CI) and Delivery (CD). A fully automated build and delivery pipeline is the foundation for successful agile software development, because all processes are repeatable and traceable.
The use of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) also allows the deployment and operation of IT infrastructures to be designed and automated in a manner very similar to the build and delivery of software development processes. This makes all infrastructure operations reproducible and auditable.
Security, Compliance and Governance
CI/CD pipelines help companies to continuously integrate security and compliance aspects into the software development lifecycle as well. DevSecOps (Development, Security and Operations) is a suitable approach here, describing the way companies take and implement security decisions and measures as part of their Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). After all, fast feedback cycles and defined organizational responsibilities are essential for a successful SDLC.
Best of Breed vs. Best of Suite
Our approach is to orchestrate existing tools and add more modules to create a complete and scalable CI/CD platform.
CI/CD at Scale with the Harness CI/CD Platform
Build, Test, Deploy, and Verify On-Demand.
As a self-service platform solution for every team, the Harness CI/CD platform allows software changes of all kinds to get into the production environment securely, quickly and sustainably. In doing so, it offers the possibility to orchestrate existing CI/CD tools such as Concourse, Jenkins or Vault and to implement secure access via Role Based Access and Control (RBAC) using Single Sign-On (SSO) with LDAP connection.
The Harness CI/CD platform is cloud and container native and is available as SaaS or on-premises software.
