We all know Jenkins is a brilliant tool for Continuous Integration. It excels at automating the technical steps involved in developing, building and testing applications.
As your Continuous Integration (CI) process matures and you look to expand to Continuous Delivery (CD), you need to look at orchestrating the entire release process from end to end.
XebiaLabs Release Orchestration builds on the CI-focused automation of Jenkins to add the equally important process integration side. Delivering an application from development environments to customer-facing environments is complex. Continuous Delivery needs to encompass your company’s Change, Release, and Project Management policies and processes... and this is where management-oriented dashboards, team analytics and reporting APIs are critical.
Jenkins implementations are typically focused on the technical part of your application delivery: building code, spinning up servers, executing simple deployment patterns, running tests and so on. And if you’re lucky enough to be working in an environment where that’s all you need to do — at a relatively small scale — Jenkins will probably work just fine.
You will find XebiaLabs Release Orchestration particularly valuable in combination with Jenkins when you consider the “process-level” requirements of your Continuous Delivery pipeline:
