Shippable Launches Industrialized Continuous Deployment Platform

SEATTLE, WA (Aug 25, 2016) Shippable has announced the next generation of its continuous deployment platform. The enhanced platform adds key features like release management, multi-cloud capabilities, a declarative pipeline language and a unified view across all application pipelines. These features help software-powered organizations further streamline the process of shipping software and accelerating innovation.

Today, most organizations find it challenging to innovate fast enough to satisfy consumers. DevOps is a set of principles that tries to solve this problem. However, the workflow required to get applications from source code to running in production is complicated and riddled withfragmented technology solutions. The only way to achieve rapid, iterative innovation is to cobble these fragments together in one continuous pipeline. Unfortunately, these custom, homegrown pipelines are rigid, inflexible and hard to maintain. The do-it-yourself approach is a distraction and takes valuable cycles away from product engineering.

Shippable’s integrated platform is built from the ground up to defragment and streamline the process of shipping applications, so that software-powered organizations can accelerate innovation.

Matrix builds for minor Java versions with Maven, Artifactory and Shippable

I recently had someone ask whether Shippable supports testing their builds against multiple minor Java versions. The answer is "YES!" and in this blog I'll share two ways to do it and walk through an example setup.

Shippable Podcast #1: Nicole Forsgren on the State of DevOps

Welcome to our first Shippable Podcast. In this installment, Dr. Nicole Forsgren from Chef Software and co-author (with Gene Kim and Jez Humble) of the State of DevOps 2016 Report, discusses the trends she discovered in this year's report, how DevOps has evolved in the past few years, and how organizations are successfully harnessing DevOps to drive application delivery agility.

What is Modern Application Delivery?

Development practices have come a long way since the time of Waterfall. Development shops have progressed through Agile methodologies and have built a culture of continuously delivering value to their customers, both internally and externally. Many shops have also since implemented Scrum and are experimenting with containerization technologies.

Q&A with Microsoft's Mark Russinovich

Mark Russinovich is Chief Technology Officer for Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s global enterprise-grade cloud platform. A widely recognized expert in distributed systems and operating systems, Mark earned a Ph.D. in computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. During DockerCon we had a chance to ask him a few questions about Microsoft's move towards embracing container technologies in Azure. This is a first in a series of Shippable Q&As and podcasts with the minds shaping the world of containers and microservices.
