CloudBees buys ReleaseIQ DevOps platform

Software delivery platform CloudBees has announced the acquisition of ReleaseIQ to expand the company ’ s DevSecOps capabilities , empowering customers with a low-code , end-to-end release orchestration and visibility solution .

The new SaaS-based offering enables DevOps organisations to rapidly compose and analyse workflows , orchestrating any combination of continuous integration ( CI ) and continuous delivery ( CD ) technologies – including Jenkins – without migration or replacement .
“ The decision to acquire ReleaseIQ was rooted in three core beliefs : choice , visibility and continuous value ,” said Anuj Kapur , President and CEO , CloudBees . “ First , businesses need to empower developers by providing a choice of tools versus forcing a toolset . Second , as DevSecOps matures , it is no longer acceptable to have a limited view of your software delivery ecosystem . And lastly , the future of business is rooted in the ability to continuously deliver innovation to the customers you serve .”
Today ’ s DevOps teams face excessive development complexity , inefficiency , and cost caused by incoherent , disconnected CI and CD pipelines . A limited view of a singular pipeline causes intelligence gaps and ineffective processes . This new capability enables teams to coordinate coherent , effective deployments and releases across teams , applications and environments , and provides complete visibility into the software delivery practice to advance performance .
