Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager (MultiValue Edition)
Software DevOps and change management for MultiValue
Rocket® Aldon® Lifecycle Manager (MultiValue Edition) provides automated ALM and DevOps tools designed for Rocket® UniVerse® and UniData® and D3® MultiValue (MV) application platforms and their components, including databases and application code.
Increase developer productivity, coordinate development of multiple MV releases simultaneously, and improve code quality—all while simplifying IT audits.
Automate MultiValue software release management and deployment
Aldon Lifecycle Manager (MultiValue Edition) automates the manual processes involved in delivering software changes. It reduces costs, ensures application integrity, improves team efficiency, and shortens delivery times. Using point-and-click change package promotion, users can easily and automatically move changes through the development lifecycle.
With the automation our software puts in place, you can do more with your MultiValue applications. Responding to changes in the business is made faster and simpler, and modernizing applications by integrating them with other applications, web sites, web services, and additional data sources becomes less daunting. Compliance is built in and policies are automatically reinforced, taking that off your worry-list. You can also capitalize on distributed development and outsourcing, with our fine-grained control and role-based security. You can create specific releases and modules for use by distinct teams, and limit the accessibility of code to outside teams. Release management is repeatable, documentable, and traceable.
With your new level of insight and control, persistent source code change management problems—such as developers "stepping on" each other's code—fade away, letting you accelerate progress on new capabilities for your customers and end users.
Total visibility of software development across IT with a single repository
Lifecycle Manager for MV simplifies even complex, multi-platform development for MultiValue, giving you total visibility of your projects across IT.
From a single screen, you can track project status, view service request completion, monitor hardware and software requirements, and see who’s working on what code. You are able to view each and every MV asset you have—programs, dictionary items, and files within your projects—and what happens if you change them. You have comprehensive insight into development status—right down to the file level.
Meanwhile, a single repository keeps everything in one place. Users are able to work on a multitude of file types, and compare and merge files— all from multiple platforms. MV users can work from editors like ED, AE, wIntegrate, SB, SB/XA, BDT, and others. Windows developers can checkout and check-in their files directly via Visual Studio while Java developers can do the same from Eclipse-based IDEs.
Ready to go for Rocket UniData, UniVerse, and D3
Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Manager for MultiValue ensures instant productivity for Rocket U2 users. It features built-in support for Rocket UniData and UniVerse, for items such as programs, data dictionary Items, and schema changes. It also supports editors such as wIntegrate, AE, ED and, for the U2 development products, SB+ and SB/XA.
Programmers can access the programs and records they need directly via their U2 development tools and editors or from TCL/ECL. Right from the tools, they can perform checkouts, check-ins, promotions and deployments. They can associate the work they are doing with tasks and provide detailed information about the work they have performed.
Development teams can focus on project deliverables, avoid unnecessary disruption, and continue to operate within their preferred environments. Meanwhile, management always knows exactly where every project is and can prove it to senior management or auditors.
