IBM i Continuous Integration Continuous Delivery

Businesses are turning to DevOps best practices to drive their development and deployment processes, while ensuring process and compliance enforcement and meeting the ever-evolving needs of today’s users and customers. Rocket® DevOps (formerly Rocket Aldon) is a platform specifically designed to enable true end-to-end continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) for multi-code environments that include IBM® i. With the needed structure and flexibility, businesses can extend holistic DevSecOps best practices to the IBM i, pursue innovative experimentation, and easily respond to compliance audits. They can also adapt to the ever-changing expectations of process, technology, or experience.  

And, with the unmatched experience of Rocket DevOps’ services team, you’ll be set up for success quickly, with a customized implementation that works best for your business and the power to take ownership over any future changes. 

Leverage Rocket’s End-to-End DevSecOps Solution for IBM i Powered Businesses

The IBM i no longer lives in isolation. Businesses must respond to customer and market needs regardless of how their IT infrastructures are set up. Similarly, customers expect development and IT teams to deliver the applications, environments, and process best practices that help businesses excel. This is true regardless of whether these businesses are working with RPG or Java.   

With Rocket DevOps you can: 

  • Establish agile DevSecOps methodologies and processes across your multi-code environment
  • Implement “shift left” testing for true CI/CD
  • Weave security throughout your DevSecOps process via automation and controls
  • Include the tools and integrations your organization needs to build end-to-end DevSecOps workflows, from requirement gathering to delivery
  • Enable non-RPG talent to engage and support the IBM i DevOps process

Make Truly Flexible CI/CD Processes a Reality

Rocket DevOps allows companies to implement CI/CD to enable freedom of experimentation throughout the development and deployment lifecycles. You can utilize built-in project management functionality or integration with third-party tools. This provides developers and IT teams with environments that refine and test new user experiences, technologies, or processes needed to enable continuous innovation.  

To achieve true CI/CD, Rocket DevOps incorporates automation throughout its structure and authorization controls. This ensures developers can focus on rapid iteration and testing, freeing them from time-consuming and repetitive tasks. The built-in automated workflows in Rocket DevOps also eliminate reliance upon error-prone manual workflows, accelerate development, and improve productivity across the workflow.
