XebiaLabs announces Now certified XL Release app
XebiaLabs, the recognized leader in enterprise-class DevOps and Continuous Delivery software tools, announced that it has received certification of its new XL Release app integrating ServiceNow and the XebiaLabs DevOps Platform. XL Release is available from the ServiceNow Store and can be downloaded for free.
Designed for enterprise customers and ServiceNow partners, the integration builds a bridge between Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) and ServiceNow IT Service Management (ITSM). XebiaLabs has also been elevated to a Bronze ServiceNow Technology Partner, opening new opportunities for ServiceNow sales and services partners to help customers who require a solution that connects their CI/CD pipelines with ITSM.
ITSM Shifts Left
DevOps adoption has accelerated at a record pace, but for the most part, ITSM processes have been left out of the change. Without a reciprocal connection between development and IT operations, developers, operations staff, product owners, and others involved in software delivery have a hard time tracking and managing the mix of features, user stories, and ServiceNow IT service requests. This disconnect between developers’ CI/CD pipelines and ITSM puts compliance and security at risk as developers focus on delivering features faster, but security and compliance teams are left out of the delivery process.
XebiaLabs brings the worlds of continuous delivery and ITSM together
The integration between XebiaLabs and ServiceNow provides the industry’s first bridge between CI/CD and ITSM. By combining with ServiceNow, the XebiaLabs DevOps Platform manages the end-to-end DevOps toolchain, orchestrates and automates all release activities, and provides full visibility into the entire software delivery process for everyone in the pipeline.
This integration also connects issue tracking and change requests, so that user stories and change tickets are always up to date. And it enables IT teams to include automated and manual security checks into the pipeline, with end-to-end audit tracking and robust compliance and audit reports.
“We’re thrilled that our new certified app for connecting CI/CD to ServiceNow is available through the extensive ServiceNow ecosystem,” said Derek Langone, XebiaLabs CEO. “Realizing the full promise of DevOps requires all pipelines within the delivery process to be seamlessly connected. Having our app available in the ServiceNow Store is great opportunity to bring the leading platform for enterprise DevOps to an even wider group of organizations who must ensure that their CI/CD and ITSM pipelines are fully integrated, compliant, and secure.”
