Cutover

May 4, 2021

The problem with existing agile delivery and DevOps tooling when coordinating a code release

Developers have great tools to write code, maintain version control, and manage requirements. But when it comes to getting code out of the door, it takes much more than just developers; it takes an entire team of people.

Often it’s very difficult to align all the work and people required to release new functionality, with too many tickets being created, making it harder, rather than easier, to track what’s happening. If these releases are not aligned efficiently, code can be left unused, and developer time is under-utilized.

How Cutover helps

Cutover allows you to integrate all the tooling that Developers love: Jenkins, Travis, Ansible, JIRA, Bitbucket, and GitHub, without needing to build your own connectors or orchestration tooling. It’s not just development tools, you can also integrate into Slack, Teams, and email, making communication around release coordination easier. Build runbooks that bring all the critical activities and people involved in a code release into one place. Configure the automation of repetitive technical tasks to run alongside human activity, get updates from the tools and teams to keep things running smoothly, and reduce inefficiencies.

  • Using runbooks, you can plan out detailed releases, bringing the right people in at the right time, and without overwhelming those involved with unnecessary CI/CD and deployment details
  • Using streams you can provide important structure to cross-team collaboration and work, such as updating apps and websites, while also updating marketing channels and app store pages

By integrating Cutover with Bitbucket and GitHub your developers are able to leverage Cutover runbooks for source control, offering the following benefits:Screenshot 2021-05-04 at 11.56.48

  • Having the configuration in source control (and code) allows developers to be in their known environment when setting up parameters and teams for use in Cutover (e.g. branch names, version number, team assignments).
  • With these details in source control, this means you can also quickly verify what configuration was active for a given point.
  • Integration setup is simple and straightforward, making it easy for you to leverage the data and capabilities of your existing tools within Cutover.

Cutover benefits

  • Give your developers a consistent way to inform and communicate with other teams
  • Provide Product Managers with clear visibility over progress without diving into developer tooling
  • Offer Marketing and Support teams a way to work alongside developers effectively, without requiring large volumes of email or Slack messages
  • Build a baseline for the deployment timeline, so you can see quickly when things are running longer than expected, and flag areas where you can improve the process
