Jenkins + CloudBees Flow Release Orchestration for Financial Services

Extend Jenkins to unified release and deployment pipelines with CloudBees Flow

Shared visibility and control over islands of automation for faster time to value, better predictability and stronger compliance

Teams need a way to go beyond CI into full CD, leveraging existing Jenkins investment to evolve CI processes while enabling rapid deployment automation and release coordination at any scale. CloudBees can help.

Accelerate time to value with advanced out of the box capabilities

Stop writing scripts and start taking advantage of advanced ARA features, right out of the box. By combining CloudBees Flow with Jenkins, you gain:

  • Accelerated Team Onboarding

    Configure managed, controlled, and approved processes and toolchains for each of your products, technologies, and groups as it makes sense for your business. On-board them via self-service.

  • Automated Rollback

    Eliminate the need to create complex rollback scripts by maintaining environment inventory and tracking processes and artifact versions as part of each deployment.

  • Drift Tracking

    Compare what has already been deployed to an environment to either what is about to be deployed, or with a previous baseline. Improves quality by showing which components and which processes are different.

  • Unified, Model-Driven Architecture

    Separates the definition of the What (application components), Where (environments - machines, operating systems, middleware, etc.), and How (automation steps and actions) from its implementations for portability, consistency, and reuse. Model-based automation is dramatically quicker to implement and easier to scale.

  • Incremental Deployments

    Automatically determine what has changed and only deploy those changes to remove risk and speed time to value.

  • Inter-Component/Team Dependency Management

    Reduce rework, accelerate delivery, and prevent expensive and damaging release errors before they happen.

Enterprise-readiness for better predictability and compliance across the organization

Stop wasting time managing your distributed Jenkins infrastructure and step up to a unified, centrally managed solution. By combining CloudBees Flow with Jenkins, you gain:

  • Up & Out Scalability

    Handle growth in user base, automation scope, and frequency, application volume, and resource expansion without performance degradation or administrative escalation.

  • Traceability and Inventory

    Provide visibility into exactly what application versions are deployed where, including how they were packaged, tested, and promoted, to the lowest level of granularity.

  • Role-Based Access Control and Permissions

    Provide authorized users access to create, update, or activate any object in the system, including applications, environments, pipelines, releases, and resources.

  • Extensibility

    Easy out-of-box support for key technologies like clouds, containers, other tools. Powerful SDK to connect to newer tools, or “whatever comes next.”

  • Centralized Tool Administration

    Make a change once and have it apply everywhere, consistently, automatically. Don’t make huge investments in proprietary scaling tools – instead, leverage a scalable architecture from the start.

  • Comprehensive Audit Trail

    Report on every single action taken, by user and role, as well as all edits to every model/object definition by any user. Audits become a formality, not a new project.

  • Process as Code

    Use our built-in CLI, REST APIs, or our Groovy-based domain specific language (DSL) to define pipelines and automation processes as high-level code that is easy to version, test, reuse, refactor, and visualize.
