Automating and Accelerating Application Deployments to IBM WebSphere without Scripting

  1. 1. Deploy.  Faster.   Automa'ng  and  Accelera'ng  Applica'on   Deployments  to  IBM  WebSphere  without  Scrip'ng  
  2. 2. •  VP Products for XebiaLabs •  Lots of enterprise software development on high- performance systems •  Been on both sides of the “Dev…Ops” fence •  Active open source contributor and committer: jclouds, Akka, Gradle and others •  Cloud, PaaS & JVM language fan (mainly Scala, Clojure) •  Regular meetup, conference etc. presenter A Bit About Me…
  3. 3. Our flagship product, Deployit, is a market-leading Application Release Automation platform. o  Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts o  Global development and support offices in US, EMEA and APAC Our Company. Our Platform. Benefits include: o  Reduce development applications costs o  Accelerate application time to market o  Bridge the gap between Development and Operations
  4. 4. •  The Bigger Automation Picture •  Deployment: The Situation Today •  Deployment in your Automation Landscape •  WebSphere Automation Challenges •  Deployit: A Deployment Automation Solution for WebSphere •  Building on Deployment Automation: DevOps, PaaS and more Agenda
  5. 5. o  Economic environment o  Business pressure o  “Always on, always new” consumer expectation o  Growth in # applications o  Growth in # releases The Bigger Picture
  6. 6. Bridging the gap The Situation Today Release Packaging Public / Private Hybrid Cloud Middleware Build SCM Continuous Integration IDEs Provisioning Platform as a Service Dev Ops
  7. 7. What’s Wrong with the Situation Today? High Error Rate Lots of Delays Manual Deployments Too Complex o  20 components to be deployed per application o  A mix of middleware environments Repetitive & Manual o  10 versions of 50 applications o  Onto 4 environments o  5 times a day/week/month o  = 2,000+ error-prone activities No Best Practice o  Standardization lacking o  Split responsibilities across Dev/QA/Prod
  8. 8. What’s Wrong with the Situation Today? The Resulting Problem: Complex scripts and many deployment workflows to maintain. Applications Environments Test Acceptance Production HR Sales Backend Online Store Mix of Homemade Scripts & Manual Deployments o  Costly to maintain over time o  Application and middleware specific o  Error prone o  Operational manuals not updated Organizational Impacts o  Unpredictable deployments o  Time consuming, low VA tasks o  Ops and Dev autonomy Business Impacts o  Longer time to market o  Costs/OPEX o  Availability of business apps/risks
  9. 9. Why Automate the Deployment Process? Ronni J. Colville, George Spafford “Through 2015… more than 50% of those outages will be caused by change/ configuration/ release integration and hand-off issues.” Jay Lyman “The application deployment process in many large enterprises today is often manual, error-ridden and time- intensive.” Jeffrey S. Hammond “Firms are discovering that the velocity of business change is now limited by how quickly they can deploy.”
