Continuous Delivery Vs. Application Release Automation (Guest Blog: OpenMake Software)

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a process, not a solution. Continuous Delivery is an extension of  Continuous Integration (CI). When a software update is saved to the version repository, the Continuous Integration workflow is triggered to execute steps that may include the calling of a script to compile code into binaries (Continuous Build), followed by a script to deliver the binaries to a list of servers (Continuous Delivery). In some cases where the production environment is made up of only a small set of servers, the Continuous Integration process may support production deployments, but in most organizations CI is used mainly by development and testing teams. When someone states they are doing Continuous Delivery, they are saying that they use their CI process to execute a deployment script. Read the rest of this entry »

Introducing Polarion 2015: What’s New and Noteworthy

This is the last addition to our Polarion 2015 release cycle. As you might be aware, Polarion R&D follows the principles of enterprise agile methodology, which enables us to release frequently, faster, and with better customer satisfaction.

We have a “service release” (SR) each quarter, and as the name suggests, it contains issue fixes and feature enhancements. But service releases also include complete new features if they are fully implemented, tested, and documented, and they do not significantly change the way people have been trained to use the last Polarion major version.

All the new features released in the SRs roll up into our next major version, which when released, also includes new features and functionality. So what you will see here are the enhancements published since our last service release Polarion 2014 SR3.

If you want to get a quick overview about our brand new release, check out my release announcement post: Polarion 2015 Delivers Visual Reporting, Variant Management, Enhanced Security and More.

So now let’s go through the final additions to Polarion 2015…
