Driven by growing business demands for rapid (if not continuous) delivery of new applications, features and updates, enterprise infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders invest in Application Release Automation (ARA) solutions to simultaneously improve both the quality and the velocity of application releases. ARA solutions reduce friction across the entire application development (AD) life cycle by codifying best practices in consistently moving together related artifacts, applications, configurations and even data. To do so, ARA solutions provide a combination of automation, environment modeling and release coordination capabilities. While these tools play a critical role in enabling the DevOps goal of achieving continuous delivery with large numbers of highly automated, rapid, small releases, they also are used to enhance agile development initiatives and serve as the foundation of a release management practice that spans both development and operations teams.
