Cool Vendors in DevOps 2014

by Jonah Kowall  |  May 2, 2014  |  3 Comments

Lots of interest across the board in how to integrate and deliver in supporting a DevOps philosophy. In this third annual cool vendors in DevOps research there are five vendors, which help DevOps managers, app engineers, and release and cloud managers control the application life cycle.

This year I contributed an interesting monitoring company who focuses on monitoring user experiance of single page applications. Single page applications becoming increasingly popular amongst newer web application architectures, and they change the page interaction paradigm most monitoring and measurement is based on.

I also contributed a write-up for Data Dog, you might have seen other research where they were covered. This innovative SaaS offering provides glimpses at new ideas for event management, collaboration, and open monitoring systems. Of course they also have their own set of challenges.

Ronni Colville and Colin Fletcher contributed MidVision for their deployment software.

Colin Fletcher and Jim Duggan (See we have good DevOps collaboration) contributed Plutora, which provides a SaaS based ARA product with some interesting concepts around release management.

Finally Colin Fletcher included ZeroTurnaround who provide tooling around continuous testing to enable more efficient developer time. They also offer automated release software helping a continuous delivery cycle.

Clients will have access to the full research which highlights much more detail, why the approach of the technology provider is cool, the challenges they face, and who should be investigating or thinking about these innovative and emerging technology companies.
