On May 30, Skytap has released Skytap Automation Pack for IBM Rational Team Concert, a solution that enables IT operations and development teams to provision IBM build machines on-demand in Skytap Cloud.
The Skytap Automation Pack will install together with IBM Jazz Team Server, the product monitors the build request queue, and incoming build requests trigger an automated process that creates build environments in Skytap Cloud based on pre-defined customer templates.
The company provides self-service cloud automation solutions and Skytap Automation Pack for IBM Rational Team Concert offers flexibility of IBM’s SmartCloud Continuous Delivery solution by allowing customers to use on-demand cloud resources to meet indeterminable demand for build machine capacity.
Brian White, VP of products at Skytap, declares:
While DevOps professionals are hesitant to abandon tried-and-true on-premise solutions, external cloud resources have proven to drastically reduce software delivery cycles and accelerate time-to-market, the Skytap Automation Pack for IBM Rational Team Concert combines the sought-after scalability and flexibility of a hybrid cloud with the popular IBM development tools utilized by some of the world’s leading enterprises.
