Cons

More Digital.ai Deploy Cons →

"The solution has really complex code, you have to understand the Ruby language. However, once you know the code then you can move ahead without any problems.""It's a bit of a pain point to make sure that everything works once we've upgraded it because Puppet has been evolving pretty fast.""There's a lot of scope for enhancement on the DevSecOps side. They should definitely include features for compliance, for both the Linux and Windows side of the devices, as well as for network devices. Compliance is something they need to work on."
