Besides for the flash GUI which is a pain, it includes all of the features we were looking for.
We used an in-house developed scripting solution for the main parts of our deployments and complemented that with error-prone manual steps accompanied by huge hard to maintain deployment manuals. We wanted to implement a Continuous Delivery methodology combined with a DevOps culture and therefor needed to speed up deployments as well as delivering better quality products to our customers. We switched because our scripting solution would not be able to deliver on those key features. Plus, we also are in the process of switching from IBM Websphere application servers on Windows to a new target platform (JBoss EAP on Linux (RHEL)). So in the long run the scripting solution which was targeted on IBM Websphere needed a lot of work, if at all it would survive.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The solution creates a manifest file that caps the bridge between the developer and the system admin."
"This product is an innovative market leader in the field of application deployment."
"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is vendor-agnostic and it has a file called Manifest, which makes it possible for developers, ops people, and system admins to cooperate."
"The stability is good. I haven't experienced any issues."
"The most valuable feature is the snapshot functionality, which allows us to access previous versions of the artifacts."
"Stable solution that's good for automating the CI/CD pipeline: from development to production."
"The solution handles complex deployments very efficiently."
"The most valuable functionality is the ability to define the deployment process, schedule the deployment and automatically execute the deployments to different environments."
"It is very easy to make a software release. It used to take us at least a couple of hours to make a release, now we went to production with a new one last night. This new release took me five minutes."
 

Cons

"The tool needs to improve on cloud-native GitOps."
"While it is a flexible product and provides a means of integrating with virtually anything, the company should make a better effort to keep up with new platform integrations."
"The solution currently has a bug that causes performance issues. They need to resolve this in a future release."
"I would like to see more reporting for container architecture."
"I would like to have the agent up and running at all times, as opposed to only while it is in the DevOps pipeline."
"The technical support of the solution could definitely be improved as PMRs take long to resolve."
"The scalability of this application needs improvement. Changes and variations in the application become bottlenecks as they need to be more seamless and comfortable."
"The interface allows access in a number of ways but that can be confusing."
"I certainly would like to have a better way to pass information between deployment steps using UrbanCode Deploy because that's really difficult to do."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"Pricing costs are based on annual subscriptions."
"The product’s pricing is acceptable. We get volume discounts."
"Considering COVID-19, the price is too high."
"The licensing fees for this solution are based on the number of servers that are being deployed and the number of agents that you have."
"The cost of the solution is high but it offers great ROI."
