I work as a DevOps Engineer at a Tech Services Company.
Currently, I'm comparing Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform with HashiCorp Terraform. Both are Infrastructure as Code (IaC) platforms.
Which one would you choose and why? Please specify the pros/cons, if possible.
I appreciate the help!
It seems you want and end-to-end solution.
You have a number of options:
use a Build tool (like Jenkins) and a Deployment tool.
Whatever Build or deploy tool you want to use, verify if they have an out-of-the-box solution for building and deploying WAS.
If tou want a full DevOps solution and Orchestration of the whole process you can have a look at our IKANALM solution that has out-of-the-box build and deploy phases where you just need to adapt the parameters. The solution is web based and works with Clearcase.

There are many potential tools and solutions in the market. If your goal is a repeatable process across the pipeline (from Dev) to production, then a mechanism that is built on flexible and repeatable process would be a sound choice. Managing the entire Build and Deploy process requires control and management over Continuous Integration (Build) and then Continuous Delivery (Deploy). This whole process can be fully automated, with the option of stage (control) gates if required. Please contact me if you require more detail.
