Getting started with Deployment Manager

Suggest edit Updated on April 13, 2020

Deployment Manager is a simple, intuitive, and ready-to-use application that offers built-in DevOps capabilities to users. It leverages Pegasystems’s market-leading case management technology to manage an automated orchestration engine, enabling you to build and run continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines in a model-driven manner.

You can run deployments involving your application updates with the click of a button, without the need for third-party automation services such as Jenkins or Bamboo. Fully automated pipelines helpto significantly reduce the lead time to deliver value to end users.

Using a standardized way to deploy application changes with guardrail-related and testing-related best practices that are built into the out-of-the-box CI/CD models results in substantial operational efficiencies.
