Bonitasoft's new add-on to the Bonita application platform, Bonita Continuous Delivery, has been selected for a 2018 Best New Product of the Year Stevie® Award by the American Business Awards.
Bonita Continuous Delivery won in the Best New Product of the Year category for the best platform as a service (PaaS) that increases the speed of development of applications, reduces cost of development, automates deployment, and provides flexibility and scalability.
From the judges:
"Bonita Continuous Delivery is an excellent tool for deploying incremental improvements to enterprise applications. Incremental changes can be tested and validated much more easily compared to fat changes. Overall, this approach tends to reduce the risk of a bad change being deployed to production."
"This is the direction where the industry is heading. Pleasing to see the success of such products in the market! "
Bonita Continuous Delivery automates provisioning of a Bonita platform so that deployment takes just a few minutes. This module can be added to the Bonita platform and leverages Ansible and Docker technologies for provisioning, along with advanced native Bonita capabilities to manage clustering deployments and platform backups. Applications on the Bonita platform are now fully compatible with both on-premises and AWS cloud deployments.
Bonita Continuous Delivery allows DevOps to prepare the full platform infrastructure for deployment and testing of applications before they are rolled out to users. It permits faster, smoother provisioning, multiple environment deployments and better maintenance.
It comes with an official Docker image and extensible scripts, and is AWS-ready for deployment in a single stack or clustered environment. DevOps can now deploy the Bonita platform in the cloud or on-premise through the entire application cycle, with the same standard DevOps tools from development through production.
Before the release of Bonita Continuous Delivery, DevOps teams deploying Bonita applications manually provisioned the environment, deploying stack components such as the operating system, server, database, and so on and configuring all of their dependencies one-by-one.
With BCD, provisioning is automated so deployment literally takes just a few minutes. The significance of this much better performance is that DevOps teams can innovate more rapidly and can also continuously improve the organization’s applications. Making new and improved customer-facing and internal business applications available faster is now relatively painless.
More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.
