- Your company can control and link your development team’s CI/CD workflow to your production cloud with this combo.
- From a broader perspective, businesses may accelerate the provisioning and administration of multi-cloud infrastructure installations with Cloudify and ITOM by effectively integrating the efforts of their DevOps and IT teams.
Your firm can benefit significantly from clouds. If—and this is a big if—you can make it function for you, businesses like Cloudify, with its open-source business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce platform, may help. The Cloudify infrastructure automation platform may now be used with ServiceNow IT Operations Management (ITOM), a component of the Now Platform’s digital workflow, to increase its power.
By fully integrating orders, price, product, and stock data with various enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, including SAP, NetSuite, and Microsoft Dynamics, Cloudify enables you to conduct business with your customers online. Additionally, it integrates with back-office accounting and warehouse systems. For even more sophisticated automation capabilities, you can use your current toolchains like Jenkins, Terraform, Ansible, CloudFormation, and Kubernetes.
When everything is combined, you get “Environment as A Service,” Cloudify (EaaS) describes. EaaS is the subsequent development of DevOps, according to Cloudify’s CTO and founder Nati Shalom “It’s all about fostering innovation and making many of those remote systems as straightforward as the local system.” Shalom said.
According to the company, EaaS will provide premium multi-cloud infrastructure orchestration and automation by enabling you to run apps across various cloud or data center platforms with a single click.
The Cloudify platform has now extended its scope once more. It is currently accessible on the ServiceNow Store. You can collaborate with your development team to automatically fix your cloud resource setup when you use Cloudify with ITOM.
The above attainment is possible by validating resources using ServiceNow Cloud Configuration Governance (CCG). You then start the clean-up process from there. These are then carried out automatically by Cloudify. They are finally released using ServiceNow or Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipelines.
The company claims, “Developers can enjoy a self-service experience needed to rapidly spin up and tear down dev/test environments with minimal effort, as well as simplifying change management of production environments.”
The duo provides the necessary tools for your cloud developers to create, share, and manage cloud and multi-cloud work environments. The Now Platform serves as the daily workflow automation engine. At the same time, Cloudify takes care of environment development and Day 2 administration.
From a broader perspective, businesses may accelerate the provisioning and administration of multi-cloud infrastructure installations with Cloudify and ITOM by effectively integrating the efforts of their DevOps and IT teams.
According to Cloudify, the ServiceNow partnership makes it simpler to:
On the multi-cloud, regulate policies, automate configuration compliance, and standardize tag usage. IT teams can provide settings, tag policies, and spot infractions using ITOM Governance. Then, ITOM Governance and Cloudify can fix these.
Bring the IT and DevOps teams together. The collaboration is possible by using Cloudify to maintain the deployed environment and giving IT operators access to ServiceNow to address violations. Everyone now has access to a single window that connects ServiceNow activities and CI/CD pipelines.
All this cuts down on remediation downtime.
The result? In a press release, Brian Emerson, ServiceNow’s ITOM VP and GM, said, “Developers are always being asked to move faster and push new features to production quickly.” And this will enable them to keep up with the demand. Ariel Dan, Cloudify’s CEO, added, “Now DevOps can manage heterogeneous cloud environments at scale while complying IT processes. Ultimately, this means “an organization can manage end-customer environments and internal Dev/QA/Production environments more efficiently.”
