As modern software projects become increasingly complex, one of the key success factors is the approach to DevOps. Companies with a robust DevOps pipeline experience fewer production issues, and their developers spend less time worrying about deployment-related concerns and more time focusing on development.
Macedon Application Pipeline, or MAP solves the DevOps problem by connecting any Appian instance into a new or existing CI/CD pipeline. MAP uses a simple, Appian-based interface to unlock access to a powerful set of tools for developers: upload Appian objects and SQL scripts to a repository, build and execute a release across a series of environments, view the status of any deployment-related activity, and more! The security features that you would expect are built in as well, so the ability to deploy your production site is as open or restricted as you want.
In developing MAP, Macedon has drawn upon expertise from a number of projects; our teams have seen what works and what doesn't, and we kept all the best parts when designing MAP. The end product was so successful that our internal project teams started using it, and as a result, the velocity of those projects has increased notably, even as the number of production issues has gone down.
Simply put, MAP works for us - and it can work for you, too! MAP was designed with flexibility in mind and is suitable for many different types of organizations and teams. Whether your Appian program is in its infancy or if it has already grown into a complex ecosystem, MAP is the tool you need to streamline your program and get rid of your DevOps headache!
MAP includes a robust set of features:
