Digital.ai today announced it has reimagined the future of software delivery for technology-driven organizations with its industry-leading AI-Powered DevOps Platform. The new release—dubbed Ascension—empowers both private and public sector organizations to unify, secure and generate predictive insights across the software lifecycle, increasing business value with integrated software delivery, and driving down technical debt through enterprise connections.
The Ascension release further enables technology leaders to scale their distributed workforce and connect agile development at the portfolio, team and individual levels. The new features help ensure their business strategy is aligned to team-level execution while gaining increased visibility of the entire toolchain. Digital.ai is trusted by more than 1,500 organizations worldwide and across industries, including over 50% of the Fortune 500, to meet the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation.
“The last decade’s worth of well-funded, VC-backed software vendors has forever fragmented the way software is developed and delivered,” said Stephen Elop, chief executive officer at Digital.ai. “Technology leaders today need a platform that offers the connective tissue to plan, measure and accelerate business value from software investments, while reducing costs, increasing operational efficiency, and managing compliance. With our latest release, Digital.ai’s platform solves problems organizations encounter by delivering connected tools that offer a wealth of insight across the full development and delivery lifecycle.”
Technology leaders are under extreme pressure to innovate faster but face many challenges in doing so. Developers spend roughly one-third of their time on low-level tasks that could be automated so they can focus on more strategic work. However, enabling automation at scale is hindered by technical debt, and security and quality assurance teams are struggling to secure and support an ever-growing range of mobile devices and operating systems. This situation is fueling the global demand for new software delivery platforms like Digital.ai’s AI-Powered DevOps Platform. In fact, Gartner says “By 2024, 60% of organizations will have switched from multiple point solutions to value stream delivery platforms to streamline application delivery, up from 20% in 2021.”
Solving Software Delivery Challenges in the Digital Transformation Era
The AI-Powered DevOps Platform provides innovative solutions that support the software development and delivery lifecycle, enabling technology teams to use individual solutions or the entire platform. Digital.ai solutions can be easily integrated to existing processes, applications, and infrastructure to propel innovation and bring greater visibility and insight across their entire software architecture and ecosystem.
Key new enhancements include:
Integrated DevOps Platform
