Continuous DeliveryAt CloudMunch, we are excited to announce the support of Red Hat OpenShift in our Insights Platform. CloudMunch Insights Platform offers contextual and actionable insights across your entire delivery pipeline, from code repo to production environment. With the OpenShift integration, users can tap into the pipeline setup with OpenShift Platform (OpenShift 3.2 and beyond) and gain insights that are contextual and actionable. This will help them maximize their DevOps ROI by enabling the feedback loop on top of the pipeline.
The Need For Continuous Insights
Most of the industry discussions on DevOps was on Continuous Integration (CI) but it is just one part of the story helping developers be more agile. DevOps is about business outcomes which is depends on taking the idea to code to production much more rapidly and continuously. Continuous Delivery (or Deployment in some organizations) was the critical automation piece of the DevOps puzzle that helped organizations take the developer code to production much more rapidly.
While the automation (Continuous Delivery pipeline) is one important component of DevOps, the other critical component is the feedback loop. The key to successful DevOps is the cultural change that fosters closer collaboration and continuous feedback. Unless this feedback loop is seamlessly enabled on top of the delivery pipeline, friction between the stakeholders is bound to increase, derailing any DevOps efforts.
In fact, many organizations fail in their DevOps initiative because they don’t have a plan to reduce the friction in enabling the feedback. Organizations tried to solve this problem by bringing together metrics from various tools in the pipeline but lack of context made these metrics less optimal and, many times, resulted in creating silos of key metrics. Clearly, there is a need for Continuous Insights that will enable the feedback loop on top of the delivery pipeline.
Insights Platform by CloudMunch
With Insights Platform, CloudMunch is pushing DevOps to the next level of innovation after Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Continuous Insights offered by the platform helps DevOps teams gain contextual insights across all the stages of the pipeline, whether it is Dev, Test or Production.
Contextual insights like Commits trend by Sprint, Average Response by Commit, Average response by Sprint, Code Quality (Complexity, Violation, Coverage) by Commits and by Sprint, Average Response time is ops, Average Cycle time, etc are some of the KPIs that can be used by teams responsible for DevOps to maximize their ROI. While Continuous Delivery helps deliver software faster, CloudMunch Insights Platform helps deliver better software faster.
CloudMunch + OpenShift
OpenShift is a modern software stack that helps organization deploy cloud native apps to the cloud. A container application platform offering like OpenShift removes many of the application delivery bottlenecks like configuration creep, adding agility to the delivery process. With the support for Jenkins or Fabric8 for delivery pipeline, OpenShift is enabling the delivery automation that accelerates the application delivery. When CloudMunch Insights platform is added on top of OpenShift, users get Continuous Insights on top of their pipeline, helping them enable the feedback loop on top of the pipeline. With OpenShift and CloudMunch, delivering Cloud Native or Container Native applications is quite seamless.

Every organization is trying to embrace DevOps as a path to their modern enterprise aspirations. While platforms like OpenShift help accelerate software delivery, CloudMunch Insights Platform integrates with the delivery pipeline offered by OpenShift platform to help deliver better software faster. In short
Continuous Delivery (OpenShift) + Continuous Insights (CloudMunch) = Continuous Innovation.
