Application Lifecycle

Application Lifecycle solutions help agencies deliver smarter products faster and more efficiently. DLT’s capabilities provide a comprehensive set of solutions that help you access better data, manage costs, create efficient processes across your entire agency organization, and help streamline application design and development. With our application lifecycle solutions, government agencies no longer have to worry about applications that isolate governance, development, testing, and maintenance – they are now integrated into one solution. With products from partners like Red Hat, Ansible, Flexera, CloudBees, and GitHub, we offer a comprehensive set of tools that enable your agency to be successful. 

Middleware

Red Hat’s middleware platform, JBoss, integrates market-leading, open source middleware into a single, simple application server platform. These open source innovations have been integrated, tested, and certified for enterprise-class stability. In addition, integrated clustering and high availability features, as well as failover load balancing and distributed deployment features, support large, scalable enterprise applications. The JBoss product portfolio provides comprehensive tools and platforms for developing, deploying, and managing applications and services. You get a better value, integrated innovation, vendor lock-in elimination, stability, and JBoss Enterprise Middleware is the most efficient Java EE application server on the market.

 

Our Middleware solution offerings include:

  • Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform
  • Red Hat JBoss Web Server  
  • Red Hat JBoss A-MQ  
  • Red Hat JBoss Fuse      
  • Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization
  • Red Hat JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS)
  • JBoss BPM Suite

Continuous Integration

Jenkins by CloudBees, is an open-source continuous integration (CI) server that accelerates the software development process through automation. It manages and controls development lifecycle processes of all kinds, including build, document, test, package, stage, deployment, static analysis and many more. You can set up Jenkins to watch for any code changes in places like SVN and Git, automatically do a build with tools like Ant and Maven, initiate tests and then take actions like rolling back or rolling forward.

Packaged Application Management

Oracle Packaged Applications include Fusion Applications, E-Business Suite, Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, as well as a number of other Application products, such as Tax & Utilities, Communications, and Primavera, among others. Enterprise Manager 12c also offers advanced management solutions for custom applications. These solutions cover a wide variety of areas, including End-User Monitoring, Service Level Management, Performance Diagnostics and Analysis, Configuration/Compliance Management, Change Management, Functional/Load testing, Data Masking/Subsetting, and Cloud provisioning, just to name a few.  

Continuous Delivery

The CloudBees Jenkins Platform enables continuous delivery powered by Jenkins, the world’s leading open source IT automation tool. Continuous delivery (CD), an extension of CI, allows you to deliver better software faster by automating the application delivery lifecycle.  Jenkins is the industry’s first choice for CI and now provides full CD capabilities with Jenkins Workflow. The CloudBees Jenkins Platform delivers Jenkins for the enterprise with advanced enterprise features and professional support and updates.

Source Code Management   

Solutions like Enterprise from GitHub give developers the same great experience at work that they have embraced for personal and open source project to provide better coordination across the entire team. With the world’s largest software development community already familiar with using GitHub, your business can be on the fast track to a better way of building software.

GitHub Enterprise is built on Git, a distributed version control system that lets your company easily implement an almost endless number of workflows on projects of all sizes. With nearly all operations performed locally, Git is faster than systems that run on a centralized server.

Code Coverage   

Tracking the quality of your code is getting more and more important. Jenkins from CloudBees supports all the major code quality analysis tools in the market, such as findbugs, checkstyle, and PMD. It is also capable of picking up warnings from your compilers/tools, which otherwise can easily get ignored, and it can also keep track of TODO comments from your source code.

Code Review

With GitHub Enterprise, code reviews are built into the workflow. Pull requests let developers interactively learn from each other as part of the development process. Whether they’re discussing the whole project or one line, everything’s displayed in a clean, timeline-style interface.

Application Performance Monitoring

With our application performance monitoring solutions, you can monitor custom applications that automatically detects all available metrics and leverage your favorite custom scripts. Solutions like Red Hat’s JBoss Operation Networks management platform, you can monitor and provision advanced management capabilities for your entire Red Hat JBoss Middleware implementation.

Data Grids

Red Hat JBoss Data Grid is an in-memory data grid that lets your data-driven applications perform and scale as required. This gives you the flexibility to meet immediate and long-term goals.  Data grids commonly provide a complementary layer to the relational database and the application.  The key characteristics of a data grid are as follows:

  • In-memory, distributed caching
  • Map/reduce
  • Elastic scalability
  • Advanced querying
  • Data replication
  • Processing for streaming data
  • Transaction capabilities

Cloud Service Models

The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) instance of our Java EE application platform, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for xPaaS, provides the same Java EE 6 support for your OpenShift cloud applications, with the enterprise performance, reliability, and security you rely on from our traditional application platform. We offer:

Configuration Management

Centralize and manage configuration files on servers, network devices, and other systems. Virtualization and cloud technology have increased the complexity and the number of systems to manage is only growing. You need a consistent, reliable, and secure way to manage the environment - but many solutions have gone way too far in the other direction, actually adding complexity to an already complicated problem. You need a system that builds on existing concepts you already understand and doesn’t require a large team of developers to maintain.

Application Development Platform

Eliminate your application backlog with application platform as a service featuring business process at its core.  With components precision-made so that they don’t require coding, snapping a solution together has never been easier.

Application Readiness

Flexera Software delivers market-leading Application Readiness solutions to help enterprises in the inventorying, rationalizing, packaging, planning, and delivery of physical, virtual, and mobile applications, ensuring faster service delivery and continuous and predictable deployment into increasingly complex computing environments.

Application Deployment

Ansible is the simplest way to deploy your applications, giving you the power to deploy multi-tier applications reliably and consistently, all from one common framework. You can configure needed services as well as push application artifacts from one common system. Rather than writing custom code to automate your systems, your team writes simple task descriptions that even the newest team member can understand on first read. Ansible can deploy a wide range of Middleware frameworks like JBoss.
