IKAN Development

DevOps and Toolchain Orchestration for any environment

IKAN ALM is a platform independent, web-based application for implementing DevOps (ALM, ARA,...) and Toolchain Orchestration in distributed, mainframe and mixed environments.

Using IKAN ALM you will be able to:

  • Manage your application life cycles (main releases, branches, hotfixes,...)

    Define as many Life Cycles as you want for as many projects as you need.

  • Orchestrate your entire toolchain (using your existing tools)

    One central point to orchestrate all your tools along your desired process flow

  • Control the Build process (Continuous integration, manual builds,...)

    Release-, Package- and Partial Package-based builds are supported by default.

  • Automate the Deployment process (Continous Deployment)

    Move your builds forward and backward along your DTAP environments with maximum traceability.

  • Set Approval mechanisms (for proper release management)

    Define which users should approve the deployment of a certain project at a certain level.

It integrates with the tools you already use:

  • Issue Tracking: JIRA, HP ALM, Collabnet; TFS
  • Versioning: Git; TFVC, Clearcase, Subversion, CVS

It supports the following environments:

  • IBM z/OS mainframes (COBOL Assembler, PL/1,...)
  • SAP ABAP and JAVA (including an ABAP versioning component)
  • IBM Websphere
  • Oracle OWB and ODI
  • Any development environment, if you create your own phases
