Validata Build & Configuration Methodology
Validata Build & Configuration Process
Controlling source code and artifacts development is a critical part of modern software development. Rarely is software shipped on schedule, on budget, and with the features and stability desired in the original specifications. CIOs face several problems trying to manage their software releases.
A detailed picture of the current release process is usually not available whereas a regular release cycle is not established. At the same time the process of developing new releases is usually insufficient since there is an intense need of repeating the cyclic approach until the desirable results are reached.
Traditional CM tools are file based and their support for continuous actions of check-in and build introduce new challenges to their design. This continuous integration and build practice, places considerably more stress and load on the CM version control and build systems.
Automating and standardizing the Release Management procedure, helps eliminate the repetitive tasks, reduce the required resources and ensure that all inputs and outputs are consistent at all times.
Validata ABC, enables IT organizations to automate the process of application upgrades – patches, resulting in shortened release cycles, application configuration alignment, and automated updates across any groups, sites, countries.
Unlike traditional solutions, Validata ABC is faster, smarter and more efficient with an underlying infrastructure to support continuous actions of check-in and build. It is a next generation CM tool trulyintegrated with Validata SAS ALM platform. It has the ability to instantly build the application; right after a developer had committed changes to the source code repository. Imagine to immediately know the build was broken and who made the most recent changes, and all packages produced to have an easy way to display version ID on request.
Grab the release on its journey from QA to production! Create a ‘release map’ where every piece had a unique identifier build in the code itself that could be retrieved easily – even while it was running and be able to regenerate the ‘release map’ based upon the current code running in production. Compared this to the ‘release map’ that you had packaged, with the release of the time of deployment, that’s when you can find that you had the wrong scripts running in production!
Being able to do a CM audit, even while production was live, is where Validata ABC is unique.
The product aims in speeding up the process of applying patches and upgrades to T24 servers by up to 40-50%. It allows for even less technical personnel to perform the administration tasks and maintain a number of servers at a time. The comprehensive reports help controlling the overall maintenance process of keeping multiple environments in sync.
Package and Deployment AutomationValidata ABC Capabilities
Validata ABC imports patches from Temenos, allows review and modification, then generates another package with the amendments and deploys it using the BUILD.CONTROL tool. As part of the deployment procedure Validata ABC can do Prerequisite actions as well as Post installation actions.

In our days the main Base code development gets implemented at the main development site or it is out sourced to the vendor. When ready and tested, gets shared and delivered at the business sites where now it has to be combined with the local developments, get tested and communicate with several interfaces.
