How did you deploy software before using Octopus?
Our legacy product has a windows installer program which requires a lot of manual input configuration, the software we use Octopus for was not production ready so was manually installed in dev/demo environments.
How has using Octopus improved the way you deploy software?
It has made our deployments so consistent, our support team have so few issues now and are constantly asking when we can convert our legacy product to an Octopus method.
What are the main benefits for using Octopus in your organization?
We have confidence in what we deploy, we know what has been deployed where and this helps us recreate customer environments. We know what packages each customer has exactly and what there upgrade path is. Speed and ease of deployment are also a major factor for us.
We've been overhauling our internal infrastructure and back-end systems over the past month, including a move back to full @OctopusDeploy deployments; rediscovering how nice it is to have a platform-agnostic orchestrator that can deploy practically anything, anywhere ❤Nicholas Blumhardt
