iPCD uses Pega 7’s Case management capabilities to provide a continuous delivery framework enabling organizations to respond to business demands by delivering releases with a faster time to market.
iPCD utilizes the Pega 7 Case Management Platform, combined with an organization’s incumbent DevOps Tools, to achieve the Automated Build, Automated Test and Automated Deployment of an application. It provides a single view of the Release Orchestration Process across various environments i.e. Development, System Integration Test, System Acceptance Test, User Acceptance Test and Production.
iPCD treats both a Release and a Build as a Case type and through the Case Stages manages the lifecycle of these processes.
The iPCD solution drives quality through the build and release processes by enforcing Guardrail scores, automating smoke tests, carrying out Rule Compare and automating the release/build note and any associated approval processes. The iPCD framework is designed to run on a separate Pega environment and deploys agents on all the source and target environments. It uses these agents to facilitate application introspection to assess checked out rules, guardrail scores and ruleset versions.
