Overview

XL Deploy & XL Release: Leading deployment automation and release management platform

XL Release is an enterprise release coordination software. It allows customers to plan, track, and execute release plans from code drop to the end-user.

It proactively avoids release delays and failures by tracking pending tasks, risks, and dependencies. It speeds up the delivery process by replacing manual with automated tasks and standardizing release plans.

Our team is an integral part of a globally distributed effort of skilled engineers. We grew our team from a single person to 15 people (and growing), supporting the growth of sales of the platform across the globe.

When we first started working on the platform, it was owned by XebiaLabs. Digital.ai acquired them and made them a part of their portfolio.

Challenges

A globally distributed team

Digital.ai (previously XebiaLabs) XL Deploy & Release teams are scattered all across the globe — from the US to NL and India. Still, Agency04 engineers became team leads to their colleagues from the Client side.

Technological excellence

The client asked for specifical technological knowledge. Scala and Akka were scarce skill sets required to support their growth.
