CPS has placed a premium on selecting best of breed automation technologies that have resulted in increased deployment velocity and Agile release delivery that paves the way for true DevOps.

We achieve these greater levels of automation by unifying the platforms we use for application lifecycle management, automation, continuous integration, continuous delivery, production monitoring and production support to enable effective Agile Delivery and realize the true potential of Agile.
