“I like the fact that Operations Orchestration has a whole bunch of out-of-the-box functionality. But it doesn’t end there. You also have the very powerful ‘SSH Command’ or the HTTP Get/Post ones. Theoretically, you can build all your workflows with just two or three different types of operations. It’s very interesting to work with a tool that can basically do everything, but in order to fully utilize the power and strength of OO, you need to be very specific in how you design the workflows.
The workflows can be retrieved and read easily because they are XML files. This also opens up a whole lot of possibilities for automating quality assurance on flow development.
The options to scale up the environment is also wonderful. If we want a new worker or central we simply add one to the current cluster and it’s operational. This works really well for large companies with high availability concepts." – Marcel Wortel, IT Specialist, Rabobank International
“OO powers our entire “Infrashop,” responsible for infrastructure delivery. This combines and orchestrates the services and administration efforts of multiple in-house departments into a coordinated infrastructure delivery process. OO has provided the kind of easy, accessible automation, that our internal customers can understand in concept, and still have all their processes automated. It provides a bridge between the specialists in our team, who make the automation, and the internal customers, whose processes we automate.” – Niels Walta, IT Specialist, Rabobank International
“We’ve automated several processes that are critical for any DevOps team. Like new server provisioning or getting software on their workstations. We did this before the whole ‘DevOps’ thing was a trend. So as soon as we switched to a DevOps approach, all our automated processes really helped in that transition. We were getting ready for DevOps all these years without really knowing it! When a new DevOps team wants to get started, all our automated processes really help them in successfully starting new projects.” – Marcel Wortel, IT Specialist, Rabobank International
