Bring your existing tools or swap out our tools with just a few clicks.

Open DevOps starts with Jira Software, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Opsgenie. Teams can easily add the tools they want, such as GitHub or GitLab, with a single click.

Toolchain Capabilities

In this blog they suggest a catalogue of examples, organized by the major phases in the DevOps process, describing the capabilities required for each and what tools can be used to achieve them:

Phase   Capabilities Tools 
  • Continuously gathering user feedback, organizing it into actionable inputs, and prioritizing those actions for your development teams.
  • Integrations and feature flags. Wherever you decide to scope your feature or project, it should be converted into user stories in your development backlog.
  • Jira
  • Confluence
  • Slack
  • Production-identical environments for development.
  • Infrastructure as code.
  • Source control and collaborative coding.
  • Kubernetes
  • Docker
  • Ansible
  • Chef
  • Puppet
  • Terraform
  • Bitbucket
  • GitHub
  • Gitlab
Continuous integration and deployment
  • Continuous integration is the practice of checking in code to a shared repository several times a day, and testing it each time. That way, you automatically detect problems early, fix them when they’re easiest to fix, and roll out new features to your users as early as possible.
  • Code review by pull-requests requires branching.
  • Automatically apply your tests to development branches, and give you the option to push to main when branch builds are successful.
  • Jenkins
  • AWS
  • Bitbucket
  • CircleCI
  • Snyk
  • Sonarsource
  • Mabl
  • Sauce Labs
  • XRay
  • Zephyr SmartBear
Operate / Monitor
  • There are two types of monitoring that should be automated: server monitoring and application performance monitoring.
  • Software that is listening and recording data 24/7. Ongoing observability is a key capability for successful DevOps teams.
  • Tools that integrate with your group chat client so alerts go straight to your team’s room, or a dedicated room for incidents.
  • App Dynamics
  • Datadog
  • Slack
  • Splunk
  • New Relic
  • Opsgenie
  • Pingdom
  • Nagios
  • Dynatrace
  • Sumo Logic
Continuous feedback
  • Continuous feedback includes both the culture and processes to collect feedback regularly, and tools to drive insights from the feedback.
  • Continuous feedback practices include collecting and reviewing NPS data, churn surveys, bug reports, support tickets, and even tweets. In a DevOps culture, everyone on the product team has access to user comments because they help guide everything from release planning to exploratory testing sessions.
  • Look for applications that integrate your chat tool with your favorite survey platform for NPS-style feedback. Twitter and/or Facebook can also be integrated with chat for real-time feedback.
  • GetFeedback
  • Slack
  • Pendo
  • Jira Service Management
