JFrog wants to become your all-in-one DevOps solution
As we start 2017, it has become more apparent than ever that all companies, tech or non-tech, are slowly transforming themselves into software enterprises. Software has become the most important aspect of all companies, because essentially, it is what makes the world of business go round.
Take for example, nation-wide pizza chains like Domino’s and Pizza Hut. Up until a few years ago, Domino’s and Pizza Hut both did one thing – pizza. However, in order to keep up with the technological age and a ‘techie’ generation, these nation wide chains that used to only do pizza now have had to build apps in order to stay relevant to their users.
By making apps, Pizza Hut and Domino’s became software companies. However, what is most important to remember is that when this transformation happens, the competition between companies is more important than ever, and the competition is all about speed. So back to our example of Pizza Hut and Domino’s. In order for these two very popular pizza chains to compete, their app, and the updates to their app, have actually been transformed into the main battlefield of who is the better pizza chain (instead of just the taste). The software of these newly transformed companies need to be released rapidly to all of a company’s clients, without introducing any bugs or security vulnerabilities.
Finding help for these companies to keep up with the demand, especially in an area that is new to them, can be difficult. One company that is helping enterprises transform into software companies is JFrog, a leading DevOps accelerator that is on a mission to help companies release software faster through universal solutions for the management, distribution, and security scanning of binary software artifacts. Complicated, right?
Essentially, JFrog is helping companies that are constantly dealing with a massive abyss of code, by allowing them to update software fast, safe, and reliably. And as companies develop software today using several technologies, JFrog has built four products that are changing the world of software: JFrog Artifactory, JFrog Bintray, JFrog Xray, and JFrog Mission Control.
The first of Jfrog’s products, JFrog’s Artifactory, is a Universal Binary Repository Manager that supports software packages created by any language or technology. JFrog Bintray, on the other hand, is a Universal Software Distribution Platform on the cloud that natively supports all major package formats allowing you to work seamlessly with industry standard development, build and deployment tools. JFrog’s Xray performs Universal Component Analysis, and lastly, JFrog’s Mission Control offers centralized control over all of an enterprise’s Artifactory instances allowing it to manage and monitor all of its artifact assets globally. So what does this all mean? JFrog has all the bases covered for every aspect of coding and software updates that any company would ever need.
Ultimately, JFrog may be essential to software development organizations that need to release software at an ever-increasing pace to stay ahead in highly competitive markets. With release cycles getting shorter and shorter, JFrog’s products could help empower software development organizations to adopt DevOps practices. However, the main question that still remains, is whether JFrog has the capacity to truly be a completely universal DevOps solution for all companies. As more companies turn into software companies, it can be difficult for distribution circles to keep up with the demand. Well, as it seems, with JFrog’s four products, it is well on its way to taking over all tech companies.
