Your Environment Hub in Jira, fully integrated with your toolchain
Companies ask for shorter time to market and better apps. Teams need fully interconnected and highly available test environments to run their activities.
DevOps opens new horizons in term of on-demand machine provisioning and scalability.
Expectations and pressure on Release Managers and people in charge of test environments has never been so high.
Test Environment Management (TEM) is a combination of best practices and tools that gives more control on pre-production environments. It drastically improves velocity of Release Management and Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) which strongly depends on test environments.
If your organization is already using Jira, it will take your team a couple of hours to configure Apwide Golive and experiment the benefits of managing your Environments the right way.
Up to 40% of effort during the software development life-cycle is wasted due to environment related issues.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Bye bye spreadsheets
Since day 1 we have been really impressed by the features Apwide has to offer. Managing test environment details through multiple excel spreadsheets and creating accurate product road maps has been really frustrating to keep up to date. Apwide has really made the ability to manage our test environments much more easier.

Used by everyone
A must have add-on. Useful and used by everyone (Dev, Test, Support, Release Management…) to have a view on versions per environment per application. We can no longer do without it.
Coordinator at Richemont
Easy to integrate
We are creating now a full automatic deployment (after project version release) to specific servers, and call Environments through Rest API to automatically set the microservice version deployed on specific server.

Our Environment Hub is a single source of truth to share information, manage and orchestrate Environments. Our experts use a methodology that classifies TEM use cases and product features into 3 categories: Know, Schedule and Orchestrate. Depending of your TEM maturity level, you may be interested in one or several of them.
