Kaptio’s Travel Tech Grows Tentacles with Octopus Deploy

Author: Peter Bridger

Overview

Humans are at the heart of everything that we do at Kaptio. We’re a close-knit team who take great pride in the products and relationships that we build with our customers and partners. Although people are great at many things, it’s hard to deny that computers are better suited to ensuring certain tasks and processes are completed exactly as required and without error every time. We need to ensure that various systems that make up the Kaptio Travel Platform are deployed consistently, reliably and with a full audit trail of what happened, when and by who.

Introducing Octopus

Octopus Deploy is a tool designed to fully automate complex deployments, whilst providing an easy to understand dashboard to oversee and control the work.

It’s used by over 25,000 organisations around the world such as Microsoft, NASA and Disney powering 180 million deployments so far.

Over the past 10 years, it has become a staple tool used by enterprises worldwide to tame the complexity of deployment across a wide range of technologies and cloud platforms.

How Our Travel Tech Uses Octopus

Supporting our use of Salesforce are a number of other systems that reside on the Google Cloud Platform. Each of these systems must be deployed following an exact process so that a variety of changes are made at the correct time and that the system is continuously validated and tested during all stages of the deployment so that we have full confidence that all systems are operating correctly.

Octopus Deploy provides us with the ability to fully script the deployment for each of our systems. This ensures that whether it’s a developer suffering from lack of time during a frantic day or an inexperienced new starter who isn’t very familiar with the process, in either case, the deployment process will be strictly followed and executed correctly every time.

In the rare event of an automated deployment process encountering an issue, Octopus Deploy allows for a full rollback to the previously deployed version.

These many safeguards guarantee that deployments have become a regular and mundane occurrence. Our excitement instead comes from being able to share new product features with our clients and partners, as our deployment process is predictable and reliable.
