Prevent Environments Inconsistency and Cloning on ServiceNow®
xtype gives real-time visibility, reduces cloning, eliminates manual and error-prone releases, accelerates deployments, quality, and compliance.
Zurich Insurance deploys ServiceNow releases 5X faster with xtype
Zurich, like most companies, has adopted DevOps and Agile methodologies. It became apparent that those principles needed to be applied to their ServiceNow development efforts. However, many of the DevOps tools and metrics these days are still focused on file-based architected applications, not platform-built use cases like ServiceNow update sets, plugins, scripts, apps, and more. Zurich adopted xtype to shrink its growing backlog, deliver value more quickly and shorten its cloning windows.
Triple Your Delivery Speed
xtype stage-flows empower your teams to automate the deployment of update sets, execute automated tests, code scans, code reviews and approvals. xtype release automation uses packages that encapsulate update sets, Data, Scripts, XML, Plugins, and Store Applications, and completely automate production releases, boosting your ServiceNow CI/CD.
Reduce Error Rates by up to 1000x
xtype back-syncs update sets across all sub-prod instances reducing collisions, conflicts and code runovers. xtype's advanced back-sync technology also eliminates the need for constant cloning in your ServiceNow DevOps process.
Crank Up Productivity
Keep developers focused on what they love to do rather than on tedious mundane work such as mixing and matching spreadsheets filled with update sets and troubleshooting conflicting updates and spending weekends on production releases. xtype frees developers' time to use towards more productive, value-driven work.
Take Control with Complete Visibility
xtype provides a 360° cross-instance real-time command and control center for tracking update sets and changes across all instances of your ServiceNow environment. Easily see items needing attention, move update sets with one click and more.
