Design your deployment process with simple drag and drop. With DROPS, manage all artifacts in your application, across multiple platforms, all from one single process. Deployment tasks are sequenced according to dependencies between them.
Use DROPS templates to create new deployment processes on-the-fly, manage incremental deployments or an urgent hotfix. You can create your own local templates for your specific environment and teams.
A proven, repeatable deployment process reduces deployment effort by a factor of 3 on average.
DROPS is polyglot! For any deployment task, pre- or post-deployment action, you can either leverage any of your existing scripts, select DROPS out-of-the-box scripts or create your own script in any language.
Each DROPS script can be parameterized for greater flexibility of use.
Is audit compliance your responsibility? DROPS keeps your scripts under version control with a complete audit trail of all script changes.
Take advantage of a library of more than 250 scripts covering numerous deployment tasks, usable directly within your DROPS deployment process. These integrated scripts can be replicated and customized to fit your needs.

Pre-built DROPS scripts cover typical deployment actions such as executing an O/S command, copying a file, stopping and restarting a service or application, executing an SQL script, deploying a REST application, key authentication, changing file permissions, secure copy, unzip and untar and more. Other DROPS scripts manage all the specifics of your deployments to ‘legacy’ platforms such as IBM i or mainframe System z.
The DROPS script library provides all the tools you need to integrate your deployment with external tools such as Jira, Docker, Ansible, Chef, Puppet and execute tasks in Python or Ruby, for example.
