Automated Source Code Management Procedures
Automation that extends the capabilities of a source code management system to ensure the enforcement of best practices, avoid unnecessary labor, and prevent mistakes. All common and repetitive tasks are automated to enforce your best practices, including creating repositories, checkin, checkout, tagging, committing, branching, and merging.
Branching is useful in most development settings and essential in fast moving operations where you are required to simultaneously run, maintain, or test multiple versions of the same service. In practice, merging branches can get tricky due to complexity and the opportunity for conflict. We help you avoid these problems by putting into place trusted best practices and automated merge tracking tools, turning the uncertainty into smooth predictability.
