The Old Way:

  • Devs throw code over the fence for Ops to clean up.
  • Teams use messy deployment systems, resulting in large changes, late nights and general unhappiness.
  • Complex platforms result in workarounds, compromises and roadblocks for your team's process.

The Workflow Way:

  • circle A self-service platform that puts everyone on the same page.
  • square Keep your deploy process quick and simple with a lightweight API and simple CLI tools.
  • triangle Workflow is built with composition in mind. You can easily color outside the lines and customize Workflow to your environment.
