Save Time - Outsource your Build Team

Save Time

  • Outsource your Build Team – repurpose valuable resources from low-value language builds (i.e., building runtime environments that include the language and packages for your app) to value-add projects.
  • Speed Developer Onboarding – replace the Readme for dev environment setup by reducing runtime installation to a single step.
  • Eliminate Dependency Hell – let the ActiveState Platform automatically resolve dependencies for you.

Accelerate Time To Market

  • Reproducibility – consistent, standard, reproducible runtime environments eliminate ‘works on my machine’ issues that delay releases.
  • Shift Left – proactively identify security & compliance threats before they impact the release schedule.
  • Automated Language Builds – spend less time managing runtime environments and more time coding.
