The Future of CI/CD with ThingWorx: Introducing ThingWorx Solution Central!
Raise your hand if you’re ready for seamless, rapid deployment of your ThingWorx applications with visibility into your various environments! It’s time to say goodbye to error-prone deployments with manual dependency tracking and hello to Solution Central!
Releasing this fall as part of 8.5, Solution Central is a brand-new cloud service coming to the ThingWorx platform to enable you to efficiently manage your ThingWorx applications across the enterprise.
With Solution Central, you’ll no longer be caught chasing missing dependencies (like ThingShapes, Mashups, templates or library extensions). Solution Central automatically identifies and packages up the dependencies required for your application. No more manual dependency madness!
Whether you’re managing many apps deployed to a few environments or a single app deployed to hundreds of environments, Solution Central allows you to accelerate your deployment through an intuitive UI or powerful APIs for automation.
Here’s how it works:
Begin by creating your application in Composer with a project.
Let Solution Central automatically package up all the artifacts and dependencies required for your application.
Allow Solution Central to publish your solution package to the cloud.
Deploy your application to your various environments (local servers, data centers, cloud systems) directly from Solution Central. It’s like your company has its own private app store.
Here’s a sneak peek of the Solution Central UI! Keep an eye out for the release of ThingWorx 8.5 at the end of Sept 2019 and begin accelerating your app deployment!
