APPSECUTE WAS ACQUIRED BY ACTIVESTATE IN MAY 2013.
Appsecute’s collaborative application management platform allows developers and IT operations staff to see everything that’s happening with their software components and applications at a glance. Real-time status is combined with a Facebook-style timeline to allow teams to collaborate to deal with issues.
Appsecute uses ‘connectors’ to bring events in from a variety of services, and to allow people to go back and to take action when there is a problem. Any issues or problems appear on a Facebook-style timeline, where people can add comments and discuss who will deal with the issue and what to do. Code changes, support issues, build and test results, and alerts from monitoring systems all become visible - anything that connectors make available.
Building Appsecute specifically for developers and operations has allowed some unique and useful features to be provided. Appsecute shows the real-time status of software components at a glance - components go red if there’s a problem, and get cleared again when the problem is resolved. And those problems can be anything that impacts the team - urgent support tickets, failed builds or tests, or operational issues with production systems.
