Capture common elements of configuration
Allows you to see the standard build processes, source control rules and testing reports for a build project. Identifies variances in project to accommodate unique attributes, such as a checkbox for understanding whether code coverage reports have been setup for the project or not. Defines a project in the tool-based template using answers generated from a short, automated form about the variances.
Understand application dependencies
Enables you to understand application dependencies built from a collection of third party and internally developed libraries. Helps to ensure that, when a library is changed, the dependent applications are rebuilt and problems are tied back to the library. Generates dependency graphs for outlining the makeup of your complex applications with dozens or hundreds of dependencies that span several layers deep.
Central teams set up security rules and build templates
Project teams can more easily spin up their own projects based on templates without access to other teams. Teams can more easily control who can see and run without spending a lot of time configuring security.
