Opsera Arrow

Keywest Networks

"With this automated solution, the productivity of our engineers improved by 25%. Now, I can see the development and quality metrics of individual contributors."

Kishore Gandham
Founder & CEO KeyWest Networks


"We had built our own pipelines and tooling over a two year period... the Opsera team built the integration in two days. I feel like the holistic approach that the Opsera is taking to solve the Orchestrating problems is a key step in the evolution of DevOps."

Kevin Railsback
Senior Director of Technical Operations, Reflektion

Continuous Orchestration

The investment into Continuous Orchestration will not only pay back in dividends but also in the empowerment of developers to ship core features, faster, and with fewer defects.

Declan Morris
Former Splunk CIO


Opsera solution provided us end to end visibility of build and deployment tools across our entire DevOps environment. A holistic view of logs across all our tools and pipelines helped us quickly identify inefficiencies from unwanted plugins, and uncover a flaky test case instantly that would be nearly impossible for us to catch manually.

VP of Engineering, IDT

Value Stream Management

"Centralized automation and orchestration across the software delivery lifecycle are crucial to gain the velocity and visibility DevOps teams need to meet business goals. Opsera offers a no-code, intelligent DevOps solution that’s been missing from the marketplace."

Eric Robertson
Industry Evangelist, Value Stream Management


As software-based innovation advances beyond a focus on speed, CI/CD pipelines also need to evolve to address complexity, and offer greater governance and reporting. Faced with existing tool sprawl and challenges from adopting distributed applications and microservices architectures, the need for better orchestration that addresses both tool choice and automation will only increase, enable and enhance value delivery.

Zach Poley, CTO, Clear Ventures


"Opsera’s approach of no code addition of security gates and thresholds into every stage of the pipelines by out of the box integration to a choice of security tools greatly improves the proactive security posture for software delivery. Unified real time security insights is very useful for security managers and adds to the value proposition."

DevOps Institute

Opsera's demo demonstrates the potential for the best end-to-end grip in DevOps. If executed well and adoption takes off, this could easily become a new standard in DevOps that gives flexibility to choose any tools.

"Our global business diversity and growth adds up to highly distributed engineering teams, complex processes and compliance challenges. Efficient delivery of new features and process standardization is tough. Opsera’s vision for CI/CD enablement and compliance has powerful applications at Uber."
