A selection of screenshots from the Enov8 Environment Manager. Built and aligned to our very own EMMi (Environment Management Maturity Index).
Understand your environments and systems, both holistically and granularly, by mapping them inside Ecosystem.
Live models will support real-time visualization*, cross team upskilling, analysis, trouble shooting and decision making.
*Visualize from different perspectives e.g.
By Env Lanes i.e. SIT, UAT, Stagging & Production
By Project (or Sprints)
#1 on the EMMi
Understand the demand, bookings and usage of your environments and systems.
This will ensure you avoid unforeseen contention, proactively housekeep (avoid paying for resources and services you don’t need) and ensure future planning & coordination is shifted left.
Ecosystem provides Environment Booking Forms, Demand/Usage Reports (multiple perspectives) and Contention Analysis features.

Environment Planning & Coordination
Schedule & Track Environment Events and Deployments across the team with centralised calendaring and event tracking mechanisms.
Simplify collaboration with other teams by providing lean methods for information capture and sharing.
EcoSystem comes with:
Event Insight Dashboards
Event Tracking Kanban’s

Environment Service Management
Promote “Lean” Service.
Zero or Too little ITSM means environment changes & incidents can’t be seen nor controlled. The impact is environment instability and low IT productivity.
Too much ITSM typically results in bloated workflows that cause unnecessary delays and prevent your teams being agile.
Enov8 provides a pragmatic
/lean ITSM capability and can also be integrated into your existing service and ticketing tools.
#4 on the EMMi
Enov8 comes with an advanced interface that allows you to create, read or update “any” object automatically as well as manually.
Add a few easy lines of code to your Infrastructure, Data or Application scripts & have them update EcoSystem ”Meta-Data” automatically.
#5-7 on the EMMi.
The Enterprise edition also comes with Visual Orchestrate, a Self-Service Portal for automation sharing.
Understand Environment Health, Usage Activities, Behaviour and Opportunities for Improvement.
Use rich “Out of the Box” Insights to analyse and optimize. Remove Waist and Reduce Costs.
Tip! Extend reporting by building your own executive dashboards that leverage the platforms “enterprise intelligence”.

Enterprise Release Management
Get these Release Trains moving. The Enov8 Release Manager is a simple to understand framework that provides powerful insight and enterprise release management capability.
Define your Enterprise Release / Portfolios. Capture and track key information like: RAG Status, Percentage Complete, Release Status and Release Type.
Add In-Scope Projects to these Releases/Portfolio’s and track their progress through a single-pain of glass.
Release Master Scheduling
Portfolio manage all your projects through central master scheduling capability.
Define key milestones that each project, in the release, should be aligning to.
Inject quality gates (parameters/ deliverable) that projects must deliver before they can continue.
Release Change Calendars
Ensure all your release and change events are planned and communicated using centralised calendaring.
The enov8 release calendar is an interactive calendar that allows you to manage your Development, Test and Production Releases, Changes and block out periods for other actions like Patching or Change-Freeze.
Release Implementation Planning
Use implementation Plans (aka Deployment Runsheets) to standardise production (& pre-production) deployment day procedures.
Enov8 offer teams the flexibility to build Implementation “Runsheets” that support both manual and automated tasks. Quick-Launch or Integrate with your favourite tools for automation streamlining.
Deployment Operations are invariably done by many teams: Applications, Data & Infrastructure teams and often it is hard to keep track of what is where.
Enov8 Deployment Version Insights is a great way to simplify this.
Just add a few easy lines of code to your deployment scripts and keep track of your versions across systems and environment lanes.
Understand your Releases and their composition (projects and systems).
Visualize important real-time data points like Status, Risk and Complexity.
Continually improve through retrospection. Use Enov8 Post Implementation Reviews (PIRs) to identify opportunities for continual improvement.
