Quality of Toolkit Components
• validated in real life scenarios
• compatible and integrated
• same user directory
• action logs
• web GUI
• extendable by rich plugin ecosystem
• optimized licensing cost

Toolkit Advantages
• helps identifying problems during early stages
• reduces de development and maintenance time and costs
• reduces the annoying activities (thus improving the work experience)
• reduces risks (data loss, availability, scalability, budget, privacy, deadline)
• adds predictability, visibility and control to IT operations
• supports team scalability and simple onboarding/offboarding members
• efficient management of software projects
• sustains code quality
• organize the tools and systems

Issue Tracking – Sprint Board

Issue Tracking – Example

Issue Tracking – Create Issue

Issue Tracking – Pie Chart

Issue Tracking – Burndown Chart

Issue Tracking – Project Time Tracking

Issue Tracking – User Timesheet Report

Issue Tracking – CI Connected

Revision Control – Commits

Revision Control – Branches

Revision Control – Graph

Code Review – Merge Requests
Merge request should be approved by maintainers.
To reduce merge requests effort a developer can be assigned for intermediate review.

Code Review – Feedback

Build Repository – Artifacts

Build Repository – Configure

Continuous Integration – Capabilities
Continuous integration (CI) is a practice of frequent merges to prevent
merge and code quality problems.
Integration can include (and it is not limited to):
• compiling/build creation
• code analysis (for errors, bugs, duplicates, standards, security, complexity)
• automated testing (unit, integration, UI, black box, user actions)
• enforce minimum performance requirements
• generating automated comment-based documentation
• triggering activities after success or failure integrations

Continuous Delivery – Capabilities
Continuous delivery (CD) is a practice in which teams produce software in short
cycles, ensuring that the software can be reliably released at any time.
Delivery can include (and it is not limited to):
• auto deploy from existing builds
• control env variables
• secure manipulation of passwords and secrets
• deploy native apps (Win, Linux, Unix)
• deploy sites (Apache, IIS, Nginx)
• manage data bases
• manage containers
• deploy VMs in various hypervisors
• deploy instances in various public clouds
• automated jobs control

CI&CD – Pipelines

CI&CD – Workflow

CI&CD – Pipeline Stages
Jobs can be run:
● locally
● using Docker containers
● using cloud Docker containers
● remote over SSH or WinRM

User Directory
 central user management
 all toolkit components can use LDAP authentication

VPN – Client
 Easy to establish both remote-access and site-to-site VPN.
 SSL-VPN Tunneling on HTTPS to pass through NATs and firewalls.
 Ethernet-bridging (L2) and IP-routing (L3) over VPN
 OpenVPN compatible
 All-in-one solution (DHCP, ACL, fine user control)

VPN – Server

Simplision Services
1. Toolkit deployment (infrastructure and software)
2. Implementing customer’s flows
3. Operations (flow changes, updates, maintenance, monitoring)
4. Lifecycle optimization
5. User training
