Introduction to Environment


Plutora Environment Management enables you to visualize, book, schedule, and manage any contention of your non-Production environments. It also provides environment maintenance, as well as Change & Configuration Management functions. 

Here, you can add and maintain builds, book environments (TEBR and TECR) and view Environment Schedules, CI/CD Pipeline, and Environment Health Check Dashboard. You can also view a graphical representation of your Environments against Releases using the Impact Matrix feature of the Environment module. It gives you a complete control of your test environment management throughout the enterprise with a consolidated end-to end view of configuration, allocation and bookings.

Challenges of Environment Managers

Test Environment Management, if not properly managed, can be complicated. Environment requests arrive daily from multiple teams with unique needs, the environment configurations have to be perfect. Some of the major challenges faced by Environment Managers are:
  • Ineffective use of high-value Environments.
  • Lack of end-to-end visibility.
  • Inadequate resource allocation and coordination.
  • Missing or wrong components.
  • Imperfect audit trial.
You can overcome your Test Environment Challenges using Plutora’s Environment module.
