CTO.ai Launches SlackOps; The First Slack Native Serverless DevOps Solution for Remote Development Teams

By bridging Slack’s interface and easy-to-use DevOps shortcuts, the new platform integration improves communication and collaboration and removes accessibility barriers for developers working remotely

Today, CTO.ai, a platform for rapidly scaling productivity in development teams, launched SlackOps, a first-of-its-kind product for developers that allows them to automate tasks and work together in real-time as commands are executed. By allowing developers to share complex ChatOps workflows right from Slack’s command line, the tool improves productivity, reduces costs, and eliminates errors among distributed workforces.

With 12.5 million daily active users across the globe, Slack has been adopted widely by enterprise teams to expedite communications, decrease meetings and improve transparency among most industries. But for developers, collaboration in Slack’s chat interfaces remains complex, insecure and time-consuming.

Meet SlackOps - A Chat-first approach to Serverless DevOps in Slack.

Now serving as the bridge between the familiar and intuitive Slack interface and secure DevOps workflows, SlackOps requires a single app install and gives developers the ability to collaborate on projects from any computer, tablet or mobile phone. The new approach saves teams from investing hundreds of hours in designing complex ChatOps integrations and can improve developer efficiency by up to 200%.

CTO.ai’s SlackOps improves developer team success in several key areas:

  • Discovery: The app gives access to CTO.ai’s public registry of developer shortcuts created by their community.
  • Creation: Developers can write custom code in any language to automate your teams’ unique workflows.
  • Secure Sharing: Any team member can write an op once and share it across their entire team securely in the Slack UI. 
  • Efficiency: Advanced developers can accelerate the onboarding of junior team members with an easy way to provide access to the Ops they need to execute faster.
  • Observability:  Workflows have observability by default, ensuring that cross-functional communication is clear and concise.
  • Insights: Over time, team leads will be able to surface unique insights and metrics on work and team performance.

“As the world moves to a  remote workforce, developers need better collaboration tools to streamline tasks and ship products faster,” said Kyle Campbell, Founder & CEO of CTO.ai. “By providing one shared command line as a control plane for DevOps via Slack, we’re poised to help millions of developers simplify everything from product releases to cloud provisioning, to employee onboarding. Users can now write custom DevOps workflows once and run them as SlackOps from anywhere - even on mobile.”

“Previously, this (DevOps) work happened outside of Slack and you never knew what was going on,” said Kyle Smyth, CTO at Offstreet Technology.  “I like the CTO.ai Slack Integration because the entire team can see what is going on.”

The launch comes on the heels of CTO’s $7.5M USD in seed funding led by Tiger Global and Slack Fund. The funding coincided with the launch of CTO’s Ops Platform, which provides a registry of shortcuts that allows developer teams to streamline tasks and increase productivity 10x. 

CTO.ai is already being used by customers including DailyHive, Communo and Offstreet Technology among others with more enterprise products planned for the coming months.  For more information on the SlackOps or to sign up for access to CTO.ai’s Ops Platform, please visit CTO.ai.
