Five common tools to make digital product updates simple

Following our post on strategies to maximize your digital investment, here are five commonly used tools for managing updates and patches for digital products:


  1. GitHub: GitHub is a popular, web-based platform that helps with version control and developer collaboration. It allows teams to manage code changes, track issues, and efficiently release updates. It’s the world’s largest coding community, and many companies and organizations use it to facilitate project management.
  2. Jira: Jira is a project management tool that enables teams to plan, track, and release software updates. Ready-made templates for agile, scrum, bug tracking, and DevOps make customization simple. A range of reporting tools help to track progress.
  3. Bitbucket: Bitbucket is a cloud-based service that lets developers store, manage, and track code changes. It provides features for hosting Git repositories and managing code branches. Bitbucket provides a central place to collaborate on source code, plan projects, and test and deploy code.
  4. Azure DevOps: Azure DevOps is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform offering tools to manage software projects from planning and development through testing and deployment. It includes features for version control, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), and release management.
  5. CircleCI: CircleCI is a continuous integration and delivery platform that automates the process of building, testing, and deploying software updates. It integrates with version control systems like GitHub and Bitbucket to trigger automated workflows whenever code changes are made.


These tools can help streamline the process of releasing updates and patches for digital products, ensuring smooth deployment and effective management of changes.
