Automated and Configurable Packaging – Powerful rules for creating packages across environments, enabling automation and reducing risks.

Flexible Deployment – Deploy how you want; use a built in connector or create a package to use with your own deployment processes in Octopus, VSTS, Gulp, Powershell, or the tool of your choice. Alternatively, deploy entire solutions directly from Visual Studio in one click.

Code Generation – Have your code written for you. Save time by building up your data models automatically.

Build and Deploy Validation – Catch issues and traps before they break your site. Validate your environment and projects at build-time, instead of hearing about it from your website users.
