[ANN] 360Deploy Simplifies Production Database Development

Discussion created by 360Works on Sep 1, 2017

Atlanta, GA — August 31, 2017 — 360Works, a leading FileMaker product developer, innovator, and Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of their newest product, 360Deploy. 360Deploy automates and simplifies the process of rolling out updated database versions to a production FileMaker Server.


360Deploy solves the age-old problem of making development changes on one FileMaker database and the need to merge updates with a live production database hosted on FileMaker Server. Developers working on a file can deploy changes made to their database structure and import the data at the click of a button. It is a hands-free, robust tool designed to give developers a safe and efficient migration process. Currently, the methods to handle such a process can include tedious data imports, risky live file changes, or using the separation model. 360Deploy helps developers cut back on downtime and the tedious labor typically associated with the deployment process. 360Deploy keeps safety first! It backs up the production solution in archived, timestamped folders prior to import. For large databases, it supports a scheduling feature to run imports overnight.


360Deploy is for anyone who wants to do development on a separate copy of their database, rather than risk making changes on a live production server. It is especially beneficial for FileMaker Developers with a vertical market solution. With a few simple steps, they can make a change on their development server and deploy the change to the live production server for their entire user base. FileMaker Developers in a single company will also find 360Deploy very useful. While the company utilizes a FileMaker solution in day-to-day operations, the developer can make changes that will not interrupt workflow. FileMaker Development companies can also benefit from the time-saving effects of 360Deploy — no more spending the day on tedious, lengthy methods to update a solution for customers!


360Deploy was previewed and demonstrated at the 2017 FileMaker Developer Conference in Phoenix, Arizona. The product received large crowds at demonstrations and a warm welcome, with developers describing it as “the only piece missing” in their FileMaker solution. Johan Hedman, another FBA Platinum developer, tweeted that “The 360Deploy product from @360Works is probably the best #FileMaker related product I have seen in many years.”

360Deploy is available for purchase with a variety of licensing options at 360works.com/360Deploy.


360Works Portfolio Bundle subscribers will receive an Enterprise license of 360Deploy included with their subscription at no additional charge.
