Who are Ankyra?

We are a London based software product company focused on release engineering, managing lifecycles and providing Continuous Delivery. We build and offer EscapeKit, a fully featured Continuous Delivery tool which enables and supports automated releasing.

What makes Ankyra unique?

Too often we have seen DevOps solutions fail to provide a seamless experience when trying to do to trivial tasks. We've seen the overheads this can create and the ad hoc management processes required to achieve these tasks we would consider business as usual.

  • We believe the right tool for the job should enable experimentation. We want you to not feel locked into the way things are, we want you to explore how things could be.
  • We believe that the tool you use should encourage reusability, reducing delivery times while keeping complexity low.
  • We believe that automation is the way forwards and that nothing should be a barrier to that.
  • We believe that the tools should help you deliver at the speed of business.
  • We believe that EscapeKit is the right Continous Delivery platform for you.
