Streamline team-based app delivery

Behind most apps lies a team of developers working together to produce a great user experience or a powerful asset for their business. However, cumbersome release processes can hinder your team’s potential to perform at its best.

Heroku is a cloud-based platform as a service (PaaS) that provides a streamlined approach to building, deploying, and managing your apps. The platform removes friction in app deployment and operations, making it fast and easy for your team to build sophisticated apps using modern collaboration practices, such as continuous delivery.

App-centric, optimized for teams

Heroku offers the flexibility that your team needs to build custom apps using their favorite languages and frameworks, along with tooling that they already know and appreciate. You can take advantage of structured workflows that support agile development and continuous delivery practices, enabling your team to deploy apps as fast as you can build them. Heroku Teams provides additional team collaboration and administration tools that help organizations of any size to more effectively manage their apps and projects.

Fast app delivery

The Heroku Platform makes it easy to deploy apps as often as you need to. The process is fast and automated, giving your team extra time to focus on development.

Optimized for CI/CD

Test early and deploy often using an easy-to-use structured workflow for continuous integration and continuous delivery that includes features built into the platform.

Easy collaboration tools

Integrate your GitHub repositories with Heroku, get a complete visualization of your code delivery pipelines in real time, and spin up disposable review apps for immediate testing and approval.


Whether team members are on site or remote, everyone can simultaneously develop features on dev branches and collaborate on testing, reviewing, and deploying updates.

Polyglot platform

Heroku officially supports eight popular development languages and frameworks. Heroku Buildpacks extend the build system to support additional languages or customizations.

Bypass DevOps tasks

With a fully-managed platform, Heroku’s staff monitors uptime, performance, and infrastructure concerns, freeing your team from worrying about hardware or app management.
