Electric Cloud Accelerates Efforts to Lead Continuous Delivery Adoption New products, thought leadership alliance and fitness model framework extend Electric Cloud's leadership position in enterprise Continuous Delivery
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud (www.electric-cloud.com), the leader in enterprise Continuous Delivery, today rolled out its new corporate strategy to drive the adoption and scale of Continuous Delivery initiatives – from small teams to large enterprises. Building on its 10 years of experience helping global IT organizations accelerate and automate software delivery, Electric Cloud now offers the industry's most complete and automated build, test and deploy solution designed to power Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery initiatives. Along with its re-branding, the company today launched two new solutions, ElectricFlow and ElectricAccelerator Huddle, and a number of thought leadership initiatives designed to drive Continuous Delivery adoption and success for the industry.
"We believe that every business is a software business – or needs to become one in a hurry. Regardless of whether their applications are deployed to a website, mobile device or car, keeping software in a release-ready state at all times – the very definition of Continuous Delivery – is critical to remaining agile, and meeting customer demands," said Steve Brodie, CEO for Electric Cloud. "For 10 years we have been 100 percent focused on helping customers optimize their software delivery pipelines, making us the recognized leader in large-scale software delivery automation and acceleration. With today's announcements, we are again leading the industry with the first and only end-to-end solution to unify build, test and deployment processes under a single, easy to adopt family of products."
Many large organizations developing mobile, embedded systems and enterprise web/IT applications already turn to Electric Cloud to automate and streamline complex software delivery processes thanks to a proven track record and unparalleled experience in these large and complex development environments. Electric Cloud is on the move, recently closing on a $12 million Series E round of funding, growing its staff to more than 140 employees, moving its headquarters into the resurgent downtown San Jose business district, and setting up another office in downtown SF. The company is also busy innovating around new technology offerings, together with industry influencers, customers and partners.
"The need to accelerate software delivery is greater than ever. This journey that started with Agile marches on with continuous delivery and DevOps, which has dramatically improved code quality, lead times and time to market," said Gene Kim, author of The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win. "Electric Cloud makes continuous delivery attainable and manageable, allowing large enterprise organizations to automate software delivery, making it practical to adopt continuous delivery. This is a capability that every organization needs to win in the marketplace."
Among the moves the company made to advance Continuous Delivery:
Product Innovation – two new solutions for Continuous Delivery automation and acceleration:
ElectricFlow®: a new family of Continuous Delivery applications that power Continuous Delivery at scale. ElectricFlow features a new deployment automation application called Deploy that automates and standardizes software deployments throughout the delivery process.
ElectricAccelerator® Huddle®: a free product that dramatically accelerates software builds and tests for development teams. It empowers teams to be more agile and productive by tapping into unused desktop CPU capacity within a peer-to-peer group of developers to reduce cycle times.
