SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud (http://electric-cloud.com), the leader in DevOps Release Automation, today announced the company was recognized as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Application Release Automation, Q3 2016, by Forrester Research Inc. Electric Cloud was among the select companies invited to participate in the independent report, which assessed nine Application Release Automation (ARA) vendors across 38 criteria.
"ElectricFlow automates and standardizes application deployments throughout the software delivery process," the Forrester report states. "It shows strong release package modeling, scalability, and market approach while also showing sound support for third-party integrations and their execution road map."
Forrester evaluated Electric Cloud's ElectricFlow DevOps Release Automation platform (http://electric-cloud.com/products/electricflow), which gives teams a flexible, model-driven approach to software delivery and helps reduce the cost and risk of software releases. It automates manual, error-prone builds, tests and deployments, allowing IT to frequently and reliably deploy mission-critical applications at scale and avoid service interruptions to their end users. ElectricFlow is also the industry's first and only end-to-end DevOps Release Automation platform that provides native, push-button support for advanced deployment strategies, such as Blue/Green, Canary, and Rolling Deployments (see news release dated 7/19/16 "Electric Cloud Announces Industry's First End-to-end DevOps Release Automation Platform with Native, Push-Button Rolling Deployments").
"We are helping the largest companies in the world meet rising business expectations by transforming their software releases from a laborious, slow and risky process into a strong competitive advantage," said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. "2016 has been a great year for Electric Cloud so far, with lots of commercial success and recognition from industry analyst firms like Gartner, Ovum and now Forrester, who I believe further validate our position as leaders in this nascent industry."
