SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud (http://electric-cloud.com/), the leader in DevOps Release Automation, today announced it closed 2015 with its strongest sales quarter in the company's history – driven by strong demand for its ElectricFlow DevOps Automation platform and new Fortune 500 customers within financial services, retail and government sectors. The company's record sales are due to its technical innovation and continued industry thought leadership, along with the maturity of DevOps initiatives that call for the streamlined automation of processes across the entire software delivery lifecycle.
"Electric Cloud had a breakout year as our products and expertise met the growing market need to deliver software applications faster as part of strategic Agile and DevOps initiatives in large enterprises," said Steve Brodie, CEO for Electric Cloud. "From the successful launch of ElectricFlow Release, to introducing our ElectricFlow Community Edition, to co-hosting the second annual DevOps Enterprise Summit, the company really hit on all cylinders, resulting in the best Q4 and 2H in our history. This momentum bodes well for even stronger growth in 2016."
