SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud (http://electric-cloud.com/), the leader in Adaptive Release Orchestration and Continuous Delivery, today announced its flagship product, ElectricFlow, has been selected by EMA Research as a Top 3 enterprise software product in its new report, "EMA Top 3 Enterprise Decision Guide for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)." The report provides pragmatic guidance to enterprises on how to optimally benefit from AI and ML and continuously release better software. This is the second year in a row Electric Cloud has been recognized by EMA Research, previously selected as a "Top Three" in the 2017 report, "Ten Priorities for Hybrid Cloud, Containers and DevOps in 2017."

EMA research has found that AI and ML is the number one strategic enterprise IT investment priority in 2018, followed closely by container management and orchestration, and DevOps pipeline automation. At the same time, most enterprises are still struggling to understand the basics of how to successfully evaluate AI and ML solutions, how to put project performance metrics in place, and how to handle key limitations of AI and ML technologies today.
"As organizations expand DevOps initiatives to include more and more applications and application teams, getting visibility into and balancing the risk-reward for each release becomes much more difficult," said Torsten Volk, managing research director of containers, DevOps, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence at EMA. "Electric Cloud ElectricFlow has automated the data collection and analysis of DevOps toolchain data, and is leveraging AI/ML to provide recommendations that ensure valuable software can be released at the shortest possible time with the lowest possible cost and risk."
DevOps toolchains continuously create vast amounts of data originating from numerous tools across the entire software delivery process. AI and ML can now help companies continuously learn from the massive amounts of data generated, which could ultimately result in a recipe for achieving universal DevOps success across all of the diverse teams and roles within the enterprise. According to the report, compliance is the number one pain point in DevOps today. By gathering all customer, team and project specific data in the DevOps toolchain, the ability to leverage AI and ML to help companies continuously take risk, cost and anxiety out of software releases is a game changer.
ElectricFlow, the leading application release orchestration platform, uses deep learning to identify patterns in release pipelines and gauge the likelihood of software release success. By applying machine learning algorithms to the massive amounts of data generated by tool chains, ElectricFlow DevOps Foresight provides predictive analytics to develop a risk score metric that predicts the outcomes of releases before they head into production. Taking predictive analytics even further, the platform is also able to illustrate where to improve pipelines based on developer influence, code complexity influence, and more.
"It is an honor to be recognized by EMA as a leading provider of actionable DevOps insight for development and operations teams through the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques," said Carmine Napolitano, CEO of Electric Cloud. "We pride ourselves in helping customers save hundreds of hours of work and relieve unnecessary anxiety related to releasing new products to market. By enabling data-driven insights about their software delivery toolchains and processes, they have the foresight to know a release's success rate by looking at past successes and failures, build complexity, author profiles and more."

Some of the key benefits of artificial intelligence and machine learning as identified in the research include:
- Freeing up 30 percent of developer time used to support infrastructure
- Eliminating operational silos as the root cause of cost, quality, and speed bottlenecks in DevOps
- Proactively addressing operational issues and minimize mean time to repair (MTTR)
