CLEVELAND, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UrbanCode, the global leader in enterprise build, deploy and release automation, today was named to the SD Times 100 in the Development Tools & Continuous Integration group. This is the fourth consecutive year that UrbanCode has been selected to the SD Times 100.
The 2012 SD Times 100 "represents a snapshot of the leaders of the software development industry during the calendar year 2011." During that timeframe UrbanCode launched uDeploy – their Application Release Automation software, continued to improve their Continuous Delivery platform, AnthillPro, and announced uBuild.
"I believe our continued dedication to deployment automation, release management, and environment provisioning – areas with no prior "good enough" solutions – is a major factor in us winning this award," said UrbanCode CEO, Maciej Zawadzki. "We've driven this industry forward since 2001 when it was primarily Dev focused. Now, Agile is spilling over into the Ops side of the house, and we're right there along with it with our DevOps Platform tools."
UrbanCode's software powers mission critical processes in enterprise IT teams via self-service automation, efficiency, and scalability. Their products currently serve Fortune 500 companies across the globe; delivering faster cycle times and superior reliability through automation:
- uDeploy has decreased deployment errors by 90% for a well-known travel website
- Trading platforms for several global financial companies have sped time to market, slashed deployment times, and significantly reduced errors with AnthillPro
- Retailers have been able to automate their entire delivery pipeline – build through release – saving valuable time and resources
For 2012 UrbanCode was included in the brand new Development Tools & CI category by SD Times. "The creation of this new group reflects growing awareness towards products that deliver self-service automation for IT team," said Eric Minick, Lead Consultant for UrbanCode. "With the demand for software releases rapidly growing the pressure for Dev and Ops teams to deliver faster and better has never been higher. Our software directly addresses these needs, and we're proud to be recognized for our efforts."
UrbanCode enables organizations to deliver software to production servers faster (physical, virtual, or cloud); resulting in decreased time to market, and accelerated pace of innovation. uDeploy, our Deployment Automation product, establishes repeatable, error-free, scalable application deployment processes, and provides visibility into what version is where. uBuild, our Build Management product, establishes repeatable and traceable build processes for large organizations with hundreds or thousands of developers, and provides visibility into organizational best practices; allowing development teams to scale while maintaining quality. At UrbanCode, our approach is to harness the inherent capabilities of computers – the handling repetitive tasks in an error-free manner – so people can focus on critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving.
