New features give enterprises an easier way to scale DevOps initiatives across projects and teams with end-to-end automation, cross-functional visibility and consistent processes
Electric Cloud, the leader in DevOps Release Automation, today announced the latest release of its industry-leading ElectricFlow DevOps Release Automation platform. The new release supports the company’s mission to advance DevOps in the enterprise by helping customers scale software delivery pipelines and DevOps best practices throughout the organization.
“The industry discussion has evolved from ‘how do I get started with DevOps?’ to ‘how do we scale our DevOps initiatives while addressing security, compliance and governance?’” said Steve Brodie, Electric Cloud’s CEO. “We are laser-focused on helping enterprises turn their software pathway to production from a laborious, slow and painful process into a competitive advantage. ElectricFlow offers new features designed specifically for the needs of the largest and most complex organizations on the planet – with some of our customers releasing updates from 40,000+ developers across 20,000+ applications on a single platform.”
In order to succeed with DevOps, large organizations need an end-to-end solution that allows them to standardize and automate their software deployment tools and processes as much as possible. This provides enterprises with consistent build, test and deployment procedures to speed up cycle times, eliminate configuration drift and bottlenecks in the pipeline, while also reducing IT capital expenditure and operating costs.
ElectricFlow provides even greater enhancements to further improve the orchestration and automation of an organization’s ‘Pathway to Production.’ New features include new artifact staging, automated rollbacks and simplified manual steps creation capabilities.

The platform’s proven scalability and extensibility, which allows organizations to automate any workflow and plug-in any tool or technology stack, has led many customers to set up ElectricFlow as a shared internal service that powers their software delivery across all teams and releases worldwide. This is consistent with observations from leading industry experts and research analysts who recommend a centralized DevOps Release Automation platform. “Automation adoption in any form is good,” noted Robert Naegle and Ronni J. Colville in a May 2015 Gartner Research report*, “but, ultimately, to deliver significant business value automation initiatives must be centralized, with common governance, leadership and management constructs.”
The industry is taking note. Recently, Ovum Research recognized Electric Cloud as a market leader for DevOps Release Management. Forrester Research also recognized Electric Cloud in its 2015 ARA Wave Report as a Strong Performer, with clear leadership in strategy as defined by vision, planned enhancements, scalability, extensibility, controllability and out-of-the-box, third-party plug-ins. The company recently announced record sales for its DevOps Release Automation solutions, and also has closed multiple large contracts over the last two quarters with several leading Financial Services firms, including a Fortune 10 bank, two leading electronic stock trading companies and one of the industry’s largest mortgage originators. It also secured a multi-year, multi-million dollar enterprise agreement with one of the largest networking companies in the world.
