Electric Cloud, the leader in enterprise Continuous Delivery and DevOps automation, today announced that the company was cited as a ‘Strong Performer’ in the Q2 2015 The Forrester Wave™: Application Release Automation, Q2 2015 report. Electric Cloud also received the highest score for overall vendor strategy. The company’s Application Release Automation (ARA) product, ElectricFlow Deploy, automates and standardizes application deployments throughout the software delivery process.
“Electric Cloud is proud to be named a strong performer in the Forrester Wave,” said Steve Brodie, CEO of Electric Cloud. “We strive every day to help our customers deploy high-quality, innovative software to improve customer experiences and create value for the company. Helping the world ‘deliver better software faster’ is more than just a slogan to us – it’s what we work toward each and every day.”
Electric Cloud’s Application Release Automation (ARA) product, ElectricFlow Deploy, automates and standardizes application deployments throughout the software delivery process. In the report, Forrester states, “ElectricFlow Deploy has strong abstraction for integration with the modern service delivery (MSD) life cycle and sound abstraction in moving releases. Also, ElectricFlow Deploy has strong overall support for strategy.”
Forrester evaluated vendors against 33 criteria grouped into three high-level categories: Current Offering, Strategy and Market presence. Strategy included the four criteria of: 1) innovation through vision and planned enhancements; 2) extensibility through ability to control the product and the product’s ability to control; 3) re-usability through third-party plug-ins; 4) pricing strategies that resonate with buyer needs.
“Customers have never been more empowered. Brand loyalty has given way to experience loyalty; when customers’ needs are not met, they switch allegiances without a thought. Therefore, many companies are focusing on delivering applications faster to improve customer experiences and meet these rising expectations,” wrote Amy DeMartine and Kurt Bittner, Senior and Principal Analysts and authors of the report. “Application release automation is the critical final step in the delivery pipeline of applications to improve customer experiences.”
