Electric Cloud, the recognized leader in DevOps and Continuous Delivery software tools and solutions, has been named a leader in the newly released report, “The Forrester WaveTM: Continuous Delivery and Release Automation, Q4 2018” by Forrester Research, written by Charles Betz. In addition, the company received the highest score in both the Current Offering and Product Strategy categories.
The CDRA Revolution is Here
Last year’s WAVE marked the start of an evolution in Forrester’s analysis from Application Release Automation (ARA) to Continuous Delivery Release Automation. This proved to be especially timely, and with the CDRA market burgeoning, gone are the days of I&O teams being forced to acquire multiple point solution tools to gain the desired CDRA capabilities. According to the report, “Vendors are providing more robust integrated tooling and automation, including more sophisticated release modeling and choreography, as-code capabilities, application drift management, support for a broader spectrum of platforms, and increasing use of cognitive and machine learning.”
The Forrester report continues, “I&O teams must support the rapid delivery of applications to provide differentiated customer experiences that meet accelerating business expectations. However, faster delivery alone merely leads to customer disappointment when the software delivery process defers to velocity without also addressing quality. CDRA offerings address both these concerns.”
Electric Cloud Drives DevOps for CDRA
The breadth of features found in Electric Cloud’s unified Dev-to-Prod automation platform empowers the world’s largest organizations to scale DevOps to meet the demands of the business while also driving business results. “It is a meaningful achievement to not only be named as a Leader in this year’s Wave report, but also receive the highest score in both the Current Offering and Product Strategy categories,” said Carmine Napolitano, CEO of Electric Cloud. “One of our core values here at Electric Cloud is customer success; which is why we built the ElectricFlow platform to allow teams to implement fast, adapt easily, and have the comprehensive insight and control of all their releases at any scale. Our customers have an advantage, and we believe that this year’s Wave results validate the commitment we have to their success and innovation in the DevOps community.”

Built for the enterprise, the company’s scalable platform provides deployment automation, release orchestration, and DevOps Insight.
