“ARO tools provide a combination of deployment automation, pipeline and environment management, and release orchestration capabilities to simultaneously improve the quality, velocity and governance of application releases,” noted Colin Fletcher, Laurie Wurster and Christopher Little in the Gartner Critical Capabilities for Application Release Orchestration*. “ARO tools enable enterprises to scale release activities across multiple, diverse and multi-generational teams (DevOps, etc.), technologies, development methodologies (e.g., Agile), delivery patterns (continuous, etc.), pipelines, processes and their supporting toolchains.”

“According to estimates, fewer than 20 percent of global enterprises have today implemented an ARO solution, but I bet they are all feeling pressure to deliver better, more secure software faster,” said Carmine Napolitano, CEO of Electric Cloud. “Electric Cloud has a deep understanding of the difficulties involved in coordinating and governing complex enterprise releases, and we’re very focused on helping organizations solve that problem. I believe this focus is paying off: Electric Cloud achieved the highest scores across all use cases. And, as a third-time Leader in Gartner’s associated 2018 Magic Quadrant for Automation Release Orchestration, we believe Electric Cloud also stands out with our positioning this year as furthest for completeness of vision.”

This vision and current production leadership, along with our notable large enterprise customer successes, makes Electric Cloud the defacto standard for Enterprise ARO. Market leaders including TIAA, Samsung, Qualcomm, Motorola, Cisco, and GM choose ElectricFlow because it provides:

  • A way to implement and share secure, repeatable and adaptable pipelines to deliver mainframe, monolithic and microservices applications
