In the next few weeks Serena is going to be announcing important new versions of our ALM, Release and Deploy solutions.
Ever since Serena’s CEO, Greg Hughes, introduced the concept of “Move Fast Without Breaking Things” at our User Conference in Washington DC in February, we have seen an overwhelming acknowledgement from our customers and partners that this is the perfect encapsulation of what modern application development and deployment means to them.
For Highly Regulated Large Enterprises (we call them “HRLEs”) software is developed in the most demanding environments in the world. With a myriad of technologies, a dispersed workforce, new compliance and regulatory demands every day, time-to-market time-frames often counted in hours and with every methodology possible driving velocity and every tech innovation driving disruption these organizations face a critical challenge. How exactly can you “Move Fast Without Breaking Things?”
This summer we will see how that is achieved in the “Summer of Speed” launches of four of Serena’s flagship solutions.
In June we will have the first of these launches with our Release and Deploy solutions. These solutions are anchor-technologies for your DevOps infrastructure and are essential for your Continuous Delivery initiatives. With release frequencies accelerating and deployments stacking up on the threshold of production, sophisticated IT organizations, like those you find in the HRLEs, demand exceptional solutions to meet the challenges. Come back here for more information on Serena Release Control and Serena Deployment Automation.
In July the launch of our latest ALM (Application [Development] Lifecycle Management) solutions will be revealed. HRLEs need deep visibility into the activities of the development teams and developers need advanced tools to optimize their development efforts. This summer will see the fruit of the continuous innovation from the Serena development teams that will bring to life reality of a common platform for all the developers in the organization whether they are Agile or Waterfall or anything in between, whether they are developing for mobile or mainframe, for teams of 2 to 2,000, collocated or dispersed across 6 continents. Dimensions RM for requirements management and Dimensions CM for configuration management have long set the standard in ALM. These two solutions have been updated to bring new meaning to visualization as both a way to organize and manage the software delivery process. Watch this space for more information on Dimensions RM and Dimensions CM coming this summer.
