Deploying software in today’s enterprise environments is an extremely expensive and inefficient process. The cost in terms of resources, time and revenue lost is actually astounding. I was on the phone with a large insurance company recently that was struggling with high costs and time to market issues with their main retail application.

Serena has partnered with CloudBees, the enterprise Jenkins company, to bring you live full-day summits with industry experts on Continuous Delivery. The first four summits have been sold out and well reviewed.

If we have a our own tool that supports part of the application development lifecycle we use it for our own development efforts. In fact the Serena development teams deploy the beta versions of our solutions straight into their production environments because they want exploit the cool-new-stuff just as much as you do!
When I sat down today to start writing about automated deployment in modern enterprises I thought I’d follow the Serena mantra and “drink our own champagne” too. So IRead More
