SAN MATEO, Calif. - Oct 24, 2012 - Serena Software, the leader in Orchestrated IT solutions, today announced its recognition as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Application Life-Cycle Management, Q4 2012 report*. Serena was recognized for its ALM offering, strategy and market presence.
“Serena has made impressive advances at both the individual tool and suite level. Central to its product strategy is ‘orchestration,’ a vision of ALM as an ongoing, rhythmic activity. Not surprisingly, given this vision of a regular flow of activity (conceive, build, test, deploy), Serena has one of the best workflow designers available. Serena's recent enhancements to its ALM portfolio, such as the Serena Release Manager, provide more support in this end-to-end orchestration model,” the report stated.
The report went on to say, “Serena has recognized how important it is for organizations to effectively orchestrate the larger ‘meta-process’ of software development and delivery, which spans the typical activities (coding, testing, building, etc.) that guide the development efforts of other commercial and open source tools.”
Serena received among the highest vendor scores for integration and customization, rating a perfect 5 out of 5 score on both. Further, according to the report, “Serena tells a very clear story about the challenge of orchestrating development and delivery in large IT organizations and how its products address those challenges.”
“We are quite pleased to be recognized an ALM leader,” said Steve Brodie, Group VP and General Manager for Serena Software. “We believe the results of the 2012 Forrester Wave™ for ALM affirm our innovative market leadership, while our considerable market footprint and large engineering and field resources make us an ideal partner for enterprises from Stockholm to Sydney.”
Serena's unique orchestrated approach to ALM automates end-to-end application delivery, helping IT organizations efficiently capture all demand, easily define business requirements, manage software changes throughout the development lifecycle and crisply deploy releases with confidence. Serena’s 4,000 active enterprise customers who span the globe, encompassing almost one million users, enjoy greater visibility, faster time to market, higher stakeholder satisfaction and lower development costs.
