XebiaLabs Named Cool Vendor for Release Management in Gartner Report
DevOpsXebiaLabs has been named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in the Cool Vendors in Release Management, 2011 report, published by analysts Ronni J. Colville, Kris Brittain and Donna Scott. XebiaLabs truly embodies a cool vendor as Gartner defines it as a company that offers a solution that is both innovative and impactful from a business level, enabling users to do things they couldn't do before. “With the right automation, release management is a key discipline that can significantly improve agility and ensure more-reliable change activities, resulting in improved availability,” says the report. “Release management is a critical process that will increasingly require cross-domain coordination and automation to reduce the realities of labor-intensive scripting, emails and phone calls – all of which result in long delivery cycles and interruptions to service.” This recognition shows the innovative, cross-industry solution that XebiaLabs has brought to market to help companies automate intricate deployment procedures. With the recent upgrade of XL Deploy 3.0, we have removed the complexity from managing deployments to help enhance productivity, eliminate risks and get applications to market faster, which has certainly peaked Gartner’s interest. We are pleased to see recognition of such release management solutions as XL Deploy among leading industry analysts, and are excited to see the industry grow as demand for automation and simpler deployments continues to increase. Congratulations to all the other COOL vendors!
