Forrester names IBM UrbanCode as a Continuous Delivery and Release Automation leader!
IBM is pleased to announce that IBM UrbanCode has been positioned as a leader in the “The Forrester Wave™: Continuous Delivery And Release Automation, Q3 2017” report.
Over the last decade, many organizations have adopted DevOps practices to streamline how they develop and release software. However, a recent Forrester survey of 237 DevOps professionals revealed that many still struggle to achieve their IT objectives due to a lack of delivery pipeline automation (66%) and manual approval processes (42%) resulting in low satisfaction (64%)1.
Clearly there is room for improvement and there are several continuous delivery and release automation solutions mentioned in the report that can potentially address these challenges. The new Forrester Wave can help you choose the one that is right for your organization. You need a solution that is strong today - and Forrester’s Current Offering metric speaks to that. You also need the solution to grow with you as your needs evolve - and Forrester’s Strategy metric speaks to that. Finally, you should work with a vendor that will be around to support you today and in the future - Market Presence is as good a proxy for that stability as anything. Pick from vendors who are strong in all three categories to make the best long-term investment.
IBM UrbanCode has proven to deliver quantified and qualified business results across multiple industries – finance, retail, insurance, healthcare just to name a few.
