At a time when DevOps culture sweeps the software development landscapes round the globe, CA Technologies, feels emboldened when the company has been positioned in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for application release automation (ARA) domain.
Gartner assessed vendors that offer application release automation (ARA) tools that provide a combination of automation, environment modeling and release coordination capabilities to simultaneously improve the quality and velocity of application releases. Gartner evaluated CA Technologies’ ARA capability—which provides advanced capabilities to help organizations manage a complex and maturing continuous software delivery pipeline—and finally put the company in the celebrated Magic Quadrant.
“End-to-end automation of the software code pipeline is a requirement for agile organizations focused on quickly bringing innovations to market,” said Richard Gerdis, Vice President, Devops, Asia Pacific and Japan, CA Technologies. “We consider our positioning in the Leader’s quadrant by Gartner recognition of our commitment to providing an integrated and open continuous delivery ecosystem that enables organizations to deliver new applications to market quicker, with higher quality, and at a lower cost”, viewed Gerdis. As per Gartner report, “The ARA tools are a key part of enabling the DevOps goal of achieving continuous delivery with large numbers of rapid, small releases.”
The Gartner report also states that the Leaders Quadrant represents those vendors that are pushing the ARA market forward, including those that are comprehensively investing in all major ARA capabilities, which, when taken as a whole, reflects the diversity of enterprise needs.
