The report is designed to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals make the right choice when looking for CDRA solutions for their development and operations (DevOps) automation.  In the report, author Charles Betz (Principal Analyst serving Infrastructure & Operations professionals) led an evaluation of 15 vendors and researched, analyzed, and scored them.

"Electric Cloud offers one of the deepest CDRA products emerging from the RA market, and has maintained a strong commitment to supporting the DevOps community," the Forrester report states. "Electric Cloud provides release automation across a wide variety of current and legacy technologies, and via its ElectricFlow product, provides higher-order release management and end-to-end digital value stream visibility. It also has its own build manager for organizations seeking a single vendor across the digital pipeline. Electric Cloud is ahead of other CDRA products evaluated in applying advanced analytics to continuous delivery (e.g. risk scoring)."

"We believe being named a Leader in Forrester's report and achieving the highest scores in the ‘Strategy' and ‘Current Offering' categories underscores Electric Cloud's commitment to market-leading innovation," said Carmine (CJ) Napolitano, CEO of Electric Cloud. "ElectricFlow provides game-changing control and visibility into complex enterprise pipelines and releases - across any combination of monolithic, mainframe and microservice-based applications. As our customers continue to make big bets on DevOps, we help them safely adapt to, and take advantage of, the massive and continual technological shifts underway. We work hard every day to empower our customers to transform software releases from a chore into a true competitive advantage."

As noted in the report, Electric Cloud also places a heavy emphasis on supporting the DevOps community. "DevOps doesn't come in a box, it requires skilled people to make it work," continued Napolitano. "Electric Cloud has a long history of supporting and educating the DevOps community through its #c9d9 educational video podcast series and co-founding of the DevOps Enterprise Summit with Gene Kim and IT Revolution."

Building on this education and community focus, Electric Cloud earlier this year launched a unique training and certification program in partnership with The DevOps Institute called "Electric Cloud University" to provide IT and DevOps professionals the skills and confidence they need to help drive digital transformations, and not be run over by them.

In addition, the Electric Cloud is also the founding Platinum Sponsor for the upcoming "2019 Upskilling: Enterprise DevOps Skills Report" to help our community identify and address critical skills gaps across the global IT community. Eveline Oehrlich, former Vice President and Research Director at Forrester, is the lead research analyst for the report.
