CA Technologies has been positioned by Gartner in the Leaders quadrant of its inaugural “Magic Quadrant for Application Release Automation”.
The report evaluated CA Release Automation, which provides advanced capabilities to help organizations manage a complex and maturing continuous delivery pipeline.
Gartner assessed vendors that offer application release automation (ARA) tools that provide a combination of automation, environment modelling and release coordination capabilities to simultaneously improve the quality and velocity of application releases. According to the Gartner report: “These tools are a key part of enabling the DevOps goal of achieving continuous delivery with large numbers of rapid, small releases.”
The 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. All leaders offer the high degree of flexibility, scalability and support critical to enterprise-level ARA investment success.”
“End-to-end automation of the software code pipeline is a requirement for agile organizations focused on quickly bringing innovations to market,” says Jaco Greyling, CA Southern Africa, manager: DevOps solutions.  “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 organisations to deliver new applications to market quicker, with higher quality, and at a lower cost.”
