I am thrilled to announce Serena has been named a Leader by Forrester Research in its latest Wave ALM Report! This is a great accomplishment, as Forrester is one of the premier technology analyst firms in the world. Serena was recognized for its unique Orchestrated ALM offering, strategy and market presence and, even better, Serena scored a perfect five out of five for our integration and customization capabilities.
Here are some of the key excerpts from the Wave ALM report:
“Serena has made impressive advances at both the individual tool and suite level. Central to its product strategy is ‘orchestration,’ a vision of ALM as an ongoing, rhythmic activity. Not surprisingly, given this vision of a regular flow of activity (conceive, build, test, deploy), Serena has one of the best workflow designers available. Serena’s recent enhancements to its ALM portfolio, such as the Serena Release Manager, provide more support in this end-to-end orchestration model.”
The report went on to say,
“Serena has recognized how important it is for organizations to effectively orchestrate the larger ‘meta-process’ of software development and delivery, which spans the typical activities (coding, testing, building, etc.) that guide the development efforts of other commercial and open source tools. Serena Software tells a very clear story about the challenges orchestrating development and delivery in large IT organizations and how its products help organizations address those challenges.”
The Forrester Wave report was written by analysts Tom Grant, Lyle McNabb and Alissa Anderson, and is a thorough look at the ALM landscape. Analysts perform deep research and analysis into the vendors included in the report and even survey third-party influencers to make sure they are familiar with the technology.
