REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Mar 6, 2012 - Serena Software, the Orchestrated IT leader, today announced its ranking as “Champion” in Info-Tech Research Group’s 2012 Agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Vendor Landscape Report. For more than 30 years, Serena’s ALM products, now with native support for Agile processes and artifacts, have helped thousands of customers worldwide dramatically improve their overall application development process and significantly speed project release completion times.

The Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in certain technology marketplaces. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category, in this case Agile ALM.

Serena earned the Champion honor for its high scores amassed during the evaluation period with Info-Tech researchers and for its excellence in terms of perceived value to customers. Info-Tech also praised Serena for its strong market presence and named it a trend-setter for the Agile ALM industry. Serena delivers a comprehensive, feature-rich solution set for Agile ALM, and was the only vendor out of the eight included in the report to earn “Feature Fully Present” across all 11 evaluated features.

Serena orchestrates IT for enterprise organizations across the end-to-end application delivery lifecycle. IT organizations can coordinate disparate processes, multiple tools and globally distributed teams from initial business request all the way to final production release. Serena helps IT engage more rapidly and accurately with the business, accelerate globally distributed water-scrum-fall development and deliver applications more frequently into production – all while maintaining enterprise visibility and compliance to corporate and regulatory standards.
