NRB Chooses Serena Software For Orchestrated Application Lifecycle Management

  • Solutions From Serena Software Enable Outsourcing Services Provider to Automate Software Release Management and Manage Source Code Control Across Multiple Platforms
  • NRB Benefits From Faster and More Efficient Application Development

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Feb 1, 2011 - Serena Software, the leader in orchestrated application delivery, today announced that Network Research Belgium (NRB), one of the top five IT outsourcing companies based in Belgium, has chosen Serena to orchestrate its application development and management processes. Using Serena ChangeMan ZMF, Dimensions CM and SBM, NRB will have a complete application lifecycle management (ALM) suite to improve the efficiency of development across IBM mainframe, Java and Microsoft platforms at the company.

NRB provides outsourced IT services to organizations across the public sector, finance and utility markets, which includes support for large application development and management projects. The company selected solutions from Serena to make its own application development processes easier. By applying an integrated approach and automation to its ALM processes, NRB can accelerate the release of software to its customers.

“We looked across our development processes at NRB to see how we could enhance best practices and streamline our efforts, and what products were available to support these activities. Serena was chosen for its ability to integrate with our existing application development processes, and to streamline release management once development was completed,” commented Manu Khronis, IT-Gov Change Manager at NRB. “Previously, we had to carry release management out manually, which took up valuable time and effort. During the proof of concept with Serena, the developers involved have already seen significant improvements in efficiency. Serena’s vision for orchestrated ALM was the best fit for our own requirements around development and release management.”

“As application requirements increase and delivery timescales decrease, applying process orchestration capabilities enables organizations to keep pace with customer expectations,” said David Hurwitz, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Serena Software. “Serena’s orchestrated application delivery solutions provide the automation support needed for this, from initial demand within the business through development and deployment.”

Serena provides organizations with solutions that support and improve the software development process, ensuring that business requirements for applications are met faster. With its Release Management solution, Serena gives organizations the necessary tools to automate their release planning, control and deployment, as well as integrating this function into the wider ALM process.
