Serena Release Manager

See how we're different

Market leader Serena Release Manager offers a unique approach to orchestrating release management that maximizes an organization's business agility while optimizing its current investments in processes, technologies, and platforms. With Serena Release Manager helping to create a single, proven path to production, businesses can deploy more applications faster and with greater consistency and auditability.

See below a comparison of Serena Release Manager with other types of release management solutions. Behemoths are big vendors that offer lots of functionality. However, they do this with a "rip and replace" solution consisting of several products and services. As a result, you lose flexibility, and you no longer have control over your environment. Desktop Tools are typically word processing and/or spreadsheet products that were never designed to handle an activity as complex and intricate as application release management. The third solution type, Toolkits, offer some release management capabilities, and they are less expensive than the behemoths' end-to-end solutions. However, Toolkits do not offer comprehensive solutions for release management and leave you lacking complete control over your release management processes.
