September 21, 2017

CA Technologies has been named a Leader in the prestigious “The Forrester Wave: Continuous Delivery and Release Automation, Q3 2017” report by Forrester Research.

The report evaluates 15 of the most significant continuous delivery and release automation vendors.

Vendors were evaluated on 26 criteria on their ability to support major DevOps processes for continuous delivery and release automation, including: integration with CI tools, package creation and modeling, pipeline modeling and governance, API coverage, vulnerability rectification and out-of-the-box integrations.

Ayman Sayed, President and Chief Product Officer, CA Technologies, said: “We believe this achievement testifies to CA Technologies success in empowering enterprises with the speed and agility they need to achieve continuous delivery and adopt digital transformation as an important strategic initiative.”

Per the report, Forrester states, “Automating the movement and deployment of infrastructure, middleware, and applications through testing is a key pain point for I&O teams today. CDRA [Continuous Delivery and Release Automation] tools remove errors from manual deployment and release processes by standardizing and automating the movement of applications between environments; this is a critical step in the delivery pipeline of applications and has a direct impact on customer experience.”

According to the report, “CA Continuous Delivery Director and CA Automic Release Automation demonstrated good pipeline management across all pipeline stages, movement of complete releases including applications, infrastructure and middleware, remediation of vulnerabilities, defect tracking, and out-of-the-box integrations with a broad range of third party solutions including configuration management, database management tools and testing tools.”2

CA Continuous Delivery Director and CA Automic Release Automation received the highest scores possible in the deployment flexibility, deployment scenario support, advanced model creation and deployment, pipeline health and orchestration, scalable governance, planned enhancements, consulting, training and support, and innovation in delivery models and pricing criteria.

CA Automic Release Automation is the most flexible, yet scalable release automation product on the market. It is also environment agnostic, making CA Technologies uniquely positioned to help transform any enterprise for the digital age.
