Releasing Tomorrow's Software, Today: Electric Cloud


To win in today’s market, organizations are making big bets on DevOps as one of their key strategies to drive agility and innovation. However, development teams’ agile pace of software delivery and new technology adoption has outstripped the ability of operations teams to keep up. This cadence and skills mismatch limits innovation, jeopardizes transformation, and puts teams in a constant state of release anxiety. Electric cloud was born to help such organizations evaluate and easily adopt new technologies, monitor and track pipelines and releases, ensure security and compliance at speed, eliminate release anxiety, and on-board teams with self-service pipelines.

Electric Cloud’s Adaptive Release Orchestration platform helps organizations like E*TRADE, HPE, Intel, and Lockheed Martin confidently release new applications and adapt to change at any speed demanded by the business, with the analytics and insight to measure, track, and improve their results.
