CloudBees, Inc., the enterprise software delivery company, announced it was named a Leader in The Forrester Wave: Continuous Delivery and Release Automation, Q2 2020, by Forrester Research Inc. In the report, Forrester evaluated companies in the following categories: Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence.

Additionally, thanks to its marketplace and large list of out-of-the-box integrations, the platform is easily extensible. Functionally, customers noted superior pipeline visibility and ease of pipeline management.”
CloudBees CDRA capabilities are suited for both cloud native organizations and automation across large legacy environments, providing customers with easy extensibility and flexibility.

“We believe being named a Leader in Forrester’s report and achieving the highest score (tied) in the CDRA vision and value proposition criterion underscores CloudBees’ commitment and vision to market-leading innovation,” said senior vice president and general manager, Software Delivery Automation (SDA) Group, CloudBees. “CloudBees CD provides control and visibility into complex enterprise pipelines and releases – across any combination of monolithic, mainframe and microservice-based applications. We acquired Electric Cloud to add these powerful CD capabilities and to be able to support complex release orchestration use cases. Our focus remains on offering powerful, integrated applications and capabilities that provide an SDA backbone for enterprise developers. We know in the enterprise, developers and ops value freedom to choose the DevOps tools that help them attain flow and focus. Having a fundamentally sound SDA backbone that plugs into that DevOps toolchain instead of replacing it is critical.”
