Serena Software Announces New Development Management Solution

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2011) - SHARE 2011

  • New Serena Development Manager Solution Enables IT Organizations to Standardize Disparate Development Processes, Increase Development Efficiency, Lower Operating Costs
  • Solution Allows for Apps to be Developed in a Transparent and Traceable Way, Regardless of Development Methods, Platforms, Tools and Processes

Serena Software, the leader in orchestrated application delivery, IT and business processes, today announced a new release of the Serena Development Manager Solution. Serena Development Manager ensures that any software configuration change gets reviewed, approved and implemented for all impacted distributed environments and mainframe platforms, including Java, .NET, z/OS and z/Linux.

Enterprise IT organizations face seismic shifts in how they can more rapidly respond to customer requests, while still maintaining the integrity and control of software development processes and code. Many organizations continue to struggle with the hybrid usage of agile and waterfall methodologies across global teams and partners. The rapid growth of mobile, tablet, and cloud platforms has led to multiple form factors, programming languages, and architectural considerations. For large enterprises that have to deal with complex regulatory and internal standards, there needs to be an easier way to deliver faster yet stay in control. The Serena Development Manager solution helps global development organizations orchestrate application development across disparate platforms, departmental processes, and development tools, leading to a reduction in operating costs.

Key capabilities of the new Serena Development Manager solution include:

  • Technology-Proof Predictability - the solution helps IT organizations create a unified, flexible and auditable development process that works with all tools, platforms, and processes throughout the entire application development lifecycle. Serena's integration to third-party tools helps IT organizations create an orchestrated development process that delivers enterprise-wide visibility across all your teams, whether they're using Serena products, HP Quality Center or other products.

  • Process-Driven Visibility - Serena Development Management helps accelerate development by removing process bottlenecks, coordinating changes, and providing real-time dashboards and updates across all projects, teams, and tools. The technology provides visibility into both development data and process metrics across all solutions in the application development lifecycle. IT organizations can simultaneously view development data from multiple tools, such as the number of defects in HP Quality Center -- as well as cycle time metrics, such as how long a release has been in the testing phase, the lag time between testing and deployment, and what are the biggest bottlenecks across all projects.

  • Simple Global Efficiency - the solution helps IT organizations streamline globally dispersed development by minimizing the effort for sharing and administering development data. IT can reduce development lag times by enabling teams to quickly share information without being forced to replicate files across servers around the world. Serena also offers "LAN-like" performance for globally distributed teams, so they can spend less time fetching data from remote servers.

The Serena Development Management suite will be generally available in August. For more information, go to:
