"Following months of meticulous research, we identified Serena as the best application deployment solution on the market. We realized that existing infrastructure automation solutions, such as Altiris, can do a good job when you need to provision new servers, but when it comes to application releases and deployments, it's a different story. We look forward to leveraging Serena's Release Automation solution as our unified deployments solution and ensuring the highest level of security and reliability," said Brian Goldberg, Director of Infrastructure and Deployment Strategy at Ultimate Software.
