XebiaLabs Continues Expansion of Partner Program With Black Diamond

Black Diamond Software Now Offers the Deployit Application Release Automation Solution

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2013) - XebiaLabs, the leading provider of Enterprise Continuous Delivery Automation (www.xebialabs.com), today announced a partnership with Black Diamond Software, a software development and software business process transformation firm based in Ridgefield, Connecticut (www.bds.com).

With Deployit, Black Diamond can now offer software development solutions at lower costs while reducing deployment errors.

"Many of our customers are experiencing excessive risk, time and cost in software delivery especially the application deployment process," said Black Diamond CTO Rich Duncan. "With Deployit, we can help customers manage and rollout applications more efficiently and on time. Deployit allows us to achieve this by eliminating the typically manual and error-prone nature of deployments and help our customers free up DevOps and Operations resources and reduce time-to-market for new features."

Deployit also helps software delivery organizations like Black Diamond reduce downtime, lower operational costs, and accelerate time-to-market while delivering scalable deployment processes. With these capabilities, Black Diamond can strengthen its portfolio in Continuous Delivery solutions.

Black Diamond will also sell other XebiaLabs solutions directly to customers, serving as a new sales channel for XebiaLabs' Enterprise Continuous Delivery Automation.

As Gartner recently noted in its Application Release Automation Landscape Research note, the speed and agility of application releases are growing exponentially. DevOps, operations and development teams are seeking tools to help automate the application deployment process. Black Diamond identified this customer pain point and chose XebiaLabs' Deployit, the market leading application release automation, to help solve this challenge.

"Adding Black Diamond to our partner network represents a key strategic decision for XebiaLabs," said Coert Baart, CEO of XebiaLabs. "More customers will now benefit from our technology, and our application release automation and Continuous Delivery platform will play a key role for Black Diamond customers that require sophisticated enterprise, Web and mobile apps."

XebiaLabs will be exhibiting this week at JBoss World at the Red Hat Summit in Boston. To learn more about the partnership and see a demonstration of XebiaLabs' solutions, please visit booth #1006.
