BOSTON, MA - August 3, 2016 - XebiaLabs, a recognized leader in DevOps and Continuous Delivery software tools, today announced it has been placed in the “Leaders” quadrant by Gartner Inc. in the analyst firm’s first ever “Magic Quadrant for Application Release Automation.”

According to the Magic Quadrant report, “Enterprise I&O leaders looking to expand on hard-won agility gains from DevOps and other automation initiatives find that application release automation solutions provide the right mix of task automation, environment modeling and coordination capabilities.”

The Magic Quadrant reports further states the strategic planning assumption, “By 2020, 50% of global enterprises will have implemented at least one application release automation solution, up from less than 10% today.”

“We believe that being placed in the leaders’ quadrant is a clear recognition of our product innovation and focus on the needs of enterprise IT teams,” said Derek Langone, CEO, XebiaLabs. “I feel it is a testament to the tremendous value our global enterprise customers have been able to create in a short period of time, as they use XebiaLabs to power the software delivery of mission-critical applications from flying satellites to space to managing transactions worth billions of dollars.”

And it provides the functional depth enterprises need while being commended for its ease of use for technical and non-technical team members. This results in a time-to-value that’s second to none.”
