“Releasing
applications into production environments is a critical part
of application development. Working with Serena makes coordinating
release processes very straightforward and helps us ensure all
stakeholders are notified on upcoming changes.


Instead
of relying on manual processes, we have implemented a
repeatable, reliable procedure that is not only saving everyone
headaches, it also reduces
cost.”
