Perforce Signs ReleaseTEAM as Its First U.S. Sales Partner

ReleaseTEAM Enlists Perforce's Enterprise Version Management and Collaboration Solutions to Help Organizations Optimize Software Development Lifecycles

ALAMEDA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Perforce Software today announced its partnership with DevOps and Software Configuration Management (SCM) consulting company ReleaseTEAM. With more companies focused on developing higher-quality software faster, version management and collaboration solutions have become a key competitive advantage. This partnership will add new tools to ReleaseTEAM's portfolio of commercial SCM solutions and open more U.S. sales channels for Perforce.

Research shows that a majority of software organizations across industries are moving to Continuous Delivery practices. The automated systems that are central to Continuous Delivery increase the need for having a highly scalable version management system in place -- one that can support large file sizes, increased transaction volumes and multi-site teams. It also requires a best-of-breed approach that can create an additional need for the expertise offered by leading consultants like ReleaseTEAM.

"We've noticed the advances Perforce has made in SCM over the years and watched the company become the versioning engine behind some of the most innovative companies in the world," said Shawn Doyle, CEO of ReleaseTEAM. "As consultants, we're trusted to stay on top of industry trends and offer our customers the best technology available for their needs. Bringing Perforce into our portfolio has helped deepen our expertise in Continuous Delivery, which our customers are asking about more than ever before."

ReleaseTEAM is the leading DevOps and SCM consulting firm in the United States. The company employs a wide range of specialized engineers and tools administrators with in depth knowledge and competitive insights on all aspects of software lifecycle management.

"With their stellar reputation as trusted advisors to federal agencies and others looking to migrate from legacy systems to solutions better suited to their current and future needs, we couldn't think of a better partner to work with than ReleaseTEAM," said Christopher Seiwald, CEO of Perforce. "Our industry has seen a lot of change recently and we're looking forward to working with ReleaseTEAM to help organizations take advantage of new practices like Continuous Delivery."

ReleaseTEAM has joined Perforce's global network of sales partners across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and India, which serves customers in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at De...

Simply put, IT needs to figure out how to accelerate the application depl...
There's fog coming to the world of IT. Some people are calling this "The Cloud." This fog turns everything inside out. It will take your monolithic applications, the guts of which are contained within large bodies of code, and break them apart so that discrete units of functionality are contained within their own process, exposed through an interface for others to see. Complexity is moving from the inside of a few large processes to the outside of many smaller processes. People are rightly sca...
