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.

The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
