XebiaLabs Opens London Office to Drive Market Expansion

Appoints Deborah Shakespeare as Director of UK Sales

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 -- Celebrating a year of record growth and looking to further expand into new markets, XebiaLabs announced plans to open a London office to recruit new customers to its application release automation platform. Organizations such as John Deere, the Met Office, and Société Générale, turn to XebiaLabs to accelerate the time-to-market of their software applications with optimum reliability.

XebiaLabs also announced a former Oracle Senior Director, Deborah Shakespeare, as Director of UK Sales.

"We're very fortunate to have experienced record growth in customer wins and now we wish to better service the demand flow from the UK and Irish markets," said Coert Baart, CEO, XebiaLabs. London is a huge financial services center and we are already helping many large banks realize major ROI in the amount of time they save getting high-quality applications out to production."

Staffing the UK office will be newly appointed Deborah Shakespeare, who brings 20 years of technical sales and business development background including eight years moving up the ranks in various leadership roles at Oracle. Before Oracle she held sales executive positions involving direct and channel relations with Borland Software, Popkin Software, Bradmark Technologies, Dataease, and Bytech. Before joining XebiaLabs, she was EMEA Director of Sales Strategy for Corso Ltd.

The UK's largest provider of forecasting data, the Met Office, has weathered nicely with XebiaLabs. Prior to working with the vendor, application release preparations at the Met Office were handled manually; each step would be subjected to time-consuming checks to ensure proper execution. The Met Office can now support continuous delivery of services to millions of customers while reducing the risk of errors and number of resources required to get applications out to users.

Alan Morbey, Configuration Management Team Leader at the Met Office, said, "We have seen very encouraging results, with deployment times being substantially reduced."

Most recently, XebiaLabs rolled out XL Platform, a suite of applications comprising XL Deploy, for application release automation, XL Release, for enterprise release management for DevOps and Continuous Delivery, XL Test, the first dedicated Agile test management and analysis tool and XL Scale, for on-demand provisioning and scaling of full environments.

Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar.
