Plutora Earns Top Three Vendor for Release Management in EMA DevOps 2020 Research


Garnering an overall score of 95, which indicates excellence across
product penetration, feature effectiveness and satisfaction, Plutora
joined IBM and Microsoft to round out the top three

a leading provider of continuous delivery management for enterprise IT,
today announced that it has been recognized as one of the top three
vendors in the DevOps release management market based on the results of
the Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) DevOps 2020 survey.

The aim of the DevOps 2020 survey was to establish an understanding
around the current state of DevOps, recognize buying behaviors over the
next two years, reveal DevOps maturity and strategy, and provide
analyst-guided competitive vendor analysis.

Plutora was evaluated on nine criteria to establish its place in the top
three. The criteria included segment penetration, product design,
architecture and scalability, ease of integration, interoperability and
deployment, cost, support, services and reputation, and overall product
satisfaction. The Plutora Continuous Delivery Management Platform's
overall score was 95, which is indicative of an exceptional product that
has consistently high component scores, including:

  • A product penetration score of 95, indicating Plutora's effectiveness
    at delivering its message into the market
  • A feature score of 90, which reflects solid scores across the seven
    product capability categories
  • An overall satisfaction score of 84, enabling Plutora to work with
    customers to identify key areas to evolve the product

The survey looked at 20 DevOps markets, with a deep dive into eight of
them in an effort to understand the primary solutions being used, the
effectiveness of each and the customer satisfaction. DevOps release
management was one of the eight markets EMA explored in depth. The
overall results revealed that while continuous integration, continuous
delivery and application release automation are tactical focus points,
release management is the second-highest growth market across all
segments in the DevOps pipeline.

"We have reached a point where the majority of enterprises have embraced
agile techniques, but many are still struggling to put together a
mature, comprehensive DevOps solution to drive results," said Stephen
Hendrick, research director for application development and management,
EMA. "Based on the feedback we received from over 400 respondents,
vendors such as Plutora are providing many organizations with a single
source of truth for their DevOps projects. Additionally, for a vendor
that is significantly smaller than its companions in the top three, the
high scores that Plutora received on feature effectiveness and customer
satisfaction demonstrate that it is a leader in the enterprise release
management market."

"In individual conversations with customers we continue to hear stories
about how Plutora enables them to ensure their development strategy
aligns with the overall goals of the business, but receiving the same
feedback about our platform from those surveyed by EMA really reinforces
this sentiment," said Bob Davis, CMO, Plutora. "As businesses continue
to push through digital transformation journeys and strive to become
software-driven companies, Plutora is proving to be a key component. It
can improve speed and quality, provide coordination and visibility, and
gather metrics at every step of the release process to communicate ROI
and guide improvement through unique measurements."
