Updates include providing a single central console for release management
St Albans, UK – 24th May 2011 – Serena Software, a leader in orchestrated application development, IT and business processes, today announced the availability of Serena Dimensions CM 12, the newest and most powerful version of its software change and configuration management (SCCM) solution. Dimensions CM 12 supports improved processes around release management through a convenient single console for viewing, scheduling, and executing release deployments and rollbacks.
New features and capabilities in version 12 include:
- New Deployment View with a centralised console for release managers to view, execute and schedule deployments and rollbacks
- Provides a gold repository for all release-ready code, which is critical for IT organisations that have multiple development tools in use across various development teams
- Greater granularity and flexibility in managing promotions and deployments, demotions and rollbacks, simplifying role-based security and separations of concerns
- Enhanced capabilities for customers to promote and deploy releases at a later date, enabling alignment with resource availability
“Over the years Dimensions CM has earned a reputation for being one of the fastest integrated application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions on the market and has helped thousands of customers increase development efficiencies, lower development costs and risks, and ensure compliance to standards. Customer success around releasing applications into the business is not just about speed alone, but about being able to provide a straightforward and secure path to production,” commented Jeff Westenhaver, Product Marketing Manager, Mainframe and Release Management at Serena Software. “Dimensions CM 12 makes it easier for release managers to see across the entire process and orchestrate it successfully, even when multiple teams are involved.”
Dimensions CM supports organisations in establishing a repeatable, reliable release management process that saves them time and money. It integrates with many popular application lifecycle tools straight out of the box, including integrated development environments (IDEs) like .NET and Eclipse, defect tracking, build, test management tools, and help desks.
