Leading global company Ultimate Software significantly reduced its deployment times and IT operational costs by adopting Serena's Release Automation solution, powered by Nolio.
Ultimate Software is a leading provider of unified human capital management (HCM) Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for global businesses.
The company's award-winning UltiPro® delivers comprehensive HR, payroll, and talent management for organizations of all sizes to manage the global workforce from recruitment through to retirement.
Ultimate Software was founded in 1990 and currently employs more than 1,200 workers. The company has approximately 2,200 customers representing diverse industries.
As a leading provider of unified human capital management (HCM) SaaS solutions for thousands of global businesses, Ultimate Software needed to ensure its application changes were consistently deployed accurately and on-time.
With thousands of servers and multiple deployments running daily from pre-production to production, it was also vital for Ultimate Software to find a comprehensive solution that ensured rapid and efficient application changes across multiple environments.
Ultimate Software previously deployed its applications with Symantec Altiris.
Although Symantec Altiris offered Ultimate Software a good service in terms of provisioning applications, the company found its processes lacking when it came to application deployment and maintenance. In order to find the best possible solution for its business needs, the company conducted a thorough and robust evaluation of today's key application deployment providers. This research led the business to conclude that Serena Release Automation, powered by Nolio, offers the best application-centric automation platform on the market today
By commissioning Nolio's partner Serena, Ultimate Software was able to implement Nolio's innovative Zero Touch Deployment™ process. This has enabled the company to rapidly deploy application releases without the need for manual intervention.
Ultimate Software is now able to release applications more frequently as operations staff can work at the same pace as agile development teams. Release times have dramatically decreased, enabling Ultimate Software to start generating revenue more quickly and giving the company a valuable competitive edge. By adopting a fully automated and transparent deployment process, Ultimate Software has also eliminated manual errors and ensured IT governance and compliance.
We are looking forward to leveraging this Release Automation solution as our unified deployments solution and ensuring the very highest level of security and reliability.”
