Quali Named by EMA as DevOps 2020 “Top 3” Winner

Quali CloudShell Awarded in Dev/Test Environment Creation Category

SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 14, 2018 -- Quali, the leader in cloud sandbox software for DevOps automation, has been selected by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) as an “EMA Top Three” vendor in the category for Dev/Test Environment Creation in its DevOps 2020 Top 3 and Innovator Award Announcement White Paper Report.

According to the EMA report, a total of 85 products were evaluated across eight DevOps market segments with sufficiently demanding criteria from 419 enterprises with 2,500 employees or more.

Quali CloudShell delivers on-demand, self-service IT environments for cloud and DevOps deployments with in-built automation and orchestration capabilities. This allows Dev/Test teams, IT innovators and a variety of other organizations to get access to standardized environments in minutes as opposed to weeks at a fraction of the cost, thereby increasing productivity, efficiency and reducing time to market while also reducing risk.

“Despite the wide variation in DevOps tool adoption and maturity of DevOps initiatives across enterprises, most enterprises have a DevOps strategy and tactical plans that are intended to improve efficiency, quality and competitive advantage,” Stephen D. Hendrick, Research Director at EMA wrote in the report. “Understanding current tool use by enterprises, their needs over the next several years and the extent to which vendors are aligned and positioned to support these needs, are the keys to market success. Authentic Dev/Test environment creation is a critical part of the DevOps lifecycle and Quali’s offering is highly differentiated in this regard”

In 2017, Quali was named by EMA as 2017 “Top 3” Winner in the DevOps Security, Compliance and Cost Control category.

“This 2018 award recognition is reflective of the maturity of the DevOps market. Environment complexity is a tough barrier that hits organizations as they begin to hit as they begin to automate and scale their Dev/Test operations. Solving this in the right manner can yield tremendous speed and efficiency gains for enterprises that invest in such solutions while reducing risk,” said Shashi Kiran, CMO at Quali. “CloudShell has been increasingly adopted by larger enterprises that are looking to increase agility and productivity of Dev/Test teams while bringing operational efficiencies.”
