By orchestrating their application development lifecycle with Serena,IT organizations can efficiently capture all demand from their stakeholders, easily manage changes to requirements and softwareconfigurations, and repeatedly deploy releases with confidence. Serena has helped thousands of IT organizations make dramaticimprovements to their application development, including greater visibility, faster time to market, higher stakeholder satisfaction,and lower development costs. 1

Orchestrated Development Management Serena Development Management helps global development organizations orchestrate application development across disparate platforms, departmental processes, and development tools. With Serena Development Management, Global 500 organizations can create a standardized development process, increase development efficiency, and lower operating costs.

  • 4. SOLUTION BRIEF Technology-Proof Predictability Serena Development Management helps IT organizations create a unified, flexible, and auditable development process that works with all tools, platforms, and processes throughout the entire application development lifecycle. Serena’s integration to third-party tools helps IT organizations create an orchestrated development process that delivers enterprise-wide visibility across all your teams, whether they’re using Serena products, Subversion, Microsoft Team Foundation Server, or other products.Managing the lifecycle in For enterprises that have complex production environments, only Serena helps ITDimensions CM ensures us good organizations manage software configurations for mainframe, distributed, cloud,audit results… thereby allowing us and mobile environments – with just a single UI. Coordinated process support acrossto sleep peacefully at night. multiple languages and methodologies, including .NET, Java, Agile, and waterfall also ensures everyone stays in sync and reliably delivers applications on time.IT Professional ............................................................................................................Global 500 Professional Services company ............................................................................................................ Figure 1: Review development information across multiple tools, platforms, and languages, including HP Quality Center, Eclipse, mainframe environments, Java and .NET. No global development organization has just one development process. So Serena provides enough flexibility for divisions, regions, or partners to have their own “localized” process that seamlessly plugs into an overall development process. Serena also helps eliminate compliance headaches through real-time, automated audit trails across all phases and tools in the development lifecycle, so development teams can spend more time coding and less time gathering compliance data. Stakeholders and teams can use Serena to see the latest development information from request to release and ensure everyone stays on track. 3
  • 5. SOLUTION BRIEF Process-Driven Visibility Serena Development Management helps accelerate development by removing process bottlenecks, coordinating changes, and providing real-time dashboards and updates across all projects, teams, and tools. While many solutions offer reports for development data managed in their system, only Serena provides visibility into both development data and process metrics across all solutions in the application development lifecycle. For example, IT organizations can use Serena dashboards toWe have decreased the amount simultaneously view development data from multiple tools, such as the number ofof manual work it takes to defects in HP Quality Center or commit statistics in Subversion. Because developmentcreate a release and deploy data isn’t enough to improve the development process, Serena also provides processit to testing by 90%. metrics for each phase and handoff in the application development lifecycle. IT executives can see cycle time metrics, such as how long a release has been in the testing phase, the lag time between testing and deployment, and what are theIT Manager Global 500 High-Tech Electronics company biggest bottlenecks across all projects. Serena’s process-based metrics, dashboards, and reports help IT organizations identify process trends so they can deliver applications faster. ............................................................................................................ ............................................................................................................ Figure 2: Process-based metrics helps teams understand project issues and bottlenecks across agile and waterfall projects. With Serena, IT executives can make development more lean by streamlining the flow of changes and development updates across disparate teams, tools, platforms, and development processes. A unified and orchestrated change management process across applications, releases, and teams helps ensure all the right people review relevant changes and easily identify which projects are impacted by changes. While real-time dashboards and alerts offer real-time visibility into any development updates, Serena’s open architecture allows development teams to even use their own tools to see when information from other systems has been changed. 4
  • 6. SOLUTION BRIEFSimpler Global EfficiencySerena Development Management helps IT organizations streamline globallydispersed development by minimizing the effort for sharing and administeringdevelopment data. With Serena, IT can reduce development lag times by enablingteams to quickly share information without being forced to replicate files acrossservers around the world. Serena also offers “LAN-like” performance for globallydistributed teams, so they can spend less time fetching data from remote servers.Serena also lowers the administrative costs for managing global teams by eliminatingthe need for multiple servers that are typically associated with other developmentsolutions. Also, a single global repository allows developers to search for reusablecode across all global teams, so they can rapidly develop new applications. Forglobal organizations that increasingly rely on outsourcers for more upstream designand development, Serena provides a secure and granular repository for managingoutsourced development. Logical separation of code based on role makes it easier tolimit outsourcers’ privileges, and partial baselining minimizes any errors or risks whenincorporating outsourced code.SummarySerena offers organizations an innovative way to both accelerate their applicationdevelopment, while staying in control with the most complex standards. Customershave been relying on Serena Development Management to create an orchestrateddevelopment process, gain insight into development data and process metrics, andsupport globally distributed teams – no matter how many tools or platforms areinvolved. With Serena, IT executives can realize dramatic results – faster development,headache-free compliance, and happier customers. 5
