Electric Cloud Goes Back to School with Free Enterprise-Grade Automation Solution for Educational Institutions
ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition free for non-profit educational institutions
Sunnyvale, CA — August 11, 2011 Electric Cloud®, the smart development cloud company, today announced that ElectricCommander® Workgroup Edition will be available free of charge to non-profit educational institutions from Aug. 11 through Sept. 30, 2011.
ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition (ECWE) provides smaller teams and workgroups with the enterprise-class features and flexibility of ElectricCommander, allowing smaller organizations to automate and accelerate the application development (build-test-deploy) process on physical, virtual or cloud resources. The automation provided by ElectricCommander frees developers from maintaining homegrown, script-based systems, or adjusting their processes to fit open-source tools. Non-profit educational institutions that contact Electric Cloud by Sept. 30 will receive a free six-month license for ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition.
"For non-profit organizations, every penny counts, and we want to give development teams at colleges, universities and other non-profit educational institutions access to the same time- and money-saving automation that enterprises enjoy with ElectricCommander," said Electric Cloud CEO Mike Maciag. "The automation and management provided by ElectricCommander mean faster, more efficient development for schools and universities, whether they're using physical, virtual or cloud resources, or any combination of the three."
ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition employs the same underlying infrastructure as the ElectricCommander enterprise product but is designed to support processes and workloads of smaller organizations. ECWE has the flexibility to adapt and grow over time as business needs dictate. As teams and projects grow, ECWE can be easily transitioned to the enterprise version, so there is no need to make painful infrastructure and process changes down the road.
ElectricCommander is an enterprise-class solution enabling a smart development cloud by automating all the repetitive tasks that occur in the application lifecycle, such as building, testing, packaging and deployment. Completely process- and tool-agnostic, ElectricCommander scales to concurrently support all of the software development projects within an organization, regardless of physical location or automation need. It also provides comprehensive workflow orchestration and management and reporting capabilities.
Non-profit educational institutions that wish to take advantage of this offer can email firstname.lastname@example.org and mention "back to school."
