<p>According to Gartner, Software Change and Configuration Management (SCCM) helps structure development change, configuration and release processes. SCCM products address many of the problems that encumber development teams in their processes, and in their interactions with operations and project management.</p>
<p>In its report, Gartner evaluated Serena Dimensions CM, an end-to-end, process-centric solution that manages and automates the full application lifecycle with visibility and traceability from inception to deployment. Dimensions CM integrates requirements management with change and configuration management based on a single repository, which is key to delivering business-changing software.</p>
<p>“We believe Gartner's report shows that Serena continues to lead the market by providing a single, integrated SCCM solution for application lifecycle management,” said Rene Bonvanie, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, information technology, and Serena On Demand at Serena Software. “Serena empowers development teams to synchronize and automate all phases of the software change and configuration management process—-from requirements, through modeling, development, build, and testing, to deployment-—across global sites, teams, platforms, and methodologies. Unlike yesterday's tools designed for small, local teams, Serena’s solution is designed for today's globally-distributed development teams.”</p>
<p>Enterprise software development organizations following industry best practice normally define their software processes first and then deploy lifecycle tools that manifest and enforce that process. Serena's SCCM solutions are designed to be flexible enough to address nearly any development process methodology, whether a traditional waterfall-style methodology or a more leading-edge Agile framework, and to simply and easily change as the organization's methodology matures.</p>
