XebiaLabs Continues Expansion of Partner Program With Black Diamond 
Black Diamond Software Now Offers the Deployit Application Release
Automation Solution 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/13 --  XebiaLabs, the leading
provider of Enterprise Continuous Delivery Automation
(www.xebialabs.com), today announced a partnership with Black Diamond
Software, a software development and software business process
transformation firm based in Ridgefield, Connecticut (www.bds.com).  
With Deployit, Black Diamond can now offer software development
solutions at lower costs while reducing deployment errors. 
"Many of our customers are experiencing excessive risk, time and cost
in software delivery especially the application deployment process,"
said Black Diamond CTO Rich Duncan. "With Deployit, we can help
customers manage and rollout applications more efficiently and on
time. Deployit allows us to achieve this by eliminating the typically
manual and error-prone nature of deployments and help our customers
free up DevOps and Operations resources and reduce time-to-market for
new features." 
Deployit also helps software delivery organizations like Black
Diamond reduce downtime, lower operational costs, and accelerate
time-to-market while delivering scalable deployment processes. With
these capabilities, Black Diamond can strengthen its portfolio in
Continuous Delivery solutions. 
Black Diamond will also sell other XebiaLabs solutions directly to
customers, serving as a new sales channel for XebiaLabs' Enterprise
Continuous Delivery Automation. 
As Gartner recently noted in its Application Release Automation
Landscape Research note, the speed and agility of application
releases are growing exponentially. DevOps, operations and
development teams are seeking tools to help automate the application
deployment process. Black Diamond identified this customer pain point
and chose XebiaLabs' Deployit, the market leading application release
automation, to help solve this challenge. 
"Adding Black Diamond to our partner network represents a key
strategic decision for XebiaLabs," said Coert Baart, CEO of
XebiaLabs. "More customers will now benefit from our technology, and
our application release automation and Continuous Delivery platform
will play a key role for Black Diam
ond customers that require
sophisticated enterprise, Web and mobile apps."  
XebiaLabs will be exhibiting this week at JBoss World at the Red Hat
Summit in Boston. To learn more about the partnership and see a
