Copado Forms Strategic Alliance with Vlocity to Reduce Software Release Time and Deployment Costs for Industry Cloud Apps
Vlocity, Inc., a leading industry cloud software company, and Copado Solutions, a leader in cloud-based enterprise-class change and release management solutions for Salesforce, announced the formation of a strategic alliance and the launch of Vlocity Industry Cloud Continuous Delivery solutions, now available on the Salesforce AppExchange. By bringing together the technical capabilities and shared customer success focus from two of Salesforce’s partners, the integrated solution will optimize release management processes for industry cloud deployments across multiple environments.
As more companies in customer-centric industries move to the cloud and digitally transform their operations with Vlocity, it’s become essential for CIOs and IT departments to ensure a succinct and timely delivery of industry cloud apps. This partnership between two Salesforce partners will help companies in the communications and media, insurance and financial services, health insurance, energy and utilities, and the public sector industries better manage their cloud implementations. By combining Copado’s expertise and best practices in the area of release management with Vlocity’s industry-specific functionality, the two companies enable IT departments to quickly capture more benefits from their digital and cloud transformations.
“Vlocity and Copado are valuable contributors in the Salesforce ecosystem, and we are delighted that these two companies are working closely together to drive mutual customers’ success in our focus industries,” said Neeracha Taychakhoonavudh, SVP, Industries at Salesforce.
“By teaming up with Copado to offer industry-specific continuous delivery software, we’re able to accelerate cloud deployments and further enhance the agile functionality of our applications. We’re always striving to provide industry-best value to our customers, and this new alliance with Copado ensures that future deployments will be rapidly executed, verifiably integrated and easily visible to change approvers, developers and project partners,” said Rip Gerber, Chief Marketing & Alliance Officer, Vlocity.
Widely recognized for its cloud and mobile applications that embed digital, omnichannel processes for customer-centric industries, Vlocity selected Copado for its Salesforce expertise, ability to deliver cleaner and quicker deployments, and demonstrated success in overcoming the challenges of metadata-driven environments.
“Copado will allow Vlocity to better monitor and perform tests for potential bugs and conflicts, and provide internal users with precise version control and visibility of changes via Git. Essentially, Vlocity Industry Cloud Continuous Delivery ensures that the deliverables for any cloud implementation project meet stakeholder expectations, from initial development to production,” said J.J. Jakubik, Chief Architect, Vlocity.
“As large-scale digital implementations become more complex and increasingly involve additional partners and multiple features, it’s important that businesses not only have a release management strategy but automated release management software that ensures seamless integration and efficiency. With this new partnership, we can now extend our next-generation cloud-based release management solution to the industry-specific applications that Vlocity deploys, opening up a rich new world for both companies to explore and collectively building on the advancements that the Salesforce Platform provides,” said Federico Larsen, Co-Founder, CTO, Copado Solutions.
Vlocity Industry Cloud Continuous Delivery is a complete release management solution, including agile project management, continuous delivery, version control, automated deployments, automated regression testing, rollbacks and scheduled metadata back-ups. In conjunction with the launch of Vlocity Industry Cloud Continuous Delivery, Copado is offering their award-winning enterprise-class release management solution at no extra charge to all Vlocity customers for a limited time to demonstrate the benefits of its new industry-specific approach.
