“I’m honored to be part of this program that will enable more collaboration with peers and software teams,” said Rajeswari Koppala, “The complexities of delivering software today are compounded by digital transformation, the need for security and many factors out of our control, but what we can control is leveraging best-in-class technologies and connecting as a community to improve our knowledge as a whole.”

In today’s economy, enterprises need software development teams to operate with speed and agility, but also securely: factors that are often at odds with each other. That’s where Harness comes in with a focused mission to improve the developer experience and enable every one of the 27 million software developers in the world to deliver code more quickly, securely and efficiently. With over 17 million deployments and counting, customer adoption is accelerating on the Harness Software Delivery Platform, while Harness continues to expand its technology to include advanced tools and features.
