Immediate payback with long-term strategic benefits
The Test Environment Management QuickStart Free Trial will get you started with the full capabilities of our powerful solution that addresses the Achilles’ heel of software development: environments that cause delays, produce bugs, and waste time and effort. Environment managers can solve those nagging problems and deliver a clear, short-term payback in gaining efficiency, removing waste, and increasing the flow of value delivered to their customers.
These short-term gains are particularly critical given the uncertain economic backdrop that faces the global markets. A recent IDC study indicated that 48% of CxOs are reprioritizing their technology projects to favor short-term payback over longer-term projects that promise returns in the future. The beauty of the QuickStart family is that you can deliver this immediate ROI while feeling confident that your solution can grow in size and scope to address the transformation of your entire software delivery portfolio – a longer-term effort. Immediate payback with a long-term strategy built in. It’s perfect!
