Bitnami named Top 3 Vendor in Application Deployment and Management for DevOps by EMA

Authored by Tom McCafferty, VP of Marketing

The new Enterprise Management Associates report “Ten Priorities for Container Management and DevOps in 2018” was just released and Bitnami is proud to be chosen as a Top 3 vendor for Application Deployment and Management. The report analyzes survey data from 300 enterprise Devops teams to break down industry trends and highlights key products to “recognize a vendor’s excellent alignment with customer challenges.”

Let’s be honest...who doesn’t like a little recognition? At Bitnami we’ve been innovating very rapidly over the past year and it’s nice to be recognized for the work that we are doing. This report highlights three of our key products initiatives that are expanding our product portfolio beyond our core application catalog business. As Bitnami continues to grow, we’re squarely focused on adding value to customers in two ways…

1. Simplifying the journey to the cloud by automating application migration (see Stacksmith)

2. Driving the next generation of application packaging standards and usage around containers and Kubernetes (see Kubeapps) and FaaS (see Kubeless).

While these represent an obvious extension to our company focus on application packaging and management, it’s great to see that they align so nicely with the 10 priorities that the EMA report identified for container management and Devops in the enterprise…

I’ve been a fan of Enterprise Management Associates and Torsten’s no-nonsense approach to the analyst game for a long time. Briefing him on the work we’re doing related to application packaging, cloud migration and Kubernetes was exactly as expected…conversational, technically deep and ultimately very enjoyable. Seeing that much of our product focus aligned with exactly the feedback he had been getting from the 300 enterprises surveyed for the recent Top 3 report was great validation from a resource I know I can trust and I expect that many enterprises can look to for guidance on 2018 strategies.
