DevOps Leaders. We’ve done it before. Then we did it again.

Team Orca has built powerful IT Automation tools before. We saw painful build and release processes that just didn’t work. So we started Build Forge (now part of IBM) to accelerate software delivery. Later we saw highly complex, error-prone application release processes. So we started Varalogix (now part of BMC) to take the risk and uncertainty out of web application deployment. Now we’ve turned our sights onto the time consuming, money wasting, overly complex configuration processes that many have just taken for granted for too long. We are excited about helping organizations achieve unified application release and configuration automation – because IT teams deserve better…and Barry deserves better.
