Serena Software releases ARM

On July 7, Serena Software announced their latest release, the Serena ARM, or Application Release Manager. EWeek talks about it here. This tool takes mashups to the mainframe for businesses.

This new tool will provide:

an automated way for application developers, IT operations and business users to communicate and collaborate with each other during the release process so that applications can be released on schedule

Rene Bonvaine, Senior Vice President of worldwide marketing, partner programs and services, had this to say about the new release:

This [ARM] relates a lot more to our roots, but it combines very nicely with a lot of things we’ve been talking about with mashups. This is part of the continued mainframe drive toward Web 2.0, and we see a lot of application development happening for the mainframe. We have quite a number of mainframe customers, and we continue to add them to our stable.
