As I am writing this post, CloudBees reached a milestone in the number of employees. I think the milestone hit many of us by surprise. “Really,” we thought. “So soon?” But if you look back over the past couple of quarters, it’s pretty apparent that our internal growth was inevitable.
The number of Jenkins deployments is rapidly rising. At last measure, there are more than 100,000 active installations of Jenkins running. And, as enterprise companies deploy more and more Jenkins, the need for enterprise-grade solutions are accelerating at a very similar rate. A recent blogby CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey discusses how organizations are transforming their use of Jenkins as a Continuous Integration (CI) tool to using it as a platform to bring enterprise-wide Continuous Delivery (CD). And as our customers have matured their deployments, so have the solutions and offerings from CloudBees, including the most recent launch of CloudBees Jenkins Platform.
The fact is… we are growing. And as we grow, our partners - resellers, services providers, training partners and technology partners - will all play an increasingly critical role delivering the enterprise-scale Jenkins solutions and complimentary tools and platforms our joint customers are seeking.
Which is why we are committed to equipping our partners with the skills, resources and tools to help you get the most from the opportunity that Jenkins offers. Next month, CloudBees will announce new developments in our Partner Program to meet the needs of our growing partner ecosystem and to help all maximize the vast opportunities Jenkins presents. All current or potential partners - including global resellers, service providers and training partners - are invited to attend our informational webinar on July 16 at 11 am ET. This presentation will provide an overview of the latest product developments and expanded opportunities available to partners to help grow your business through enterprise-scale Jenkins solutions.
We look forward to sharing these exciting developments with you next month and working with you to uncover new opportunities, deliver the latest in Jenkins innovations and solutions to our joint customers, and expand your business.
