This addition will expand cPrime’s ability to deliver patented BlueKit best practices library for SAFe transformations and help customers implement Software Services Lifecycle Management (SSLM)

FOSTER CITY, CA (PRWEB) AUGUST 28, 2017

cPrime, the largest Agile, Atlassian and DevOps consulting company in the United States, today announced that it has acquired Blue Agility, a leading Agile and DevOps consulting and training firm, based in Bristol, Pennsylvania. Since 2011, Blue Agility has helped organizations implement large-scale agile transformations, DevOps automation and application lifecycle management (ALM) technology. With “BlueKit”, a proprietary library of best practices, templates and workshops, companies are able to drive consistency and accelerate rollout of SAFe transformations of all sizes. The acquisition will deepen cPrime’s Agile consulting and training practice and help software development teams better incorporate Software Services Lifecycle Management (SSLM) into their process to create accelerated flow of value delivery to customers and greater responsiveness to business needs.

“Blue Agility is recognized as one of the best companies at delivering SAFe transformations. Bringing them into the cPrime family positions us to better provide and support global SAFe transformations. Built from actual implementations, their BlueKit has proven to be extremely useful in successfully implementing SAFe transformations through industry-specific best practices, and we look forward to incorporating it into our delivery of SAFe transformations,” said Zubin Irani, CEO of cPrime.

Launched in 2016, SSLM is a new approach designed to address the fragmented way software and services are used to support Agile, DevOps and ALM initiatives. It aligns teams, processes, and tools used to build applications through a unified approach to software services that removes the cultural barriers that result in siloed operations and disconnected software delivery workflows. SSLM promotes an integrated and comprehensive approach that supports the software goals of an organization. As Agile and DevOps reach further into the enterprise, SSLM establishes the need for tool and process convergence, and building a unified, integrated strategy.

“Teaming up with cPrime accelerates our ability to grow the reach of our Scaled Agile Expertise, proprietary BlueKit Implementation methodology and deliver holistic solutions to our existing client base,” said Ken France, CEO of Blue Agility.
