Blue Turtle Technologies today announced the availability of two new software releases for the South African IT market. Developed by Serena Software, Dimensions CM 12.1 and PVCS Version Manager 8.4.2 are designed to help South African IT organisations develop and deliver releases more efficiently.

Tommy Erlank, General Manager – Enterprise Application Management (EAM) at Blue Turtle, comments: “Our clients have experienced years of tremendous value from their Dimensions CM and PVCS Version Manager deployments. With the new updates in Dimensions CM 12.1 and PVCS Version Manager 8.4.2, IT organisations can expect to further streamline their application development and delivery processes.”

Dimensions CM is an industry-leading software change and configuration management (SCCM) solution, which forms part of the Serena Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Solution, that helps enterprise IT organisations seamlessly orchestrate application change and configuration practices across disparate platforms, environments, and teams.
