That will require higher levels of visibility, integration and governance across the entire software delivery lifecycle,” said Brenton. “Our customers told us that this past year. We listened to them and learned about the real-world challenges they face today and about where they want to go. Our customer- oriented approach and innovation, together with our growing base of exceptional technical and business talent, supported our strong growth.”
