Today's enterprise IT organizations are intimately familiar with the pain of change. Under pressure to do more with less while accelerating velocity and responsiveness, IT is finding software systems harder than ever to provision and maintain. Similarly, most IT organizations lack consistent and repeatable processes for the handoff between phases in the release lifecycle. This leads to system configuration “drift” between dev, test, staging and production phases, which often leads to failed deployments and outages.

Conformity Inc., provider of the first enterprise-class management and governance solution for SaaS and cloud applications, today announced a strategic alliance with Ping Identity, the leader in Internet Identity Security, which will give joint customers comprehensive visibility and control of user access and usage of SaaS and cloud-based applications.
