BERLIN – DevOps platform Garden today announced, recognition, business momentum milestones, and enhancements to its platform, which accelerates the development and testing of cloud applications.

Garden was named a 2022 ‘Cool Vendor in Platform Engineering for Improving Developer Experience’ by Gartner®

The Gartner report, authored by analysts Manjunath Bhat, Arun Chandrasekaran, and Stephen White, estimates that “by 2025, 75% of organizations with platform engineering teams will provide self-service, internal developer platforms to improve the developer experience and accelerate product innovation.”

Tretheway will drive Garden’s go-to-market strategy, product marketing, sales enablement, lead generation, and marketing communications.

“I joined Garden because I saw the immediate value in solving for inefficiencies in the development pipeline,” Tretheway said. “It’s not just incremental gains — customers are radically improving their time to market. I’m excited to bring Garden to companies that value developer happiness and want to accelerate their software pipelines.”
