Automation Consultants has formed a new partnership with JFrog Ltd., the Liquid Software company and creators of the JFrog DevOps Platform, to help customers across EMEA accelerate and secure their software development processes using JFrog's suite of DevOps products.

This partnership arrives as DevOps adoption across Europe continues to grow rapidly.
