HCL Accelerate allows you to measure your DevOps effectiveness, identify
bottlenecks, prioritize work, define trends, and reduce risks to
help your teams drive transformation and make better decisions.

The business side of the house can use the insights gained from Accelerate
to set smarter budgets and more meaningful strategies. Development
professionals can use Accelerate to better manage teams and forecast
What makes HCL Accelerate different than any other value stream management
HCL Accelerate can integrate with all the tools in your existing DevOps
toolchain – no need to stay within the same product family. Plus,
Accelerate focuses on the metrics that matter most for producing
actionable results as opposed to vanity metrics with little meaning.
Accelerate is a homegrown tool that was developed because of our
own need for better pipeline views.
Do I have to use other HCL Software DevOps products to use HCL Accelerate?
Nope! HCL Accelerate is an over-the-top view of all your data and all
your toolchains, no matter what tools you’re using. Of course, Accelerate
works great with the HCL Software DevOps solution suite, but it works
just as well with other toolsets.
What is better suited for my team – the always free HCL Accelerate
Community Edition or the Standard Edition?
HCL Accelerate is powered off the data it collects and the relationships
it builds, so if you want to maximize the value of Accelerate, you
need to maximize the users. Community Edition has all the same features
as Standard Edition, but is best for small teams since it is limited
to two concurrent users (these user licenses are not assigned to
a specific person and can be shared between team members). However,
Community Edition cannot scale across teams. If you have more than
two teams, it’s best to use Standard Edition to get the benefit of
Accelerate across teams. You can upgrade an individual instance of
Community Edition to Standard Edition, but you cannot combine instances
of Community Edition into one Standard Edition.
Can I add more users to HCL Accelerate Community Edition later?
Community Edition is always limited to two concurrent users, but you
can upgrade to Standard Edition to get unlimited users.
What happens at the end of my 60-day free trial with Standard Edition?
Once your 60-day free trial of Standard Edition expires, your instance
of HCL Accelerate will become a Community Edition license with two
concurrent users. You’ll still be able to access all your data. If
you’d like to continue using Standard Edition at the end of your
