CollabNet Named A Leader In Application Life Cycle Management Report By Independent Research Firm


BRISBANE, Calif., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CollabNet® (, a global leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Agile ALM products and services, today announced it was among the select companies that Cambridge, MA-based Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its October, 2012 report: "The Forrester Wave™ Application Life Cycle Management, Q4 2012". In its evaluation, Forrester ranked CollabNet in its Leader category, which is Forrester's highest designation within the report.

"One of the strengths of CollabNet's ALM suite is the flexibility with which users can define ALM content. [CollabNet's] flexibility will pay off when trying to effectively address the needs of complex teams or complex projects, where there is less change for a one-size-fits-all design," the Forrester report stated. It adds, "Not only are CollabNet's tools available in the cloud (CloudForge), but they also include features optimized for developing, testing and deploying cloud systems."

Other highlights contained in the report include:

  • "While there are many commercial and open source point solutions for particular activities, the title "ALM vendor" goes to companies that do more than provide a single capability however good it might be."
  • "Not only are CollabNet's tools available in the cloud (CloudForge), but they also include features optimized for developing, testing and deploying cloud systems."
  • "ALM is going through a period of redefinition and innovation. Hot ALM issues such as DevOps, embedded software and requirements definition show how the concept of ALM has expanded and changed."

"Our overall company strategy and direction is clear – we are committed to providing our global client base with the tools and services they need to build and deploy software that drives organizational excellence," said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO of CollabNet. "We believe Forrester's assessment of CollabNet's ALM solutions underscores our leadership position in the ALM market and the important role we are playing in bringing cloud development to the enterprise."

CollabNet's TeamForge® is the industry's most complete and open platform for building and deploying vital applications by distributed teams. Using TeamForge, enterprise IT organizations can leverage a mix of technology processes, commercial and open source tools, and deployment applications through both on-premise deployments or as an offering within its CloudForge™ enterprise cloud platform. TeamForge simplifies and manages the growing complexity of rapidly increasing iterations, global distributed teams, the hybrid use of processes, tools and clouds, and supports the need to increase collaboration throughout the entire ALM lifecycle – plan, code, track, build and test, lab management, release and report.

In addition, with the growing popularity of Git, CollabNet provides the industry's first enterprise-grade Git offering within both the TeamForge and CloudForge platforms, and the only integrated offering of Subversion and Git. CollabNet continues to make Git a viable choice for enterprise IT organizations where the highest standards in support, security, availability and back-up are a "must" requirement.
