It was great talking to Scott Rose, VP of Product Management at CollabNet about their new version of TeamForge, the application lifecycle management (ALM), and Enterprise Version Control platform for collaborative software development. This latest TeamForge release offers versatile source code and version control improvements, greater customization and flexibility for developers, support for enterprise-grade high availability, easier installation, and a SAML 2.0 integration allowing for Single Sign-On (SSO).
“ At Collabnet, we are an end-user of TeamForge and deploy a new version internally after every 3 week sprint and commercially release a new major version every 3 months,” said Scott. “TeamForge gives developers more customization options, allowing for greater flexibility in how the platform simplifies processes and connects people, teams, and tools. CollabNet works to ensure that customers can create competitive, quality software with enterprise-grade reliability that supports higher levels of availability.”
Together, ALM, Enterprise Version Control, and Agile tools allow organizations to achieve DevOps at an enterprise scale. TeamForge connects the enterprise by providing a collaborative, integrated environment for a variety of enterprise development efforts. Organizations can use TeamForge to increase efficiency greatly through the re-use of resources and the extensive visibility and traceability throughout the software development lifecycle.
