Black Duck Software, Blueprint Software Systems, and OpenMake Software Join CollabNet Partner Network

New Partners Bring Open Source Compliance, Refined Requirements Management, and Build Automation to collabXchange

BRISBANE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/23/10 -- CollabNet®, the leader in Agile application lifecycle management (Agile ALM), announced today that three leading companies have joined CollabNet's collabXchange™, an online marketplace for openCollabNet® members that offers added-value integrations and extensions to CollabNet TeamForge™ and Subversion. The new partners are Black Duck Software, a leading provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software; Blueprint Software Systems, the market leader in requirements definition solutions; and OpenMake Software, the leader in build and release management solutions and services. openCollabNet members can download CollabNet open source integrations and discover partner solutions at www.collab.net/collabXchange. Free openCollabNet memberships are available at www.collab.net/community.

"CollabNet TeamForge and CollabNet Subversion are ideal solutions for software development teams working in any development environment, with any development methodology, especially teams using Agile methods, teams leveraging open source, and distributed development teams," said Jim Ensell, vice president, business development, CollabNet. "The CollabNet platform has always been open to a wide variety of integrations and extensions. The solutions offered by our partners on the collabXchange add greater flexibility to the CollabNet platform and allow our customers to leverage their IT investments even further."

The three new partners are leveraging either Subversion, the industry standard for software version control and software configuration management (SCM), or CollabNet Subversion, an enterprise-ready distribution of Subversion that includes certified binaries, platform-specific installers, certified plug-ins for other tools, and enterprise-ready add-ons, to bring unique capabilities to the collabXchange:

  • Black Duck Software is the leading provider of products and services for automating the management, compliance, and secure use of open source software in multi-source development at enterprise scale. Black Duck Code Sight seamlessly indexes code in CollabNet Subversion repositories so it can be rapidly searched from within popular Web browsers and integrated development environments (IDEs). Search results are structured for maximum ease-of-use when navigating through source code and projects. It provides views into code at the project and file level, with language-aware features that improve code reliability and ease navigation.
  • Blueprint Software Systems leverages Subversion to power its Blueprint Team Repository, which provides reliable version control for requirements definition teams, whether they are co-located or distributed globally. Blueprint Team Repository enables authors and stakeholders to securely manage multiple versions of requirements, compare versions for change, create and manage baselines, and ensure the ability to fall back to any previous version.
  • OpenMake Meister, an Agile build management and continuous integration solution, uses the CollabNet Subversion repository to offer a transparent audit trail, exposing all Subversion-managed source code used to create binaries in addition to accelerating builds for a more streamlined Continuous Integration process. Together with CollabNet Subversion, Meister provides a distributed, enterprise-class build-to-deploy process that enables traceability from source code to release. OpenMake Software also offers Mojo, a free workflow automation and continuous integration solution that integrates with the CollabNet framework.

"We're always looking for new ways to enable our customers to better manage their use of open source software," said Phil Odence, vice president, business development, Black Duck Software. "By partnering with CollabNet, we now can offer our customers a ready integration with Subversion, the industry-leading open source SCM product, to better automate their use of open source software in multi-source development."

"Blueprint and CollabNet have a common focus on collaboration among distributed teams," said David Brehmer, vice president, alliance and services, Blueprint Software Systems. "The Subversion integration in Blueprint Team Repository will extend Subversion's industry-leading software configuration management solution to include state-of-the-art requirements definition and management."

"Our partnership with CollabNet enables us to offer our customers accelerated builds and an enterprise-level audit trail," said Tracy Ragan, co-founder and chief operating officer, OpenMake. "The combination of CollabNet Subversion and OpenMake Meister creates an ideal solution for improving distributed Agile software development, from check-in through build and release."

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
