"As part of the IBM Cloud marketplace, IBM clients can now easily embrace cloud development to provide structure and visibility to software development projects, as well as improve productivity and reduce costs," said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO of CollabNet.
"The move to more projects being developed in the cloud provides a more efficient and practical path for development teams to code, collaborate and deploy software," Portelli added.
TeamForge is CollabNet's flagship product which provides customers with an open and extensible collaborative software development and delivery platform so as to expand collaboration and application release efficiency across larger, distributed teams. For smaller teams, CollabNet provides CloudForge, a cloud-hosted version of Subversion, Git and TeamForge, that enables fast project starts on-demand.
CollabNet's CloudForge helps developers build websites, mobile/cloud/web applications, and rapidly prototype and deploy business software.
Built for the enterprise, it offers a fast and practical path to grow and scale organization-wide, through a flexible role-based framework that makes it easy for developers to use and administrators to scale to thousands of users. CloudForge provides the development platform IT organizations need to scale cloud development and deploy quality software applications quickly.
This partnership will now allow IBM clients to sign up for a CloudForge account to gain instant access to tools that developers use to manage development projects and deploy code in the cloud.
In another announcement, CollabNet’s CloudForge Development Platform was touted to expand developer opportunities. With cloud-based ALM, developers are able to integrate, coordinate and manage different segments of the software delivery process in a flexible platform, said the company.
