Industry Leaders CollabNet and UC4 Software Partner to Bring First Enterprise-Grade DevOps Platform to Market

Joint solution helps enterprise IT organisations manage and automate all aspects of DevOps to improve collaboration, agility and software time-to-market

London, UK, Nov 6, 2012, CollabNet® (www.collab.net), the global leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Agile ALM, and UC4 Software (www.uc4.com), the leader in IT Process Automation, have entered into a strategic partnership to help IT organisations achieve enterprise DevOps at scale. The companies will jointly develop, market, sell and support a comprehensive end-to-end DevOps platform. The joint offering provides the automation, scalability and governance enterprises need to bring development and IT Operations closer together to deliver software faster and reduce IT costs.

For CollabNet, the key component of this combined solution embeds UC4's Application Release Automation functionality within CollabNet's TeamForge Agile ALM platform, introducing a new deployment automation offering called "CollabNet Deploy with UC4" to its customers and prospects. This new product offering provides the bridge between the industry's leading Agile ALM platform from CollabNet and the industry's leading IT automation platform from UC4. For UC4, the addition of TeamForge to the UC4 IT automation platform offers a complete, end-to-end development through IT operations solution for its customers and prospects. These combined solutions comprise an Enterprise DevOps platform that will automate the entire development-through-deployment process across a range of on-premise and external clouds - including code, build, test, release, deployment and IT automation - to achieve continuous, reliable application releases at scale.

"This partnership supports our mutual goals of driving agility and collaboration across the entire IT organisation as we now offer a single, common platform that manages all aspects of emerging DevOps and Continuous Delivery initiatives," said Jason Liu, CEO for UC4. "Software is the lifeblood of market competitiveness and organisational success, and our joint DevOps platform is a solution our customers want as they move to automate the entire application code, build, release and deployment lifecycle. CollabNet enables Agile and governed enterprise-wide deployment like no other solution on the market - they were a natural selection to be our partner for this transformational industry opportunity."

As DevOps and Continuous Delivery gain traction and adoption increases, IT organisations need strong governance, cross-team coordination and traceability to succeed and scale these initiatives across the enterprise. CollabNet Deploy with UC4 includes the core technology of UC4 embedded within TeamForge to form a unified platform that provides complete cross-function data and workflow automation, integrated reporting, lifecycle traceability and the ability to gain real-time visibility across roles, projects, departments and geographies. Through a single-pane-of-glass interface, IT organisations can now automate and streamline the entire application development, build and deployment lifecycle to improve software agility, productivity and team collaboration.

"We are thrilled to see the powerful characteristics that make TeamForge the leading choice for managing large-scale development programs extend deeper into IT operations," said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO for CollabNet. "DevOps is following a similar adoption and maturity model as Agile development and cloud computing did a few years ago. Combined with UC4, we are bringing to market a platform that significantly evolves modern software development and deployment."

CollabNet's TeamForge ALM platform transforms enterprise application development through its unique community architecture approach to Agile ALM. It is used by hundreds of enterprises to simplify and manage the growing complexity of faster release cycles, global distributed teams, and the hybrid use of processes, tools and clouds. UC4's Application Release Automation platform automates and orchestrates all activities involved in application deployment and operations, allowing for different environments, owners and processes to work in unison.

CollabNet Deploy with UC4 helps improve:

  • Productivity and Agility: Transforms cumbersome and manual application deployments of build, test, staging and production software/hardware images into fully governed, Lean and efficient automated processes that now take minutes instead of hours or days.

  • Compliance and Governance: Automates end-to-end tracking of all deployment-related changes and delivers detailed reporting on deployment status, change activity and the segregation of duties for strategic planning and efficient execution.

  • Efficiency and Cost Savings: Greatly reduces the risk of capital and brand-damaging losses by eliminating deployment-related outages, as well as saves on resources needed to configure, deploy and fix defects.

UC4 and CollabNet will demonstrate the new CollabNet Deploy with UC4 solution at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2012 in Barcelona, Spain. To learn more or request a demo please visit www.collab.net/deploy.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
