CollabNet Recognized as a Leader in 2012 Magic Quadrant for Application Lifecycle Management

Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

BRISBANE, Calif., June 27, 2012 — CollabNet® (www.collab.net), a global leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Agile ALM products and services, today announced it has been included in the “Leaders” quadrant in Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)” report (Thomas E. Murphy and Jim Duggan, June 5, 2012). A total of 16 providers were evaluated in the report with five being named a leader.

Gartner states that due to the maturity of the cloud and Agile technologies, the ALM market is evolving and expanding. The research firm believes “the ALM market, estimated at $1.5 billion for 2011, and will continue to grow at a compound annual rate of about 3.9 percent. Portions of the market will remain stronger than others. Of the products in this Magic Quadrant, much of the growth is in the Agile planning category.”

“CollabNet is proud to be named by Gartner in the leaders quadrant for our completeness of vision and ability to execute in the ALM market,” said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO for CollabNet. “We are in complete agreement with Gartner that ‘the ability to build applications that use cloud technologies and tools that leverage the cloud are critical to improving operational efficiency’ and innovation. We see enterprise cloud development as a growing movement to help companies adopt development and deployment strategies using hybrid technologies and cloud services. Towards that end, we have recently launched CloudForge™, the industry’s first enterprise-grade development-Platform-as-a-Service (dPaaS).”

CollabNet's Agile ALM solution, TeamForge®, is one of the most complete and open platforms for building and deploying mission-critical 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 public cloud dPaaS. TeamForge simplifies and manages the growing complexity of rapidly increasing iterations, global distributed teams, the hybrid use of processes, tools and clouds and the need to increase collaboration throughout the entire ALM lifecycle – plan, code, track, build and test, lab management, release and report.

“CollabNet is actively extending its cloud solution based on the acquisition of Codesion. This acquisition which enabled the public cloud hosting of a rich array of open source and commercial developer and deployment tools, complemented the company’s position in SCCM, where it already had a rich history in the collaborative development and support for developers in the Subversion®, GIT, Eclipse, Hudson, Jenkins Visual Studio and Quality Center communities. A key capability of CollabNet is the orchestration of this rich array of development capabilities leveraging its platforms’ ability to integrate with a wide variety of tools.”

Product Availability:
TeamForge is available in both CollabNet’s public CloudForge offering and in single and multi-tenant cloud. In addition, the solution is offered on-premise. For more information please visit: (http://www.collab.net/products/teamforge).
