CollabNet TeamForge Wins The Code Project's 2011 Members Choice Award for ALM

Agile Development Solution Recognized for Innovation and Quality by Leading Software Development Community

BRISBANE, Calif., July 28, 2011 — CollabNet®, the leader in Agile development in the Cloud, announced today that the CollabNet TeamForge® ALM platform, the leading ALM solution for distributed teams, has won The Code Project’s Members Choice award in the ALM category. The Code Project is one of the largest development communities in the world, comprised of professional developers, development managers, and architects. Since its inception in 1999, The Code Project has become an industry-leading community, gathering more than 7.7 million registered members.

CodeProject.com members, who were asked to rate their favorite development tools based on "in-the-field" experience, chose the winners. The Code Project editors then compiled the highest-rated listings and awarded the highest-ranked product in each category.

"Establishing and fostering a collaborative culture among developers is the foundation for creating innovative software today," said Bill Portelli, chief executive officer, CollabNet. "For over a decade, CollabNet has partnered with the industry to deliver innovative software development tools that leverage Agile, social development, and Cloud computing–from individual workgroups through large-scale Agile enterprises. The ALM Award for TeamForge reflects both our market leadership and the partnership we strive to form with our users."

CollabNet TeamForge is the leading enterprise platform for application lifecycle management (ALM), supporting every development process (Agile, waterfall, and hybrid) and every technology stack. Customers can manage the entire software delivery process, taking ideas from concept to release. TeamForge provides integrated capabilities for requirements analysis, Agile planning, software version control, and issue tracking, and users can initiate elastic cloud server provisioning, build and test, and release packaging. TeamForge also automates governance by validating, capturing, and connecting information throughout the delivery process—both within a project as well as with other teams and projects across the collaborating enterprise. Code fragments, commits, conversations, and documents are continuously correlated, building a traceable and searchable data foundation for issue resolution, planning, and code reuse.

TeamForge has gained the trust of more than 400,000 developers and product teams worldwide. The world's largest and most successful software development communities, in enterprises and in shared and open source communities such as the Department of Defense’s forge.mil, Intuit’s www.code.intuit.com, and tigris.org, rely on TeamForge to deliver better software faster.
