In its mission to provide a global net-centric enterprise in support of DOD operations, the US Defense Systems Information Agency needed to reduce applications development costs associated with their defense systems from billions to millions of dollars. CollabNet supported DISA by helping the agency rapidly implement Forge.mil, a highly secure, collaborative development environment based on CollabNet's TeamForge solution.

While adopting agile development practices, agencies in the federal government must implement plan-driven approaches that keep in compliance with congressional and contractual oversight. Budgetary pressures are forcing development organizations in the governments world-wide to find new ways to save money and improve productivity.
Unmanaged hybrid cloud and development practices can degrade productivity. Traditional tools are non-collaborative and loosely integrated, introducing security risks. This raises the cost of development projects, while reducing the velocity of the teams.
CollabNet solutions automate Agile and mixed development techniques, and enable collaboration to be adopted rapidly throughout the complex government development structure. CollabNet TeamForge has passed the most stringent of DOD penetration tests and is being deployed on both public as well as multiple secret class networks.
