“We’re very pleased that both CollabNet and Subversion have been named to the SD Times 100 once again,” said Bill Portelli, chief executive officer, CollabNet. “As a leader in developing Cloud-based solutions in the Agile ALM space, it’s gratifying to be recognized this year for our contributions to Agile and collaborative development methods. Look for CollabNet to deliver more innovative solutions for Subversion and Agile collaborative development throughout 2010.”

The SD Times announcement builds on a recent string of significant leadership milestones:

  • CollabNet released CollabNet TeamForge 5.3, which is ideal for organizations seeking to adopt Agile in an incremental fashion while continuing to manage other projects using their choice of software development processes.
  • CollabNet acquired Danube, the worldwide leader in Scrum project management solutions, positioning CollabNet as a leader in the emerging Agile ALM space.
  • CollabNet provided the software development platform for the U.S. Department of Defense’s award-winning initiative, which has set a new gold standard for the Cloud-based development of federal government IT projects.
  • CollabNet forged a partnership with other open source vendors to form Open Source for America, an organization that serves as a unified voice for the promotion of open source in the U.S. federal government sector.
  • CollabNet has received accolades from across the industry. As examples, the World Economic Forum named CollabNet a 2010 Technology Pioneer, and CollabNet also received a Federal 100 Award and a Great Indian Developer Award. In addition, CollabNet was recognized in Q2, 2010 by a leading industry analyst firm as the strategic thought leader for Agile ALM in the Cloud.

The Subversion community most recently released Subversion 1.6, which includes new features such as the ability to detect tree conflicts, improved management credentials, and reduced repository space requirements. Subversion recently became an Apache Top-Level Project and will benefit from the Apache Software Foundation’s widely emulated meritocratic process, stewardship, outreach, support, and community events. CollabNet and other open source community members are continuing to drive Subversion innovation, including the addition of several new features relating to merge handling and overall performance, in the upcoming Subversion 1.7.
