CollabNet helps organizations connect tools, processes and teams to deliver high-quality software quickly and efficiently

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – May 17, 2016CollabNet®, a global leader in enterprise software development and delivery solutions that help customers create high-quality applications at speed, today announced Flint Brenton, CEO, will outline strategies that led to the company’s recent growth and success at the Needham Emerging Technology Conference in New York City on May 18. CollabNet has seen steady growth since being acquired in 2014 by Vector Capital, and market potential increases as more modern enterprises turn to platforms like TeamForge to boost organizational productivity and development efficiency.

“Enterprises are striving to create quality software at speed, which is challenging in dynamic heterogeneous and cloud environments, relying on diverse tools, and geographically dispersed teams.  Inefficiencies revealed by that complexity are driving the need for enterprise-class DevOps solutions that can maintain contextual visibility and traceability across tool chains, and support governance and compliance requirements,” said Flint Brenton, CEO at CollabNet. “This sets the stage for TeamForge, which uniquely connects the people, tools, technologies, and methodologies across the software development lifecycle.  I look forward to sharing our roadmap to success at the Needham conference.”

CollabNet is the winner of a 2016 Best of Interop Award, recognizing TeamForge for its innovation.  The company has also been recognized as an SD Times 100 industry leader for a record 12 consecutive years. CollabNet has been instrumental in advancing modern software delivery through both technical innovation and industry leadership. The TeamForge platform helps thousands of global enterprises and government agencies improve software delivery by facilitating shorter cycle times, lowering costs and streamlining compliance. It enables enterprise Agile and DevOps – giving enterprises control over practices, tools and intellectual property (IP) to transform software development and delivery into a transparent, secure and cost-effective process.

The Needham Emerging Technology Conference, May 18 - 19, 2016, will highlight companies in the Consumer, Internet & Digital Media and Software & Services verticals that Needham & Company believes are most likely to win in today’s rapidly changing competitive environment, as well as those most likely to redefine the investment landscape.
