BRISBANE, Calif., March 1, 2011 — CollabNet®, the leader in Agile development in the Cloud, announced today the general availability of CollabNet TeamForge Project™, an integrated suite of Web-based development and collaboration tools for Agile software development. The general availability release follows a four-month beta test by more than 100 organizations. TeamForge Project is a component of CollabNet’s Codesion™ Professional Edition product, a secure, instant-on developer cloud that enables developers to instantly provision Subversion, Git, and other code repositories, as well as bug tracking, Agile management, and full application lifecycle management capabilities. CollabNet also announced today that more than 200 customers have chosen Codesion Professional Edition since the product’s January 2010 general availability release.
“We sought out a scalable and extremely reliable hosted source code management platform that provided easy team collaboration and management of our distributed development projects,” said Todd McKinnon, chief executive officer, Okta, a cloud application management services company. “We found our solution in Codesion, not only for its stellar reputation in the market, but also due to its support for both Subversion and Git.”
