CollabNet Continues to Support Enterprise Git Adoption with New 24/7 Technical Support Services Package

CollabNet responds to strong demand for enterprise-grade support of Git

BRISBANE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 — CollabNet® (, a global leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Agile ALM, today announced its continued support for the Git source code management (SCM) tool within enterprise IT organizations with a new 24/7 support services package. The new Git service complements CollabNet’s existing support for the Subversion open source SCM tool, and coupled with its TeamForge ALM and CloudForge platforms, provides the industry with both the technical support and standards-based compliance that are required within an enterprise IT organization.

“CollabNet has extensive experience helping IT organizations gain value from open source SCM tools through our technical support of Subversion, and now we are offering the same world-class support for Git,” said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO of CollabNet. “CollabNet’s support of both Git and Subversion, side-by-side, increases choice for development teams and makes Git a first-class citizen within an ALM tool stack that includes a heterogeneous mix of commercial and open source tools.”

CollabNet is the industry leader for global SCM support and success, delivering services to more than 200,000 developers using Subversion®, CVS, Perforce and, now, Git. The new Git support is offered through the CollabNet Technical Resource Center that provides 24/7 support, guaranteed SLAs and response times, and practical best practices through both a stand-alone service for an individual tool or through a hybrid Subversion/Git package. The service is offered in Silver, Gold and Platinum packages that include a range of email, phone and chat support options. Git support pricing starts at $333-per-month and more information can be found at: (

“Git is very hot right now, with a 100 percent growth in adoption year-over-year for the last three years,” said Richard Murray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Engineering, Operations, and Support for CollabNet. “Our customer feedback and inquiries illustrate that Git clearly needs to be readied for the enterprise, and CollabNet is fully committed to provide a secure path for IT organizations through both services and technical integrations with TeamForge and CloudForge.”

CollabNet has extensive experience bringing the value of open source innovation to the enterprise. In 2000, it created the Apache Subversion open source version control system that today is used by more than 5 million developers around the globe. Its Subversion Edge product includes a complete certified stack of Apache, Subversion and ViewVC, making it a favorite of enterprise IT organizations. With the growing popularity of Git, CollabNet continues to innovate, offering the industry’s first enterprise-grade Git offering within its TeamForge and CloudForge platforms, and the only integrated offering of Subversion and Git. CollabNet will continue, through the addition of technical leaders to make Git a viable choice for enterprise IT organizations where the highest standards in support, security, availability and back-up are a “must” requirement.
