CollabNet's TeamForge Helps Growing Number of European IT Organizations Achieve Agile and DevOps Success

Strong adoption of DevOps practices leads to continued growth for CollabNet

BRISBANE, Calif., September 19, 2013CollabNet, the leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Federated ALM, today announced that the rising adoption of DevOps practices within Europe, along with a strong uptake in Agile development by financial services, manufacturing and embedded systems customers, has led to strong growth for the company within the EMEA region during the past 12 months. Year-to-date, CollabNet has achieved more than 25 percent revenue growth throughout the region, and expects the year-end to close 30 percent ahead of last year, with more than 15 major new enterprise accounts added.

“While Agile development adoption has been steady throughout Europe, the rise in DevOps has been very strong for both traditional software organizations and the emerging embedded systems market,” said Dominique Wurzler, vice president and general manager EMEA for CollabNet. “The EMEA region is very proactive in leading the successful adoption of DevOps practices, and our TeamForge ALM platform combines the openness and flexibility teams need with enterprise compliance required to scale these initiatives very successfully.”

CollabNet has a long history of serving IT customers and contributing to the software industry throughout the EMEA region. It has offices in London, Amsterdam, Munich, Berlin/Potsdam and, most recently, Frankfurt. Its growing customer base includes clients in banking/ insurance, manufacturing, telecom and the semiconductor industry.  Because of the fragmented nature of the European market, CollabNet TeamForge® provides the open and social development platform to manage multinational software development, embrace the adoption of best-of-breed open-source and commercial tools, and support communities of external partners. Organizations in EMEA also are taking a “bigger view of ALM” to include DevOps and Continuous Delivery, and embracing change (mobile and cloud) as a means of driving customer value and improving software delivery outcomes. CollabNet also sees large manufacturers, from automotive to semiconductors, adopting Agile to gain competitive advantage through speed-to-market and additional functionality provided through software.

“Together with our customers and partners we are making great progress driving value from Agile and DevOps, as well as adoption of Git with enterprise-grade visibility and compliance,” said Wurzler. “CollabNet is committed to continued success in the region for our customers, partners, employees and the industry at large.”
