Making the Case for Open Source over ClearCase: Total Cost of Ownership and other Considerations

While waving such red flags may dissuade uninformed consumers, the fact is that in today’s enterprise software market, open-source software (OSS) is everywhere, from Linux, Eclipse, Android and Apache to Subversion and Git. Many programming languages are open source as well — Python, Ruby and Perl.

Effective SCM Strategy for the Modern Enterprise

Today’s organizations need to consider many factors when defining a Software Configuration Management (SCM) strategy for modern world-class enterprise software development teams. Over the past several years, organizations have been affected by new market forces that were hard to foresee a decade ago when the current SCM landscape was forming: decentralized development teams, increased use of short-term and remote workforce, greater concerns over intellectual property protection, growing complexity and costs of compliance audits, and increased demand for managing risks. The combination of these seemingly unrelated forces have created unique technology and business challenges for enterprise development organizations.

Top 5 Anti-patterns in the Continuous Delivery (CD) Practice

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a design practice used in software engineering to automate and improve the process of software delivery. It extends agile development and Continuous Integration (CI) techniques to create high quality software that is ready to package and deploy out to the test environments. CD results in the ability to rapidly, reliably, and repeatedly push out enhancements and bug fixes to customers at low risk and with minimal manual overhead.

Why Does Your Enterprise Need a Git Strategy?

Git is the world’s leading distributed version control system (DVCS). Developers praise Git for its flexibility, local access speed, and powerful branching and merging capabilities. Git has already become a mainstream technology for individual developers, open source projects, as well as small companies. Large and geographically distributed enterprises also increasingly believe that Git represents an opportunity for speeding up the development process. Even when enterprise organizations are happy with their legacy source control solutions (such as Subversion), it is hard to avoid the presence of Git in development environments. Also, the use of open source libraries often makes it inevitable for the enterprise to at least become familiar with Git.
