Collabnet Sees Enterprise Cloud Development as the Next Wave in Agile ALM, Devops Initiatives in 2012

As Agile and DevOps movements mature so too does cloud development

BRISBANE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — CollabNet® (, the global leader for cloud development and Agile ALM products and services, expects the adoption of cloud development practices to increase in 2012 as a growing number of IT organizations build and deploy software directly in the cloud. During 2011, CollabNet saw a 40 percent increase in cloud development projects developed, deployed and hosted on its private and public cloud offerings, with more than 1,500 new customers adopting its Codesion™ cloud development platform over the past 12 months.


"The software development industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and we see the convergence of Agile ALM, Continuous Delivery and hybrid cloud strategies making enterprise-wide cloud development practices increasingly attractive to IT organizations," said Bill Portelli, CEO and co-founder of CollabNet. "In this context, 'enterprise' applies to the compliance, traceability and security standards that software-driven organizations require from the cloud to increase productivity, global collaboration and the pace of releasing quality software ."


From an industry perspective, CollabNet cites the following factors that are leading to enterprise cloud development as the next wave in software development: 1) maturing cloud development platforms that provide enterprise-grade security and regulatory compliance, 2) the ability to integrate commercial and open source ALM tools in the cloud, 3) the increase in Continuous Delivery in the cloud, and 4) the mainstream adoption of hybrid computing strategies that blend public and private cloud platforms based on application type and usage requirements.


CollabNet is well-suited to gauge the increased adoption of cloud development practices. The company maintains six world-class data centers that provide up to 99.99 percent average availability and stringent security controls for more than 1.5 petabytes of annual data traffic and 3.5 billion Subversion transactions per year. It maintains a highly trained operations team for managing large enterprise ALM sites, managing more than 10 terabytes of data annually and 1.6 million Subversion transactions per day for more than 25,000 users. It hosts approximately 800,000 documents and 350,000 artifacts for more than 5,000 projects using 7,000 trackers.


"We see enterprise cloud development as a growing movement in the software development industry and the result of two megatrends in IT – cloud computing and Agile ALM," said Guy Marion, vice president of cloud services for CollabNet. "Just as Agile processes are scaling across IT organizations, cloud development is moving from smaller projects to more strategic implementations that larger IT organizations are using to adopt and scale software development and deployment directly in the cloud."


CollabNet enables hybrid cloud development strategies with a portfolio of products and services that provide the performance, security and traceability today's maturing Agile-based environments require. CollabNet's cloud platforms meet enterprise needs and empowers thousands of developers to streamline the development and deployment process using a growing ecosystem of hosted open source and commercial tools, including Apache Subversion®, Git, Trac, Bugzilla, CollabNet's Agile ALM platform TeamForge®, and other leading Agile project management tools.
