SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CollabNet® (www.collab.net), a provider of cloud-based Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solutions for agile software delivery at scale, today announced Ameritas® selected its TeamForge® ALM platform to consolidate, manage and host all of its source code management (SCM) using Apache Subversion®.

Previously, Ameritas used multiple source code management tools, ultimately choosing TeamForge as its cloud-based single platform to promote collaboration and efficiency among developers. Plus, the platform complies with security and governance standards required by the insurance and financial services industry.

"With TeamForge, Ameritas can quickly consolidate multiple tools onto Subversion and establish the foundation for future ALM expansion and automation of requirements management, tracker work flow, testing and continuous integration and deployment," said Matt Speelman, director of information technology for Ameritas. "CollabNet's open ALM platform and expert Agile training services will allow us to design, develop and deploy software applications faster, more efficiently and at a lower cost than ever before."

Ameritas offers a wide range of insurance and financial products and services to individuals, families and businesses. Like many companies, its IT organization is transitioning from legacy software tools to more extendible and social platforms that help deliver quality software faster to customers and internal IT users. Ameritas is implementing TeamForge to consolidate its SCM tools onto Subversion, allowing developers to use the tools they want and giving managers the administration, governance, project management and code review/search capabilities that will lower costs and deliver tangible return-on-investment. In the future, Ameritas plans to extend its use of TeamForge beyond enterprise SCM and into ALM.

"TeamForge helped us start our SCM transition immediately and saved us money," said Kevin Tucker, manager - information technology for Ameritas. "We determined it is the best ALM platform for cost-effectively managing our company's Subversion deployments and it allows our developers and teams to scale development efforts without having to add incremental staff. It helps us work smarter and more efficiently."

Created by CollabNet in 2000, Subversion is an open source version control system that is used by more than five million developers around the globe. TeamForge is deployed by global IT organizations to connect and streamline the entire software delivery lifecycle. Used by both small teams and large 85,000-seat deployments, it provides the flexibility organizations need to embrace a range of tools, processes and clouds to increase software innovation and employee morale. By federating (or integrating) previously disparate tools, TeamForge creates a common framework to create enterprise-wide governance, security and traceability needed by today's software-driven organizations.

When it comes to global SCM success, CollabNet delivers tools and services to millions of developers using Subversion, CVS and Git. CollabNet's Subversion Edge offers a complete certified stack of Apache HTTP Server, Apache Subversion and ViewVC, along with a browser-based interface for ease-of-use and management. Enterprise Git also can be managed within TeamForge as a standalone solution or side-by-side with Subversion.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
