Three key trends are having a profound impact on the global software development industry today- Agile software development, the emergence of DevOps, and Cloud-based development infrastructures. Legacy vendors have struggled to keep pace with these trends, giving rise to a new generation of paradigms and technologies. In the summer of 2012, CollabNet applied its strengths in open source, distributed development, social collaboration and hosted developer communities to address those drivers, resulting in a ground-breaking framework known as Enterprise Cloud Development. The results have been positive, as enterprises have been quick to accept the logic behind the framework, and the tools …

Enterprise Cloud Development: A Paradigm shift

ECD

There’s no denying it – Enterprise Cloud Development (ECD) represents the next evolution in managing modern software development processes across the enterprise.

There are good reasons for an enterprise to consider moving from a traditional in-house IT model to the cloud. First, enterprises will …

CollabNet to Present The Five Steps of Enterprise Cloud Development

Back in December we talked about how enterprises are continuing to embrace and adopt cloud development practices (http://www.collab.net/news/press/2011/ecd.html). We see this emerging trend of Enterprise Cloud Development as one of the major transformations happening in IT today. What started as a movement of small teams working on small projects to spin up projects quickly and deploy applications utilizing a range of PaaS offerings, has steadily moved deeper into the enterprise IT domain. To help extend the benefits of cloud development beyond the team level, we have drawn from our years of experience and worked with customers, partners and industry influencers …

Enterprise Cloud Development: Beyond Shadow IT

Hosted version control providers have been around as long as Subversion and Git. CollabNet released the first version of Subversion in 2000 while Git first appeared in 2005. CollabNet’s Codesion (nee CVSDude) started out as a server in a bedroom in 2002 and weren’t the first or only kids on the block. Today, a quick Google search for “hosted version control” yields over 29 million results. Obviously, there aren’t 29 million providers out there but it is a topic of much discussion and debate.   To date, most of the users of cloud-based version control have had little or no …
