Fear No More: Platform Federation Is Here


Last week we announced the release of TeamForge® 7 with Orchestrate.  This release adds a wealth of new capability that provides enterprise-wide orchestration across projects, teams, tools and clouds—all in one packaged, “federated” platform. This new platform offers customers flexibility, visibility, traceability, automated process compliance, and centralized management.

Some cool features of our TeamForge 7 release include:

•  Adaptive planning boards accessed through a flexible drag-and-drop framework completely integrated with our native ALM platform. The planning boards adjust to methodology changes and extend Agile planning into CI/CD.

•  Enterprise-level lifecycle dashboards (based on 14 years of CollabNet expertise) that provide packaged and customizable reports with holistic or granular visibility into projects, teams, and delivery chains.

•  Innovative usability improvements and a brand-new look and feel that speed task completion and team ramp-up.


Built For You

We designed this new federated platform to help our customers solve today’s software challenges and deliver great applications. Coordinating point-tool choices and providing the centralized and social collaboration needed to manage change in a structured way are key elements for successful innovation and execution. We believe that together TeamForge 7 Orchestrate provides the market with a solution to address the dilemma of having to choose a monolithic platform over best-of-breed point tools. TeamForge 7 with Orchestrate let’s you collect and store metadata related to key lifecycle activities and draw associations between disparate tools for the ultimate purpose of traceability and choice.

Our early feedback has been that TeamForge 7 with Orchestrate is reducing software development cycle time by offering the right combination of tool choice, integration and traceability. As you look at TeamForge 7.0 with Orchestrate, I’d like to hear your feedback about the benefits.  I’d also like to know if there are other features that you would like us to include in future releases.

I welcome your comments and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
