CollabNet has announced a collaboration with HP that provides an end-to-end Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution that supports software application development from requirements definition, through development and testing, to release.
The solution enables business analysts, project managers, developers, and quality assurance teams to collaborate in defining, developing, and testing applications in a distributed environment while working with their choice of tools. At the heart of the solution is the CollabNet TeamForge platform's technical integration with HP Quality Center. The integration provides bi-directional synchronization of requirements, epics, user stories, defects, tests, and more. The CollabNet TeamForge platform will be offered via referral or co-sell in the HP MarketPlace Referral Program. Certified integration software is available as a free open-source download at www.collab.net/HP.
The integration with the CollabNet TeamForge platform includes HP Quality Center's Requirements, Defects, and Test Management Modules. The CollabNet TeamForge Connector Framework provides real-time synchronization between the products, associating requirements, defects, tasks, and other development artifacts directly with source code.
"HP Quality Center and TeamForge are ideal complements, each providing 100% agnostic support for every technology, IDE, and development process," said CollaNet's Bill Portelli. "The combination provides both developers and quality assurance professionals with unparalleled flexibility in creating business capabilities and applications -- enabling collaboration not only within a project, but also enabling software asset leverage across projects in the enterprise as well."
