CollabNet OnDemand Enables Development Teams Anywhere to Quickly Set Up and Adopt World-class Distributed Software Development Infrastructure via Simple Online Subscription

LONDON/BRISBANE, Calif., March 28, 2008 - CollabNet, the leading provider of solutions for distributed software development and the company behind Subversion®, the world’s leading Software Configuration Management tool, today announced the immediate availability of CollabNet OnDemand. CollabNet OnDemand delivers an integrated suite of enterprise-class issue tracking, software configuration management, project management, and collaboration tools, all delivered via a secure Web-based subscription model. Based on CollabNet Enterprise Edition and hosted and supported by CollabNet, CollabNet OnDemand provides the same robust feature set for distributed development to enable project teams to get up and running quickly and scale as they grow. Within days of sign-up, developers and project team members can begin collaborating on requirements, code, issues, tasks, documents, releases, and easily manage their content and artifacts anytime and anywhere via a shared Web workspace.

CollabNet OnDemand makes CollabNet’s proven operational expertise in enterprise hosting available to teams of any size. With CollabNet OnDemand, project teams can eliminate the hassle of procuring and configuring hardware and the delays for assembling and administrating piecemeal development solutions from various point tools.

Development teams who have already standardised on other development environments now have the flexibility to use the enterprise-tested CollabNet platform that is specifically designed for distributed software development without disrupting internal workflows, while CollabNet’s integrated security layers ensure that data are safe, secure, and recoverable.

Today, there are already 25 enterprise projects running on CollabNet OnDemand. A free trial is currently available to every new user on any project along with an attractive $50 monthly per-user subscription model; a demo is available at

“Traditional development tools were developed in isolation and designed for local use, making them hard to adapt to the needs of today’s distributed and outsourced development, governance and IP security requirements, SOA development mandates, and open source initiatives. The CollabNet platform was designed with these needs in mind, delivering integrated Web-based development solutions that unify decentralised teams to simplify the development process and improve productivity while driving down infrastructure and administration costs,” said Bill Portelli, CEO of CollabNet. “With CollabNet OnDemand, CollabNet lowers the barrier of entry for project teams and developers anywhere in the world who want to use the top-of-the-line distributed development platform. Teams are productive in days rather than weeks or months and as the usage scales, CollabNet OnDemand easily scales with them to hundreds and thousands of users.”
