Kovair Selects Perforce as the First Software Configuration Management System to Integrate

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - January 2, 2008) - Kovair Software, Inc. and Perforce Software, Inc. today announced the release of integration between Kovair Global Lifecycle and Perforce SCM System. The integration uses Perforce adapter developed using Kovair's recently released Integration Technology -- Omnibus, Integration Bus for IT™.

"The integration with Perforce, one of the leading Software Configuration Management Systems, helps the users use two market leading software tools in their respective categories in a seamless manner," said Kovair Vice President Engineering, Atanu Majumdar. "By virtue of integrating Perforce using Omnibus, it also becomes integrated with other present and future tools integrated with Omnibus without explicitly making point-to-point integration with those tools."

The integration covers all aspects of Perforce including Jobs, Change List and Files and makes them accessible from Kovair. It synchronizes the Jobs and Change List between Perforce and Kovair so that these items become visible to the Kovair users. Similarly, by virtue of this integration synchronization, items like Requirements, Issues, and Change Items from Kovair are visible to the Perforce users. In addition the integration federates the information about the files in Kovair, so that the actual file contents are made available in Kovair on-demand through Perforce API.

"Kovair's Omnibus technology provides Perforce users with more than just access to a suite of supported partner tools," said John Walker, principal product consultant at Perforce Software. "This technology also provides the unifying backbone for implementing the workflow processes our customers require to support their specific business needs."

The integration is available now as an add-on to Kovair's flagship product, Kovair Global Lifecycle.
