CollabNet and CollabNet-Sponsored Subversion Open Source Project Both Named to SD Times 100

Distributed ALM Leader and Popular Open Source SCM Tool Recognized for Industry Direction-Setting and Innovation

BRISBANE, CA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - CollabNet, the leader in distributed application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, announced today that it has been named to the 2009 SD Times 100 list in the Application Lifecycle Management category. CollabNet also announced that the CollabNet-sponsored Subversion open source project has been named to the 2009 SD Times 100 list in the Software Configuration Management category. Subversion is a leading version control and software configuration management (SCM) tool for distributed teams. Each year, the SD Times 100 honors companies, organizations, and individuals that most broadly "set the agenda" for software development managers, developers, and the industry through leadership and innovation during the previous calendar year. More information about CollabNet and Subversion is available at

"We're honored to have both CollabNet and the CollabNet-sponsored Subversion open source project recognized by the editors of SD Times," said Bill Portelli, chief executive officer, CollabNet. "With CollabNet TeamForge and Subversion, we are pioneering application lifecycle management in the cloud and bringing the best practices of open source communities to all software development teams."

The 2009 SD Times 100 honors 2008 achievements. Last year, CollabNet introduced SourceForge Enterprise 5.0, the predecessor to CollabNet TeamForge, which brought enhanced ALM features to the industry's leading Web-based distributed development platform. CollabNet also pushed the envelope of cloud-based software development, offering both a SaaS-based integrated suite of enterprise-class issue tracking, SCM, project management, and collaboration tools as well as on-demand lab management, i.e., build and test services in the cloud.

In 2008, the Subversion community released Subversion 1.5, which introduced highly anticipated features, including merge tracking, interactive conflict resolution, and merge history and annotated logs.

These honors build on two other recent award wins for CollabNet. In May, CollabNet was named to JMP Securities' "Hot 100" list, and, in April, CollabNet TeamForge won a Great Indian Developer Award in the Change and Configuration Management category.
