Kovair Integrates IBM ClearCase Configuration Management System to Expand the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Ecosystem

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - November 12, 2008) - Kovair Software, Inc. today announced the release of integration between Kovair Global Lifecycle Solution and ClearCase Software Configuration Management System from IBM Rational. The integration uses a ClearCase adapter developed using Kovair's SOA based Integration Bus Technology -- the Omnibus.

"The integration with ClearCase, one of the leading Software Configuration Management Systems, helps the users use two market leading software tools in their respective categories within a single framework," said Kovair CTO, Sky Basu. "By virtue of integrating ClearCase using Omnibus, it also becomes integrated with other existing and future tools in the Kovair Omnibus Ecosystem without explicitly making point-to-point integration with those tools."

The Omnibus Technology helps in establishing event-based integration between Kovair Global Lifecycle, and IBM/Rational ClearCase. The objective is to overcome the hurdles in Configuration Management activities, where Project Managers, Developers, and Testers often grapple with the 'right version' of the source code Files for a Release.

"This integration is the most recent addition to our continuing expansion of best of breed tools integrations with the Kovair Global Lifecycle Solution for ALM and IT Management," commented Bipin Shah, CEO & Chairman of Kovair Software.

The integration has several advantages including helping Developers and Project Managers trace the exact code that has been written to implement a specific Requirement, Service Request or a Bug fix. In addition, this Integration implements code review and verification process in the Kovair Global Lifecycle framework.

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