AccuRev Only Software Configuration Management Tool Winner

Takes Home Fourth Jolt Award for Ability to Manage Large Scale Agile Development

AccuRev Inc. was the only software configuration management (SCM) vendor to be selected by TechWeb for its 19th Annual Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards in the Change and Configuration Management category. This is AccuRev's second Jolt Productivity Award, adding to its two previously awarded Jolt Product Excellence awards.

Hugh Bawtree, Jolt Award judge and Principal at Bawtree Software Contracting, Ltd., said, "AccuRev is a great tool. It's the best software configuration management tool for integrating configuration management and workflow management with a sophisticated user interface, for both developers and CM managers. In this last year, we've seen AccuRev add features and tweaks that enable it to support large, distributed teams, namely: Multi-stage continuous integration, multi-server scalable replication and visual project filtering."

The prestigious Jolt Awards recognize those products that have jolted the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier, and more efficient. Winners are selected from among hundreds of qualified nominations by an esteemed panel of judges consisting of industry insiders, columnists, and technology leaders.

As teams grow or shrink, and environments change, development processes change too, putting development teams using antiquated SCM tool sets in a bind. Supporting Agile development, Geographically Distributed development, and Parallel development is not easily accomplished with traditional file-based, branch and label SCM tools.

AccuRev allows teams to establish, automate and then change their desired workflow and release process without development disruption, and manage it transparently from any location across the entire software development infrastructure.

This year AccuRev stood out for its ability to efficiently manage large scale software development and continuous integration environments, a typical roadblock for many companies that have employed the Agile best practice.

  • Using Multi-stage Continuous Integration, teams have full autonomy to develop in a way that best fits their project without adversely affecting other team members not currently developing in an Agile manner or following the same process.
  • Additionally, AccuRev introduced a breakthrough in visual scalability and usability for viewing software projects. This allows departments, teams and individuals the choice to see how they fit into the entire development process or filter down their view to only their project. Managers can also filter to view work under current development.
  • AccuRev also introduced the ability for development teams to utilize multiple commodity hardware servers for any combination of local and remote teams in order to scale efficiently and more cost effectively to thousands of users.
