AccuRev Launches AgileCycle Suite for Agile ALM (Application Lifecycle Management)

Provides CIOs and Development Managers With Tools to Fully Automate and Optimize Agile Initiatives

LEXINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/26/10 -- AccuRev, Inc. today announced AgileCycle™, the first fully-integrated best-of-breed Agile ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) solution incorporating Software Configuration Management, Agile Lifecycle Management, and Build and Release Management. AgileCycle consists of the award winning software development tools AccuRev Enterprise, AnthillPro, and Rally Enterprise, delivering a comprehensive Agile suite for scaling and optimizing the Agile software development process.

AgileCycle is designed specifically for today's Agile development teams and provides CIOs and development managers with a best-of-breed tool set to further automate the Agile software development lifecycle. AgileCycle offers a single-vendor solution with AccuRev providing comprehensive services across the toolset, including deployment, training and support. This combined solution ensures complete management visibility of projects, improved team productivity and quicker ROI for scaling Agile development initiatives.

Agile development methods continue to gain ground due to dramatic time and cost savings for companies and their software development organizations. "By 2012, agile development methods will be utilized in 80 percent of all software development projects," according to a recent report by Gartner ("Predicts 2010: Agile and Cloud Impact Application Development Directions" - December 3, 2009).

"Many development teams today use a collection of 'Waterfall' and Agile tools for Agile product management, software configuration and build," said Lorne Cooper, AccuRev's president. "Traditional toolsets were not designed for Agile methods and processes, so patching these tools together decreases the benefits that Agile provides and creates barriers between the Agile and not-yet-Agile parts of the organization. AgileCycle's best-of-breed solutions dramatically improve the efficiency of Agile projects across the development lifecycle, and reduce the barriers between the Agile and not-yet-Agile groups in the organization."

"The more we have used Agile Scrum methodology, the more we understand the importance of having high-quality, integrated tools," said Ben Weatherall, Configuration Manager, PDX, Inc. "We are currently using AccuRev, AnthillPro, and Rally Software together as a best-of-breed Agile ALM solution. AgileCycle will allow me to reduce my TCO while boosting overall productivity by providing a vendor supported framework already customized to improve our Agile development process."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
