Seapine Software, Inc., a global provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, today announced that it continues to experience strong revenue performance and its eleventh year of annual license growth. With sales growing faster than the market rate for ALM vendors, Seapine added over one thousand new companies as customers of its award-winning software configuration management, defect tracking, and automated software testing solutions.
Seapine’s record growth in 2006 was driven by increased worldwide adoption of the company’s TestTrack® Pro, Surround SCM®, and QA Wizard® solutions by leading organizations such as Logitech, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Siemens, and the National Institutes of Health. Seapine’s outstanding showing was accelerated by the release of two new products in the fourth quarter—TestTrack® TCM for test case planning and tracking, and TestTrack® Studio for complete management of development processes, issues, and quality.
“Companies understand that developing software, either for internal use, as packaged software, or imbedded software in devices, has become a critical core competency that presents an opportunity for process improvement, cost savings, and risk mitigation,” said Richard Riccetti, president and CEO, Seapine Software. “Using our tools in the software development process allows development and IT departments to create better software faster, with a high degree of confidence in the quality of the application.”
According to Tom Carozza, director of strategy, Seapine Software, “The consistent growth that Seapine experienced in 2006 is a clear demonstration that major, global organizations recognize the value of effective software development practices and they are choosing Seapine’s quality-centric ALM tools to manage change and improve processes and quality in their software development activities.”
Global organizations are successfully using Seapine’s tools to:
• Provide real-time, secure access to source code files and issues while enabling parallel development, facilitating team communication, managing processes and tools used to create repeatable builds, and ensuring configuration changes are tracked
• Track and prioritize tasks, issues, and work items while streamlining communications and meeting critical compliance and policy requirements, such as Sarbanes-Oxley
• Automate functional and regression testing while tracking development-related defects and controlling changes to test scripts
All of Seapine’s ALM products generate metrics-rich, customizable management reports and enable compliance with internal and external management controls. Seapine’s tools enable a variety of popular software development methodologies and help managers implement and enforce industry-recognized software engineering best practices.
