Lexington, MA, United States, 2011/01/10 - AccuRev, Inc. announced that its AgileCycle Suite was selected by Dr. Dobb’s for the 20th Annual Jolt Productivity Awards, in the Change and Configuration Management category.
This latest award is AccuRev's fifth, adding to its four previously awarded Jolt honors. AccuRev is the leader in accelerating the adoption of Agile development across the enterprise.
The Jolt award judges remarked, "AccuRev is a company well-known for its commitment to Agile methodologies. Their AgileCycle Suite embodies their depth of expertise and understanding of how developers working on projects large or small need to effectively communicate and manage change.”
AgileCycle combines Software Configuration Management (SCM), Agile Project Management (APM), and Build & Release Management within a single suite. This facilitates the entire software lifecycle process from start to finish.
“What impressed us about AccuRev's solution was its comprehensive feature list (issue/merge/time tracking, project/program/requirements/test management, reporting, slick web interface, etc.), its "stream-based architecture" approach, and the integration of SCM best practices that ensure adherence to Agile practices while reaping the benefits that Agile has to offer.”
AccuRev provides this Agile ALM right out of the box. AgileCycle aids successful adoption and execution of Agile business practices in many project scenarios.
“AccuRev delivers award-winning solutions like AgileCycle, and is taking other steps to accelerate the adoption of Agile processes,” said Damon Poole, AccuRev’s founder and CTO. “AccuRev is committed to advancing Agile across the enterprise. We are working to identify the challenges our customers face and providing the tools, technology and services the software development community needs to make Agile a reality.”
In December, AccuRev released the Agile Software Development Glossary, which outlines Agile terms and methodologies software developers can use to plan, pilot and scale Agile processes. AccuRev features content from this glossary on the AccuRev Blog in the Agile Methods Defined Blog Post Series.
This month, AccuRev is releasing research that sheds new light on the obstacles software development organizations are facing as they move forward with Agile initiatives. Approximately 1,000 developers, testers, product managers and other business professionals in cities across the US throughout 2010 were surveyed as part of an Agile seminar series.
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.
