Electric Cloud Brings Enterprise–Grade Build-Test-Deploy Automation to Smaller Organizations
ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition supports each team’s unique development environment without the overhead of homegrown or open source solutions
San Francisco, Calif., JavaOne and Oracle Develop 2010 - September 21, 2010 Electric Cloud®, the leading provider of software production management (SPM) solutions, released ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition at JavaOne and Oracle Develop 2010, providing smaller teams and workgroups with the enterprise-class features and flexibility of ElectricCommander. ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition (ECWE) allows smaller organizations to automate and manage their software build-test-deploy processes, freeing developers from maintaining homegrown, script-based systems, or adjusting their processes to fit open source tools.
“Every development organization, whether large or small, has unique requirements for its software build-test-deploy process. Instead of creating a homegrown system or being forced to adapt their processes to fit open source or commercial off-the-shelf tools, ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition works the way developers work,” said Usman Muzaffar, Vice President of Product Management for Electric Cloud.
ElectricCommander provides a single system to support multiple components, products and / or platforms, making it the build-test-deploy automation system of choice for both small and large teams developing in complex Java, C++, .NET or multi-language environments. Unlike open source tools for builds or testing, ElectricCommander provides the flexibility teams need, without forcing them to change processes, and unlike a homegrown approach, ElectricCommander adapts easily to changing requirements and requires minimal administrative overhead.
The new ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition employs the same underlying infrastructure as the ElectricCommander enterprise product but is designed to support processes and workloads of smaller organizations. ECWE has the flexibility to adapt and grow over time as business needs dictate. As teams and projects grow, ECWE can be easily transitioned to the enterprise version, so there is no need to make painful infrastructure and process changes down the road.
ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition in Java Development Environments
ECWE lets individual Java project teams harness the full power of the Java EE 6 development stack in their build-test-deploy process. Integration challenges can become a roadblock to adopting the best new Java-based commercial and open source tools for development. ElectricCommander’s unique technology streamlines the integration of disparate tools into a single system that is easily customized to the team's workflow.
Additionally, ElectricCommander implements Java utilities and integrates the relevant data from these tools into a cogent analysis of project health. This saves teams the time consuming task of learning multiple utilities and ensures their use is both effective and consistent. The dashboard and access control capabilities mean that individuals only see the information that is relevant to their team and role in the business.
ECWE also makes it easier to implement Agile development in a Java environment by governing the build-test-deploy process. The Agile requirement of testing working code at the end of each day doesn’t always mesh smoothly with Java’s modularity. ElectricCommander mitigates the introduction of issues into the code base and highlights issues as soon as they occur. Its automation and parallelism capabilities mean that build and test tasks are executed as early as possible and output is captured and analyzed in real-time thanks to its post-processor.
