CollabNet is a developer of software development and application lifecycle management tools.
One of its first products was SourceXchange, a software development marketplace, where developers could bid for contracts to develop open source software applications posted by corporations. CollabNet retired SourceXchange after 18 months and increased its focus on SourceCast, a platform it had originally released in December 1999 to help distributed teams build software applications. After undergoing a few major releases, SourceCast was re-launched as CollabNet Enterprise Edition in 2002. In 2007, CollabNet acquired the SourceForge Enterprise Edition business line from VA Software. CollabNet subsequently merged the CollabNet Enterprise Edition and SourceForge Enterprise Edition products, and re-launched the combined platform as TeamForge in 2009.
In 2000, CollabNet founded the open source project Subversion, a version control system. CollabNet started the Subversion project as an effort to write an open-source version-control system that operated much like CVS but fixed bugs and supplied some features missing in CVS. In November 2009, CollabNet worked with Apache Software Foundation to get Subversion accepted into the Apache Incubator.
In February 2010, CollabNet acquired Danube, a company specializing in Agile/Scrum management software tools (including ScrumWorks), consulting, and training. In October 2010, CollabNet acquired Codesion, a company specializing in open source tools. In early 2011, CollabNet added its commercial TeamForge and ScrumWorks Pro tools to the Codesion service. On July 30, 2012 CollabNet extended the capabilities of Codesion and released it under the name CloudForge.
Collabnet develops Subversion Edge, a Subversion software for Windows, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Solaris and CollabNet TeamForge, for application lifecycle management. Other products include Lab Management to manage configuration options, ScrumWorks for agile development and CloudForge for software deployment and scaling. CollabNet also produces the open source CollabNet Desktop, released under the Eclipse Public License, which allows developers to connect to subversion repositories as well as servers running CollabNet TeamForge, and CollabNet Lab Management.
