Share Article

AccuRev Inc. has appointed David Jabs vice president of engineering. A well-known engineering executive in the New England area, Mr. Jabs is responsible for managing the engineering group and overseeing overall product development of AccuRev(R) software configuration management (SCM). Mr. Jabs' experience will be particularly beneficial as AccuRev extends its product leadership position in supporting geographically distributed, outsourced and agile development teams managing multiple software releases in parallel.

AccuRev is clearly not looking to recreate another Rational ClearCase, but is building a team with the same ideals of solving customer's software development problems with a SCM tool built for today's challenges, much like the team at Atria did 17 years ago with ClearCase

    Mr. Jabs brings over 25 years of senior management and engineering experience to his role at AccuRev. Mr. Jabs was most recently vice president of engineering at Tibersoft where he was responsible for redefining the engineering strategy and completing key projects for Tibersoft's largest customers. Mr. Jabs was also one of the founding architects of IBM Rational ClearCase(R) at Atria Software where he participated in the architecture and design of many areas of the SCM product from the inception of the company and is a co-inventor of two ClearCase patents.

Lorne Cooper, AccuRev stated, "David brings a wealth of strategic management and hands-on engineering experience to AccuRev, including SCM experience as one of the co-creators and founding engineering team members of ClearCase. Organizations are hitting the limits of ClearCase for solving more prominent geographically distributed and massive parallel development challenges than existed just ten years ago, when ClearCase was considered innovative. AccuRev continues to address these problems and is hiring the most experienced SCM and software development tools individuals, and David is another great addition to the team."

Prior to Tibersoft, Mr. Jabs was vice president of engineering at Incipient Inc. In addition, Mr. Jabs served as vice president of engineering for American Internet Corporation, where he expanded the engineering team and was instrumental in negotiating a key OEM contract with Cisco Systems, which led to a subsequent acquisition by Cisco. He also served as an outside director for Lexington Software Associates, an SCM consulting company, providing guidance throughout the company's initial financing and eventual merger with Interwoven.

"AccuRev is clearly not looking to recreate another Rational ClearCase, but is building a team with the same ideals of solving customer's software development problems with a SCM tool built for today's challenges, much like the team at Atria did 17 years ago with ClearCase," says Mr. Jabs, vice president of engineering. "I am excited to be handed the torch to lead this talented group of engineers that is building the next market leading SCM solution."
