DeLorme Standardizes on AccuRev Software Configuration Management for Multiple Parallel Projects and Enhanced Collaboration: Increases Development Productivity and Brings Immediate Rewards from Continuous Integration and Refactoring

Share Article

AccuRev Inc. today announced that DeLorme, the innovation leader in mapping, GIS, and GPS technology, has standardized on AccuRev(R) for process-centric software configuration management (SCM). Directly responsible for many of the major technological advances made in the mapping industry over the past 30 years, DeLorme chose AccuRev to be at the center of its best-of-breed application lifecycle management (ALM) strategy.

Our previous development methodology was predicated on the limitations of our SCM tool and put us in a box

    AccuRev was chosen as the benchmark to which all other leading SCM tools were evaluated against, including Microsoft Team Foundation, Perforce, Seapine and CollabNet Subversion. AccuRev was selected for its ability to visually represent and dynamically model DeLorme's development process, and manage multiple parallel releases in the most efficient manner.

"Our previous development methodology was predicated on the limitations of our SCM tool and put us in a box," says Christian Ratliff, Software Architect, DeLorme. "AccuRev not only modernized our development process, but enabled us to continually improve by rethinking our development processes. We realized immediate advantages with AccuRev by refactoring and adding continuous integration and its visual interface opened up new lines of communication and collaboration allowing us to do things that would be much harder or impossible in other SCM systems."

AccuRev increased productivity by eliminating broken builds, and teams that were unable to access the previous SCM repository for 24 hours at a time while a new build was created are now able to work continuously. AccuRev has also made test integration a very straight forward undertaking, and increased overall development productivity.
