AccuRev Enables More Efficient Geographically Distributed Development at NaviMedix: Strong Performance over the WAN and Ease of Use for Distributed Teams Key to Success

Share Article

AccuRev Inc. today announced that NaviMedix, the leader and innovator in automating provider communications with health plans, care management companies and other health industry participants, has standardized on AccuRev(R) for process-centric software configuration management (SCM). Corporations, such as ISVs managing a lot of component or Web-based development where software is critical to their business, are increasingly requiring a more Agile SCM solution and relying on AccuRev.

We manage over ten concurrent products with multiple customizations for each, including an extensive library of components. This required us to be able to look at and manage our overall development environment more graphically, and self manage it at a more granular level within each project. AccuRev fit the bill.

    After an exhaustive evaluation period of all the market leaders, AccuRev with AccuBridge for JIRA was selected over a short-list of competitive offerings to replace IBM Rational ClearCase for its ability to:

-- Move to a more Agile and efficient geographically distributed development environment, while enabling offshore development without additional licenses, hardware and software costs;

-- Free up SCM engineers to address activities outside of configuration management control such as Build and Release Management, Auditing, and Environment Management.

-- Provide a self-service development model by putting the power of AccuRev in the hands of the right people at the right time.

"With AccuRev, we can put its capabilities in the hands of the people who are actually working on these products. We don't need to do a brain dump to our SCM team every time a specific branch is created or merge is required, which ensures information isn't lost in translation," said Paul Vienneau, director, software development at NaviMedix. "We manage over ten concurrent products with multiple customizations for each, including an extensive library of components. This required us to be able to look at and manage our overall development environment more graphically, and self manage it at a more granular level within each project. AccuRev fit the bill."
