    In the report, Gartner states, "A wave of new requirements has arisen because of increased attention to auditability, globally distributed development, agile practices and the progressive adoption of more-disciplined governance and management oversight. During the past several years, the open-source and commercial products that had been the standards of the sector since the mid-1990s began to decrease in popularity. Many users of Concurrent Versions System (CVS), Visual Source Safe, Polytron Version Control System (PVCS) and IBM's basic ClearCase are exploring new offerings to see whether they are better able to support emerging needs."

Cliff Utstein, vice president, marketing, AccuRev said, "AccuRev solves the difficult issues facing today's software development teams through industry leading innovation. The rapid adoption of AccuRev software has provided development teams powerful tools to manage geographically distributed development, parallel development, and agile development processes. Our vision is to deliver to our customers a significant improvement in development effectiveness through innovative tools and processes."

AccuRev is the only SCCM solution to manage an organization's flexible software release process together with its software assets directly in a stream-based, integrated version control and issue-tracking graphical user interface. In addition to making co-located and geographically distributed teams' current methods of work more productive, AccuRev makes more ways of working possible. Unlike traditional file-based, branch and label source code control solutions that put constraints on teams' abilities to work with multiple and simultaneous process models (e.g., Scrum, XP, Lean, RUP) or work in a multistage continuous integration environment, AccuRev unleashes the potential of development teams, opening up possibilities never before realized.
