Our PeopleSoft and Siebel teams can now easily version their development artifacts with AccuRev using the new AccuBridge for Windows Explorer. Taking advantage of the multiple version history, they no longer are required to keep huge copies of databases lying around and can respond more quickly to maintenance and fix situations.

AccuRev Web Interface

The AccuRev Web Interface, developed with the Google Web Toolkit, provides a desktop look and feel for accessing files, streams, and version differences

Development managers can easily browse projects, and perform code reviews from any location. Team leads, release engineers or developers may create new streams of development or download files and documents to work on while out of the office. Permalinks provide direct browser access to AccuRev-controlled elements in the repository, providing managers and team leads the ability to view changes and dive into pertinent details. They can also be used in collaboration tools and frameworks such as wiki's, forums, and blogs. Users may also use them to enhance third-party issue tracking systems by associating code changes with issues in change documents. AccuBridge for Windows Explorer

AccuBridge for Windows Explorer allows users to manage their work under AccuRev version control by simply right-clicking in Microsoft Windows Explorer.

Product managers, technical writers and other non-programming knowledge workers may now link their work product, such as product documentation, marketing collateral, meeting notes, spreadsheets and presentations, into the overall release. Enhances compliance with FDA, Sarbanes-Oxley or other company mandates for process controls and full audit-ability. Chris Barnes, Senior Systems Analyst and AccuRev Administrator at Alaska Airlines, said, "Our PeopleSoft and Siebel teams can now easily version their development artifacts with AccuRev using the new AccuBridge for Windows Explorer. Taking advantage of the multiple version history, they no longer are required to keep huge copies of databases lying around and can respond more quickly to maintenance and fix situations."

Damon Poole, AccuRev CTO, said, "After deploying AccuRev to the typical users of software configuration management, other people in the organization that interact with the engineering groups also wish to work in the same environment and receive the same benefits. These new AccuRev interfaces extend the ease of access to shared assets and significantly contribute to closer collaboration. This is especially valuable for Agile teams where multiple disciplines are interacting on a daily basis."
