SmartBear Launches Software Development Management Tool, DevComplete

Ten Years of Innovation Packed into a New Offering Targeted at Development Team Needs
Beverly, MA — November 01, 2010 —

SmartBear Software (SmartBear) today released DevCompleteTM. A complete project management, requirements management, and defect tracking tool, DevComplete is squarely focused on helping development teams organize, manage, and track project tasks and their artifacts throughout an Agile or Waterfall software development lifecycle.

At a high level, DevComplete increases a team’s visibility, tracks project progress, burn downs, slipping tasks, and variances through an array of sophisticated reports and dashboards. DevComplete gives project managers a tool to create project plans and decompose requirements into project tasks and deliverables. Teams can easily track daily project status, organize and track requirements, and link any defects discovered back to the original requirement and project task providing end-to-end traceability.

DevComplete originates from SoftwarePlanner, SmartBear’s award winning application lifecycle management (ALM) tool. It packs 10 years of innovation into a focused offering for development teams that want to gain more control over their software release process from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.

This release also adds enhanced integration with other development tools such as Microsoft Project and Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Atlassian JIRA, IBM Rational Team Concert and DOORS, HP Quality Center, RallyDev, VersionOne, Bugzilla, Perforce, Subversion and others.

Ian McLeod, EVP Products, said, “DevComplete arms developers and project managers with an affordable, enterprise-class tool to improve software quality through tight correlations between project tasks, requirements and defects. Using our secure SaaS platform, development teams of all sizes can immediately get started and reap the benefits of better project visibility and status, take corrective action, and better plan for future releases.”

New, additional free project management offering (also announced today)

Alongside DevComplete, we are releasing DevPlanner, an on-demand project management tool that is available entirely free for small teams. This provides development teams of up to ten users the ability to create project plans, assign tasks, track progress, and improve resource allocation and agility using a secure SaaS platform that supports enterprise needs.

Seamless growth path to comprehensive application lifecycle management (ALM)

Companies that are looking to expand cross-functional collaboration, can seamlessly upgrade to ALMComplete (previously known as SoftwarePlanner) to enable comprehensive application lifecycle management capabilities as all tools are based on a single, Web-based platform.
