CollabNet, a global leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Agile ALM, today announced the availability of emotive Connect for TeamForge (TeamForge2Go), a free mobile application that connects on-the-move developers to the TeamForge platform through mobile devices and tablets. CollabNet partnered with Oakland, Calif.-based emotive, the industry leader for mobile development platforms for the enterprise, to deliver the downloadable app: http://www.emotive.com/apps/collabnet.
“Today’s developers are under increasing pressure to deliver software faster, and to be connected at all times to teams and projects in order to meet the quickening pace of enterprise IT,” said Bill Portelli, co-founder and CEO of CollabNet. “The emotive mobile app brings the core essence of TeamForge to a developer community that makes up an increasingly mobilized workforce. Developers want and need access to the tools they use every day to view and respond to data faster and more easily, and the mobile device is increasingly the platform of choice.”
Because most mobile development tools are limited in scope and breadth, CollabNet partnered with emotive to create a rich, end-to-end developer experience for the TeamForge ALM and cloud development platform. The new application supports CollabNet’s strategy to bring the convenience and collaborative benefits of cloud development and mobile IT to the enterprise. Coupled with the CloudForge cloud development platform and the mobile application, TeamForge’s access and deployment capabilities are extended through on-premise, public and private cloud, and mobile platforms.
emotive specializes in building and deploying efficient, secure, scalable collaborative mobile applications for mobile devices and tablets. The emotive Connect for TeamForge app is not just a replication of TeamForge functionality, but offers a true mobile app experience with practical levels of use for easy viewing and fast response. It includes voice-to-text input for conveniently adding comments to a work item, and lets developers monitor and edit critical project artifacts, including epics, stories, defects and tasks. Users also have the ability to see changes to artifacts in real-time, and to visualize data graphically or textually, update tracker information and post comments all from their mobile device.
“Increasingly, distributed development organizations require new forms of collaboration among teams, projects and people, and mobile devices are driving completely new methods for interaction,” said John Hubinger, CEO for emotive. “The CollabNet mobile app is designed for the developer community and uses native device features to augment traditional processes, simplify data entry and enrich the user’s experience. Application development teams are used to working in a distributed world – and now they are embracing the mobile world as well.”
