AccuRev Selected by Avid

Enhanced Performance and Scalability for Cross-Platform Geographically Distributed Teams

AccuRev announced that Avid Technology has standardized on AccuRev for software development process management.

Avid selected AccuRev after an evaluation of providers to support multiple cross-platform development teams spread across several geographically distributed locations throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. AccuRev enables Avid development teams to:

  • Integrate multiple Agile and non-Agile software development processes for an initial team of 400 developers across Windows, Linux and Mac OS platforms
  • Efficiently manage componentized development for project sharing between teams
  • Effectively manage refactoring and other Agile best practices
  • Be more flexible and higher performing than under their previous mastership-based SCCM solution

Michael Madden, vice president, engineering at Avid said, “The ability of AccuRev to support Agile and non-Agile development processes, as well as streamline code sharing between different teams was a major consideration. Performance and scalability were key, especially WAN performance, since we have multiple active development sites worldwide constituting multiple product lines and organizations. AccuRev will increase our ability to work efficiently in this complex environment.”

AccuRev provides Avid with enhanced control, visibility, and audit-ability across their development organization with improved support for parallel development and an alternative to MultiSite replication. Bi-directional synchronization with IBM Rational ClearQuest using change packages associates code changes with issues and supports task-based development with a substantial decrease in the cost-per-developer.

“Avid’s desire to be a leader in development organization productivity drove their need to support multiple complex processes, across multiple locations on multiple continents,” explained Lorne Cooper, CEO, AccuRev. “We’re proud to be chosen to manage the software development process in such a demanding environment, and look to leaders such as Avid to drive our future development priorities.”
