Seapine Software’s Surround SCM Named Jolt Product Excellence Awards Finalist

Mason, Ohio—December 21, 2007—Seapine Software, the leading provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management solutions, today announced that Surround SCM was selected as a finalist for the 18th Annual Jolt Product Excellence Awards.Effectively managing application changes from design through release and maintenance is critical to delivering quality software products on time. Through creating repeatable, enforceable, auditable, predictable processes, Seapine solutions help organizations track the progress and history of applications and manage change across the development lifecycle.One of six finalists in the Change and Configuration Management category, Surround SCM helps organizations track the progress and history of applications and manage change throughout the development lifecycle. “Software quality and reliability are lifelines to customer loyalty and profitability,” said Richard Riccetti, president and CEO, Seapine Software. “And those lifelines can be tenuous because software products and the software development process are comprised of thousands of assets that must be versioned, shared, and updated in a controlled manner. We’re extremely pleased that Surround SCM has been recognized as a tool that helps developers sustain a quality-ready advantage.”The Jolt Product Excellence Awards, sponsored by CMP Technology’s Dr. Dobb’s Journal, acknowledge the products, books, and technologies that “jolt” the industry with their significance. The evaluation process is now in progress and winners will be announced at the SD West conference in March 2008.
