Seapine Software’s ALM Tools Enhance Ovitas’ Content Management Solutions Delivery

Seapine’s development tools enable content lifecycle solutions provider to accurately and efficiently manage projects and software development lifecycles

Cincinnati, OH – January 12, 2010 – Seapine Software, a leading global provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, announced today that Ovitas, Inc, of Burlington, Massachusetts (www.Ovitas.com), has deployed its requirements management, test case management, and software configuration management tools to improve project management, solutions development, and source file control.

Ovitas, a leading provider of workflow oriented, structured and unstructured content lifecycle information management solutions, employs expert consultancy, design, and development for the deployment of mission-critical, workflow-oriented content lifecycle solutions. The company’s development team currently uses Seapine’s TestTrack Pro in its software development process to efficiently track and manage defects and issues when building content and knowledge management solutions for its customers. The recent implementation of Seapine’s TestTrack RM, TestTrack TCM, and Surround SCM now enable the Ovitas development organization to manage the critical phases of its development lifecycle, from managing project requirements to creating test cases to resolving defects, as well as managing the software change process.

“Seapine’s TestTrack Pro has proved to be a powerful tool, enabling us to effectively track defects and issues in the development of content lifecycle solutions,” said Rajeev Voleti, director of development, Ovitas. “Now that we’ve integrated the other TestTrack products and Surround SCM into our development environment, we’ll be able to better manage projects with customers, improve our requirements traceability, utilize better source control, and streamline our solutions development. Seapine’s product suite ensures our solutions meet customer specifications through requirements traceability and helps us manage the entire project lifecycle by linking the requirements, test plans, source code, and helpdesk in an integrated platform.”

Ovitas expects to see significant improvements in development efficiency and productivity through Seapine’s collaboration and traceability features. Seapine’s collaboration features help Ovitas’ development processes move efficiently by automatically assigning tasks and ensuring team members adhere to processes. Other collaboration features, such as email notifications and email conversation tracking, ensures Ovitas’ team members stay informed of each other's tasks and progress. Ovitas plans to use Seapine’s ALM tools to bridge its US organization with its Hungarian office for globally distributed team development.
