Borland helps technology integration

Mumbai: Borland Software Corporation (Nasdaq NM: BORL) today announced that its application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions have been selected by several government agencies across Asia Pacific to improve productivity and manageability across the application lifecycle. Borland ALM solutions are used to develop a wide-range of applications for government-sector customers.

According to Boz Elloy, senior vice president of software , "As government agencies increasingly adopt e-Government initiatives to reduce costs and increase efficiencies, government agencies have obtained our ALM solutions to enhance their software capabilities, and, at the same time, improve the overall productivity of the entire development team."

Borland ALM solutions are also enabling Asia Pacific government agencies to integrate technology from a variety of vendors on multiple platforms, namely Java(tm), .NET(tm) and legacy systems.

“While Government requirements for high quality software applications have increased, government IT budgets have been reduced," said Elloy. "A complete application lifecycle management solution that integrates with existing systems and that does not lock customers into any technology or platform is therefore attractive to government organizations."

The Borland ALM solution is designed to enhance government software capabilities in accordance with their operational needs, uniting IT stakeholders involved in the software development process from the CIO and architect through to the developer, tester, deployment group and managers to provide a synergistic fast development team.
