TechExcel Introduces Knowledge-Centric DevSuite Application Lifecycle Management Platform

Innovative, Knowledge-Based Approach Helps Even Far-Flung Development Teams Share Information; Strategy Brings the Right Product

LAFAYETTE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 11/01/06 -- TechExcel, Inc., the leading provider of knowledge-centric Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) software solutions, today announced the launch of DevSuite, the company's integrated, knowledge-centric ALM suite. By eliminating the silos of knowledge that exist between different teams and in different locales, DevSuite helps enterprises dramatically transform their development processes, increasing both the efficiency and overall quality of their end products.

Traditional approaches to ALM prescribe that every phase of software development -- from product concept to strategy, planning to implementation, and finally to verification and delivery -- rely on separate tools and processes. TechExcel DevSuite, by contrast, is built around the best-practices insight that knowledge is central to any product development initiative. This strategy helps enterprises communicate better and reduce their cycle times, allowing the right products for the right markets to be developed in the shortest possible time.

"As competition increases, development teams are under increasing pressure to deliver more sophisticated products in collapsing timeframes. DevSuite exists to make these challenges possible," said Tieren Zhou, CEO and Chief Software Architect at TechExcel. "DevSuite covers all aspects of best practice integrated Application Lifecycle Management. It was conceived, designed and implemented using a knowledge-centric architecture, with functional views into the various lifecycle phases. Teams and team members alike now have the knowledge visibility appropriate for their role and environment."

Complete ALM Solution

TechExcel DevSuite assures that all knowledge, from feature requests to design diagrams to resource planning, can be shared across the various phases of the development lifecycle. Products in the suite include:

--  KnowledgeWise -- Both the functional system to easily and efficiently
    collect, organize and refine informal ideas gathered from a wide variety of
    sources, such as internal ideas, feature requests, customer feedback,
    marketing requirements, and more into a centralized repository, as well as
    the underlying knowledge engine that supports the entire suite of products.
    Through this common set of knowledge access points, product teams -- from
    executive management through to delivery management -- has the visibility
    and access points appropriate for their environment and role.
--  DevPlan -- Manages the transformation of concepts into formal
    strategic plans.  Boasting an array of innovative features, DevPlan offers
    an intuitive planning hierarchy to formalize scope and optimize resource
    usage, team-based planning and calendaring capabilities. These features
    enable complete control over all product development projects from design
    planning to implementation and enables increased team efficiency and
    collaboration.
--  DevTrack -- Building on the strategic vision, deliverables and
    milestones of DevPlan, DevTrack manages the implementation process.
    DevTrack powerfully, yet flexibly coordinates workflow, notification,
    escalation, routing, version control, activity tracking, QA testing, multi-
    release management and much more.  For example, once an area of development
    is ready for implementation, DevTrack ensures that teams execute their
    tasks within the context of DevPlan's project breakdown structure.  Designs
    and specifications are easily viewable by the DevTrack user so that no work
    is performed without an approved concept driving it; managers can also
    quickly identify areas that require design and schedule brainstorming
    sessions, or presentations of completed designs, in order to refine their
    vision.
--  DevTest -- DevTest helps QA teams manage every aspect of their testing
    process, from team management to test planning and analysis.  Teams can
    create and manage release and test cycles, plan and assign tasks, execute
    test coverage, and submit product defects, all in a single application.
    The product manages functional regression testing, performance testing, and
    usability testing; what's more, each test case template is linked to a
    specific DevPlan feature so the test case owner has direct visibility to
    all feature-related knowledge.
    

"One of the most telling ALM Mega-trends is the shift from ALM as a tactical set of tools to a strategic solution for today's agile and distributed enterprises," Zhou said. "TechExcel DevSuite's best practice, knowledge-centric approach gives managers and designers a framework to efficiently communicate their ideas. It also helps them leverage those ideas in order to drive projects to successful completion."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
