World Economic Forum Names CollabNet a 2010 Technology Pioneer

CollabNet Transforms Software Development by Enabling Agile, Collaborative, and Distributed Project Teams

BRISBANE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/09 -- CollabNet, the leader in distributed application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, announced today that the World Economic Forum has named CollabNet to the 2010 class of Technology Pioneers. According to the World Economic Forum, the companies selected as this year's Technology Pioneers represent the most innovative companies from around the globe that will have a critical impact on the future of business and society. CollabNet and the other Technology Pioneers will join the wider World Economic Forum community for the first time this January during the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2010 in Davos, Switzerland. More information about CollabNet and its flagship products, CollabNet TeamForge and CollabNet Subversion, is available at www.collab.net.

The identification of the Technology Pioneer companies was the result of a vigorous selection process for which the Forum received more than 300 applications from around the world. Fifty-eight global technology experts evaluated the applications. The 2010 class covers four continents, with 18 of the 26 companies hailing from the United States and the rest from Brazil, Germany, India, Israel, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom.

To be selected as a Technology Pioneer, a company must be involved in the development of a life-changing technology innovation and have the potential for long-term impact on business and society. In addition, it must demonstrate visionary leadership and show all the signs of a long-standing and sustainable market leader -- and its technology must be proven.

"We were truly impressed with the quality, quantity, and diversity of the applicants this year, thereby making the selection process the most difficult to date. I would like to congratulate the Technology Pioneers Class of 2010," said Kevin E. Comolli, managing general partner, Accel Partners, a partner of and advisor to the World Economic Forum's Technology Pioneers Program. "These companies can be very proud of receiving such a respected and coveted distinction."

"CollabNet products transform the way agile, collaborative, and distributed project teams develop software, increasing productivity, decreasing time-to-innovation, and reducing infrastructure costs by leveraging the cloud," said Bill Portelli, chief executive officer, CollabNet. "We're honored that the World Economic Forum has recognized the pioneering work we're doing and our success to date. Innovation at CollabNet will continue to drive our customers' innovation in 2010 and beyond."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
