PureCM Now Supporting SQL Server with the Latest Release of its Version Control Solution
Data Storage options for the PureCM Change and Configuration Management
solution now include SQL Server, SQLite and its native database
29 July 2010 - PureCM, the configuration management specialist, today announced a major new release of its core SCM solution, PureCM 2010-1 SQL Server. This move to support market-leading RDBMS systems brings proven scalability and database management capabilities to software development teams.
"We're excited to add SQL Server to our range of supported databases to satisfy customer feedback" said Mike Shepherd, Technical Consultant at PureCM. "Being able to deploy PureCM with SQL Server allows companies to leverage their existing expertise and infrastructure, making it much easier to manage scalability, backup, reporting or high-availability requirements."
Use of existing resources and near-zero administration
The choice between SQL Server and SQLite also allows development teams to make the most of their current resources. Teams with dedicated DB administrators can leverage their expertise, while smaller teams might prefer the free and embedded SQLite backend with minimal administrative overhead.
Further enhancements in this release include:
Improved progress reporting. Thanks to the full task tracking and configuration management capabilities, PureCM Professional allows for real-time status reporting on project progress. Additional reports like task burndown or tasks per developer are now available to development managers to get additional insight into team velocity and developer availability.
New "released tasks" finder. Development or Release Managers can now quickly find all releases that included a specific task, such as a bug fix. Especially in environments with components shared between projects or multiple parallel (custom) versions, this feature improves transparency and saves valuable time by providing this information on a simple mouse click.
Facilitated merging and sharing administration. Development managers now get merging and shared component wizards from the Projects view. The merging wizard allows for user-friendly and visual merging directly between branches, while the component manager simplifies setting up shared folders between projects.
This latest version builds on the integration and automation features introduced earlier this year, and includes many new features that allow development teams to adopt agile practices where and when it most suits their needs. PureCM doesn't dictate the way that developers should work, it aims at letting developers and teams get on with their jobs seamlessly and unobtrusively, helping to maximise their productivity.
Available in two editions
PureCM 2010-1 is available in two editions: PureCM Professional and PureCM Standard. Both editions include the proven version control core and integration with Visual Studio and Eclipse, giving users a lightweight yet highly scalable solution. PureCM Professional adds integrated work item tracking, merge automation and reporting to provide users with an end-to-end solution. A free trial of PureCM 2010-1 SQL Server is available from: http://www.purecm.com/downloads.php
