New OpenMake upgrade manages application reuse and lifecycle

Catalyst Systems Corp. has a new version of its Openmake, extending its capabilities beyond source control management through build, testing and deployment without the need for writing highly customized ALM (application lifecycle management) scripts.

Openmake introduces a wide range of ALM adaptors, simplifying the process of defining a standardized ALM workflow. Openmake ALM adaptors allow organizations to define a standardized ALM process using a variety of ALM tools supported by diverse ALM vendors.

Included in the latest release of Openmake is interoperability with the Perforce Software Configuration Management solution as well as deployment adaptors supporting CA's Software Delivery.

According to Tracy Ragan, CEO, Catalyst Systems, Openmake re-usable ALM framework allows developers to design re-usable ALM processes, minimizing the need for highly customized ad hoc ALM scripts such as Ant/XML scripts, Make Scripts, Check-in/Check-out scripts and deployment scripts. This re-use substantially reduces development costs, improves quality and mitigates the risk associated with manually-maintained, non re-usable ad hoc processes.

Openmake also adds Microsoft .Net 2005 to the list of supported development tools, including .Net 2005 dependency mining and reporting, which are particularly helpful for tracking and managing large .Net-based applications. Release also provides added security features including LDAP support for organizations standardizing their security policies.

Openmake is available immediately, with prices starting at $50 USD for lifecycle automation-only seats to $350 USD for full build automation seats.
