Electric Cloud, a provider of software production management solutions, has just released a new edition of ElectricCommander targeted to developers at small and midsize businesses.
The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company was scheduled to unveil ElectricCommander Workgroup Edition today at the JavaOne and Oracle Develop 2010 conferences in San Francisco.
ECWE helps SMB development teams automate and streamline their software-development efforts, said Usman Muzaffar, the company's vice president of product management. "It's designed to completely put its arms around the build-test-deploy process," he said, comparing the solution to a start-to-finish factory assembly line. "It can help integrate and automate all the different parts of the software workflow process."
Although ECWE edition uses the same underlying infrastructure as the enterprise edition, it's targeted to organizations with as few as five to 10 developers, but can scale up as companies grow, Muzaffar said.
He described ECWE as an attractive alternative for smaller organizations that typically rely on either homegrown systems or open-source or off-the-shelf commercial tools.
"That sort of choice forces developers out of working in the ways they want to work," he said. "Because Electric Commander has all the plumbing in place but has a flexible way of exposing it, you can make exactly the workflow that you want" in a variety of development environments.
