This paper published by Borland Software describes how todays developers face a series of choices when deciding how to build enterprise applications. This includes the choice of operating platform, database server, middleware architecture and much more besides. An array of development solutions is available from a range of different vendors. However, because vendors often have vested interests in their own products, each solution might be appropriate only for a particular combination of platform, database, and middleware architecture.
Software systems are the lifeblood of business. Software development organizations use Merant PVCS Version Manager or Microsoft Visual SourceSafe to support their software configuration management (SCM) needs. Migrating from one of these SCM solutions to a more comprehensive and complete change management product could cause disruption and violate well-established corporate standards. Star Team supports the key development disciplines and workflows needed to implement a complete change management process, from the initial request through development and deployment. Star Team provides this unification, enabling all participants in the process to follow the same workflows and create the traceability, focus, and visibility required.
Leading enterprises are taking a best-of-breed yet standards-based approach to software development. Being able to use the most appropriate technology for any given task, rather than being ""Locked in"" to a specific software vendor or platform, enables these organizations to maximize both new and existing investments in resources and technology to achieve greater cost savings and operational efficiencies. Increasingly, the three dominant technology platforms - the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform, the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), and the Microsoft .NET Framework - are used side-by-side within an enterprise.
This paper published by Borland Software, tells about how Borland C Builder fulfills the Development phase of the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) process and integrates with additional ALM tools for accelerating the application lifecycle. These ALM tools focus on the Define, Design, Develop, Test, Deploy, and Manage phases of the application lifecycle, offering a comprehensive and flexible solution to any development process. These tools make the development experience faster and more productive through integration and interoperability.
This paper published by Borland Software explains that enterprises can gain more value from their J2EE infrastructure by adopting Borland performance management processes and tools throughout the Application Lifecycle, achieving lower costs, improved application responsiveness and optimized performance, while speeding development cycles with enhanced IT productivity. Implementing Borland methodologies and tools can deliver a competitive edge and the confidence to run a global business using the emerging Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
