" solutions are easy to implement quickly and they are now the focal point of all of our collaborative global development and delivery efforts. Choosing TeamForge has proven to be one of the best business decisions we've made." Mike Lemke Director of Engineering Operations QNX Software Systems WORLD CLASS CUSTOM SOFTWARE ENGINEERING The original goal for QNX was to create a collaborative and highly responsive community with users and customers. All stakeholders were to gain early access to products and source code to facilitate rapid prototyping and more Agile, iterative product delivery. The solution needed to enable highly secure collaboration with partners and selected customers. With many public and private development projects, and multiple daily builds accessed by a wide base of developers, QNX needed a scalable way to publish and deliver software binaries and underlying source code. The company required a highly interactive and collaborative development and continuous delivery environment. Sophisticated permission and access controls also were critical, to support both internal and external users. "Our customers are very technical people, and the key initiative we had in mind was to give these outside developers early access to our products and our source code, and exchange ideas through forums, wikis and other collaborative tools to work faster and more efficiently," said Jim Plantinga, Manager of Information Technology Services for QNX.
