Network Solutions and McCabe Software “Change” for the Better
OCTOBER 11, 2005 - WARWICK, RI - With over 65% of Fortune 100 companies, along with many other individuals and small, medium and large businesses relying on them, Network Solutions is one of the world’s most trusted technology firms. In business for 25 years, Network Solutions pioneered domain name registration and is a leading provider of Internet services. McCabe Software, Inc. has helped Network Solutions streamline their software configuration management process, enabling them to effortlessly manage their software change for over 100 customer-facing and internal applications.
“I have been using McCabe’s CM solution for over 5 years. It is truly the finest Configuration Management product I have ever used,” says David Platt, Network Solutions’ Lead CM Engineer. “Two CM engineers support over 100 users and a very little amount of time is spent administering the CM system. It basically runs by itself and McCabe’s software is rock solid.”
Network Solutions selected McCabe’s CM tool because of its superior feature set in comparison to other competitive products. Unlike the competition, McCabe’s unique software configuration management solution offers integrated difference technology, which enables the tool to link associated file changes into groups, commonly referred to as change sets (csets). The cset is a collection of associated changes made to one or more files. Members of the development, test, and release teams can select a named cset and migrate it freely: forwards, backwards, and sideways.
Platt and his team have also taken advantage of the McCabe solutions ability to fit within an already established application development lifecycle process. “We have easily modified the standard behavior of [McCabe CM] to do things that make sense in our environment”, said Platt “including file size checks, problem tracking system integration, and integration to a database for metrics."
