Built by Merant, the leader in proven SCM solutions and maker of award-winning PVCS products, the new Professional 8 suite focuses on the unique needs of the contemporary development team: managers, developers, build managers and QA/testing engineers working collaboratively.

Merant helps teams tackle the challenges of increasing development complexity and rising IT time burdens and costs. It's part of a strategy you need to quickly align business applications with changing business missions and operational needs.

Merant Professional's automated change management helps you respond to pressure to reuse digital assets, to demonstrate repeatability and provide traceability and auditability of your company's development, IT and IP assets. Professional enables teams to develop higher quality software, faster, with more efficient use of development resources.

The Merant Professional Suite Includes:

  • Merant Version Manager to organize, manage and protect software assets during the development process. New Merant Version Manager File Server architecture adds server-based security features to prevent unintentional deletes and overwrites.
  • Merant Tracker to capture, manage and communicate software defects, issues and change requests. With this new release Tracker now supports multiple issues and parent/child relationships in defect tracking.
  • All-new Merant Build, leveraging Openmake® technology from Catalyst Systems, brings a whole new set of features and benefits, including automated script generation and remote builds. Upgrade to the new Merant Build Enterprise Edition to support cross-platform builds in heterogeneous environments, including UNIX, Linux, Windows and Java.
Why You Need Merant Professional
Development practices have changed dramatically over the years. They have gone from small, local teams working on relatively straightforward applications, to highly complex applications developed and continually enhanced by large, distributed teams.

Contemporary team development depends on too many contributions, from too many individuals, to be managed with notes, status meetings or the heroic efforts of individuals.

In fact, a recent survey of 400 IT projects from companies of various sizes and industries found that only 28 percent were successful; 49 percent were over budget, took longer than expected or had fewer features or functions than originally promised; and 23 percent failed altogether.*

A comprehensive solution is Merant Professional to mitigate development risks and project failures, and benefit the business bottom line with higher quality applications, developed faster.

Merant Professional enhances productivity and boosts application quality because it automatically versions files, labels them and organizes them as they change during the development process. It prevents unintentional code overwrites, which can result in missed bug fixes or customer-specific change requests. The impact of even a few defects or missed changes can seriously overburden support or bring a mission-critical application to a halt. With Merant Professional, you can stop trouble before it starts.

Merant Professional also enables time-saving parallel development. You don't have to wait for one team or developer to finish a task before others can proceed. Instead of developing sequentially, you develop concurrently - because it's safe and easy to do so. Timelines become more predictable when you don't have to wait. You get to market faster. With fewer errors.

With its platform-independence, scalability, superb flexibility and ease of use, Professional is the most popular choice for:

  • Organizations with dynamic, fast-paced software development projects
  • Project managers requiring rapid start-up of a team-centric SCM solution
  • Distributed teams that need to work from a single, protected asset archive regardless of location or platform
  • Teams that need to adapt quickly to changing projects, while keeping SCM costs low
  • Teams where the project, not an enterprise process, is the primary focus
