In many ways 2013 was our best year ever. For starters, we spent more time with our customers to better understand their needs and, in return, got valuable feedback across our product portfolio. On the product side, it was certainly our busiest year. Not only did we launch several new products in 2013, we also made many significant improvements to our core versioning engine and clients.
Let’s start by looking at the products we unveiled last year.

For many of us, the New Year brings with it a set of resolutions: those promises we make to ourselves at the start of every year in the hopes of making the new year better than the last. The standards like eating less and saving more are well worn, so here are a few potential resolutions for those of us in the software world.Posted In:

While there are many reasons the initial launch of the HealthCare.gov website didn’t go as well as hoped, I can’t resist a chuckle at the irony of the type of contract used in commissioning the website. It was an “IDIQ,” meaning “Indefinite Delivery and Indefinite Quantity” of products or services during a fixed period of time. This usually protects the federal government from having to specify precise quantities of services they’ll require during a contract period, but I guess in this case it meant that the delivery of the complete product itself was indefinite.
Kidding aside, the lesson here – and a key message for us in 2014 – is that Continuous Delivery should be the new normal for software development.Posted In:

As the end of 2013 approaches like most companies we reflect on the year and how well we achieved our desired results. When it comes to giving back to our community, Perforce did quite well! And this makes us proud. This year resulted in 275 organizations receiving donations totalling $350,000. We also hosted a fundraiser right here at the Perfortress and are once again sponsoring The Little Ice Rink.Posted In:
