Accurev enables GIT

by Thomas Murphy  |  January 31, 2012  |  2 Comments

DVCS has become a popular trend in agile development with many open source projects making use of GIT and Mercurial and other vendors offering DVCS like function (see Hype Cycle for Application Development, 2011) but they are still a bit too on the edge for most enterprise use.  Concerns about security, a still emerging toolset for understanding revision history and ties to other existing tools are among the concerns.  Accurev announced today support for using GIT as a backend for its SCM product.  This will enable a much greater number of organizations to utilize the distributed development abilities of a DVCS while also having their enterprise SCCM governance needs met.  This should also enable a broader number of users to tie GIT into their ALM systems.
