Today Collabnet announced the acquisition of Agile PPM vendor Danube. As an Agile PPM vendor Danube are farmous for their support for Scrum, with their offerings ScrumWorks and ScrumWorks Pro. With this acquisition, Collabnet has taken a significant step in merging the disciplines of Agile project and portfolio management with ALM. Collabnet has traditionally stayed away from supporting any one-process model, describing themselves as process agnostics. This started to change at the end of 2009 with the TeamForge 5.3 release, which provided simple support for Agile projects. Now with the purchase of Danube Collabnet will continue to extend their support for Agile projects. So, why should Application development professionals care?
This acquisition is another proof point for the convergence of the Agile demand management and the ALM marked segments. When you factor in recent announcement like the Accurev/Rally/Urban Code alliance and the direction that new releases of ALM tools like IBM Rational Team Concert and Microsoft Team Foundation Server are taking, it’s clear that we’re evolving beyond ALM 2.0. But we’ll talk more about that in our soon to be released Forrester Agile Development Tools Management Wave.
