Cary, North Carolina, March 24, 2005 – Intland Software, the leading provider of Web-based collaboration and change management solutions for distributed software development teams, today announced that the CodeBeamer collaborative development platform has won a coveted Productivity Award in the 15th Annual Software Development Jolt Awards. CodeBeamer won the award in the highly competitive Change and Configuration Management Tools category.

Jolt Product Excellence and Productivity Awards are presented annually to products, books and websites that have “jolted” the industry by helping to create faster, easier and more efficient software. The finalists in each category were selected in January and the award winners announced last week by the editors of Software Development magazine. “This has been an exciting and challenging year of Jolt judging,” says Rosalyn Lum, the magazine’s technical editor. “Every year, the competition gets tougher. Not only did we rename several categories and add a new category in midstream, we had an unprecedented number of nominations.”

"It is an honor for Intland to have been selected to receive this prestigious award especially in face of many established competitors”, stated Dan Snider, director of North American operations, Intland Software. “We believe this achievement is a testament to the quality and effectiveness of CodeBeamer in solving many of today’s software development problems. We have focused our solution on tightly integrating collaboration with change management, across the lifecycle, to address the challenges now facing distributed development teams. The result is real-time visibility, availability and control of all assets; these are essential requirements for increasing team productivity and reducing costs”. Continued Snider, “The Jolt Awards’ panel has a reputation for recognizing innovative solutions; we are very excited that our technology and direction has met with the panel’s criteria for award selection”.

Ease of implementation and usability are major features of CodeBeamer, enabling customers to achieve a rapid return on their investment. The standards-based J2EE server can be installed on any operating system, is highly configurable to support organizational processes and easily integrated with existing software development tools. In addition to providing critical software change management capabilities, the product captures the invaluable intellectual capital generated and transferred in development related communications. CodeBeamer uniquely solves the escalating problem of software development by enabling team members to easily share technical, managerial and quality information.

The Jolt Award ceremony was held on the evening of March 16, 2005 at the SD West Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, California. For more information on the awards and the full list of winners please visit:
