Catalyst Systems Corp. has announced the availability of the latest version of Openmake, the advanced solution for centralizing and controlling application lifecycle processes from source control management through build, testing and deployment without the need for writing highly customised application lifecycle management (ALM) scripts.

Openmake introduces a wide range of ALM adaptors, simplifying the process of defining a standardised ALM workflow. Openmake ALM adaptors allow organisations to define a standardised ALM process using a variety of ALM tools supported by diverse ALM vendors.

According to Jim Duggan, research vice president at Gartner "Software that easily bridges diverse application lifecycle management tools will become increasingly important as organisations strive to meet IT compliance requirements by creating a repeatable development process."

Included in the latest release of Openmake is interoperability with the Perforce Software Configuration Management solution as well as deployment adaptors supporting CA's Software Delivery.

Openmake's re-usable ALM framework allows developers to design re-usable ALM processes, minimising the need for highly customised ad hoc ALM scripts such as Ant/XML scripts, Make Scripts, Check-in/Check-out scripts and deployment scripts. This re-use substantially reduces development costs, improves quality and mitigates the risk associated with manually-maintained, non re-usable ad hoc processes.

Openmake adds Microsoft Visual Studio .Net 2005 to the list of supported development tools. Release provides Visual Studio .Net 2005 dependency mining and reporting, which are particularly helpful for tracking and managing large .Net-based applications. Release also provides added security features including LDAP support for organisations standardising their security policies.

This latest version is available immediately, with prices starting at Rs.2,310.50 ($50) for lifecycle automation-only seats to Rs.16,173.50 ($350) for full build automation seats.
