Q: What is SourceForge Enterprise Edition?

Q: What are the key problems addressed by SourceForge?
Large IT organizations with distributed teams and offshore service providers face many challenges: poor management visibility of project status and progress, inadequate collaboration and communication between teams, coordination difficulties, mismatched tools and processes, difficulties meeting regulatory requirements, and managing and reusing IP assets. SourceForge provides a common development environment with integrated tools and services to unify teams and address these issues. Learn more here »

Q: How does SourceForge work with my existing tools and processes?
As a web-based application, SourceForge integrates with many of your existing tools. SourceForge has built-in integrations with popular desktop productivity tools such as Microsoft® Project® and Microsoft® Office, as well as software configuration management (SCM) tools such as CVS, Subversion, and IBM Rational® ClearCase®. SourceForge integrates with and enhances existing tools investments with minimal disruption.

SourceForge supports improved processes but does not force teams to comply with rigid process methodologies. SourceForge is designed to adapt to the way your teams work and to help support more mature software development processes, such as SW-CMM® Levels 2 and 3, should they be desired Learn more here »

Q: Is SourceForge limited to particular target platforms or programming languages?
No. SourceForge is open in that it works with virtually any programming language, document type, or target application platform. Regardless of programming language (C/C++, Java, C#, Perl, COBOL, etc.) or target application platform (J2EE, Microsoft® .NET, IBM® WebSphere®, BEA® WebLogic, Linux®, Windows®, Mac OS®, etc.), SourceForge enables you to standardize on a common platform for both in-house teams and external service providers.

Q: How does SourceForge Enterprise Edition differ from SourceForge.net?
SourceForge.net is a publicly accessible website that serves as the global nexus for the worldwide Open Source community. SourceForge.net is completely open and provides free services to Open Source developers. SourceForge Enterprise Edition is based on the same technology principles as SourceForge.net but has been architected and built explicitly for enterprise integration, extensibility, security and ease-of-use. SourceForge Enterprise Edition provides companies with a secure, centralized, enterprise-grade solution for optimizing distributed development. Learn more here »
