Is that something companies demand? You better believe it. In fact, Genuitec had orders for SDC before it was even a completed project. But why?
There was such a vocal demand in the open source community for management tools that several big brands asked Genuitec to create SDC so they could best manage and deliver Eclipse and its packages inside their company firewall. They needed their development teams locked-down and standardized on the right tools and version number for each software project. This matters because enough times during the lifecycle of a project(s) companies are seeing their "builds broken" and their software over-budget and late to market because of poor tools management. So SDC was born to tackle these expensive problems (SDC is not expensive, by the way).
In short, SDC is ready out-of-the box and we're showing it off at this year's premier Eclipse event, EclipseCon.
Here are some features to give you an idea of what SDC can do for you:
- Manage tools behind the enterprise firewall in a “private cloud”
- “Lock down” Eclipse-based tool stacks with one click
- Generate full, customized installers for tool stacks
- Easy usage reporting on tools and open source compliance
- Manage multiple versions of software simultaneously
- Manage Eclipse, MyEclipse or both at once
If you're in the Washington DC/Virginia area, come by EclipseCon to say "hi." If you mention this blog post to our on-site marketing team we'll buy you a beer. At one of the receptions. :)
