Perforce Software Offers On Demand Version

Aug 23, 2012

Perforce Software and Assembla announce the availability of an on demand version of Perforce Software Version Management that is integrated with team tools from Assembla. 

Perforce on Demand, which combines enterprise-grade versioning with collaboration tools from Assembla, allows development teams to work together more effectively and accelerate Agile projects. The software, which is hosted by Assembla, is free for up to 20 users on Assembla’s website.

According to the announcement, Perforce on Demand allows users to get a new depot in seconds, with triple-redundant backup. They can immediately invite other colleagues by email and don’t need to wait for an administrator to authorize or configure repositories or users.

The software provides an activity stream that shows code commits and user activities. Code review and social coding features help distributed teams test, review, and merge code into frequent releases. Activity streams, code reviews, and merge requests can help Agile teams release improvements continuously.
