Modern Software Development
Today software defines the customer experience for almost every business and that experience must be available in on every platform and in every format; web, PC, tablet and phone. This puts ever greater strategic importance on developing high quality software quickly and efficiently. RhodeCode Enterprise 3 allows companies to deliver quality software far more quickly and efficiently than ever before by allowing distributed development teams to choose the version control system (VCS), tools and workflows that they are most familiar with. Most source code management systems force developers to choose a single VCS, forcing costly transitions; extensive learning curves and can even hamper recruiting the next generation of developers. Large organizations and those growing rapidly need the flexibility to bridge different systems as they adapt to new technologies, evolve their software development processes, recruit new developer talent and acquire companies with legacy development systems.
RhodeCode Enterprise 3- A Balanced Approach
Enterprises have strong control, compliance and security requirements that are often not found in the open source software market where much of the development is done in the public cloud. RCE3 was developed with these requirements in mind. Project managers have a single web-based view of all projects in the organization irrespective of the VCS that enables highly efficient distributed code development and collaboration. In addition, compliance and security is assured via integrated code review stored next to the code, access protection through extensive multi-hierarchical permission management, always-on SSL, Active Directory / LDAP support, and code freezes and extensive change logs for auditing purposes.
RhodeCode was founded in 2013 by Sebastian Kreutzberger and Marcin Kuzminski to meet the needs of large and growing organizations for a more efficient and secure way to manage distributed software development. RhodeCode offers the most comprehensive modern source code management solution in the industry combining a high degree of flexibility with the controls and security businesses require. Today, RhodeCode has a user base of tens of thousands world-wide and is used by some of the largest companies, governments and organizations like Cisco, Nintendo, CA Technologies, the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Navy. RhodeCode is headquartered in Palo Alto, California with R&D facilities in Berlin, Germany. For more information visit https://rhodecode.com
