QAD Partners With Tugboat Software To Offer Software Configuration Management To Its Customers
Roundtable® TSMS Helps QAD Customers Control Their Entire Software Lifecycle
Tugboat’s Roundtable TSMS helps QAD customers deliver enhancements to QAD Enterprise Applications in shorter development and deployment cycles, while also managing the cost, quality and compliance of their customizations over the entire application lifecycle. Additionally, customers are better able to audit and demonstrate control of their internal IT systems, to meet compliance requirements, such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).
“We’re pleased to offer this solution to our customers,” noted Gordon Fleming, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for QAD. “In today’s economy, many manufacturing companies are operating with fewer IT resources. This solution aligns with QAD Enterprise Applications to help our customers focus more on their core business and less on their software.”
Tugboat’s Roundtable SCM solution enables QAD enterprise customers to set a clear, standardized structure for the development and deployment process, maximize efficiencies in this process (with change and impact analysis), and manage each change in the process to ensure compliance with operating procedures.
“We are very excited about this partnership,”
