Serena Software Inc. on Monday announced an update to its TeamTrack 6 enterprise change management software featuring a real-time management dashboard portal and a role-based interface.
TeamTrack provides process management for changing applications. It functions with the company's ChangeMan system, which controls source code. Serena's enterprise change management platform is intended to help users align business and IT processes.
The management dashboard portal in Version 6 provides visibility into the application development lifecycle, enabling executives, managers, and users to obtain information on mission-critical applications.
A role-based interface is intended to filter lifecycle information based on a user's role and responsibilities within an organization.
"The difference (between Version 6 and previous releases) is now it's much easier to find information in the system based on our role in the (organization)," said John Keller, product manager at Serena.
Configurable workflows in Version 6, accessible from a browser, provide a variety of business processes that can be easily configured and enforce existing processes, according to Serena.
Also new in Version 6 is the addition of IBM Corp. DB2 Universal Database as an underlying data management platform for storing information within TeamTrack. Oracle Corp.'s Oracle and Microsoft Corp.'s SQL Server databases were supported previously.
TeamTrack 6 is the first product to be delivered under the Serena Application Framework for Enterprises (SAFE), a framework for application lifecycle management and process-to-process integration. SAFE was announced in September.
TeamTrack 6 will ship later in November. A 25-user configuration will be priced at US$30,000.
