Borland Rolls Out 'Personalized' IT Governance Solution

As if to reinforce its message that it is now an application lifecycle firm, Borland Software announced this week it is shipping a new IT governance solution.

The company announced last week that it will attempt to sell off its development tools unit in order to focus more closely on application lifecycle management tools.

As part of that initiative, Borland's IT Management and Governance (ITM&G) solution combines Borland's process improvement and skills training services with a new version of Borland Tempo collaborative IT management and governance system.

Tempo provides capabilities to implement six key IT management and governance processes, including demand management, portfolio management, project and program management, as well as resource, financial and asset management.

The idea is to deliver personalized IT management and governance solutions designed to help IT organizations achieve better business alignment, and increase visibility and control over IT projects and investments, Cupertino, Calif.-based Borland said in a statement. Additionally, it is meant to enable more effective resource usage and to manage regulatory compliance.

Borland plans to release several solutions this year directed at core areas for achieving what the company calls "software delivery optimization." Besides ITM&G, Borland is working on solutions for requirements definition and management, lifecycle quality management, and change management, the company's statement said.

Each Borland solution will include a tailored combination of team training, process improvement services and application lifecycle management technology. In addition, each solution will be designed and implemented by a Borland solution architect so that it is personalized to fit each customer's specific needs.
