Enterprise collaborative development capability for continuous software delivery

Collaborative development enables collaboration between business, development, and QA organizations -- including contractors and vendors in outsourced projects spread across time zones -- to deliver innovative, quality software continuously. This includes support for polyglot programming and multiplatform development, elaboration of ideas, and creation of user stories complete with cross-team change and lifecycle management. Collaborative development includes the practice of continuous integration, which promotes frequent team integrations and automatic builds. By integrating the system more frequently, typical integration issues are identified earlier when they are easier to fix, and the overall integration effort is reduced via continuous feedback as the project shows constant and demonstrable progress.
