)-- Sourcesense, the European provider of open source solutions and The Go To Group, Inc. (Go2Group), a leader in the field of Software Production Line Automation (SPLA), today announced a broad technological partnership to extend middleware alternatives into the software development environment. With the combination of Sourcesense's open source expertise and Go2Group's best-practice services, the partnership aims to bring the power and value of open source solutions to customers looking for an option to today's traditional enterprise solutions.
The partnership will include Sourcesense reselling the Go2Group JaM Plugin, Go2Group's best-selling product that provides integration between Atlassian JIRA and HP Quality Center. The Go2Group JaM Plugin is available for evaluation and sale through Sourcesense today.
Go2Group will begin immediate development and support for Sourcesense's Scarlet clustering component to the Terracotta scalable solution. Initial development will include focusing on the installation process and understanding customer demands for features in an updated roadmap and contributing to the development of Scarlet for JIRA 4.0.
Brett Taylor, Go2Group's CEO, said, "We were looking to partner with an exceptional open source firm to leverage our services with valued, market-tested solutions. Our partnership with Sourcesense will bring a truly global, robust set of solutions and services to those firms looking to replace or complement proprietary and enterprise solutions."
