November 7, 2006 – TechExcel, Inc., the leading provider of knowledge-centric Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) software solutions, today announced it has expanded its Asian presence in response to a sizable increase in demand for its unique, knowledge-centric Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) products.

Since then the company, through only limited marketing efforts, has experienced strong interest in its products. Of greatest immediate interest to software companies is DevTrack, TechExcel’s market-leading product for project and defect tracking.

TechExcel Introduces DevSuite Application Lifecycle Management Platform

Innovative, Knowledge-Based Approach Helps Even Far-Flung Development Teams focus on strategic goals of product design, project planning, development and testing by providing a collaborative and “knowledge-centric” environment.

LAFAYETTE, CALIF. October 25, 2006 – TechExcel, Inc., the leading provider of knowledge-centric Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) software solutions, today announced the launch of DevSuite, the company’s integrated, knowledge-centric ALM suite. By eliminating the silos of knowledge that exist between different teams and in different locales, DevSuite helps enterprises dramatically transform their development processes, increasing both the efficiency and overall quality of their end products.

Traditional approaches to ALM prescribe that every phase of software development – from product concept to strategy, planning to implementation, and finally to verification and delivery – rely on separate tools and processes. TechExcel DevSuite, by contrast, is built around the best-practices insight that knowledge is central to any product development initiative. This strategy helps enterprises communicate better and reduce their cycle times, allowing the right products for the right markets to be developed in the shortest possible time.

“As competition increases, development teams are under increasing pressure to deliver more sophisticated products in collapsing timeframes. DevSuite exists to make these challenges possible,” said Tieren Zhou, CEO and Chief Software Architect at TechExcel. “DevSuite covers all aspects of best practice integrated Application Lifecycle Management. It was conceived, designed and implemented using a knowledge-centric architecture, with functional views into the various lifecycle phases. Teams and team members alike now have the knowledge visibility appropriate for their role and environment.”

Complete ALM Solution

TechExcel DevSuite assures that all knowledge, from feature requests to design diagrams to resource planning, can be shared across the various phases of the development lifecycle. Products in the suite include:
