Version Control & Change Management

Tracks the who, what, when, and why of changes; process rules can be linked to ensure quality and seamless change management.

Release Management

Release conditions are easy to set up; release definitions are archived and can be reconstructed in the future; process rules can be linked to release conditions to enforce required control.

The Razor tools may be used collectively as a tool suite or independently. The tools share a common database. The database is composed of one or more issues groups, one or more file-control groups, and a project group. File and thread groups are linked, with a single project group existing for all file/thread pairs in the database. Issues can be related to version control and thread activity, or can be used in a standalone fashion. Therefore, it is envisioned that one approach for interfacing the activity stored by Razor with third party tools would be to utilize the issue control groups for "defect" tracking; version control groups for "versioning" and threads control groups for "release" or "baseline".
