Lexington, Massachusetts-based configuration management software house, Atria Software Inc, is making the natural leap to change request management, offering ClearTrack for tracking defects and enhancement requests through the software lifecycle. ClearTrack is dervied from Silicon Graphics Inc’s Developers’ Magic Tracker, which Atria bought from Silicon Graphics for $1.5m. It will take a one-time charge of $0.07 a share against third-quarter numbers. ClearTrack is intended for use with Atria’s ClearCase configuration management and version control package, but can be operated stand-alone, or in conjunction with other management packages too. The software ships in the first quarter of next year, priced from $800 on Sun Microsystems Inc, Hewlett-Packard Co and Silicon Graphics Unixes. Windows NT and Windows95 versions will follow. ClearCase/ClearTrack bundles are available from $4,600. Atria claims 21,000 ClearCase licensees at 550 customer sites, most of them under Unix. It is going up against the likes of Softool, Pure and BMC Software Inc and said it will partner for additional technologies, such as quality assurance where it missed the boat when Qualtrak went to Pure Software Inc.
