Borland has struck a landmark deal with EDS for its application lifecycle management software to become the global standard for the outsourcer's software development and delivery infrastructure.

The multimillion-dollar contract is a major blow for IBM/Rational, whose technology Borland will replace. EDS is thought to have tens of thousands of Rational seats worldwide.

Borland will supply EDS with:

  • Requirements management (CaliberRM)
  • Configuration management (StarTeam)
  • Defect and change tracking (StarTeam)
  • Object and class modelling (Together ControlCenter)
  • Memory and profile testing (OptimizeIT)

Neither EDS nor Borland would comment, although the deal was announced internally at both companies.
