Borland Software has acquired Legadero to improve its software development offering to customers.
The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, will see Borland gain a set of IT project management tools for improving the control of software development projects.
More structured development is the key target when using the tools, and better communication between programmers and system administrators as a result.
The Legadero software provides tools for viewing the status of software development projects, as well as prioritising tasks and managing requests for project changes.
The Legadero products will be re-branded as Borland Tempo and will be integrated with Borland’s existing range of application lifecycle tools.
Borland’s main competitors in the application lifecycle tools market are IBM and Microsoft.
