Through its investment, TPG Capital will commit up to USD 500m of equity capital to build CollabNet into a leader for enterprise-focused Agile, DevOps and Value Stream Management success.

TPG Capital and CollabNet management are mapping strategy and execution plans to accelerate the growth of the company's existing portfolio.

The company also plans to aggressively pursue acquisitions in strategic adjacencies that complement Agile planning and delivery, as well as testing, release management, and the emerging market for VSM.

CollabNet's Value Stream Infrastructure includes VersionOne for enterprise Agile planning and management, VS for connected workflows and visibility throughout the entire delivery value stream, and TeamForge for enterprise-scale source code management and application lifecycle management.
CollabNet also recently introduced Ossum, a SaaS DevOps offering that integrates and streamlines software development from idea to release.
