Migrate to git from Clearcase, SVN and more
Making sure your developers have the right tools is vitally important. Good tooling enables you to support sensible and sustainable workflows and empowers your developers. Bad tooling fosters bad habits and forces you to implement constant workarounds. Git offers your developers an open source, modern version control system that is readily adaptable to the needs of your organization.
Archaic source control management (SCM) tools like Rational Clearcase, Perforce, Subversion, etc. are burdens that grow more cumbersome every day. Performance issues, maintenance costs and dwindling access to skilled users are mounting problems that can’t be overlooked. It may seem like a complicated task, but migration to Git is an entirely manageable process that introduces many great opportunities for improved productivity.
Why should I migrate to Git?
Git is the prime candidate for SCM migration because:
- It’s fast and scalable
- It offers many automation options
- It encourages the adoption of best practices
- It’s a powerful yet flexible tool that can be configured to suit your desired workflow.
- It’s widely used (StackOverflow Developer Survey, 2015), which makes your recruitment process a lot easier
- It’s free, so you can free up budget that’s currently being spent on expensive licensing
Moving to Git is not an automatic panacea, but it will make it far easier for you to fully embrace Continuous Delivery.
