Subversion Industry Survey 2013


Published on …

In May 2012, CollabNet conducted a survey of more than 1,300 software developers and administrators on how the Apache Subversion® (SVN) source code management (SCM) tool is being utilized within ALM environments. Key findings show growing demand for cloud-based support services, including remote back-up, and an increase in hybrid SCM strategies that include parallel usage of Subversion and Git.
