Ignite LightSpeed: The Making Of..

It all started when Ignite, which specializes in offshore development, looked for an open-source tool that provides an end-to-end solution for distributed Agile development. While there are many good open source Agile tool, they all focus on the Agile approach without taking into consideration adaptations to the distributed nature of offshore software development.

Overtime, with the rising needs of Ignite’s distributed teams of was time to create a designated agile solution. Ignite’s R&D experts crafted, integrated, bundled and customized a collection of leading open-source and Agile framework to create a premium open-source, Agile delivery framework especially designed for distributed development.



At the beginning Ignite LightSpeed served our geographically distributed projects, leveraging teams located in 4 continents and 7 time zones to collaboration and develop a single product. Due to the increasing demand among customers to utilize this framework for their internal R&D needs, launching Ignite LightSpeed Cloud-Sourced Agile Delivery Platform seemed like the right move.
The LightSpeed Platform takes the LightSpeed framework a major step further in the PLM evolution: Placing its capabilities on the cloud, with seamless scaling, hight-availability and a friendly web interface.
The LightSpeed framework is released back to the open source community under the GPL license for the benefit of every distributed development team.

Cost-Efficiency Guaranteed!
