About FishEye and Crucible
FishEye and Crucible make distributed software development easier by making information more accessible and reinforcing workflow. FishEye opens up source code repository helping developers make sense of information that is not typically easy to extract, comprehend or keep updated. Crucible makes it easy for development teams to review code changes, make comments and record outcomes in an efficient, distributed and process-neutral way. Developers can perform code reviews independently, making it an excellent tool for distributed development teams, especially where outsourcing or offshoring is involved.
FishEye and Crucible were originally developed by Cenqua, which was acquired by Atlassian in August 2007. Nearly 200 organizations rely on Crucible for efficient code review and over 1200 use FishEye to monitor, search and analyze their source code repository. Customers include BP, DaimlerChrysler, GE, NEC, Pfizer, and Sony. Both are competitively priced, making the software affordable for both small businesses and the world's largest enterprises. Pricing starts at $1,200 per license. For more information,
