MENLO PARK, Calif., May 8 /PRNewswire/ — Krugle, Inc., the search engine for developers, today announced a search appliance for enterprise software developers. The new appliance indexes code and presents it in context with other software assets developers manage throughout the application development process.

"As an outsourced software product engineering services firm, we need to be responsive to our clients. Efficiency and time to market are critical to our success. Krugle Enterprise can help our developers do impact analysis or learn a new client's code more quickly which can save our customer time and money," said Srikanth Sundararajan, Chief Operating Officer of Persistent Systems, Pvt. Ltd.

The product is currently in selective beta (http://corp.krugle.com/product). Another of the product's early users is Science Applications International Corporation, a leading provider of scientific, engineering, systems integration and technical services and solutions. According to Krugle, customers can integrate their source code management systems and index key projects within two hours of plugging in the appliance.

Today, the information developers need is hidden in silos across the enterprise, often housed in multiple distributed SCM repositories, corporate wikis or bug databases. Krugle Enterprise indexes the information across those development silos and adds an important contextual element missing in the application development process. The announcement comes at a time open source code is seeing increasing adoption with enterprise developers, creating a need for more powerful tools that allow them to find the code they need quicker. Krugle believes the success of open source software and the proliferation of its underlying code is driving a trend toward search-driven development.

"Development organizations have substantial information challenges, from evaluating the impact of making code changes, to quickly educating new or outsourced developers," said Steve Larsen, co-founder and CEO, Krugle. "Krugle Enterprise gives them that capability. We provide developers and management with fast and easy access to their code and related information which improves the quality and speed of their work."

Krugle Enterprise bundles plug-ins for two of the fastest-growing developer environments, Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio, and provides an API that will enable support for other development environments. The appliance integrates directly with ClearCase, CVS, Perforce and Subversion repositories. With Krugle Enterprise, the company says it will provide integration with any system that supports its Rest API, allowing enterprises to integrate their own information channels.

The company is taking an innovative pricing approach to the Krugle Enterprise appliance. Instead of large, one-time upfront purchase costs, Krugle uses a subscription model with a low entry price. The low-cost subscription pricing model puts enterprise search within easy reach of individual departments in large organizations.

About Krugle, Inc.

Krugle, the code search engine for developers, was founded in 2005 around the idea of contextual search. Krugle's code search engine makes it easy for developers to find the code they need plus the related technical and licensing information to evaluate and use that code. Krugle lets developers save their search information, share it, and get comments and feedback on code. These essential development processes of searching, evaluating and communicating are directly aimed at developers' needs.

Krugle crawls, parses and indexes code found in public and partner repositories. Search results include contextual information from projects, technical web pages, as well as resources such as Safari Books Online. The ability to interactively search, browse and explore code in a meaningful context provides more accurate results and reduces the time required to make good code decisions.

Krugle is headquartered in Menlo Park, Calif. For more information, visit www.krugle.com.
