What is CCC/Harvest?

Post by Anuj Dhawan » Wed May 29, 2013 8:33 pm

A software configuration management (SCM) system for client/server environments from Computer Associates (CA). On the server, it runs on all major Unix platforms and Windows NT. Windows, OS/2 and Unix are supported on the client. The product was originally developed by Platinum Technology, which was acquired by CA in 1999.

This is now known as CA Software Change Manager. The first CCC (acronym for 'Change and Configuration Control') product was released in the early 70s and was designed as a project for a Defense Department contractor in Santa Barbara CA. (The company at the time was Hughes Aircraft, now Santa Barbara Research Center for Raytheon.) It became the first commercially available CM tool.
CCC was designed to manage all the components that went into an aircraft engine, and seeing as the same engine was used by both the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy (for the F-14 Tomcat and F-15 Eagle) it required robust and reliable parallel development. The first version of CCC/Harvest was commercially developed by Softool Corporation, a CM-focused software company founded in 1977 in Goleta, CA. Other CCC tools included CCC/Manager, CCC/DM Turnkey and CCC/QuickTrak.

Softool was acquired in late 1995 by Platinum Technology, which was later acquired in May 1999 by Computer Associates (now known as CA Technologies) who added CCC/Harvest to their AllFusion suite. In 2002, the 'CCC' part of the name was dropped, and 'Change Manager' was added so it became known as AllFusion Harvest Change Manager. Later this was changed to just CA Harvest Change Manager. On October 7, 2008, the 'Harvest' part of the name was dropped and changed to 'Software' and it is now known as CA Software Change Manager.
