Return on Investment

  • Apache Subversion was easy to install and configure, and requires little maintenance.
  • We have had a few instances where the code repository has become corrupted and repairing this situation requires significant time and is frustrating.
  • It has a relatively easy learning curve so new users require little training and can be productive very early.

  • Improved time to market for our software releases - merging code from multiple developers and finding the conflicts faster really helps.
  • Added visibility into all changes in the project. Provided the developer adds some notes on each check-in you will be able to tell the history of features added to the project in time.
  • Allowed us to do collaborative work on the same source code. Previously we were using Visual Source Safe which was not providing this.

Return on Investment

  • It allowed us to deliver the right files to our customer without "clobbering" previous releases, making for a far more satisfied customer.
  • It allowed our developers to work on two releases in parallel (plus an occasional third, for emergency fixes).
  • With some simple hooks, it allowed us to set up a system where code was was automatically deployed to test servers as soon as developers committed it, making testing easier. This was made easier by virtue of being a ColdFusion project, which requires no compilation. However, that is possible for compiled code with a continuous integration system like Jenkins.

Return on Investment

  • I cannot speak on ROI but Apache Subversion is definitely the best version control tool for a project of any size. It serves the user's purpose in a complete satisfactory way.
  • As it is open source, there is no need to spend any amount on it, which makes it an even more easier choice.
  • The most negative impact Apache Subversion can have on you is that you will not want to use any other version control tool after using it.

  • Subversion helps us feel secure in maintaining access to all of our product code, both current and historical.
  • Being free and open source makes it an even better "investment".

Return on Investment

  • Compared to the much more expensive Microsoft Team Foundation Server, I have found Subversion to be a much more flexible and efficient solution for large teams to work on a codebase.
  • While it's not as GUI intensive for document storage as solutions like Box, I feel that once users get over the learning curve, it could be an excellent way to share corporate documents on user's machines if a more traditional file server is not an option.
  • Of course, free software doesn't mean there is no cost or investment, but when using third-party hosting with subversion, the maintenance costs become negligible.
