Krugle, the code search engine for developers, announced last week that their latest product, Krugle Enterprise, is in selective beta. Enterprise customers that maintain large source code bases behind the firewall can benefit from Krugle Enterprise to help them improve their access to existing code and information about that code to speed the development process.
Krugle Enterprise is provided by Krugle in as an appliance, to allow for rapid and error-free installation and configuration. The business model is a subscription model, with a low entry price, instead of the large up front price often associated with the appliance business models.
According to Laura Merling, Krugle's VP of marketing, the company already has beta customers signed up for using the product. Two of these beta customers are named in the Krugle press release, and they are Persistent Systems, and Science Applications International Corporation. Target markets for the company include large software development companies, financial services companies, and other companies that maintain a sizable amount of code behind the firewall.
According to Ms. Merling, the product will be fully released by the end of the Summer.
