All the legal stuff is now made, and so we are proud to announce officially that Objet Direct has acquired all the activities around Codendi.
This acquisition signs years of fruitful relations between Objet Direct and Xerox.
After helping, working with Xerox to Codendi development, Objet Direct decides in 2007 to use it to manage its projects.
In 2009, Objet Direct and Xerox participate together to the project Coclico, that aimed to give significant enhancement to collaborative platforms for software development.
In 2011 with the completion of the project Coclico, Xerox wants to focus in the areas related to its activities in Business Process Outsourcing. Xerox decides to transfer the Codendi activities to a partner, and chooses Objet Direct as the best candidate to continue to develop and promote Codendi all over the world.

Last Tuesday, February 1st, we had the Coclico plenary meeting. The time for everyone on the project to get together and discuss how things are progressing, what should be done next, what is blocking, how to address special issues …
Generally speaking everyone felt the need for establishing more frequent meetings, especially to ascertain and foster technical progress.We decided to have technical meetings, from now on, in between project general meetings. The next one is scheduled to be on March 16th.
Two demos were presented.
ITS representative Olivier Berger showed his tracker importer, which can import trackers (data and metadata) previously exported from FusionForge into FusionForge itself.
Thibault Parmentier and Séverine Rambaud, from Objet Direct, presented a beautiful Scrum Dashboard plugin, which will enrich the Codendi offer on agility.
Things are progressing, and though much work is still to be completed, all stakeholders are preparing the deliverables for the final presentation, which is scheduled for the end of September
That’ all folks !
One day before the 2010 Open World Forum, Coclico partners had a meeting to track the state of the project. As always, we heard a lot about interoperability, convergence, methodologies (Agile), etc.
Basically, Codendi team is working on several topics, like for instance:
- Interoperability and data exchange in trackers (tracker export/import feature)
- Agile project management (providing agile project templates, agile trackers for managing the Product Backlog). We are working closely with Objet Direct on this subject.
- Index and full text search, in collaboration with CELI (also Coclico partners).
