Replacing ClearCase: Lessons Learned from Cadence Design Systems

They didn’t think migrating off their legacy version control system would be difficult. They thought it would be impossible.


For Cadence Design Systems, the multinational electronic design automation (EDA) software and engineering services company, moving off ClearCase was an important but daunting goal.


They knew a modern, flexible system would foster innovation and help them keep up with rapidly evolving customer demands. But, they had a highly customized environment and wanted to preserve the data they’d accumulated over the years.


It wasn’t easy. But, with Perforce, it was possible.


How? Find out.


Join Cindi Hunter, Director of Configuration Management and Tom Tyler, Senior Consultant at Perforce Software, and learn about their highly successful migration process, which includes:

  • Defining the scope of your migration given your unique environment.
  • Determining a migration strategy to preserve sophisticated branching strategies, custom tools, and important data.
  • Ensuring you get the migration support you need from your new vendor.


Bring your questions. At the end of the webinar, we’re hosting a live Q&A.
