Polarion Software is very excited to announce the launch of our new Polarion Extension site (formerly known as POP). The new site was designed for the Polarion user community to easily publish and download valuable extensions that continue to enhance your Polarion ecosystem.

The new site features two unique categories for extensions to be listed on for easier access and sharing. The first one is designed for free extension templates and reports as well as to provide an incubation section for authors to exhibit and trial-test extensions. The second is for fee-based extensions which we are excited to launch in an app marketplace that will showcase the latest and greatest extensions developed by our Technology Partners, customers and overall user community.

What the Analysts are Saying

Michael Azoff, Principal Analyst,Software Infrastructure Solutions, OVUM Consulting was quoted about the $10 million dollars Siemens strategic corporate investment:

"Polarion has a first-class ALM solution, but when faced with the much larger IT players backing their ALM solutions, it runs into the issue of longevity. Polarion has made significant inroads into the mechatronics space, but where an aerospace manufacturer requires assurance that the tool vendor will last the 30-or-so-year lifetime of the manufactured product, it has found it a challenge to compete on an equal basis. Now with a substantial vendor, Siemens, as a backer, this fear will no longer play in customer eyes and will allow Polarion to expand into new and bigger contracts."
