Rational ClearCase is a software tool for revision control (configuration management, SCM etc) of source code and other software development assets. It originally derived from a product of Apollo Computers: DSEE (Domain Software Engineering Environment), which was ported to Unix and further developed by Atria Software after Hewlett-Packard bought Apollo. Atria later merged with Pure Software to form PureAtria. That firm merged with Rational Software, which was purchased by IBM. IBM continues to develop and market ClearCase. ClearCase forms the base of version control for many large and medium sized businesses and can handle projects with hundreds or thousands of developers, but the price is quite steep for smaller companies.
