Borland announced that HP will include Borland's Open ALM portfolio of products, including Borland StarTeam, Borland CaliberRM, and Borland Together, in its software delivery infrastructure. This bolsters the original partnership between Borland and Electronic Data Systems, which HP acquired Aug. 26, 2008. Borland said in a news release:

"In addition to using Borland's ALM products internally, the agreement provides HP the opportunity to resell Borland's portfolio and use the products to deliver application development services to clients around the world."
