Depaul, a leading provider of business administration software, will close its online BBA business administration forum on Tuesday, according to a post on the company’s website.
The company also confirmed to The Verge that the forum will be shut down as part of its ongoing business-administration restructuring.
Depaul is the third software company to close a BBA forum this year, following Salesforce and SAP.
“As a result of the business operations restructuring announced this week, Depaul’s online BDAB Forum will be closing on Tuesday,” the company wrote in a statement.
“It is our hope that we can find other opportunities to provide our customers with a more efficient, efficient, and reliable online BaaS platform for business.”
The BBA site, which was previously available in the form of a Google Doc, was created in 2003 by a group of software developers who were searching for ways to better manage their work.
The forum was created to help business administrators manage software development, but it has also become an invaluable resource for developers and those who manage software products.
Depaim also has a separate online BABE forum, where users can post questions about their software development process.
