Tasktop for HP ALM

Tasktop has a strong, long-running relationship with HP:

  • All of our products, Tasktop Dev, Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Data support HP Quality Center and HP ALM.
  • HP OEMs Tasktop Dev
  • Tasktop has been honored with HP’s AllianceOne Partner of the Year award in 2011 and 2014.

Our support of HP products enable their users to easily collaborate with stakeholders in other disciplines.

Through Tasktop Sync, Tasktop's integration server, artifacts such as defects, requirements and tests are synchronized between HP QC / ALM and third-party tools such as JIRA, RTC, TFS, ServiceNow and CA PPM. Each stakeholder operates in their tool of choice while collaborating on the artifacts that they have in common. This ‘invisible’ integration allows for a truly integrated lifecycle that increases transparency, governance and collaboration.

Tasktop Dev, which forms a major part of HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence, provides developers with access to HP QC and HP ALM artifacts from the comfort of their Eclipse or Visual Studio IDE.

Tasktop Data aggregates software lifecycle data from HP QC/ALM, and other tools, to provide a repository of cross-team information, ready to be queried by standard business intelligence tools.


Tasktop Sync provides an integration server that connects HP QC / ALM to third-party tools. This allows users of HP QC to collaborate with their colleagues using other tools. By synchronizing artifacts from HP to third-party tools, managers have the ability to use the reporting and traceability features within HP QC / ALM even if the artifacts are created, updated and completed in other tools.

Tasktop Dev offers IDE-based integration of HP ALM and HP QC for Visual Studio or Eclipse IDE. Tasktop Dev adds HP ALM / QC to the Eclipse Mylyn's task list and connects HP QC / ALM to 70+ ALM repositories at the IDE level. In addition, Tasktop Dev provides the ability to work with tasks, track and report time, integrate Outlook email with the task list, and track web pages and documents associated with each task. Tasktop Dev was OEM'd by HP as part of the Application Lifecycle Integration (ALI), part of the HP ALM.
