Tasktop provides industry-leading support for the IBM Rational suite of tools through its Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Dev products. Tasktop continues to work closely with IBM Rational by providing industry-leading support for the legacy IBM Rational tools and the next generation Collaborative Lifecycle Management suite of tools. In addition to support provided by Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Dev, Tasktop is a member of the OSLC Steering Committee. By working on the OSLC standards, which are driven by IBM, Tasktop is helping to define the integration standard for software delivery tools. In addition to external standards, Tasktop is a member of the Ready for Rational program.
Tasktop Sync provides real-time integration of external third party products to IBM Rational products. By connecting these tools, users can see third party data within Rational tools, collaborate on artifacts and execute consistent workflow across the tool stack. Rational CLM suite offers lifecycle management but traditionally has been undermined when external, non-Rational tools are used. By combining Tasktop Sync and Rational products, users are offered an end to end, heterogeneous lifecycle solution.
By building on top of the power of Mylyn, Tasktop Dev for IBM Rational provides comprehensive IDE integration for both Eclipse and Visual Studio. Tasktop Dev unlocks the power of IBM Rational tools in the context of the IDE, allowing developers to find and connect to artifacts while working on Rational projects. Tasktop Dev expands on Mylyn by providing commercial support for developer productivity, personnel task management and a task oriented interface.
