Sync

Integrate your tools. Connect your software development and delivery team.

The good news: there are superb tools available today for every phase of software development and delivery. Tools for developers. Tools for testers. Tools for business analysts and product managers. Tools for service desk, software security, and portfolio management professionals. Tools for every discipline across your organization. Without question, these tools make each individual more productive in her or her own specialty.

The even better news: for the first time, you have a simple and powerful way to connect these tools, share the artifacts they create, and improve collaboration among all members of the team. Thanks to Tasktop Sync, collaboration, status updates and reporting  using email, spreadsheets and status meetings – are a thing of the past.

Running in the background, a constant flow of information among practitioners and their tools

Our flagship product, Tasktop Sync works behind the scenes to provide fully automated, enterprise-grade synchronization among the tools used by your software development and delivery team. Everyone works in their tools of choice, but has real-time access to updates other team members make in theirs.

No more information scavenger hunts. No more mistakes caused by old or incomplete information. No more interminable email threads and status meetings.

Keep your infrastructure. Lose the silos.

By synchronizing artifacts across tool boundaries, Tasktop Sync maintains and reinforces the investment you’ve already made in your tool infrastructure, but tears down the walls these tools created around each functional discipline.

And by enriching their existing reports, Tasktop Sync gives management greater visibility across the entire project team  leading to better decision-making and planning.

Tasktop Sync enables:

Collaboration

Connect all stakeholders in the software delivery supply chain. Reduce friction that slows development, introduces errors and makes regulatory compliance difficult. 

Flow

Unlock data trapped within lifecycle tool silos and let it flow automatically between systems.

Traceability

Get a view into the relationships among development artifacts and changes made to them – no matter what tool those changes were made in.

Visibility

Achieve greater cross-project visibility through existing reports and analytics. 

Other Key Benefits

  • Increase practitioner efficiency and satisfaction by providing more current information with less administrative overhead.
  • Integrate best-of-breed, open source, legacy and enterprise Agile tools.
  • Reduce risk in your Agile rollout or tool modernization strategy.
  • Provide the infrastructure for scaled Agile.
  • Gain advantages of tool standardization without replacing or eliminating existing tools.
  • Extend life and increase ROI of existing infrastructure.
  • Reduce costs and risk related to adoption of new tools and technology.

 

Features

The integration techniques incorporated in Tasktop Sync have been developed over the course of many years and have been used by millions of users. Our deep understanding of the semantics and tools used in software development is unmatched. We’ve designed Tasktop Sync to make the complex task of integrating software development and delivery tools look easy, by developing a robust, yet easily configurable integration server.

Ease of deployment and use

  • System administrators can integrate software tools through a graphical interface that lets them create, maintain and monitor integrations – with no programming.
  • Differences among data types, text formatting, and even very complex relationships among artifacts are handled right out of the box.
  • Browser-based analytics and dashboards simplify management and monitoring of ALM systems.
  • ALM tool users never see Tasktop Sync and don’t leave their tool of choice; artifacts are synched automatically without manual intervention.

Support for leading ALM and DevOps tools … and their multiple versions

  • Our technology approach and vendor relationships give us unrivaled knowledge of the nuances of each system, create very sophisticated integrations among these systems and allows us to stay abreast of changes in the endpoint systems.
  • When the tool vendors release a new version, we support it soon after. For SaaS products, our test lab catches API changes as soon as the release is rolled out.

Enterprise-grade solution

  • Our test lab with over 200 dedicated VMs runs hundreds of thousands of tests nightly.
  • Tasktop Sync understands, mirrors and synchronizes artifact relationships, no matter how complex, across the enterprise.
  • Provides real-time synchronization with <1s response time.
  • Highly-efficient change detection algorithm does not over-burden endpoint systems; performance is not gated by the number of artifacts synched.
  • Tasktop Sync integrates on-premise, on-demand and hybrid infrastructures.
  • Provides advanced conflict resolution – handles simultaneous updates and conflicts resulting from differences in workflow rules among endpoint systems.
  • Operates even when endpoints are disconnected or offline.
  • Integration templates facilitate large-scale deployments.

Developed by the leader in Software Lifecycle Integration

  • Created by a leading technical team with a focus on quality.
  • Supported by a field organization with a focus on customer success.
