Tasktop Launches Enhanced Versions of Sync and Data to Expand Its Software Lifecycle Integration Ecosystem

By CIOReview | Monday, August 3, 2015

Vancouver, BC: Tasktop, a provider of Software Lifecycle Integration solutions, launches the latest enhanced versions of its Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Data products to provide a superior user experience.

The latest version of Tasktop Sync improves its Artifact Relationship Management (ARM) capabilities. It not only mirrors artifacts in other systems, but also mirrors related artifacts and the relationships among them.

In some cases, related artifacts can’t be mirrored because the second system has no facility to manage that type of artifact. With this latest version, users of that second system will be able to see the original artifact in a “rich hover” dialog box without leaving their tool. In order to accomplish this, Tasktop leverages the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) standard so that all OSLC-compliant products can display this rich hover; even non-OSLC compliant tools can provide the data for rich hover.

The addition of iRise and Blueprint supplements existing support for a wide range of requirements management and elicitation products, including DOORS, DOORS NG, IBM Requisite Pro, Jama, Polarion and Serena Dimensions RM.

The latest version of Tasktop Data offers an enhanced user experience, which raises the abstraction for integration and data streaming, enabling a broader set of people with even less tool knowledge to create a data warehouse of software lifecycle data. Moreover,  provides additional systems support, such as for Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Visual Studio Online, VersionOne, RTC, Bluemix, Blueprint, iRise, HP PPM, ClearQuest and CA PPM.
