Tasktop Integration Hub Launched
January 31, 2017

Tasktop announced the Tasktop Integration Hub (Tasktop), which uses a reimagined approach to connect software delivery at scale.

Building on the success and market leadership of the Tasktop Sync, Data and Gateway products, this new, unified suite introduces model-based integration, a new visual and web-based user interface, and the ability to connect all tools and stakeholders in the delivery pipeline. Already supporting the world’s largest Agile and DevOps transformations, Tasktop enables enterprises to scale deployments to hundreds of projects, tens of thousands of users and millions of artifacts — without writing a single line of code.

Tasktop serves as a Value Stream Integration platform, providing organizations with an enterprise-grade backbone that flows information in real time across all of the people, processes and tools involved in software delivery.

“While every developer and IT practitioner knows that best-of-breed tools are key to productivity, many IT execs are still looking for an end-to-end tool platform,” said Mik Kersten, Tasktop CEO. “That era is over, and software enterprises need to quickly adapt to the age of modular tool chains to scale their Agile and DevOps practices and avoid disruption. Nearly a decade of creating the leading open source, open standards and point-to-point integration solutions made us realize that existing approaches have hit a dead end. I am thrilled to announce that after three years of development, we are releasing an entirely new approach to Agile and DevOps integration, automation, and visibility. Tasktop allows enterprises to define value stream artifacts and flows in a unified Integration Hub, ensuring that teams get the productivity benefits of each tool while the business realizes immediate ROI from eliminating the waste of manual entry, automating end-to-end traceability and easily achieving end-to-end visibility.”

Product Highlights:

- Model-based paradigm for visually connecting dozens of tools across hundreds of projects without requiring any coding. For example, user stories, defects and support ticket models are defined in Tasktop, and then can be easily mapped across dozens of different projects and tools.

- Support for applying different styles of integration across tools. For example, Agile and ITSM tools can be integrated for defect/ticket unification then easily connected to a database for instant Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR) metrics.

- Easy scaling across hundreds of projects. By defining models that span projects and tools, new projects can be on-boarded easily and connected to the value stream.

- All integrations work all of the time thanks to Tasktop’s unique Integration Factory. For example, multiple versions of the same tool can be connected, along with old versions of legacy tools and the frequently updated APIs of SaaS tools, without breaking because Tasktop tests all version combinations. Currently, Tasktop supports 51 tools and 364 versions.

The Tasktop Integration Hub has been in limited release since April 2016 and is available immediately.
