Tasktop announced advancements to its Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Data solutions that enable organizations to benefit from a connected, end-to-end software delivery lifecycle – starting from the needs of their businesses through software production.
According to Tasktop CEO Mik Kersten, “The biggest impediment to large-scale DevOps transformations is the lack of integration between the tools that define the delivery lifecycle. Enterprise developers, managers, testers and the operations team are all tracking their work in different disconnected systems. Different still are the automation tools used within a DevOps practice. This makes it impossible to scale DevOps deployments from a core team of 50 to a team of 5000 stakeholders. We’ve solved this DevOps scalability problem with today’s release of the Tasktop Gateway capability for Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Data. This new capability allows organizations to automate the connection between their DevOps automation tools and their lifecycle management tools, providing enterprise organizations with an an end-to-end DevOps Integration Hub.”
Organizations adopting a full-lifecycle DevOps initiative need visibility to all aspects of their software development and delivery capability. Tasktop’s synchronization and lifecycle data federation have enabled this for the leading Agile, ALM and SDLC deployments. However, organizations are now deploying a very broad range of DevOps automation tools like CI, CD and test automation; analysis tools like code review and static code analysis; and monitoring tools like APM products. Tasktop’s new Gateway capability allows all of these tools to be added to the entire range of Agile and ALM, PPM and ITSM tools supported by Tasktop, enabling unprecedented visibility across the entire lifecycle – and doing so without resorting to very brittle and unreliable point-to-point integrations that make scaling DevOps deployments difficult or impossible.
The latest versions of both Tasktop solutions are available immediately.
