Over a million users employ Tasktop’s ALM integration technology to transform the productivity of software delivery, by connecting the development, testing, Agile planning, PMO and operations functions into a unified software development and delivery team.

Organizations have worked hard to create a tool infrastructure that will make all members of the software development and delivery team more productive. They’ve invested in Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools such as Requirements Management, Test Management, Agile Project Management, Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) and Service Desk products.

But when it comes to sharing the artifacts they create, business analysts, product managers, product owners, developers, architects, testers, system administrators, project managers, scrum masters and help desk professionals all find their work stuck within their tool silos. ALM integration allows these software development artifacts, such as user stories, requirements, test plans, defects, and incidents – just about everything but the code – that are created in one ALM system to flow to the others.

Our flagship product, Tasktop Sync is an integration server that provides fully automated, enterprise-scale synchronization among the artifacts created and managed within the disparate tools used in software development and delivery organizations. Tasktop Sync works in the background, keeping the flow of information among the practitioners and their tools, constant. Everyone works in their tool of choice, but has real-time access to the changes other team members are making in their tools. Practitioners are better informed and save time. Management has greater visibility across the entire project team, providing information for better decision making and planning.
