Tasktop Moves to the Server: Tasktop Sync Announced
Tasktop have announced the 1.0 release of a brand new product.
Tasktop have announced a new product, Tasktop Sync, which
moves the Task Federation technology from the desktop client, to
Tasktop’s Task Federation is a suite of tools that enable
integration, visibility and traceability across heterogeneous ALM
tool stacks. Tasktop Sync is a real-time synchroniser for ALM, that
allows ALM architects to set up a mapping between the various ALM
systems. Tasktop Sync then builds up a cache, so that every change
in the test system can be propagated to the agile tool, and back
again. This allows stakeholders to work with their tools of choice,
and still be able to collaborate. Features include automated and
configurable conflict resolution, and support for a range of
artifact types, including tasks, defects, work items, tests, and
requirements. Data is stored in the customer’s existing ALM
systems, which means no new repositories are required.
Tasktop Sync is sold as a solution consisting of product
licenses, and a Jump Start deployment services program. The Jump
Start program consists of 10 days of professional services,
including analysis, customisation and training.
