SAN MATEO, CA, and VANCOUVER, BC, July 9, 2015–Tricentis, a global leader in enterprise software testing that accelerates business innovation, and Tasktop, the leader in Software Lifecycle Integration (SLI) and creator of the Eclipse Mylyn open source tool, today announced the expansion of their relationship with an OEM partnership.
Tricentis will offer an OEM solution called Tosca Connect, which is powered by Tasktop Sync, Tasktop’s leading SLI solution, and allows customers to connect automated testing with existing development processes to lower business risk and accelerate product development. Tosca Connect removes barriers to test automation adoption and enables standardization of Tricentis Tosca as a seamlessly integrated component of the software development tool stack. Customers can extend their benefits of test automation by also automating the collaboration between test and other disciplines such as requirements management and defect management. This removes costly and error-prone manual processes while enabling the short test sprints required by Agile teams.
“We are excited to build upon our strong relationship with Tasktop,” said Sandeep Johri, Tricentis CEO. “With our OEM product, testers using Tosca will be able to gain control of application quality across the entire Agile software lifecycle.”
Last year, the two companies announced that Tasktop had integrated Tasktop Sync, which provides fully automated, enterprise-grade synchronization among the tools used by software development and delivery teams, with Tricentis Tosca , the leading application functional testing software and most advanced automation and risk management tools.
“Tricentis is a market leader,” said Dave West, chief product officer, Tasktop. “This latest agreement tightens our relationship and makes it easy for customers to assemble a best-of-breed development tool stack standardized on Tosca.”
Tasktop Sync integrates Tosca with Rally, Atlassian JIRA, HP QC, HP ALM, Jama, IBM RTC, Microsoft TFS, IBM DOORS, IBM DOORS Next Gen/Rational Requirements Composer, ServiceNow, VersionOne and others, resulting in stronger collaboration across software development and delivery teams.
Over one million users employ Tasktop’s ALM and SLI 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. Tasktop customers are the global leaders in financial services, insurance, government and manufacturing, and include 22 of the Fortune 100, seven of the top 25 banks in the world and four of the top seven US insurance companies. Partners, including CA, HP, IBM and Serena, rely on our independent, vendor-neutral role to connect their customers’ software delivery disciplines via OEM distributions of our products. Tasktop has defined the Software Lifecycle Integration (SLI) category to fulfill our mission to “connect the world of software delivery.” For more information about Tasktop and SLI, please visit:tasktop.com.
