VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tasktop Technologies (tasktop.com), creator of Eclipse Mylyn and a leader in Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Automation solutions, today announced it has been named to Ovum, "On the Radar," for application lifecycle management integration. "On the Radar" is part of Ovum's series of research notes that highlights up-and-coming vendors that bring innovative ideas, products, or business models to their markets. Vendors cited in the report are highlighted for their impact on markets and could be suitable for certain enterprise and public sector IT organizations.

"Since our creation of the Eclipse Mylyn project, Tasktop has been committed to maximizing the investment that companies are making in their Agile and ALM deployments, while providing developers with the task-focused tools that they need to be productive despite working with increasingly complex software lifecycle," said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the Eclipse Mylyn open source project. "Being named to the Ovum on the Radar is an important validation of the impact that we're making connecting software delivery in a world of heterogeneous tools via our Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Dev products."

Key messages of the report include:

  • Enterprise developers prefer best-of-breed ALM tools, which reduces the benefits that a single-vendor, integrated suite can offer. Tasktop is able to provide the required integration and avoid expensive point-to-point integrations.
  • Tasktop integration is deep, allowing diverse tools from multiple vendors to be able to comment, communicate, and share data in real-time across ALM systems.
  • Driven by market demand, Tasktop continues to expand the range of ALM tools and tools in adjoining spaces around ALM that it integrates with.
  • Tasktop continues to innovate, with ALM information flow visualization and management the latest addition to its portfolio.

According to Ovum's analysis, "Tasktop has established itself as an ALM integration hub vendor and ALM solutions market partner. With no ALM standard emerging in the industry, Tasktop has become the company that other vendors are happy to work with as their ALM integration partner."
