As a Silver Sponsor, Tasktop continues its support of the growing Agile community as development, management and business stakeholders in the software development industry gather to exchange ideas, experiences and best practices.

"As we prepare to kick-off Agile2012 we are pleased to have the support of Tasktop as we come together to foster the exchange of fresh ideas and best practices," said Mitch Lacey, Agile2012 conference chair for the Agile Alliance "Through the support of our sponsors the Agile conference continues to offer the most relevant and current content, while providing the community a forum to exchange information regarding all Agile development technologies."

Agile2012 offers multiple 'stages' to attract audiences with different interests. The stages within the program are proven to provide participants with a focused area of interest while offering attendees a wide choice of topics to choose from. Agile2012 will host a number of exciting and beneficial stages, including: adoption and transformation, Agile boot camp, business value/working with stakeholders, coaching and mentoring, collaboration culture and teams, development practices and craftsmanship, distributed Agile, enterprise Agile, insights, leadership, no-bull know-how,  open jam, research in practice and user experience.

Agile2012 attendees have the opportunity to explore the latest Agile development methodologies, technologies, tools, leadership principles, management philosophies and processes. The conference program provides insights into new and practical approaches for Agile success that attendees can immediately put into practice within their organizations.

Tasktop helps software organizations implement enterprise-wide Agile and ALM modernization initiatives by connecting developers, through Tasktop Dev, and cross-functional enterprise teams, through Tasktop Sync, to automate the entire application lifecycle. All Tasktop products leverage the Eclipse Mylyn integration framework to provide a more strategic, standardized and scalable synchronization solution than typical point-to point-batch process integrations. Its tools provide visibility into ALM work flow, real-time data sharing of cross-function activities, and insight into actual performance and business value. IT organizations use Tasktop to synchronize and automate development processes to deliver market value quicker, reduce inefficiencies and promote collaboration and innovation by connecting individuals and teams across the enterprise.

"Every year, the world's foremost Agile practitioners gather to share the latest techniques, methods and innovations, and we expect Agile2012 to again include a significant portion of the Tasktop partner ecosystem in attendance," said Neelan Choksi, President and COO of Tasktop Technologies. "Throughout the years, the Agile Conference has been a launching point for a variety of Tasktop initiatives including Tasktop Sync, Tasktop's cross-repository Agile planning tools, and we are excited about our new initiatives that we will unveil at Agile2012.  Tasktop is proud of the important role we play in driving adoption of Agile in the enterprise by connecting the industry's foremost Agile software development tools with the world leading development, project management, and quality assurance tools."
