Jama Software has announced the availability of the Jama Integration Hub. The Integration Hub, powered by Tasktop, will help companies overcome one of the most prevalent obstacles to effective product and application delivery: synchronizing workflow and artifacts between applications.

The many teams working on products at every stage in the definition and development lifecycle typically work in disconnected tools which hinders information flow and challenges organizations to have a single, shared understanding of what is being built and how to track progress. Software developers increasingly use specialized Agile tools, such as Rally and Atlassian JIRA, for their discrete tasks. With its robust Integration Hub, Jama seamlessly connects data from these tools into one central repository of product information.

In developing the Jama Integration Hub, Jama Software has partnered with Tasktop to OEM a subset of Tasktop Sync. Tasktop Sync is an enterprise-grade integration bus that enables collaboration across software teams, by integrating the most widely used tools in software development and delivery. With Jama Integration Hub, users can easily collaborate with their colleagues using JIRA, HP QC, Rally and Microsoft Team Foundation Server.

“As software increasingly drives product innovation, product teams are charged with scaling Agile practices across the organization,” said Dave West, Chief Product Officer at Tasktop. “Core to this is real-time collaboration and iteration among groups from strategy through definition, development and quality assurance. With the new Jama Integration Hub, customers get seamless flow of information across teams and traceability among artifacts such as requirements, features, use cases and defects.”

The Integration Hub is a critical component of Jama’s new Agile Workflow Design, also announced today. The first of several planned prescriptive service offerings, the Agile Workflow draws on Jama’s seven years of experience consulting customers on how to optimize collaboration among teams and configure delivery environments to their organization’s process and methodology. This new offering, combined with direct connectivity to Agile development tools, gives Jama users a tangible framework for how to scale Agile across the enterprise.
