Drinking Our Own Champagne: A View into How Tasktop Manages its Own Integration Ecosystem

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

Ever wonder how Tasktop is able to manage and maintain over 70 ALM connectors from over 20 different vendors? As with most software companies, our “software supply chain” is complex ranging from open source to enterprise software. Each partner has their own development process, release cadence and testing approach and it is very hard to encourage them to change. In fact, we pride ourselves in being flexible on how we build and maintain the myriad of connectors we have so that we can accommodate our partners.

So how do we do it? Well, our story is probably not unlike many others out there. And it is top of mind, because Tasktop has recently embarked on a journey to evaluate our own integration ecosystem in order to ensure we can support and grow for our next generation of products and connectors. During this journey we have learned quite a bit, not only about how to work with different vendors, but how integration can form a currency for collaboration and communication.

In this session, we will demonstrate how Tasktop Sync plays such a crucial role in the development of our connector ecosystem and also discuss the human element of software development that, ironically, is exposed precisely because of a back end integration tool.

Attend this session and learn how to better manage your evolving software delivery ecosystem, increasing communication, visibility and success.
