CloudOne Announces Reseller Agreement with Tasktop
Indianapolis-based leader in Cloud Delivery of IBM Software-as-a-Service
Creates Partnership for a Managed Service for Tasktop Sync in the Cloud
INDIANAPOLIS & VANCOUVER, BC (September 10, 2014) CloudOne (www.oncloudone.com), an IBM Premier Business Partner and the industry leader in cloud delivery of IBM Software-as-a-Service, and Tasktop (www.tasktop.com), the leader in DevOps Integration and the creators of the Eclipse Mylyn open source integration framework, announced today they have entered into a partnership to provide Tasktop Sync to customers on CloudOne's public and virtual private clouds. This collaboration will accelerate cloud-based deployments for tools from IBM Rational and other solution providers. This partnership is particularly appealing for organizations that would like to limit their on-premise tool deployments in favor of a fully cloud-based workbench.
Tasktop Sync provides fully automated, enterprise-grade synchronization among the disparate tools used in software development and delivery organizations, including: IBM Rational, HP Quality Center/ALM, Microsoft TFS, Atlassian JIRA, ServiceNow and others. Tasktop Sync enhances efficiency in the entire software development and delivery lifecycle by allowing practitioners in the various disciplines to collaborate on the artifacts and work items they create. The result is instantaneous information flow throughout the organization, and enhanced project visibility and artifact traceability - all while team members continue to operate in their tool of choice.
“Tasktop Sync is designed to integrate both on-premise and cloud-based DevOps tools regardless of where Tasktop Sync itself is deployed. Customers find deploying Tasktop Sync on-premise to be a straight-forward process. However, as the industry continues moving toward the cloud some of our customers have expressed a preference for fully cloud-based tool chain deployments. This partnership now gives customers the flexibility to access Tasktop Sync as part of a cloud strategy backed by SaaS experts and the leader in DevOps Integration,” said Wesley Coelho, Senior Director of Business Development at Tasktop.
"Enabling CloudOne as a Tasktop reseller and creating an Integration-as-a-Service in the cloud strengthens CloudOne’s cloud development offerings with a platform of multipoint integrations. Development in the cloud is a powerful solution for our customers and adding Tasktop Sync allows us to provide options to connect their tools of choice for development. This partnership with Tasktop means customers who need a complete integrated solution with their current inventory of tools do not have to seek another solution. They reap the benefit of connecting their existing tools suite with the ability to grow capability more rapidly,” said James Pietrocarlo, Vice President of Business Development for CloudOne.
