Tasktop Technologies Selected for 'Ready to Rocket' List for Fourth Consecutive Year

Award Recognizes British Columbia Tech Firms That Best Match Tech Innovation With Market Opportunity, Set for Significant Revenue Growth

VANCOUVER, BC, MAR. 2, 2015 – Tasktop Technologies, the leader in DevOps Integration and the creators of the Eclipse Mylyn open source tool, today announced it has been named to the Ready to Rocket Information and Communications Technology (ICT) list.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Tasktop has been named to the list, which recognizes companies in the British Columbia technology sector with the greatest potential for revenue growth.

“Each year when we choose the Ready to Rocket companies, we are looking for those companies that have best matched technical innovation with market opportunity,” said Reg Nordman, managing partner, Rocket Builders. “Tasktop is an excellent example of the right technology for the right customers at the right time.”

Tasktop addresses software development and delivery process challenges by providing fully automated, enterprise-grade integration among the tools that the various stakeholders in these processes use. This integration allows development, testing, project management and IT service management teams to continue to use the software purpose-built for their discipline, while allowing all of these teams to collaborate in real-time on their work products. Real-time information flow creates enhanced collaboration and visibility. As a result, individual contributors are better informed and save time, and management has greater visibility across the entire project team, providing information for better decision making and planning.

“We are honored to be recognized as a key part of the BC tech landscape with our fourth Ready to Rocket recognition,” said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop. “The Ready to Rocket program and team have been making some great contributions to the BC startup ecosystem, which thrives on these kinds of tech community centric activities."
