Tricentis and Tasktop Accelerate the Benefits of Agile at Scale

Tasktop unveils new Tricentis offering and Dr. Mik Kersten offers insight on integrating Agile, ALM and DevOps at Accelerate 2014 in Vienna.

VANCOUVER, BC & SAN MATEO, CA, September 17, 2014 - Tasktop Technologies, the leader in DevOps and Software Lifecycle Integration and the creators of the Eclipse Mylyn open source tool, and Tricentis, a global leader in enterprise software testing solutions that accelerate business innovation, are pleased to announce Tasktop’s multi-level participation in Tricentis Accelerate 2014 in Vienna, Austria. During the event, Tasktop will demonstrate a preview of their upcoming product release, which integrates Tricentis’ Tosca with other tools in the software development and delivery ecosystem. In addition, Dr. Mik Kersten, Tasktop’s CEO and Founder, will speak during a session at Accelerate.

Tricentis and Tasktop first announced their partnership in February of this year. The partnership was formed to combine Tricentis Tosca Testsuite, the leading application functional testing software and most advanced automation and risk management tools in the industry, and Tasktop Sync, the leading enterprise-grade integration bus for synchronizing and collaborating on artifacts across all disciplines of the software development and delivery lifecycle. The combined solution allows customers to implement and manage agile testing solutions more quickly, lower business failure risk, and decrease total cost of ownership (TCO).

“We welcome Tasktop as an Accelerate 2014 Gold sponsor,” said Sandeep Johri Tricentis CEO. “As enterprises continue to adopt Agile methodologies, we find that test optimization, continuous automated testing, and integrations with products like Tasktop Sync, become critical to the successful rollout and update of their applications.”

Tasktop, a Gold Sponsor and exhibitor at Tricentis Accelerate, will preview highlights of the next release of Tasktop Sync. Tasktop Sync integrates Tricentis Tosca Testsuite with other software delivery disciplines and tools such as Rally, Atlassian JIRA, HP QC, HP ALM, IBM RTC, Microsoft TFS, IBM DOORS, IBM DOORS Next Gen/Rational Requirements Composer, ServiceNow®, and others, resulting in stronger collaboration across software development and delivery teams.

The Tricentis event focuses on the technology challenges of Global 2000 companies and features educational sessions provided by industry analysts, technology company experts, and business thought leaders. Dr. Mik Kersten’s talk, “Integrating Agile, ALM and DevOps testing with Tosca Testsuite and Tasktop,” highlights the messy reality of modern software development and the need to link disconnected disciplines and practices in the software delivery process. Kersten will also offer insight into the Software Lifecycle Integration patterns needed to achieve end-to-end quality when developing software applications.

"For organizations modernizing their test practice, integrating legacy and third party tools is critical to project success", said Dr. Kersten. "At Tricentis Accelerate, we'll highlight how Tasktop Sync allows testers using Tosca to gain control of app quality across the entire Agile software lifecycle."

Tricentis Accelerate 2014 takes place at the Hotel Intercontinental Vienna, Johannesgasse 28, 1030 Vienna, Austria on September 18, 2014. Kersten’s talk is scheduled for 1:00pm CEST.
