Stocks in this article: MCRO

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Tasktop Technologies (, creators of Eclipse Mylyn and a global leader in ALM integration and developer tools, and Micro Focus (LSE:MCRO.L), the leading provider of enterprise application modernization, testing and management solutions , today announced the Tasktop Borland StarTeam Connector. The new connector, available for both Tasktop Dev and Tasktop Sync, provides access to Micro Focus’ Borland StarTeam change management assets from within Eclipse or Visual Studio, and enables complete synchronization of ALM servers from multiple vendors and open source projects.

The two companies are demonstrating the Tasktop Borland StarTeam Connector at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development and Integration Summit, Nov. 29Dec. 1 in Las Vegas ( ).

"Tasktop, Borland and now Micro Focus have a shared vision of putting the developer at the center of ALM," said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop and creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project. "We first started working together by way of Borland's past contributions to the Eclipse Mylyn project. Today, we're thrilled to announce our partnership with Micro Focus, a leader in developer-centric ALM tools. With the integrations that we're releasing today, StarTeam customers will get a first-class Eclipse and Visual Studio experience via Tasktop Dev and can integrate StarTeam with a broad range of third party and open source Agile and ALM solutions supported by Tasktop Sync."

Developer productivity is increasingly being obstructed due to interruptions and the need to leave the IDE to update status and complete work. Even with the best intentions, developers often forget to relate the code they have changed to the task they were working on. With the Tasktop Dev Borland StarTeam Connector, developers' work is automatically linked to the task, defect, requirement or custom artifact that the developer was focused on. With Tasktop Sync, enterprise teams using Borland StarTeam can integrate and synchronize mixed and best-of-breed ALM stacks, including HP ALM and HP Quality Center, IBM Rational Team Concert, and two dozen other leading Agile, ALM, and open source tools. It provides single-source traceability and reporting across the tools used for enterprise Agile ALM planning, software development and quality management.
