November 21, 2011

VANCOUVER , British Columbia, Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com), creators of Eclipse Mylyn and a global leader in ALM integration and developer tools, today announced that its product, Tasktop Sync (http://tasktop.com/sync) has been selected as a finalist for Dr. Dobb’s 21st Annual Jolt Awards (http://drdobbs.com/joltawards) in the Coding category.

For the past 21 years, Dr. Dobb’s Jolt Awards have been presented annually to products that have “jolted” the industry with their significance and made the task of creating software faster, easier and more efficient. This year, finalists are selected on an ongoing basis across several categories.

“We’re proud Dr. Dobb’s has recognized Tasktop Sync for its ability to help large organizations produce and deliver software more efficiently and effectively communicate across multiple stakeholders with increased traceability,” said Neelan Choksi, President & COO of Tasktop. “Today’s modern software development world is fraught with chaos characterized by decentralized decision making, frequent iterations, outsourced and remote workers, and information overload. Tasktop Sync is our response to those challenges. It provides the only real-time and transparent connectivity between the various stakeholders in the software delivery process from management, business analysts, testers and developers, allowing each stakeholder to be successful while improving the combined results of the organization.”

Unlike previous approaches to ALM synchronization, Tasktop Sync is built on the industry-standard Eclipse Mylyn ALM interoperability framework to provide real-time synchronization, automatic and configurable conflict resolution, and support for more than two dozen ALM tools’ tracking and reporting facilities. Building on the company’s Task Federation(TM) technology, Tasktop Sync ensures that each stakeholder in the software development lifecycle has access to the data that they need within their tool of choice, even if the data resides across requirements management, Agile development and traditional quality management systems.
