SEATTLE, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

    Who:          Mik Kersten

                  CEO and Co-Founder

                  Tasktop Technologies

           Kersten is the CEO of Tasktop and lead of the Eclipse
                   Mylyn open source project. His goal is to create the
                   collaborative infrastructure needed to connect knowledge
                   workers in the new world of software delivery. At
                   Tasktop, he drives the strategic direction of the
                   company, developing key partnerships and fostering a
                   culture of customer-focused innovation.

    What:          Software Lifecycle Integration: How to put "best" into

           Software delivery is plagued by disjointed siloes of
                   information spanning software stakeholders and
                   suppliers. Over the years, developers and other members
                   of the software development and delivery team have
                   influenced the purchase of best-of-breed tools that
                   make them the most productive. The result is an
                   Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tool diversity
                   that has actually undermined the decade-old promise of
                   ALM software that helps unify software delivery teams.

                   Imagine an integrated fabric that allows information to
                   flow freely, and in real-time, across the stakeholders,
                   tool siloes and vendor boundaries. It's called Software
                   Lifecycle Integration (SLI).

           When the application development stack became overly
                   complex, the role of the enterprise architect became
                   clear, and a new discipline and middleware tool category
                   formed. Just as connecting the back-end services and
                   applications that power our organizations required the
                   creation of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), the modern
                   software development lifecycle requires a similar
                   category of tools and processes in order to scale the
                   promise of Agile and Lean software delivery. In this
                   webinar Kersten will discuss:

                   The role of the Lifecycle Architect
    A taxonomy of
                    integration concepts and approaches
    A common data model
                    for SLI
    Software lifecycle architecture
