Orlando (AGILE 2010). – August 10, 2010 — Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com), creators of Eclipse Mylyn and the leader in Agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) integration and productivity, and Accept Corporation (www.accept360.com), a leader in product innovation management, today announced the Accept360 Mylyn Connector. The connector will help streamline development, improve project visibility and drive software innovation by providing direct access to Accept360 Agile from within the Eclipse IDE.
"In partnership, Tasktop and Accept provide the first seamless integration between day-to-day development activity and product portfolio and innovation management," said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project. "Linking Accept360 to the developer's Eclipse-based desktop will provide an unprecedented level of visibility, enabling the organization to more accurately track and plan products, requirements, ideas and Agile delivery"
The Accept360 Mylyn Connector supports Tasktop's award-winning productivity technology called the task-focused interface, which automatically tracks and presents the "context" of source code, documents and web pages that are most relevant for a given task. It reduces information overload for large-scale projects while enabling one click multitasking and interruption recovery. Available in Tasktop Pro, it will provide rich desktop access to the Accept360 Suite from the developer’s Eclipse IDE or a standalone desktop application. The Accept360 Mylyn Connector will deliver a new level of visibility – from the developer’s desktop up to R&D decision-makers – and provide a single, integrated solution that spans the entire product innovation management process, better aligning customers, business strategy, products and development efforts.
Accept360 Agile provides an enterprise-scalable solution that drives collaboration and speed across complex distributed teams with greater clarity around the “what, how, why and when” of every feature built. It increases value delivered in every sprint and perfectly aligns product execution plans to Agile or a hybrid of other methodologies. Accept360 Agile is one of five integrated modules that make up the Accept360 Product Management Innovation Suite, the only complete end-to-end solution that tightly links strategy and decisions from ideation through portfolio planning, roadmaps, requirements and execution
"The partnership with Tasktop is part of Accept’s strategy to provide a complete, end-to-end integrated product innovation management solution to increase agility and enable faster, confident decision making through visibility, real time analytics, and integrated collaboration," said John Haniotis, senior vice president of products for Accept Corporation. "Extending the visibility and collaboration that goes into great product innovation and execution through the Accept360 Mylyn Connector is a major step to helping our customers deliver successful products faster."
The Accept360 Mylyn Connector will be available for download directly from the Mylyn Connector Discovery listing that is included in eight of nine Eclipse distribution packages. General availability is scheduled for the end of November, 2010. Tasktop and Accept Corporation representatives will be available at the Tasktop booth at Agile 2010 (http://agile2010.agilealliance.org/) to provide more information about the integration and partnership.
