Central to adopting Agile practices is the notion of enhanced collaboration among team members. It’s ironic then, that the tools that teams have deployed to help manage their work have actually served to create information silos around their users, simply because they don’t interoperate. This becomes even more problematic when organizations are looking to scale their Agile practices. These organizations not only need to have their teams collaborate, but they also need to find a way to support traditional needs of governance, traceability and visibility - across teams – without losing the ability to use Agile practices.

Tasktop Sync provides enterprise-scale integration among the tools used by software delivery teams, providing members of the team the ability to collaborate on shared artifacts from within their tool of choice.  

Because Sync supports the most popular Agile planning tools, as well as the mostly widely used enterprise DevOps tools, we can help teams scale their Agile practices.
