SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/13 -- Kovair Software, a leader in Integrated Application
Lifecycle Management - ALM, today announced that it has joined the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry
Partner Program (VSIP).Gathering requirements aren't a matter of writing things down. It's a process of
discovery. So we should expect our requirements to be in a state of continuous change. Change is
constant and the one absolute in software development. Permitting changes to requirements in an

schedules, and cost overruns. Frustration occurs between end users, analysts, developers, and managers
alike. As the amount of requirements that is captured grows, it is most likely to get harder and harder to

Kovair Omnibus is an integration platform that connects more than 40 popular ALM tools from leading
vendors and open source groups. With Omnibus, Microsoft customers with heterogeneous software
development tool environments can achieve connectivity to non-Microsoft best of breed tools in the
industry and achieve process automation, traceability and reporting across the entire software
development lifecycle.

Kovair offers Omnibus connectors for many Microsoft products, including Visual Studio, Team
Foundation Server, Microsoft Project, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel.
Omnibus is based on .NET technology and uses Microsoft SQL Server for data repository, making it
easier for any Microsoft customer adoption.

Atlassian JIRA, GIT, CA Clarity, Subversion and Hudson. Integration using Omnibus improves software
quality, accelerates time-to-market and provides more than 20% productivity boost with real-time

development with Microsoft roadmap and be able to help customers implement their development
strategies ahead of the curve," said Bipin Shah, CEO and Chairman of Kovair Software.
"Kovair helps development teams move to a modern and cohesive ALM environment by integrating and
synchronizing requirements, work items, test cases and other artifacts between popular ALM tools and
