Understanding the Significance of Tools Integration

VIEWS: 16 PAGES: 1

Based on their functions, technologies and geographical locations, developers of any product development lifecycle usually work in isolation. It is often found that tools within the enterprise do not communicate with each other. Be it a requirement management tool not communicating with a test management tool or a test management tool not communicating with an Issue tracking tool.

Based on their functions, technologies and geographical locations, developers of any product development lifecycle
usually work in isolation. It is often found that tools within the enterprise do not communicate with each other. Be it
a requirement management tool not communicating with a test management tool or a test management tool not
communicating with an Issue tracking tool. Although most organizations use the best of breed tools from multiple
vendors, there is seldom any kind interconnectivity and data transferability unless point to point integrations are
carried out. Different tools from the same vendor are not typically connected with each other, in most cases. To get
an integrated picture of various aspects of the development life cycle, it is essential to have single data repository so
that the data for Requirements, test, issues and other ALM entities resides in the same repository.

By using an omnibus technology that is SOA based, the need for point to point integrations are eliminated. As the
SOA technology based Omnibus is data technology, vendor and location agnostic, it can be can be integrated with
other tools or can be located anywhere. A suitable omnibus technology solution integrates the various tools and
considerably enhances the value of those tools and increases the ROI for customers.

The Omnibus Technology advantage

An omnibus with SOA architecture makes it open to any type of software from any vendor including home grown
tools or data bases for integrations. This technology has a few unique advantages that include substantial savings in
development and maintenance costs. With the omnibus technology, there is no requirement for hard coding of
business rules as the data layer is divided from the business layer. The API for other tools is available as integrations
with other tools are made easy. Omnibus integrations facilitate the enhancement of capabilities with other tools.

Organizations that have investments in multiple tools can obtain excellent value proposition to enhance ROI in two
major ways – one by providing the capabilities to integrate tools at a relatively low cost, by investing in an efficient
cost saving solution. As the omnibus technology has a compelling value proposition for the integration of tools, the
same should not be overlooked. With a true integrated Application Lifecycle Management, there is an integration of
any tool with any vendor. This way the customers can enhance the value of various tools and simultaneously
increase the ROI.
