Jama PTC Integrity Integration Overview
In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) environment, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role in delivering quality solutions. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements.
Best-of-breed systems such as Jama and PTC Integrity bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem. By integrating Jama with PTC Integrity, enterprises can diminish the collaboration barriers between product and development teams that otherwise lead to quality issues, delivery delays, and financial loss.

Use Case: Jama integration with PTC Integrity
Problem statement: If the requirement management system and ALM system are not integrated, the communication between product management team and backend team will happen manually – which can be error prone and time consuming.
Solution: If Jama and PTC Integrity are integrated, then the backend team and product management team will always be in sync about the progress of a deliverable. They will also have visibility into each other tasks from their native systems.
- The Product Manager creates a ‘requirement’ in Jama with basic details – “Description with inline image”.
- The requirement synchronizes to PTC Integrity as ‘requirement with inline image’.
- The developer has some queries regarding the ‘requirement’ so he/she updates the queries in comments and adds the associated attachments in PTC Integrity.
- The updated ‘requirement’ synchronizes to Jama. The Product Manager responds to the queries.
- The developer, them, creates a ‘test case’ in PTC Integrity and links it to the corresponding requirement. The ‘test case’ synchronizes to Jama.
- The developer then starts work on the ‘requirement’, completes it, and runs a test case against it. Whether the test case passes or fails, the developer changes the status of ‘test case’ and ‘requirement’. The status of both entities synchronizes to Jama.
