Integration overview

In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a significant role. While tool choices impact a team’s productivity, cross-functional collaboration helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements.

Best-of-breed systems such as TeamForge and Agility (Formerly VersionOne) bring a rich feature set to the ecosystem. By integrating TeamForge and Agility, enterprises can seamlessly manage product development at a faster pace.

How TeamForge – Agility integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Simplifies administration and creates visibility for all teams across the development and delivery chain
  • With the product team having complete visibility into stories, any gap between the actual requirements and what is being developed can be immediately addressed
  • Accelerates the development and delivery cycle

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates TeamForge and Agility

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates TeamForge and Agility bi-directionally. It ensures all data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system—with full context—in real-time. All features created in Agility synchronize to TeamForge. The features can then be broken down into user stories with estimated effort, delivery timelines, and comments associated with further planning. The user stories along with all associated details synchronize to Agility. All teams involved in the application development and delivery process now have end-to-end insight into how the work is progressing.

Use Case: TeamForge integration with Agility

Problem statement: Cross-functional teams in an enterprise are using different software development systems. Since they are working in silos, none of the teams have a complete picture of all the customer needs and the end goal they must achieve as an enterprise.

Solution: When TeamForge and Agility (Formerly VersionOne) are integrated, cross-functional teams involved in the end-to-end application lifecycle have clear visibility into each other’s focus and tasks, and therefore, it becomes easier for them to collaborate.

  1. The product management team creates a feature in Agility. They enclose all customer e-mails as attachments for reference and add comments related to expected delivery timeline for the development team.
  2. The feature synchronizes to TeamForge. The development team creates releases and iterations under the planning folders. These details synchronize to Agility as iteration.
  3. The development team, at the start of the new iteration, breaks down the feature into multiple user stories – each with estimated effort hours and other contextual information.
  4. The user stories synchronize to Agility along with all these details.
  5. The product management team reviews the user stories definitions and adds comments. They also validate the effort hours estimated and spent.
  6. As the user stories are completed, the development team updates the status of the stories to ‘complete.’
  7. When all stories are completed, the status of feature in Agility also changes to ‘closed.’
