Integration Adapter for IBM Rational Team Concert® Version 1.0.2

Tab navigation

The Software Development industry is replete with disparate ALM tools that are used ubiquitously and have eventually become the ‘best-of-breed’ tools. Integrating such tools with Rational® Team Concert is a challenge, and Kovair addresses this challenge with Kovair Rational Team Concert Integration adapter.

The integration of Rational Team Concert with other ALM tools is based on the Enterprise Service Bus architecture that requires only one adapter per tool, thereby making the integration environment readily scalable. The Enterprise Service Bus offered by Kovair is called Omnibus.

The Kovair Rational Team Concert Integration adapter helps in connecting Rational Team Concert to Omnibus and subsequently Rational Team Concert gets integrated to the other tools connected to Omnibus - specifically JIRA, Quality Center, SharePoint® and Team Foundation Server.

The Adapter from Kovair allows Rational Team Concert to synchronize it's work items with different external systems like Jira, HP® Quality Center, MS SharePoint® and MS Team Foundation Server. It supports bi-directional synchronization of work items across these tools. The integration rules can be easily configured by the customers using the SyncRules of Rational Team Concert and Kovair's configuration pages. This enables Rational Team Concert to become an integral part of a larger multi-vendor eco-system of tools typically found in organizations.
