HPQC Integration

Jama Software unites business analysts responsible for requirements with QA teams responsible for testing.

It is pretty well established that the cost of correcting errors increases dramatically the later they are discovered in the development process. By integrating Jama with HP Quality Center (HPQC), teams can ensure 100% test coverage and eliminate unnecessary rework and defects that cost development teams 10x more to fix later in a release cycle.

How do these tools integrate? 

jama-integrations-hub-tables-02

Automate the process of synchronizing requirements, test cases and relationships between Jama and HPQC. This way, you’ll keep the entire cross-functional team up-to-speed on the latest scope being discussed and approved for development. At any time in the process, team members can collaborate in Jama on key decisions, issues or questions affecting the product in the proper context. This provides complete quality assurance as well as visibility and traceability throughout the process, which equates to significant time and cost savings.

USE JAMA FOR: USE HPQC FOR:
Requirements collaboration Test case management
Traceability and change control Automated test plans and results
Release planning and management Regression testing
Robust reporting and document creation Defect tracking

JIRA Integration

With Jama and JIRA, you can see the entire picture of product development across teams, data types and time.

How do these tools integrate?

jira-jama   jama-integrations-hub-tables-01

Jama connects the original goal – from the strategic objectives down to epics and stories – to the active development tasks kept in JIRA. With the Jama Integration Hub, the relevant project status stay in sync across tools, visible in the format and context that is right for the user’s role.

Change happens at different times on the business and development teams. By connecting the business’s strategic objective or MRD to development’s stories, test cases and defects, you can highlight and respond to the impact in real-time. There’s no need to wait for an official alignment meeting.

Throughout the process, relevant statuses stay in sync, visible in the format and context that’s right for the user.

integrations-icons-rally

Rally Integration

Jama Software bridges the gap between product planning and development, ensuring everyone knows what is being built and why.

Businesses choose Agile to speed time to market and stay responsive to constantly changing customer needs. Development teams need upstream visibility to ensure they’re satisfying customer requirements. Product Managers need downstream visibility to ensure progress is on track to meet project deadlines. As development cycles accelerate, it is more important than ever that project teams ensure development activities align with business priorities.

How do these tools integrate? 

jama-integrations-hub-tables-rally

With Jama, customer needs and project expectations are clarified up front. As developers track stories and sprints in Rally, Jama provides cross-functional teams a place to openly discuss customer needs, manage changes, track decisions and capture approvals on project plans. At any time in the process, business and development team members can collaborate in Jama on key decisions, issues or questions affecting the product in the proper context.

Jama’s integration with Rally creates an ongoing feedback loop, giving everyone confidence that development activities map back to customer expectations and priorities. This integration is an ideal solution for “WaterScrumFall” organizations practicing a hybrid approach to Agile, where Agile development teams work in real-time with stakeholders and formally document requirements to meet regulatory compliance and contractual commitments.

USE JAMA FOR: USE RALLY FOR:
Shared vision of plans Managing your backlog
Collaboration and reviews Agile project management

TFS Integration

Jama expands your teams’ ability to collaborate, define and prioritize development initiatives in Microsoft Visual Studio® Team Foundation Server (TFS).

How do these tools integrate?

jama-integrations-hub-tables-04

Jama provides teams working in TFS a single source of truth with collaboration and traceability to connect teams to improve process and gain back valuable time.

Integrating Jama and TFS enables product teams and stakeholders working in Jama to collaboratively write, validate, approve and communicate requirements and story prioritization. Development teams work in the tools they’re comfortable using, such as TFS, while executing with the confidence of knowing what is being built and the why. This creates an environment of transparency to ensure cross-functional teams are working off the same plan, while enabling them to make decisions and execute on those decisions, through a continuous dialogue in the proper context.

USE JAMA FOR: USE TFS FOR:
Requirements management — definition and collaboration Agile sprint planning
Traceability and change control Task management and estimations
Release planning and management Implementation
Robust reporting and document creation Defects and Issue tracking

VersionOne Integration

Successful companies have multiple teams working in parallel, all with shared purpose and understanding of company goals. To keep up with accelerating development cycles, team coordination is critical. Development team members need visibility to the most up-to-date requirements and product decisions to ensure they’re satisfying customer needs. Product Managers, Business Analysts, and the rest of the company need visibility to the work in progress, and opportunities to adapt based on new information. With little room for error, a tight communication feedback loop is essential.

Using Jama and the Integrations Hub powered by Tasktop, the business and development can stay in sync without breaking their workflow in Jama or VersionOne. Developers track active backlog items and sprints in VersionOne. Jama provides cross-functional teams a place to openly discuss customer needs, manage changes, track decisions and capture approvals on project plans. At any time in the process, business and development team members can collaborate in Jama on key decisions, issues or questions affecting the product and sync relevant data to VersionOne in the form of future backlog item updates, comments, and status updates. VersionOne users can send status updates, questions and comments to Jama to clarify requirements and share progress.

Key Benefits Include: 

  • Connect strategic decisions between business and development
  • Continuously sync business requirements with Agile backlog items
  • Maintain Agile processes in development, and increase visibility to the rest of the organization
  • As changes happen, notify those impacted in both tools
  • Manage complex portfolios of products and projects

How it Works:

jama-integrations-hub-tables-05
