5 Benefits of Combining Jama Software with OpsHub

There’s no magic platform today all teams can rely on for every single development need. And even if such a solution existed, would anyone really want it?

One of the most amazing parts of product development is how every organization does things a little differently. And, within those companies, each team — whether it’s hardware, firmware, software or testing — has differing tools they’re utilizing from various parts of the development ecosystem that works best for their process.

At Jama, we think the last thing teams with tight timelines need is to feel constrained by platforms and tools. We love seeing their different methods and think competition amongst different solutions only makes quality stronger.

That’s one of the reasons Jama Software allows teams the flexibility to use a variety of tools through our expanding group of reliable partners, which can be partially facilitated by the OpsHub Integration Manager platform.

OpsHub helps teams make smarter decisions during development by making critical data available to stakeholders in their preferred systems. OpsHub also supports the integration of more than 50 Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), DevOps, IT Service Management (ITSM) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems.

OpsHub helps tie all of these solutions and tools together in Jama to keep teams working quickly while maintaining traceability. If you’re not using OpsHub with Jama yet, here are five reasons to start.

Bidirectional Sync Capability With Conflict Resolution
Whenever there’s a conflict, OpsHub automatically detects and resolves it between the source system and target system. Unlike other solutions, OpsHub also gives you the ability to consider the behavior in case of conflict.

For instance, if a field is simultaneously being edited in two integrated systems, OpsHub allows you to consider the behavior. So maybe you give one system precedence over the other, or create a custom rule that governs such scenarios. This helps solve conflicts immediately before they snowball into catastrophic errors.

Support for More Than 50 Systems on Its Integration Platform
So many teams are involved in developing a complex product, and they’re all using different tools to help them do their jobs better. The tools a testing team uses are vastly different than what a software team works with. That’s why OpsHub supports more than 50 systems, which covers all the popular ALM, DevOps, CRM and ITSM systems.

Support for Large Number of Entities
Not only does OpsHub support more systems than any other solution, it also supports almost all the entities in each of these systems. That includes custom entities in any of the supported systems on the platform. This is critical because it allows teams to use the tools to their full capability, without worrying about the possibility of whether or not some of the entities are supported on the integration platform or not.

Database Class and Liability and Recovery
With some other solutions, if your integration summary goes down, you have to go back and manually ensure that the changes that happened during that downtime are synced and reconciled. And many times, reconciliation is not even a possibility. OpsHub ensures that all alterations are properly processed and guarantees that connected systems are consistent.

Rich Functionalities
From process customization to history preservation, multi-project support to cross-system traceability, OpsHub has a ton of awesome functionalities to dig into.
