Kovair Creates Multi-Tool Integrations With IBM Rational Tools for a Global IT Services Company

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2008) - Kovair Software, Inc. announced the creation of a seamless integrated environment by integrating five different Application Lifecycle Management tools for one of the top ten global IT Services Companies using its Omnibus, Integration Bus for IT™ technology.

This IT Company is currently using a mix of standard tools from different vendors including IBM Rational and some internal tools to support individual phases of Software Development and IT Services Delivery. These tools are not well connected with each other and the information flow between them is mostly manual, lacking coordination and synchronization.

"This company was finding it extremely difficult to gain total visibility into the status and progress of development projects," said Kovair Software Vice President Engineering, Atanu Majumdar. "They needed an open integration framework that can connect all the currently used tools in a simple and effective manner. Using Kovair's Omnibus SOA based Integration Technology we integrated these tools in less than 2 months."

This Global company is using Rational RequisitePro for Requirements Management, Rational Rose for Analysis & Design, Rational Test Manager for Test Management and internal tools for Business Modeling and Project Management. Kovair built the adapters for these three IBM tools and two internal tools to connect them to Kovair's Omnibus Integration Bus for IT. Having this bus architecture, Kovair obviated the need of as many as ten point to point integrations to achieve similar results.

"What this integration project indicates is that while other vendors may be making claims around the integration of their ALM/ SDLC tools on a common platform, Kovair has actually demonstrated it to a global company," said Bipin Shah, CEO of Kovair Software. "We are looking forward to addressing similar integration challenges in other companies having a wide range of tools from multiple vendors on diverse platforms and located across the globe."

The integration adapters are available now as an add-on to Kovair's flagship product, Kovair Global Lifecycle with the built in SOA based Omnibus Integration Bus and Omniprocess Workflow engine.
