Tasktop Agile Planner


  • Agile is promising big returns, yet few have the ALM integration necessary to realize measurable productivity gains.
  • Due to a lack of integration with their work processes and tools, too many developers are resisting the move to Agile.
  • Managers continue to struggle with the lack of visibility between planning and production.

Agile Planner

The Tasktop Agile Planner leverages Mylyn connectors to address these pain points by giving Agile teams the ability to manage existing defect and project management systems directly from Eclipse, making it effortless to maintain project status awareness and keep plans up-to-date. Tasktop uniquely provides planning support that spans across multiple vendors’ solutions. For example, a story in Rally can be associated with defects in external systems such as JIRA and Bugzilla. The planner is available as both a rich desktop client and Eclipse plugin with support for Tasktop Certified Agile project management solutions including ThoughtWorks Studios’ Mingle, IBM Rational Team Concert, Rally, CollabNet’s ScrumWorks, Atlassian’s JIRA and VersionOne.


The Task Board view provides a visual representation of project status right in the IDE
