I know I’ve mentioned how my team uses ScrumWorks Pro here before. I just ran across a story on eWeek about a new integration that connects ScrumWorks Pro task management functionality with the inclusive IDE Tasktop Pro, which runs on Mylyn. It’s a powerful integration that would allow developers to streamline the relevant applications, documents, and source code within a single IDE. In fact, with the ScrumWorks Pro connector, Tasktop Pro users will be able to quickly turn emails or calendar invites into Product Backlog Items.
Tasktop already employs a groundbreaking piece of technology called the “degree of interest” model, which tracks developer behavior to only present the most relevant artifacts and information to the PBI being tackled. That level of focus allows developers to zero in on the task at hand, effectively ending the cycle of searching that can significantly disrupt productivity.
You can watch a screencast about the connector here.
