Unique in the software delivery marketplace, the innovation enables bi-directional synchronization of information, automation of release-cycle triggers and comprehensive data capture and reporting between an infinite number of software tools

Once the Universal Adapter establishes a connection between two software tools, teams can reuse the integration at will and share or exchange their integrations with others, either inside or outside of the organization.

ConnectALL, a software value stream integration provider dedicated to helping companies achieve higher levels of agility, predictability, velocity and system delivery to bring innovation to market faster, today announced that its Universal Adapter has been received by the U.S. Patent Office (USPTO) and is under review. The Universal Adapter is an unparalleled innovation in the industry, enabling software teams to quickly generate persistent, two-way connections between any type and number of applications and tools that hold relevance for the software development lifecycle. This interconnection enables team functionality and project visibility never before available:

  • Bi-directional synchronization of project-related data between an unlimited number of software applications and tools. These include not only commonly used software delivery tools but also PM products like Trello and Asana, CRM platforms such as Salesforce, and even legacy and custom-developed in-house applications.
  • Capture project data from any source, from project planning to code, build, test, and even post-release monitoring, making it available to both users and their tools.
  • Trigger an action in any application or tool, including definitive functions such as code build, with full reporting on every action.

“As Forrester noted in its January 2020 report, ‘Holistic Solutions Drive the Value in Value Stream,’ software delivery must be fast, collaborative, and strategic, yet it is currently elusive for most organizations,” said ConnectALL COO Lance Knight. “Key challenges cited by Forrester in the report are poorly integrated toolchains, organizational and metric misalignment, and difficulty wrangling multiple parallel workstreams. ConnectALL’s Universal adapter equips software teams to overcome all three of these challenges with minimal configuration.”

With the integrations achieved through the Universal Adapter, teams can quickly add new tools to their toolchain, with any activities that take place in one tool’s status interface automatically being reflected in the other. All resulting data can easily be extracted for reporting or visualization by teams, management and other stakeholders, who can also receive automated notifications when project statuses change.

“An explosion in the software tooling market is giving teams far more flexibility in tool selection, but it’s also increasing the challenge of seamless collaboration. ConnectALL’s Universal Adapter eliminates this impediment,” noted Knight. “Once the Universal Adapter establishes a connection between two software tools, teams can reuse the integration at will and share or exchange their integrations with others, either inside or outside of the organization. Such limitless connectivity propels value stream management at a level unprecedented in the history of software.”
