OpsHub Brings Integration to the Masses

OpsHub, a provider of integration and migration solutions for ALM and DevOps tools, has offered a free edition of its integration solution OpsHub Integration Manager (OIM).

The OIM Free Edition enables the bi-directional integration of Atlassian Jira, ServiceNow, Microsoft Azure DevOps Server (TFS), Azure DevOps Services (VSTS), and Micro Focus ALM / QC.

The OIM Free Edition supports nearly all major features of its paid editions. Some of the notable features include:

  • Bi-directional integration. Data flow is not just one way (e.g. migration); you can support full integration and synchronization of data between two systems.
  • Rich-text fields/multi-valued fields mapping. The free edition supports migration of more complex data types with rich text and multiple values.
  • Comments/attachments synchronization. In several tools a lot of important context is stored in comments and attachments. The free edition will support synchronization of this data.
  • Sync reports and notification. You will always be aware of how synchronization is proceeding and any action needed to be taken on your part.
  • Recovery and resume. Support recovery from failures during synchronization.

The free edition contains nearly identical support as its paid edition, however, with limited integration options. Differences in integration support between both platforms can be found here.

Our Take

Effective product delivery practices require effective tooling. We recommend a fully integrated application suite to ensure you have complete traceability from requirements all the way through to delivery and support.

The best possible scenario would be a single application suite that covers all of your requirements. We recognize for many organizations this is neither realistic nor practical. Some of the fully integrated single vendor suites may not be suitable for a given organization or there are well-established existing products already in place. Integration products like OIM enable integration between distinct systems to create a fully integrated suite, giving you complete awareness and capability across your entire application lifecycle.

We recommend always piloting your changes before making big investments and scaling. The OIM Free Edition gives you the opportunity to pilot its capabilities to determine if it’s right for your organization and brings you closer to your goals.
