Businesses benefit from flexibility

With OSLC’s open and scenario-based approach, businesses benefit from the ability to tie disparate tools together. This collaborative approach gives our consultants the flexibility to make lifecycle tool choices based on specific client project demands.

Integrations for less

The Eclipse Mylyn project integrates tasks from more than thirty independent desktop and web products. Keeping up with that sometimes borders on the insane. OSLC offers us a way forward for doing these integrations in a simpler and cheaper way.

OSLC vision

With OSLC, we’re applying best practices in the Internet to the area of lifecycle tools, essentially transforming lifecycle resources into “hyper-data”, just like hypertext enables fully connected, flexible content.

Data producers and consumers both win

So there’s a big business benefit to both the producers and the consumers of the OSLC APIs. The producers get to create a standard API that a variety of tools can build on and can create high—very high quality integrations for, whether its integrations of the IDE or integrations with mobiles devices for non-programmers to access. And then you can see the benefit that results for the consumers of the APIs. They get a consistent user experience across all of their ALM technologies, and they get state of the art tool support, even for legacy systems they can’t yet migrate from.
