3 CCF based TF  HP ALM / QC Synchronization 3 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

4 CCF based TF  ScrumWorks Pro Synchronization 4 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

5 Previous version: CCF Bidirectional synchronization between HP ALM Defects and Requirements with TeamForge Tracker Items and Planning Folders including comments and attachments Parent/child relationships are synched as well Associations between TF artifacts can be synched to HP ALM comments sections Bidirectionaly synchronization between ScrumWorks Pro Products and TeamForge projects Used in production by a double digit number of CollabNet customers for hundreds of thousands of artifacts HP‘s Printing division is using CCF with the largest QC installation world wide HP Gold Partner Certified Featured in HP Software Universe 2010 Keynote 5 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

6 CCF: Key differentiators Constantly synching (not batch based) Changes come through within seconds not hours Does not rely on QC timestamps but real transactions Failed shipments are stored, can be analyzed and replayed No silent skipping of failed artifact shipments Auto replay rules for locked artifacts Real data is transferred (no OSLCish mash up) All connected tools (desktops, reporting engines, CI) can have a look at the changes done in QC Users don‘t need to login into other tools Agile Open Source project with agile community Customers can always look at the source code and use it for their own purposes 6 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

7 Very agile and reactive community 7 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

8 Key differentiators (ctd) Sophisticated field data mapping Arbitrary mapping rules can be expressed One QC project can be mapped to many TF projects and vice versa Graphical field mapping wizard 8 Copyright © 2011 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

9 You spoke, we listened - Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers

10 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 10 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “My admins do not know Eclipse and prefer a native client to setup, configure and maintain CCF.”

11 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 11 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “I like to see what’s going on in my integration directly from TeamForge’s Web UI without a rich client.”

12 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 12 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “I like the power of the Eclipse based client but why do I need two different perspectives for CollabNet’s Tools?”

13 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 13 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “I want to automate setting up new mappings but do not like to mess with CCF’s internal data structures.”

14 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers Improved Remote Administration Web Interface (integrated into TF) CollabNet Eclipse Desktop Native Windows Client REST API for custom tools Improved Delegation Support Single Sign On with TF TF project admins can delegate CCF tasks dealing with mapped entities of their projects to ordinary users by using TF permissions Only a subset of mappings and actions is visible to users with limited permissions Improved Staging Support/Field Mapping Templates Templatize field mappings and save them for the whole project/connector Export templates and import them into your production system Sticky mappings: Change when template is changing 14 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

15 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 15 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “I cannot handle 50 projects on my own and like to delegate this functionality to my project admins.” Brian Richardson, Pimco

16 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 16 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “Delegating admin tasks is great but I do not want somebody accidentally destroying work of others.”

17 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 17 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “I do not want yet another place to configure permissions.”

18 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers Improved Remote Administration Web Interface (integrated into TF) CollabNet Eclipse Desktop Native Windows Client REST API for custom tools Improved Delegation Support Single Sign On with TF TF project admins can delegate CCF tasks dealing with mapped entities of their projects to ordinary users by using TF permissions Only a subset of mappings and actions is visible to users with limited permissions Improved Staging Support/Field Mapping Templates Templatize field mappings and save them for the whole project/connector Export templates and import them into your production system Sticky mappings: Change when template is changing 18 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential

19 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 19 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “We have company wide mapping rules and if those change, all related field mappings should change as well.”

20 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 20 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “Well, yeah, this one is an exception, but only those three fields differ, the rest follows the template.”

21 You spoke we listened: Feature Requests from our Enterprise Customers 21 Copyright © 2008 CollabNet, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Confidential “Once I have tested my mappings in my staging system, I like to export them and import them into production.”
