The ProdPad-Rally Integration is Here!

April 3, 2014

ProdPad Updates

Rally IntegratioToday we’re happy to announce our latest integration, with Rally Software. Rally is one of the biggest cloud-based solution providers for managing Agile software development, and so this new integration closes a gap for even more product management teams.

How the ProdPad/Rally integration works

The ProdPad and Rally solutions work together in harmony so that you don’t need to duplicate efforts. The integration uses custom field mapping and status syncing, and cross-references both systems to allow seamless progression from one stage to the next. An integration can be established for any project in your Rally account. When ideas that are ready for development they can be pushed through to that project with the click of a button.

We know that for teams to adopt new systems and processes, it’s essential that they can be included in existing workflows. It’s for this reason that we recommend managing your product backlog in ProdPad, and development and sprint backlogs through Rally. Product managers can continue to freely collect ideas, prioritize them and build out product specs in ProdPad, before carefully controlling what makes its way to development in their Rally workspace.

Reliable and useful integrations are central to the ProdPad’s evolution as an indispensable product management solution. And our friends at Rally are excited about this integration too. Keith Boswell, who manages Business Development, had this to say:

“We’re excited about this integration with ProdPad, which will help agile development teams using Rally’s ALM solutions to work effectively with product management to build innovative, user-centric products that are based on well-developed specs and user stories.”

How to integrate Rally with ProdPad

Users of ProdPad can find out more about how to integrate Rally projects with their accounts. And we’re here to talk with any Rally customers about how ProdPad can help you do better product management too.

Janna Bastow is co-founder of ProdPad, software that helps product managers plan and deliver better products. Janna also organizes ProductTank events around the world, including Mind The Product, a global community of product managers. She likes to inspire great product conversations by asking: “What problem are you trying to solve?”
