The collaboration brings together Business Automation from UiPath and Planview’s Value Stream Management. It will enable teams to automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks across the Planview VSM suite. The combination should help reduce manual errors during the activities, increase efficiency and shorten product delivery time.

Louise K. Allen, Chief Product Officer, Planview, commented, “Our collaboration with UiPath is a game-changer for technology leaders looking to solve efficiency and visibility challenges. Rapid and continuous automation testing is no longer a nice-to-have; it’s critical to accelerating digital transformation and fostering the future of connected work.

“A recent Planview report found that bottlenecks frequently happen at the end of the release process, with 40% of end-to-end delivery time spent on software testing and release activities. This integration will offer visibility and control over the entire software development lifecycle, enabling teams to optimize workflows for better outcomes.”

Elevating automation for Planview Tasktop Hub

The Planview Tasktop Hub provides scalable, sophisticated integrations with over 60 tools and applications, including 40* Application Lifecycle Tools, including applications from Atlassian (Jira),  ServiceNow, Microsoft (Azure DevOps), Jama Software, Microsfocus, Tricentis, IBM, BMC, Salesforce and PTC.

With the combined solutions, an organisation can create automated testing and other DevOps processes for modern and legacy products. This eliminates or speeds up the manual tasks required for developers and frees up time, adding better value to their organisation.

Dr Gerd Weishaar, Senior Vice President of Product Management at UiPath, commented, “Together with Planview, CIOs and IT leaders can achieve software testing outcomes faster at a lower cost with our intuitive and scalable testing solutions included in the market’s only end-to-end automation platform. Organizations can leave disparate legacy testing tools behind and consolidate on the UiPath platform to modernize how teams manage and execute delivery of their Product.”

Planview Tasktop Hub enables CIOs and Transformation leaders to enable Product rather than Project centricity within their organisation. The integration of UiPath RPA tools will further accelerate time to value. When Tasktop Hub can identify bottlenecks, RPA technology will help eliminate them. In turn, this speeds up process time and reduces time to market. With products reaching the market faster, revenue will improve. The solution enables organisations to implement the Flow Framework, created by the company’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr Mik Kersten.

Enterprise Times: What does this mean

This partnership or collaboration brings together two leaders in their respective RPA and Value Stream Management technologies. The technology is complementary to each other. The press release does not detail what integrations will be enabled or any limitations. While the TaskTop hub product page notes over 60 integrations, the press release offers a more cautious 40, as noted above.  Also, there is no indication if the integration is available now, when it will be released and also whether there is any pricing associated with it.
