Application development organizations spend millions of dollars a year on multitude of siloed point function tools encompassing requirement management, architecture, coding, build, testing, tracking, release management and more. These tools live in isolation, rely mostly on traditional broken manual procedures to synchronize data of one tool with the other and as a result do not play well together.

Integration is barely present for organizations choosing best-of-breed tools from different vendors suited to different lifecycle phases. Here are ten compelling reasons why an organization must connect these multiple lifecycle tools for an optimum application development environment.
