Automating software development with Rational Method Composer and Jazz: Part 1: Enact IBM Rational Method Composer process descriptions in IBM Rational Team Concert

This demo shows how to enact IBM Rational Method Composer process descriptions in IBM Rational Team Concert. This combination provides a powerful solution for process management, process enactment, and measured capability improvement. It uses the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM), which includes Rational Method Composer process assets, a Rational Team Concert process template, and more.

This demo shows how to enact IBM® Rational® Method Composer process descriptions in IBM® Rational Team Concert™. This combination provides a powerful solution for process management, process enactment, and measured capability improvement. It uses the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM), which includes Rational Method Composer process assets, a Rational Team Concert process template, and more.

Rational Method Composer Version 7.5.1 provides new Rational Team Concert interoperability, including work item template export and creation of plans and work items in based on proven process patterns. Practitioners can get the relevant process and practice guidance directly, in the context of their work assignments, and method authors can use Rational Team Concert for configuration and change management of their process assets. In addition, because Rational Method Composer and the Rational Team Concert for Eclipse client can share a common user interface, by using a procedure known as shell sharing, team members can quickly and easily update their team process descriptions within the Rational Team Concert for Eclipse client.

The Rational Team Concert work item service is shared by the other CLM tools in the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM), which is based on Jazz™ technology: IBM® Rational® Quality Manager, Rational® Requirements Composer, and Design Manager. Therefore, many of these capabilities are also available to those who use those tools.
