Summary:  In the third demo of this three-part series that shows how to enact IBM Rational Method Composer process descriptions in IBM Rational Team Concert, we use a sample scenario: The JKE organization needs to develop an HR system to manage its resources. They decide that adopting a commercial off-the-shelf (or COTS) product is more viable than developing a system from scratch. However, the company has no previous experience with COTS development, so they decide to look into whether there are practices that can guide them through selecting, adapting, and deploying the COTS software.

In the third demo of this three-part series that shows how to enact IBM® Rational® Method Composer process descriptions in IBM® Rational Team Concert™, we use a sample scenario: The JKE organization needs to develop an HR system to manage its resources. They decide that adopting a commercial off-the-shelf (or COTS) product is more viable than developing a system from scratch. However, the company has no previous experience with COTS development, so they decide to look into whether there are practices that can guide them through selecting, adapting, and deploying the COTS software.

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.
