Learn how Rational Software Architect can help to improve design and be more productive with team collaboration.

As software developers, engineers, architects, or programmers, we all do design. But how can you improve upon your designs? You probably do it now through "peer reviews" or "architectural reviews", which can often take a lot of time to:

  • Prepare (reports, presentations)
  • Coordinate a meeting (with one or more busy peers)
  • Capture feedback (writing up suggestions)
  • Following up

Bottom line: your team's time is valuable, and improving designs is a team collaboration effort that we recognize needs to be more productive for the entire team to deliver software that powers our business.
