Integrating IBM Rational Requirements and HP ALM with Rational Lifecycle Adapters

If you use HP Application Lifecycle Management software (HP ALM) for quality management, you can use the IBM Rational Adapter for HP ALM to integrate data with Rational Requirements Composer, Rational DOORS Next Generation, Rational Team Concert, or Rational ClearQuest. Developers, testers, and analysts can then work in their own tools and collaborate with each other by using linked resources. The adapters also integrate the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) with selected non-IBM software. The first release includes adapters for HP ALM, Atlassian JIRA, and Git software.

If you use HP Application Lifecycle Management software (HP ALM) for quality management, you can use the IBM® Rational® Adapter for HP ALM to integrate data with Rational® Requirements Composer, Rational® DOORS® Next Generation, Rational Team Concert™, or Rational® ClearQuest®. Developers, testers, and analysts can then work in their own tools and collaborate with each other by using linked resources. Using this integrated environment, you can link test plans to associated requirements collections, and you can reconcile requirements collections with HP ALM test folders to ensure test coverage of requirements. You can also link failed test runs to work items or link change sets to defects that are tracked in HP ALM.

The Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters also integrate the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) with selected non-IBM software. The adapters enable IBM Rational customers to get greater value from CLM applications when working in an environment with ALM tools from different companies. The first release includes adapters for HP ALM, Atlassian JIRA, and Git software.
