developerWorks: I'm Scott Laningham for IBM developerWorks. This drive towards a smarter and greener planet a lot of people are talking about — it's a very important thing at IBM, too.

And a one, and a two ...

Watch

I've been sitting here thinking about how a jazz group uses real-time collaboration to achieve something special. You know, we share ideas, we improvise on those ideas, and we come up with something bigger than we could have done separately.

Software development teams do a lot of the same kind of things. And the smarter their collaboration, the more likely they'll unlock the innovative ideas that'll help them build applications for that smarter planet that they need to deliver.

Some great up-tempo demos

With this Rational Build Forge and Rational Team Concert demo, you can get an overview of how Rational Build Forge V7.1 and Rational Team Concert integrate to provide software assembly for Jazz and traditional environments simultaneously. Registration and a JavaScript-enabled browser is required.

Check out some demos on developerWorks on IBM Rational Build Forge and IBM Rational Team Concert. Tools that'll help you save costs, reach that innovative collaboration that you want to get to, and deliver applications for a smarter planet.

It'll help you get your groove.

OK guys ... one, two, three, four.

[Music.]
