How to share DoDAF2 data with Rational System Architect
Sharing enterprise architecture data across modeling tools, databases and analysis tools can be accomplished using spreadsheets. This is especially true for DoDAF2 data where spreadsheets, like the SV-06 System Resource Flow matrix and OV-03 Operational Resource Flow matrix, are both universally used and well defined. Recent changes to the DoDAF2 implementation in Rational System Architect make importing data from spreadsheets easy to do and sufficient to generate DoDAF2 diagrams, matrices and reports. While this tutorial uses examples based on importing SV-06 System Resource Flow matrix data into Rational System Architect’s DoDAF2, this technique can be used to import other spreadsheets into DoDAF2 and into other frameworks.

When your app crashes, you want to know absolutely everything!
If software engineering was like civil engineering, then mobile apps would be as rock solid as the average modern bridge. However, software engineering is a very different discipline - and a much younger one - than civil engineering. We have best practices and design patterns to help us write excellent software, but it is almost impossible to guarantee a piece of software will never crash. This is an even bigger challenge in today's mobile apps which, thanks to very short release cycles, do not enjoy as much quality assurance as do other kinds of software. In this article, you will understand how the automated crash reporting feature of IBM Mobile Quality Assurance can make your mobile app as strong as a bridge.
