Get advanced baseline and release management capabilities
IBM® Rational® Synergy helps plan, track and centrally administer multiple projects and releases across your organization. It allows you to more easily determine all the files and logical changes that are contained within a particular release and includes automatic detection to help ensure complete and consistent builds. You can safely remove a high-impact change and incorporate it into a subsequent release.
Automate processes and tasks
This software provides a common language to help users interact with the project and each other in a consistent manner. Work assignments and tasks can be added to multiple release streams, simplifying parallel development. This task-based approach helps customize the standard workflow so it can match your preferred methodology. It includes process customization to help you achieve the development methodology—agile, hybrid or industry-specific—so you can realize process maturity and capability.
Deliver a highly scalable platform
This software provides a scalable, integrated platform that enforces governance, validates compliance, provides near real-time visibility, reduces administrative overhead and increases overall agility. It integrates with IBM Rational Change software to provide a single view of your development status simultaneously with the impact of change requests. It supports multiple operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Oracle Solaris, IBM AIX®, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and others.
Support software reuse and component-based development
IBM Rational Synergy helps accelerate development and reduce duplication of effort. The component repository allows software components to be uniquely identified and versioned for ease of reuse. It includes components that can be used as building blocks to develop other systems, reducing the cost of development. It includes product lines, parallel development and conflict detection to provide greater efficiency and effectiveness in managing your software development lifecycle.
