We worked with...IBM and looked into Collaborative Lifecycle Management tools that allow them to implement the whole SAFe framework so that their development can be done in a rapid fashion, and they can respond to those changes through technological releases more often.

—Zeeshan Huque, President, MarqueeTec Inc.,

Business Challenge story

The Bureau of Consular Affairs must deal with a massive amount of change. Because it oversees international travel issues, it must able to respond quickly when changes to laws, US foreign policy, and even the weather necessitate new travel guidelines or procedures. The bureau needed a system in place that would enable it to propagate changes throughout its technology systems quickly.

Transformation

The bureau worked with IBM Business Partner MarqeeTec to implement IBM collaborative lifecycle management tools that support the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Using IBM Ratoinal DOORS, IBM Rational Team Concert and IBM Rational Quality Manager software, the bureau can accelerate its development cycles and respond to changes faster.

Benefits

With approximately 50 percent of the bureau’s applications now in the CLM solution, the bureau has accelerated its development cycles. Plus, employees are able to easily access information about their projects because it’s centralized in the IBM applications.
