Are you treating your data with the respect it deserves? Is it seamlessly integrated with the other aspects of your software development lifecycle? For many of you, we know the answer is a resounding "maybe" -- so why not take a look at our newly updated overview of Integrated Data Management? It shows you how IBM's Optim portfolio can help you set up an integrated-yet-modular data management environment.
Central to the Optim family is InfoSphere Data Architect (formerly Rational Data Architect), a uniquely powerful data modeling tool that integrates IBM's Information Management and Rational solutions to help you make the most of your data. Want a closer look? Our new article on integrating InfoSphere Data Architect with Rational Team Concert illustrates how these two products can play well together. And for a clearer picture of the data modeling landscape, don't miss next week's virtual tech briefing, "Best practices in data modeling using InfoSphere Data Architect" (as well as this video interview with briefing host, Dr. Vladimir Bacvanski).
Trust us. Your data can do amazing things if you just show it a little love.
Until next week,
