CLM has been developed to support transparent, agile development in a collaborative fashion. That was the main focus in the beginning and is designed for transparency across the stakeholders. Gradually Enterprise customers wanted to give access of the Work Items to the external world in a restricted fashion. It is just a question how to implement all that without sacrificing the benefits such as usability and performance. One way of doing this is having the reverse proxy sitting outside of the firewall. Another method is to provide customers a way to reach the server(s) e.g. by providing a VPN tunnel. Or you have to punch a hole into the firewall to be able to reach the public URI's. In this article we are trying to explain one of the ways of providing external access to CLM. (through proxy)
JKE as a product company wanted to have a mechanism to expose the CCM server to their end customers to create a new Feature into the existing products list and even wanted to keep track of the progress of the same. One CLM instance/server is exclusively allocated for the JKE internal team for their product development lifecycle (Name:-CLM). The second instance of CLM will be used to give access to the external users to isolate the production server from external world (Name:-CLMEXT). One user id will be provided for each customer with restricted access to fulfill the following conditions.
One user id for each customer and one JKE id for the sales team
Each customer will get access only to their specific features and its workflow.
Only common features are accessible to all the customers.
Sales team should be in a position to respond to the queries from the customers through pre-configured responses.
Reverse proxy has to be configured in JKE reverse proxy server to provide access to the external customers. (Reverse proxy can be configured within CLM also.)
Once the features are been created in CLMEXT by the customers, JKE team can validate the same and a new WI will be added manually into the CLM server. (Note:- Work items can be added to CLM server automatically using cross server communication)
A link from the CLM WIs to CLMEXT Feature will be created and will be visible only from CLM by the JKE team.
JKE team has to manually update the status of the progress of the new Features in CLMEXT.

Have you tried the sandboxes
on jazz.net ??
Well, I just did, I was
looking to have a quick and easy way to 'see' what are the new capabilities
available with CLM 2012. CLM 2012 is comprized of Rational
Team Concert 4.0, Rational
Quality Manager 4.0 and Rational
Requirements Composer 4.0. and
they have a LOT of new capabilities.
But I didnt want to dedicate
my hardware just to seeing what the new versions have en-stored for
me. So I went to https://jazz.net/products/sandbox/
All you need is a jazz.net
id (registration is pretty simple) and within a matter of seconds I had the products
provisioned for me. I can go to each product on the web and see the functionality. Whats more is I can connect my RTC desktop clients to these images too !! Now thats what I call ease of use As mentioned on the sandbox home page, the 4.0 sandboxes are available until Dec. 31st
Now sitting in my office (or
home) I can access these products and see the new capabilities in action. Try it yourself !
IBM Rational® solutions for collaborative design management enable an organization to bring together a broad set of stakeholders—customers, line-of-business managers, operations, development teams, and others—to contribute to and influence the design of products, software and systems. This new level of collaboration can help to drive improved quality and achieve successful business outcomes.
IBM® Rational® Rhapsody® Design Manager and IBM Rational Software Architect Design Manager provide an intuitive, web-based and IBM Rational Jazz-enabled user experience to:
- Engage all stakeholders in the design process with self-serve web-based access to designs from anywhere—speeding decision-making with automated design reviews.
- Unify designs across the lifecycle and teams enabling multi-design search for review, analysis and reuse.
- Accelerate project delivery with automated reporting for audits and compliance, and rapid adoption to improve overall team effectiveness.

Many teams find it challenging to get a project started quickly, to get team members oriented, to set up and configure tools, and to take advantage of proven patternsof success to do their jobs. Many other teams are required to document their processes for compliance reasons, and show that they follow that process.
Jazz allows us to create a new process template or customize an exisiting process template in RRC, RTC & RQM.
Jazz tools (RRC,RTC & RQM) have pre-defined process templates which can be modified according to the project needs. Process template has different components such as Overview, Timelines, Roles, Permissions, Access Control, Configuration Data and Process Description. Each of these components can be customized according to your project needs.
Read through this article "How to customize process and project templates in Rational Requirements Composer 4.0" to know about the steps to customize process templates in Jazz and how these templates can be shared across the project team. Article also describes the benefits of cusomizing the process templates and project templates in RRC.
Although, article talks about Customizing RRC process templates, same approach is applied for customizing Rational Team Concert and Rational Quality Manager Process Templates.

Yesterday when I was having a cup of tea with the folded newspaper , I got a chance to notice various mobile phones, So called Smartphone. I was impressed by the features and other fantasies.
They were promising but suddenly questioned myself "Do I need to pay about half a lakh rupees just for a phone ?" Whats your opinion .....
I would be glad to know your ideas on this ...

Today, a major portion of newly developed enterprise applications is based on Internet connectivity of a geographically distributed work force that all need on-line access to their respective information
systems. To prevent the performance-related issues in these newly developed web-based applications, development teams should have ability to validate the scalability and reliability of application before
deployment at production sites.
Main benefit of an effective performance testing tool is to ensure the availability, scalability, robustness, and responsiveness of an application with the end-users and client’s business perspective
IBM Rational Performance Tester offers a very simple-to-use test recorder, automated data manipulation, advanced and flexible workload scheduling, real-time reporting and a highly scalable execution
engine to help ensure that applications are prepared to handle large user loads without compromising on the overall performance of the system, even with limited memory and processing resources
Rational Performance tester supports:
* Multi-user performance testing to validate web application scalability before deployment, with both a Windows and a Linux-based user interface
* GUI-based test creation
* flexible test customisation with Java code
* load and performance testing of applications including web, Siebel 7.7 and SAP
Join us for a quick tour, demo on Rational Performance Tester at the Innovate 2011!
I'm working on.........
I am Guru Prasad, working
for Tata Consultancy Services. I am working as Rational Product Specialist
& part of TCS Rational CoE team. I have conducted several internal
webinars, workshops on various Rational tools including Rational Software
Architect, Rational Requirement Composer, Rational Requisite Pro etc. I always
like to develop custom extensions for Rational tools.
keep myself skilled & updated on rational trends
I always focus on Self educating myself on
IBM Rational tools. Most of the time I spend browsing IBM Jazz.net, IBM
Developer Works & go through the latest releases of the tools, discussion
forums, articles on Rational tools. Also, I attend most of the webinars
conducted by IBM Rational User Group. I do write Rational articles & publish
them in the internal sites. I also assist my team on POC activities / publishing
white papers on Rational in External forums like IBM Developerworks, jazz.net
Since most of the Rational tools
are Eclipse based, Rational users can develop custom extensions easily using the
Eclipse Plugin development features. IBM provides REST APIs , Java APIs to
extend features of Jazz based tools. Users can connect to jazz.net, RUG forum
& discuss on the queries specific to such implementation.
I am an active member of IBM Rational User
Group & IBM Certified Deployment Professional & Solution Designer. I
have developed several plugins for Rational tools on demand.
