America's skyscrapers, many built before World War Two, are showing their age. IBM's "building whisperer," Dave Bartlett, believes many of these buildings could use a diet.Bartlett, who leads IBM's smarter building initiative, is known as the "building whisperer" because he views buildings as living organisms, an approach that can help identify problems and suggest cost-effective ways of making buildings healthier and more energy-efficient.

A team of IBM top experts assigned to Nairobi today provided a cohesive framework and roadmap to the city to improve the flow of road traffic and increase revenues from the transportation sector. The recommendations complement Nairobi's considerable ongoing investment in underlying roadway infrastructure. They include making traffic information more readily available to citizens, motorists, police, policymakers and planners so that better transportation decisions can be made in the near and far term.

IBM says that several hospitals and clinics from Russia's rapidly evolving regions outside of Moscow and St Petersburg are tying up with it to modernise infrastructure and improve patient care.
It said a number of healthcare providers such as the Hospital of Murom Railway Station, the Clinic of Novosibirsk Institute of Blood Circulation Pathology in Siberia and the Emergency Hospital of Petrozavodsk have asked it to provide new information management systems giving doctors and medical staff rapid access to medical data and reducing waiting time for patients.

RSA, a very user friendly tool which help people to model their project accordingly. UML modelling, which is very much required for understanding their very project in a practical manner, can be done by RSA.
After giving training on this tool i think i m very much trained in this tool.

Innovate 2011 - Curtain Raiser by Ms. Bhawana V Gupta, IBM India, Technical Sales-Rational
How effective would it be if we let our customers tell us the features they want in a product we are planning to build, and let them prioritize these features and then we prioritize them against criteria that maximizes customer value and minimizes cost, build those features and make the product available to the market – resulting in maximum return on investment with a product our customers love!
Well, If the above appeals to you Rational Focal Point is your answer. From my experience with Focal Point over the last few years I have realised that this is one scenario which would be an eye catcher for many of us in this industry. I would definitely want to get you to know more about this tool. Let me introduce Focal Point to you more formally - its a unique management tool which automates, improves and supports product management and portfolio management. Be it something relatively simple as to what features would go into the product you build to making a more complex and important decision on which product to build, this tool come in very handy.
Making the right decision is always a challenge. We can make an adhoc and intuitive decision based on previous experiences or a more formal and a calculated one which is based on more critical business issues such as customer priority , market scenario etc.
Let me give you an example:
When we have two alternatives and one criteria, like which of the two between cars A and B is better in terms of mileage, its an easy comparison. But when we include more criteria to the list like which one has better mileage, comfort, speed, looks etc and then make a choice on the best alternative then it becomes a little complex. Imagine a situation where we need to choose between more alternatives (cars) C, D, E and F with increasing criteria set!
With Focal Point we solve this situation by doing a pair wise comparison. Compare two alternatives at a time according to one criterion. Then combine all of this and visualize your choices.
Sounds easy? You could also have multiple people making their choices based on their priorities and opinions and then get an overall visualization of them.
Now, a few features of Focal Point:
Take advantage of the Rational Innovate 2011 - Bangalore and Delhi when we showcase and talk about a number of such solutions. We have planned a number of tracks, Sessions and technical Workshops.

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!
The ever increasing challenges of modern day enterprises demand organization to design of effective Enterprise Architecture (EA) for them to succeed and stay alive in the competition. For EA to be effective, it requires collaboration from many professionals, some of them directly designing/modifying the EA and while others are stakeholders who use the EA to make critical strategic decisions. These decisions in turn define the direction of the organization.
To deliver effective EA, many users have to collaborate. It then becomes equally important to have proper "Visibility" to all users to avoid "reinventing of wheel". However at the same time it opens the doors for accidental modifications from inexperienced users creating inconsistency in the system. The after-effects are hard to imagine/foresee and sometimes unexpectedly destructive.
Now in this critical environment where "Visibility" and "Security" form two faces of the same coin, how do you manage effective delivery of EA? While there are many tools which allow creation of EA, IBM Rational System Architect (SA) comes bundled with answers to many more questions than just EA. While Rational System Architect gives you the platform and also forms the tool to design the EA, the Catalog Manager with its "Instance Level" and "Type Level" access Control capabilities complements, completes and addresses the key requirements of "Visibility" and "Security". There is more that catalog manager helps you with. Rational System Architect also offers a thin client known as System Architect XT (Extended Team) which helps sharing EA through browser. For an encyclopedia that contains EA artifacts to be made accessible by Rational System Architect XT, it must be an Enterprise encyclopedia controlled by Rational System Architect Catalog Manager.
